GH3 – The C.O.R.P.S. Show’s 10th Anniversary Blend from 1994, giving the contents 22-plus years of aging. Fine, well aged stoved Virginia leaf was combined with Cyprian Latakia and Basma to produce a blend that the C.O.R.P.S. could be proud of. Just 1 tin available for $18 – SOLD


VV3 – Gawith & Hoggarth’s Best Brown #2 in 50g tins that are dated to 2012. Blended from exceptional Virginia and Burley leaf, Lakeland style processed and then a subtle note of sweetness of some kind has been added. I have 2 tins available for $12 per tin


RB3 – A super rare, seldom seen original PCCA blend that is factory date stamped all the way back to 1992, this is a 100g tin of Blackjack. A very heavy Latakia blend with a back drop of Virginia and Orientals. Just 1 tin available for $28 – SOLD


TA3 – Some of you may remember that back in 2012, the Chicago Pipe Show held a John Cotton’s 1 & 2 Showdown to see which blender could come up with a tobacco that best represented the famous Cotton’s Blend. It was produced originally in 2012 by the Scandinavian Tobacco Group, which named the blend “LEO.” Lane Limited later gave it a go but gave up when the reviews did not come back good. Fortunately, these are the originals from 2012. As noted on www.tobaccoreviews.com – “Winner of the People’s Choice Award at the 2012 John Cotton #1 and #2 Medium Throwdown. An initial burst of Latakia gives way to the sweetness of Virginias. Cyprian Oriental adds a subtle hint of spice.” I have 3 of these now almost 5-year old and no longer made tins available for $15 per tin – SOLD OUT


TP3 – McClelland’s now out of production Ashton Revival Series blend, Celebrated Sovereign in a 50g tin that is factory dated to 2011. A classical English mixture made with Syrian Latakia, Turkish Djubec, matured jet-black Cavendish, Bright Carolina and Red Virginia. Pressed and matured in Scottish-style cakes before spinning into ribbon form, this is a true connoisseur’s tobacco for those who are seeking that elusive, ultimate Syrian Latakia flavor.” I have just 1 tin available for $18 – SOLD


VV3 – The original PCCA Manhattan in a 50g tin that is dated all the way back to 1997, giving the contents a marvelous almost 20-years of aging. This was an interesting and very tasty combination of straight Red Virginia and smoky Cyprian Latakia. With all the aging on both types of leaf, especially the quality Red Virginia used in these old PCCA blends, I expect the flavor combination to be quite enjoyable. I have 1 tin available for $20 – SOLD


VS3 – This one does not come up very often, a 100g tin of Anthony Cranswick’s Grey Castle that is dated back to 2002. No longer produced and appreciated. It was made by Charles Fairmorn and contains a healthy dose of Syrian Latakia. A pungent oriental blend featuring Virginia (both bright and fire cured), Orientals, and the Syrian leaf. This blend is a heavy English and not for the faint of heart. It is an old style tobacco and quite dry. It will test your speedometer and force one to rev up their puffing cadence due to the wonderful flavor. This one is meant to be smoked slowly though, to pick up the leathery taste of the Syrian without antagonizing the deeply rich Virginia leaf that should also be savored. This 100g tin sells for $25 – SOLD


VS3 – This is the original Savinelli English Mixture from the mid 1990’s when they were using the beautiful pictorial tin art. I’m not sure this one is still in production but the more recent tins just had the Savinelli name on the top label. It displays a mild “English” taste with the Burley giving the blend some oomph. The Virginia base is noticeable, yet mild. It burns quickly and for the most part, is very cool. One could do far worse (and, I have), than smoking this weed. Just 1 tin available for $18


ST3 – Davidoff Scottish Mixture in a 50g tin dated to 2009. As described on www.tobaccoreviews.com – “Scottish Mixture’s smooth, flavorful and mild middle-cut blend is enduringly popular. The fresh and delicately flowery aroma comes from select grades of Virginia, Burley, Kentucky and a small portion of Oriental tobaccos – refined with a dash of the finest Scotch whisky.” Just 1 tin available for $16


VV3 – Here’s a blend for you history buffs – Murray’s Mellow Smoking Mixture was history’s first tinned pipe tobacco back in 1862. These 50g tins are a little newer than that though, as they are dated to 2008 and although the outer tin labels say Made in Northern Ireland by Murray Sons & Company, they were made by Orlik for the Scandinavian Tobacco Group. I’ve not smoked this version but did enjoy the Murray’s made original. I think those who enjoy Latakia/Virginia in old world style with a natural enhancer that sweetens up the overall presentation. I have just 1 of these 9 year old tins available for $15 – SOLD


VS3 – Back in 2006, Watch City Cigar unveiled their Old Black Magic pipe tobacco with a first run of a limited amount of 2 oz tins that they hand numbered and dated (as noted in the photos). As detailed on www.tobaccoreviews.com – “The Distinct Caramel flavors of unsweetened Black Cavendish combine with the natural sweetness of Perique. Spotted lightly with Bright Virginia and pressed into Crumble Cake. A Rich, Dark, naturally aromatic tobacco.” This blend is still going strong and with almost 11-years of aging, the flavor in these tins should be magic indeed! I have just 1 tin still available for $15 – SOLD


TP3 – This is the Seattle Pipe Club’s Joe Lankford blockbuster Seattle Evening in a 50g tin that is factory dated to 2015. As described on www.tobaccoreviews.com – “A beguiling blend of Latakia, Turkish Orientals and Red Virginias. Seattle Evening ~ sunset casts long shadows over the ferry boats of Puget Sound.

VV3 – This is a 2 oz tin of the Seattle Pipe Club’s Deception Pass. No date stamp but it is one of the newer tins and since it was not released until 2015, it can’t be very old. In addition to being one heck of a nice guy, Joe Lankford is also one heck of a blender. I don’t think I ever received a tobacco he created that I didn’t like at least a little bit. Deception Pass greatly reminds me of the old Presbyterian Mixture if you tossed in a little Perique. And the layers of depth in the Virginia in this one, combined with the body building power of the unflavored Cavendish, all combined to create a smooth, creamy and delicious smoke. Just 1 tin still available for $12


SA3- Rattray’s MacBeth 100g tin that indicates it is “for Gentlemen Only.” Hogwash, I say, and if any of my lady customers want this one to smoke I will sure sell it to them. My greed for money has no gender boundaries! This is a Virginia and Burley mixture with a light fruity topping that burns away as one smokes. I have just 1 tin available for $12


ST3 – Factory date coded to 2012, I have just received a large lot of these almost 5-year old 50g tins of Orlik era Dunhill Early Morning Pipe in perfect, vacuum sealed condition. As described by www.tobaccoreviews.com – “Sweet Oriental carefully blended with Bright and Red Virginias, pressed and lightly stoved. Great as the `first pipe` arousing the palate for the further pleasures of the day. I have 7 tins still available for $15 per tin


ST3 – This is F&K Cigar Company’s uniquely named blend, Bat with a Hat in a 1-1/2 ounce tin that is dated to 2015. Described on the side panel of the tin as a sweet Burley, Virginia and Green River blend that “tastes like heaven and is crazy as hell.” Just 1 tin available for $12


TA3 – This is Vauen’s Black Pepper in a 50g tin dated to 2014. According to the www.tobaccoreviews.com website – “The double-fermented Black Cavendish based on Virginia and Burley tobaccos delivers a uniquely smooth smoking experience with a distinct aroma of black pepper.” So, don’t smell the freshly opened tin or you might sneeze. Just 1 tin available for $12


TA3 – This is Mac Baren’s Halberg in a factory sealed box that has a 3-1/2 ounce aluminum tin within. I would have taken a photo of the tin but the outer box is also factory sealed and I did not want to mess it up. Year 2013 production. As noted on www.tobaccoreviews.com – “From three different continents Mac Baren has gathered the best bright Virginias and ripe Burleys to press into cakes, before then cutting them and hand-blending the results with exclusive ribbon cut and slow-burning cross-cut Virginias. Finally, it’s all carefully topped with a complex aromatic of berries and exotic fruits, to produce a fine balance with the natural tobacco flavors.” I have just 1 tin available for $16

VV3 – The new John Cotton’s #1 and this is a 5-pack of 50g tins that are first year 2016 run. Blended by Russ Ouellette. John Cotton’s No. 1 is a light and refreshing English blend made of matured and bright Virginias, select, small-leaf Orientals and latakia. It’s ideal in the morning or as an all-day type of blend. The subtle interplay of the Orientals and latakia are supported by the mellow sweetness of the Virginias. The blend has been reconstructed through research and sampling of vintage tins, which triggered blender Russ Ouellette’s memories of having smoked the blend in the seventies. This 5-pack sells for $45


JS3 – This is a 50g tin of the Lane resurrected Crown Achievement. This is a powerful Latakia blend. The leaf is of exceptional quality and provides huge volumes of smoke. The Virginia and exotic Orientals add a depth to the blend no often found in tobaccos of this style. The Perique plays cat and mouse with the palate the entire time and that was a good thing. No date stamp on this tin but made within the past couple of years. It sells for $12
