so happy to get this. You pay a lot of money for old tobacco, so when you find something on the internet you really want you're equal parts happy to have snagged some and scared the seal won't be any good. This tin looks identical to my 1983 tin. The colors were much better on this tin, like it had been stored somewhere dark. I don't know who all owned the Kentucky Club name over the years and before Middleton. I am going to take an educated guess that this is a 1990s tin. The 1983 tin smelled like chocolate and is like smoking chocolate cake. This one has that, but the primary thing I get from this is some dark, sweet fruit. I'm looking forward to smoking a bowl of this tonight.

This will be a special occasion tobacco for me. Glad I have two 14oz tins jarred up. It's really special and there is no other tobacco I'd be this excited to get. If I never get any more of this it's nice to know that I actually have enough around now to smoke the occasional bowl and it should last me a long time at that rate.

Great blend. Too bad it's no longer in production. I mixed my Kentucky Club Mild with 5 Brothers and am down to my last 2 ounces. Enjoy your moment.

That's beautiful tin art through the years. I'd put money on that horse!

"You don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows." Somebody said that about Kentucky Club, once. I don't remember who.
