Scottish Cake is yum
Can't wait to try it. Almost grabbed multiple tins but I have such a backstock to try and I want to make sure I like something before going all in. There's so much good tobacco out there I just find myself constantly sampling
I won't discourage variety. There's probably 50 - 60 blends currently open in my rotation. It doesn't matter to me if I'm smoking Carter hall or Stonehaven, the variety and constant changing keeps things fresh and fun
It is one of my favorite things about pipe tobacco, it sates the manic part of my personality. And I think I first saw you mention something about McConnell blends last month. Thanks for the heads up!

I like damn near everything coming from Kohlhase & Kopp (McConnell, wessex, rattray's, Fribourg & Treyer, solani, etc) They seem to keep their lines more compact and concentrate on quality instead of just throwing sh*t against the wall to see what sticks.

This is all just my opinion and the blends just click with me.

Welp, I guess 4noggins doesn't have inventory control either. They just sent me an email and a refund without consulting me for the St. James Flake. This seems like an odd practice - why not offer me some other options than just refund & ship?

I just put a Watch City Cigar order i for

16oz Watch City Slices
8oz Watch City Black Magic
8oz Watch City The Churchwarden

All these blends are new to me, and never smoked any of them. First order placed in over a year, hopefully spice things up for me. My pipes have been resting, been on a cigar hiatus. I also got a new job with an airline and get free travel, so that's where the cigar hiatus started. Easier to travel with. I was in Charlotte North Carolina, for a week of training, i totally forgot about McCranies .......

Welcome back! Haven't tried any of those but have been impressed with every Watch City blend I've tried. Ernie is a magician!
