I’d give my left nut for a few tins of Blackwoods flake.
Yikes!
Hey, I’m old, I have no use for it. Not that anyone would want it....

Sorry I probably shouldn't have assumed everyone would be familiar with the initials. But they are the blending house currently making the products for fribourg and Treyer, astleys, rattray's, wessex, solani, McConnell, etc etc

Pike Place. I never even had a chance to buy any. A gentleman I met in Birmingham gave me about an ounce and said don’t get used to, they don’t sell it anymore. I was immediately in love. I’ve heard that Seattle Pipe Club has a crumble cake version of it out but I’m afraid it won’t be the same. That and the Mayor did me the same way with some vintage Three Nuns and Old Grandad. Both were good stuff. Or would that be “stuffs”? Grammar is not my strong point.

I may be one of the few that misses Granger in the pouch. It always tasted better than the tub to me.

The whole pike place thing confuses me. At the time it was available they could have easily just renamed it and put it right back on the market. They were only told to stop using the name I thought? Not sure but it seems like it would have been a simple solution so I would guess there was more to it

There is a bright side to deep cellar method on your favorites.
I have McClelland blends up the wazoo.
And some other extinct blends.
Tobacco is a great investment which will keep getting better with age, and, all the while, becomes more valuable.
Had I only doubled on the Edgeworth Slices. That would be epic right now.
Yes . I have most all the blends I've loved that are gone... minus the London Dock . My wife scored a good amount of three nuns a few years ago andb8ll never thank her enough for pouncing on it . I have on e tin of Edgeworth sl8ces 5hst has been opened and jarred .... once in a while , I'll smoke a slice ... it's incredible
Nothing wrong with cellaring these days . Years ago I would have thought it silly .. but years ago there wasn't an issuse with getting something
