bargain-tinsIf you want great tobacco at a sizzlin’ savings, you’ve come to the right place!


EB3 – Ashton’s Consummate Gentleman 50g tin that is recent production but no date stamp. This is indeed a medium bodied mixture with deep notes filtering in from time to time thanks to the sparse hits of Latakia. The Burley gives this one a somewhat unusual taste sensation for an “English type” offering and the Virginia is light, smooth and sweet. Just 1 tin available for $12


MP3 – Wessex Virginia Flake 50g tins with no date stamps but the owner indicates they are at least 3-years old. Wessex tends to offer strong flakes and Brown Virginia Flake is no exception. Deep in flavor and higher in nicotine content than many Virginia offerings. This is a naturally semi-sweet Virginia with some punch. Does not burn particularly slow for a flake, and a little restraint keeps the tongue from being nipped. Great bottom to this one. I have 2 tins available for $12 per tin


JS3 – First year 2015 Mac Baren production Capstan Blue Medium Navy Flake in 50g tins. Specially processed Virginia Leaf that provides a sweet yet strong flavor.  This one has a very nice aroma while smoldering in the pipe! I have 5 tins available for the bargain price of $12 per tin


JS3 – First year 2015 Mac Baren production Capstan Yellow Mild Navy Flake factory sealed 5-pack of 50g tins. Specially processed Virginia Leaf that provides a sweet yet medium flavor.  This one has a very nice aroma while smoldering in the pipe! This 5-pack is available for the bargain price of $55


JS3 – These are 50g tins of the STG re-make of Escudo from when  STG took over the blending a few years ago from A&C Petersen and are factory date coded to 2013, so, have a solid 3-plus years of age to them. Spun Virginia/Perique discs and the reviews have been very favorable. I have 2 tins still available for $10 per tin – SOLD OUT


DM3 – Orlik production Dunhill Early Morning Pipe 50g tins that are not dated. 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 2 tins available for $10 per tin


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 $65


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


RB2 – This is Jess Chonowitsch’s T-13 in a 50g tin that is dated all the way back to 2003, and that may be the first year of production for this one. If not, that sure is close. As described by www.tobaccoreviews.com – “An extra mild blend of tobaccos from Kentucky, Virginia and Maryland, plus a special Danish Cavendish which is lightly topped with a sweet dressing.” I have just 1 tin available for $12


RB2 – This is Jess Chonowitsch’s T-15 in 50g tins that are dated all the way back to 2003, and that may be the first year of production for this one. If not, I know that I’m close. I really liked the combined elements of this light, but savory blend. You can taste just about everything in the blend, but if you are a latakia lover, this may be a bit thin for your blood. The Burley and Orientals are the stars of this one with support mostly from the Virginia elements and then the Latakia back drop. If you are an aromatic fan, this won’t excite you either. If, like me, you have a palate that accepts a variety of flavors (as long as tobacco is one of them), then I think you’ll like ole Jess’s T 15. I have 4 tins available for $12 per tin

MP2 – Rattray’s no longer produced High Society in a 100g tin that is factory dated coded to the year 2000. I think a very slow puffing cadence will bring out the Vanilla flavor lightly produced by this blend. It burns slowly for an aromatic (probably due to the cut and fine leaf quality), and the natural tobacco flavor of the Burley and Virginia will come through.It sure has a wonderful room bouquet, too! Just 1 tin available for $18


VS3 – First year 2005 production 50g tins of Blakeney’s Best Latakia Flake. So, 12-years of age on the leaf within. These tins arrived with dents on the sides, but none are at all compromising. Still, a price reduction is in order. As described on www.tobaccoreviews.com – “A distinctive full English mixture in the grand tradition, rich with smoky Cyprian Latakia, fragrant with exotic Xanthi Yaka. Toasted for smoothness, then pressed in cakes to age and marry the flavors. Result: Exceptionally smooth, cool-smoking, full-flavored little Levantine flakes ready to rub out.” I have 1 of these well aged tins still available for $12


BJ3 – C&D’s Black Satin 2oz tin that is factory dated back to 2006, giving this one 11-years of aging. This one reminded me of many all Black Cavendish blends sauced with Vanilla (several Lane blends come to mind), but this one had a little better quality in the leaf. Just 1 tin available for $12


TA3 – Here’s another fabulous Limited Edition 100g Collector’s tin from Kohlhase & Kopp of Germany. It is called Year 2015 Liberté Égalité Fraternité (translation: Freedom & Equality for all). Made for sale only in France, the tin art is magnificent and is actually three dimensional.  There is no description of the factory bagged leaf within, but when I opened the tin top I detected a heavenly aromatic smell and it looks to me like the tobacco is a combination of Burley, Virginia and Black Cavendish. Just 1 tin available for $24


BJ3 – From back to 1997, this is Quintessence No. 1 in a 50g tin and Russell Import (Russell went out of business in 2002). As noted on the top label, “A super mild aromatic Black Cavendish bulk cured for several weeks. The mild and sweet vanilla aroma combined with outstanding tobacco grades gives you an unusual smoking experience.” This 20-year old tin sells for $18
