I have one measly jar jam packed with the last bit of Edgeworth RR here, Sutliff is the closest but it's more of a dry cocoa profile whereas Edgeworth was pure molasses Burley goodness. A garage full of tubs could persuade me of all my tobacco and pipes save for a cob to burn it in. It would require a moment of delineation but presented such an opportunity that would be brief.

The disappearing OTC problem is only getting worse, I still buy tubs of CH and PA at the grocery store. Always have, never a tobacco shop or online. Those days have already slipped away and are circling the drain. It will never be cheaper than now. It will never be more available than now.

Your problem Ruff, is, you fell in love with too many tobaccos :facepalm:
Me, i'm still lamenting the demise of the old Balkan Sobranie 759.

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.
So I might as well get flamed some more. I have a lot of Pike Place, including many 8 oz tins. A Burley based Balken that is to me, as good as it gets for a Balkan. It got disappeared like a Soviet era dissident air-brushed out of all existing photographs. Tobacco Reviews removed all traces. Google will give you a little info, but not much. Pike Place plays hard-ball with their trade-mark.

I’d give my left nut for a few tins of Blackwoods flake.
So I know I will get flamed some more, but I have a lot of Blackwoods tins aging away.
To make amends, I will keep track of those who miss whatever, Blackwoods, etc and spread some out when my command center is completed this spring. Just need some interior finish and many shelves. Not sure my nuts have much utility and for sure no value.

They have turned from McClelland and Esoterica to Heine's Blend.

Next it will be selling at 4noggins for $1500 a tub.

McClelland and their Ketchup blends I wasn't into . Their non ketchup Virginia's were great .
This is my main bitch, moan etc.
I never met a McClelland Virginia I didn't like.
I have 16 tins in the cellar, 6 of which are 100g tins. Not nearly enough.

Welcome.
