Pipe Tobacco Tins For Sale: Page 1

 

ST1 – Bell’s Three Nuns 100g “Tall Boy” tin with the Russell Import sticker on the bottom. Although there is no date stamp, these “Tall Boy” style tins were made only between 1999 and 2002, so, we know this one was made between those years. And, best of all, this tin has the “Imperial Tobacco” stamped on the tin bottom, meaning this is the Virginia/Perique formula before BAT taking over and moving production to Orlik where Kentucky was substituted for the Perique. This “The Real Deal” 100g tin sells for $225 – SOLD

This is a still perfectly sealed 2 oz tin with no rust or dents. Just pure 100% pre 1963 Syrian Latakia tobacco that Jones felt was so smooth and refined that it could be smoked without any additions.

ST1 – This is GBD Golden Aromatic in a 50g still perfectly vacuum sealed tin from the 1960’s. Made for GBD by Ogden’s of Liverpool, don’t let the name fool you as the “aromatic” name used in England was to indicate a pleasant room aroma. This one contains 100% pure well aged golden leaf Virginias that I am sure are jet black by now due to the fermentation and overall aging process. And of course, Ogden’s was one of the world’s top producers of fine Virginia leaf. I suspect the buyer will see his toes curl after puffing on the contents of this one. Just 1 tin available for $75 – SOLD

Mostly a Virginia/Burley mixture, the top coating lends itself in a way that brings out the strength of the blend. It will be difficult to smoke this all day due to its strength, but for those who do like a Joe Louis left hook when they puff on their pipes, will certainly enjoy being knocked out by this legendary blend.

This blend has quite a bit of Perique and that Louisiana Hot Sauce makes its presence known from the moment you set fire to the leaf. This is also a very shaggy cut, and careful packing is needed. The cut was not a problem for me as I use a blender on just about all of my tobaccos for an even pack and burn. Similar to Dunbar, but stronger in the Perique department and six varieties of Virginias present what I call less Virginia depth but more variety as you work your way down the bowl. I have 2 tin available for $30 per tin – SOLD OUT

Pease is the creator of these long standing limited edition blends that were all created with very special touches that make them so smokable and the tin art certainly adds to the collectibility!

ST1 – This is the original John Sinclair House of Craven in London, England’s famous Craven Mixture, Unfortunately, this sensational blend was discontinued in the 1990’s. This particular tin is hand date stamped to 1998, but I believe the the tin is probably older than that.  It does bear the tobacco warning, so, it can’t be any older than 1989.  This Original Craven Mixture was a deeply flavorful English blend with sensational Virginia leaf, smoky, sweet and fragrant Latakia, and fine small leaf Orientals that added just enough spice to compliment the overall presentation. As some of you may know, this was a favorite of the famous “My Lady Nicotine” author, J.M. Barrie. I have just 1 of these rare tins still available for $85


BT1 – This is the long gone Dobie’s Four Square London Mixture in a 50g still perfectly factory vacuum tins that is the ORIGINAL “Made in Great Britain” production and not the later Danish make.

RM1 – This is the long gone Dobie’s Four Square Ready Rubbed Flake in a 50g still perfectly factory vacuum tins that is the ORIGINAL “Made in Great Britain” production and not the later Danish make. This one has the older, more flat tin and that dates it from the 1970’s or early 1980’s. Dobie’s Red, (as I usually call Ready Rubbed Flake), was a generously mild flake of mostly Virginias with an Oriental element that added a touch of spice and sweetness. Rare to find leaf of this quality anymore, and with all the aging the impression is bound to be… well, impressive! I have 2 tins still available for $125 per tin


TM1 – The Legendary Friedman & Pease all-time favorite and hardest to find, these are perfectly conditioned two ounce tins of Winter’s Tale from 1999. Greg Pease put this one together with a noticeable dose of Virginia, Latakia and Perique all rolled into one dilly whopper of a smoke! The flavor has a lot of depth and hangs onto the palate with meat hooks! Latakia/Perique is always a dangerous combination for blenders as it’ll foul the taste buds if not done properly. The combination here (with a touch of sweet and now deeply aged Virginia), is delightful. One can taste all of the components with wave after wave of smokey Latakia, Perique and Virginia leaf filling the palate at once and throughout the smoke. I have just 1 tin available for $95


LG1 – Captain Earle’s Private Stock in a 100g tin – Now this is an English style blend with some strength!

Solani’s top selling English blend and for good reason! I have 1 of these 13-year old Syrian Latakia laden tins still available for $35 – SOLD


VS1 – This is Solani Blend No. 369, and one that I really enjoy due to the complexity of the smoke. As detailed on www.tobaccoreviews.com – “Bright and red Virginias, some burley and mild black cavendish in addition to perique makes this a mild blend with flavor.” This tin is not dated but came with the Solani Blend No. 763 above, so, I think it must be in the ballpark  of at least a decade old and sells for $22 – SOLD

SA1 – Gawith’s Golden Flow 50g tins that are dated to 2011 and even have commercial grade vacuum sealed plastic covers. Golden Glow is one of those Virginia’s that offers plenty of flavor, yet, is mild. Not even close to FVF in the strength department, but every bit as flavorful in a lighter sort of way.

I have 10 tins available for $24 per tin
