Pipe Tobacco Tins For Sale: Page -1

MB1 – Recent production Germain Balkan Sobranie in 50g tins with the Arango Import stickers on the bottom. You know the story; Germain obtained from the heirs to the House of Sobranie the rights and the original recipe to reproduce this classic. And, Germain hit a home run with the reproduction. I absolutely love this tobacco and like many of you, am always running out. It is too good to just let sit anywhere but in your pipe! I have 5 tins available for $42 per tin – SOLD OUT


GH1 – PCCA’s all-time most heralded Virginia, Millennium 2000. Tinned up in 1995 for their unveiling of this special tobacco in 2000, and that is why you will see a year 1995 date stamp on the bottom of this 100g tin. Many old timers (and unfortunately, I guess I am one), say that Millennium was one of the finest and naturally ripe and sweet Virginia tobaccos ever produced. Similar to McClelland’s 5100 in the flavor department but with more depth & strength, and similar to McCranie’s original ’83 crop Red Ribbon, but again, with a little more strength. Indeed, a fine and classic Virginia that now bears 22-years of aging! Just 1 tin available for $150 – SOLD


GH1 – PCCA’s 50g tins of New Millennium 2000. This is also one heck of a Virginia Flake that was tinned up in 2000 and the same blend as above but processed later. Sweet, cool and tremendous depth to the flavor. Quality Virginias stir my innards as I love the morfing of the weed as the bowl is consumed. Spicy and nose tingling at first light, New Mo;;rmmoi,. settles down into what I can only describe as a rich smoke bursting with a flavor varietal not often tasted. I have just 2 tins available for $45 per tin – SOLD OUT


GH1 – It doesn’t get any better than this for fans of yesteryear’s smoky sweet Syrian Latakia! Factory dated back to 1993, this is one of those rare and one time run 50g tins of Levin Pipes International’s Syrian Reserve. Containing the finest Syrian leaf of the time period, combined with luscious and spicy Orientals and deeply matured Virginia, this one rang pipe smokers chimes. I have just 1 tin available for $75 – SOLD


GH1 – Another Levin Pipes International Limited Edition, one time run sensation, this is Gorgorath in a 50g tin that is undated but from the very early 1990’s. And boy, is the bottom of this tin ever puffy (a good thing!). Barry Levin was able to acquire a batch of spun cut Virginia that was ripe, deep as the ocean and palate pleasing to the max. This is just the 2nd tin that I’ve seen in the almost 12-years of running this site. Just 1 tin available for $65 – SOLD


DQ1 – Check this out; the original import late year 1998 production of Germain’s Esoterica Penzance! This eight ounce sealed plastic tray also has an uncompromised factory commercial grade sealed outer bag. However, after all this time the krumble kake within is very dry and will need rehydration. This true hall of fame tobacco is described this way on www.tobaccoreviews.com – “A wonderful complex secret recipe of the finest Virginia, choice Turkish and Orientals and Cyprian Latakia, all hand blended together, hard pressed and broad cut into thick flakes. Long matured and easily crumbled to facilitate pipe filling.” This still factory sealed but dry 8 oz tray sells for $100 – SOLD

A high quality blend with a savory taste and a fine bouquet. An outstanding tobacco with a rich depth of flavor.” I have 2 tins available for $32 per tin – SOLD OUT


DM1 – Esoterica’s Dorchester 8 oz bag with no date but recent production. 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. Another home run by Germain, for sure. I have 1 bag available for $85 – SOLD

David Windsor, who owned and ran the Bufflehead Shop in Kansas from 1997 through 2005, would often tin up other makers bulk blend for his customers upon request. As for G&G Dark Flake, here’s the descriptive by www.tobaccoreviews.com – “A very strong, but very cool smoke is the result of combining in equal proportions only Malawi Dark Fired Leaf and Indian dark air-cured leaf. No additional flavors. You can smell in this tobacco the Smokey flavor of the dark fired leaf derived from its curing process of being hung above smoky fires, and the sweeter, yet still strong ‘cigar type’ flavor of the dark-air-cured Indian leaf. I have just 1 tin available for $175


VS1 – Dunhill’s London Store hand Bended 50g tin of Aperitif from 1998. As detailed on www.tobaccoreviews.com – “A complex blend of Virginias, Cavendish, Latakia and Oriental Leaf.

Who am I to disagree? Just 1 tin available for $75 – SOLD


ST1 – The extremely hard to find PCCA Noel 1994 in a 100g tin that is actually factory date stamped to 1993 (the year of tinning and then released in 2004). This tin is in perfect, sealed condition with no issues. Noel 1994 was a PCCA original that simply exploded with flavor and a rich and full body. A very naturally sweet Virginia with sugar crystals that should now be displayed over the dark leaf (much darker than when originally tinned). Just one of those once in a lifetime classic Virginia’s that was a very limited production blend due to only a small amount of the quality Virginia required being available. This tin sells for $85 – SOLD


VS1 – It sure is a “Quest” to find this one – an original PCCA 100g tin of Quest that is factory dated all the way back to 1993, giving the contents a leaf ripening 24-years of aging. Turkish leaf at its best as the Orientals are a pronounced yet gently spicy component that enhances the incomparable flavor of the smoky Latakia and Matured Orange Virginias. Just 1 tin available for $65 – SOLD


GH1 – The original PCCA Beacon in a 50g tin that is factory date stamped all the way back to 1997, giving the famous VaPer contents within a solid 20-years of aging! This is an exceptional VaPer that is heavy on the Virginia and light on the Perique. In fact, one of the most delicate Virginia/Perique blends I have tasted in quite some time. It is a delightful blend (as evidenced by all the folks giving this one 4-stars), with a full measure of taste and decent strength. I can see where experienced pipe smokers would gravitate to this leaf. Not only is the flavor and strength very noticeable, the flake cut gives this one staying power. Beacon has it all! Just 1 tin available for $40 – SOLD


GH1 – The highly acclaimed PCCA limited edition Boston 1776 50g tin that was produced only in 1993, giving the contents within a wonderful 24-years of aging! Strictly Virginia broken flake with exotic spicy leaves of several varieties from the Orient. Just 1 tin available for $35 – SOLD

GH1 – The original PCCA Jazz in a 50g tin that is factory dated all the way back to 1995, giving the contents a solid 22-years of aging. An unusually cool burning Virginia broken flake tobacco that fills the palate in a soft and gentle way. I have just 1 tin available for $35 – SOLD


GH1 – The original PCCA Aurora in a 50g tin that is factory dated back to 1996. I smoked a tin of this one a couple of years ago (original PCCA version), and was super pleased with the depth of flavor this fine blend provided. The Virginia leaf had darkened considerably and there were sugar crystals all over the place. I smoked slowly and was rewarded by a host of tremendous flavor variations as I worked my way down the bowl. Yummy stuff! Just 1 tin available for $35 – SOLD


VS1 – The original PCCA Highlander 50g tin that is factory dated to 1996. As noted on the side of the tin – “A fine Scottish Cake tobacco of medium body in broken flakes. Virginia tobaccos lightly seasoned with Xanthi for a richer flavor.” I’ve not seen this one much but have heard good things about it. Just 1 tin available for $35 – SOLD


VS1 – The original PCCA Avatar 50g tin that is factory dated to 1994. This is another one I sure don’t see very often and it is described this way on the side of the tin – “This is Matured Virginia at its finest, naturally sweet, mellow from extended aging, clean-smoking pleasure to experience.” I have just 1 tin available for $35 – SOLD


DQ1 – McCranie’s original last year (1999) of tinning that famous ’83 crop of Red Ribbon! This special crop Red Ribbon in a 50g tin is factory dated to show that the leaf was processed and tinned up in 1999. This one has a little less nicotine content and is not quite as sweet as the later editions, but certainly has that bolder, full flavor that this vintage was famous for. And, of course, the leaf has a high sugar content and was made to ripen and mellow further as it ages in the tins. I suspect the contents within this 18-year old tin is very dark and loaded up with sugar crystals by now. I have 1 tin available for $60 – SOLD


EW1 – Direct from the famous old Percy Martin Farms in St. James Parish, LA., these are late 1990’s one ounce jars of that fabulous Perique that was the world’s one and only location for that fine condimental leaf. I actually smoked some of this stuff straight (just for fun), a few years ago and was shocked at how smooth and deep the presentation was. I had heard war stories about smoking Perique straight, but my eyes didn’t even cross. I don’t want to ever smoke it straight again, but it sure did perk up some of my favorite straight Virginia tobaccos. I have 6 of these “Jewel’s of St. James Parish 1 oz jars still available for $35 per jar – SOLD OUT


EW1 – Caledonian’s long gone and highly acclaimed Virginia Flake 50g tin that is dated all the way back to 2001. Made by A&C Petersen and described this way by www.tobaccoreviews.com – “A staple Virginia flake tobacco that put Caledonian on the map of fine tobaccos. If you like Virginia Flakes you simply must give this one a try.” This 16-year old still in perfect condition tin is available for $65 – SOLD


VS1 – This is the long out of production and original James Fox & Company of London “Tall Boy” 100g tin of Old Year Mixture from the 1980’s.

RM1 – Murray’s Erinmore Mixture in a large, 200g tin from the 1970’s. As described by www.tobaccoreviews.com – “The recipe for Erinmore Mixture is a closely guarded secret which is revealed to only two people in each generation. It is known, however, that the tobaccos are selected from the premier tobacco growing regions of the world, naturally sweetened bright Virginia is hand blended with cool-smoking black cavendish to produce the unique flavor and distinctive aroma of Erinmore. More than that we cannot reveal. A mellow aromatic tobacco with a cool taste and a slow-burning easy-smoking style.” Just 1 tin available for $110 – SOLD


RM1 – This is a 50g tin of McConnell’s no longer made Pure Syrian Latakia that is hand dated to 2006, so, a good 11-years of aging on this one. This has got to be the sleeper tobacco of the century for those who enjoy Syrian leaf. I smoked a couple of bowls of it straight a few years ago and all that I can say is that the flavor and taste was HUGE. It was a little overwhelming, in fact. So, I switched to using it in lighter English blends that I wanted to put some muscle into. Just marvelous stuff and no the Syrian has been replaced with Cyprian. I have 1 tin of this old original Syrian leaf available for $45 – SOLD


TP1 – The long gone Lewis Extra Coarse Cut was only made by the Will factory in England in the 1980s. A hearty offering of rich Latakia, spiced with the exceptional Orientals available back then and capped off with stoved Virginia. The overall impression was a wonderfully middle of the road in strength and full on flavor blend that kept the smoker very happy. This rare tin sells for $48


TP1 – This is the long gone Barclay-Rex of New York tinned version of their heralded Virginia Flake. Still being produced but only in bulk form. Made in England and this particular tin came from the famous Loring collection back in 2001, so, I suspect this tin is actually 1990’s production. A classy and now supper ripe broken flake that will not disappoint. Just 1 tin available for $42


VS1 – This is the original 500 tin release of Mac Baren’s HH Vintage Syrian that was launched at the Chicago Pipe Show that year. No longer produced, of course, since Syrian tobacco is no longer being grown. As detailed on www.tobaccoreviews.com – “The base of the blend, a little under half of the volume, is a smooth and yet powerful Latakia from Syria. This tobacco gives the blend the overall smoky taste, a powerful taste and yet without any tongue bite. To add a spicy note to the blend, Turkish Oriental has been added. A mix of different Virginia tobaccos from 3 continents adds a sweet natural taste. To complete the taste with depth and body, we added a little Dark Fired Kentucky from the US. This original 11-year old tin sells for $45 – SOLD


VS1 – From G.L. Pease, the original 2 oz tin of Tribute that is date stamped to September 19, 2001. Tribute is a special blend of red, lemon and stoved red Virginias, Perique and toasted Cavendish tobaccos. The tribute on the back of the tin was written by Ernest A. Carabillo III. All profits from the sale of this tobacco were donated to the “Families of Freedom Scholarship Fund”. Produced in September, 2001, and again, this is one of those original tins and it is in perfect condition. I have just 1 tin available for $48 – SOLD


VS1 – Brebbia Syrian Latakia Flake No. 9 in a 50g tin that has the old “Manufactured in the E.C.” moniker, meaning that while not dated, this tin can be no newer than 2003. I believe I enjoy Syrian Latakia more than the Cyprian variety due to the more naturally sweetness and spice of Syrian. That is why I really like Brebbia Latakia Flake. This one is a thick cut flake and takes FOREVER to finish a bowl due to the slow burn. The Virginia flavor is there, but the slow sipping I tried with this one really caused the Syrian leaf to come to the forefront. I think this is a “Sleeper” blend as it is as fine as any English style blend that I have ever smoked. I have just this 1 at least 14-year old tin available for $45


VS1 – Balkan by Brebbia also contains a lot of Syrian Latakia as that no longer made leave comprises 40% of the mixture. This 50g tin also has has the old “Manufactured in the E.C.” moniker, meaning that while not dated, this tin can be no newer than 2003 production. As detailed on www.tobaccoreviews.com – “A classic blend containing Orientals, smoked Kentucky, Louisiana perique and 40% Syrian latakia. New Tin Description: Full bodied blend of finest Oriental leaves, dark fired Kentucky, Louisiana perique, and 40% of Syrian latakia.” I have just this 1 at least 14-year old tin available for $45


VS1 – Dan Tobacco’s Hamburger Veermaster 50g tin that is post CAO import and dated to 2008.

VS1 – Dan Tobacco’s Treasures of Ireland Limerick Virginia Flake 50g tin with the old CAO import sticker on the bottom, meaning this tin can’t be any newer than 2005 production, so, a minimum of 12-years of aging. As described on www.tobaccoreviews.com – “A rich Virginia tobacco with 5% Perique added to keep the mixture cool on the palate. A dark, smooth, wonderful flake tobacco.” This tin sells for $25 – SOLD


VS1 – Dan Tobacco’s Treasure’s of Ireland Shannon 50g tin that has the old import sticker on the bottom and is dated all the way back to the year 2000, so, quite a bit of age on this one. As noted on www.tobaccoreviews.com – “Virginia, burley and black cavendish mixed and topped with a fruity casing as in the Shannon tobacco. The difference is that to obtain these flakes the tobacco has been pressed once more. The result is a fine flake that crumbles easily. Easy to fill and to light. Burns slow and cool and gives a gently creamy smoke.” This 17-year old tin sells for $28 – SOLD


VS1 – Dan Tobacco’s Tordenskjold Virginia Slices 50g tin that has the old CAO import sticker on the tin bottom and is dated all the way back to the year 2000, so, a good deal of age to ripen the quality Virginia slices within. As described on www.tobaccoreviews.com – “A full-bodied, golden flake from the best Virginia grades and Louisiana Perique. This tobacco gives you a very smooth smoking pleasure with the naturally-smooth taste, which the friends of an excellent Flakes appreciate it so much.” I have just 1 tin available for $32 – SOLD


VS1 – Here’s a neat find; the old, smaller rectangle 50g tins of the true Fribourg & Treyer Cut Blended Plug. One tin is dated to 1999 and the others are dated to 2000. This one is rather light in the nicotine department and softer on the palate than most Red Virginia flake tobacco. It is just a bit on the sweet side with some natural added flavoring that the British are famous for. I have 3 of these nearly 17-year old tins available for $32 per tin – SOLD OUT


James J. Fox original made in Dublin or London 50g tins of The Squire’s Mixture from the early 1990’s and sporting old style labels. No rust or dents but both tins do have some light corrosion showing on the top lids. As described on www.tobaccoreviews.com – “For over a century blenders have added the aroma and flavour of Turkish and latakia tobaccos to Virginian and Cavendish leaf, giving this blend it’s distinction.” I have 2 tins available for $32 per tin

As detailed on www.tobaccoreviews.com – “Flue-curing captures the natural sweetness of fine Virginia tobaccos. Partially rubbed-out Flake that is delicate in aroma.” Just 1 tin available for $35 – SOLD 


GC1 – Pease long-standing favorite Barbary Coast in 2 oz tins that are factory dated to 2007, meaning we have almost 10-year old tins here. As noted by www.tobaccoreviews.com – “The finest cube-cut Burley, chosen for its deep, nutty flavors, forms a robust foundation for this sophisticated blend. Rich, red Virginia tobaccos are added for their subtle sweetness and complexity, while the unique spice of Perique provides added dimension. A delicate kiss of Brandy polishes the blend to a perfect finish. Barbary Coast is delightfully satisfying, with hints of black walnut, dark chocolate, and dried fruits.” I have 3 tins available for $18 per tin


VS1 – Pease Lombard in 2oz tins that are factory dated to 2005, so, 12-year old Pease tins here! As detailed on www.tobaccoreviews.com – “Named for the famed winding, twisting street in San Francisco, Lombard starts with a base of red and bright Virginias. It is then enhanced with American ‘condimental’ leaf, including an angel’s share of Perique. The twist in this Lombard? A delicate breath of Cyprus Latakia is added for a whisper of smokiness and a slightly deeper flavor. A gentle introduction to Latakia for the Virginia smoker, or just a delightful change of pace.” I have 2 of these ripe tins available for $20 per tin


VS1 – Pease Lombard in a 2 oz tin that is factory dated to 2008, so, almost a full 9-years of age on this tin. As noted on www.tobaccoreviews.com – “Named for the famed winding, twisting street in San Francisco, Lombard starts with a base of red and bright Virginias. It is then enhanced with American ‘condimental’ leaf, including an angel’s share of Perique. The twist in this Lombard? A delicate breath of Cyprus Latakia is added for a whisper of smokiness and a slightly deeper flavor. A gentle introduction to Latakia for the Virginia smoker, or just a delightful change of pace.” I have 1 tin available for $18


TA1 – A nice find here – the long out of production Port Williams Brown Label, which was a combination of five different Virginia grades and a healthy dose of St. James Parish Perique. Spoken highly of many times in back issues of the old Pipe Smoker’s Ephemeris as this K&K classic had worldwide acclaim. These 100g tins are from 2005, meaning the quality leaf within has no doubt fermented to perfection. I have 1 tin still available for $28 – SOLD


SA1 – Esoterica’s Scarborough in an 8 oz bag that is dated to 2016. I have always found Scarborough to be beguiling due to the combination of Bright and Dark Virginia that has been fermented using that secret and very special Germain process that makes their Esoterica blends so delicious. The taste is refined and staid, does not produce a lot of variance, but with each puff, the progression down the bowl is captivating with its flavor, bit of sweetness and more strength than the average bear. I have just 1 bag available for $85


SA1 – I have just managed to get my greedy fingers on a large amount of one of Sam Gawith’s most popular ever blends, Best Brown flake in 50g tins that are all dated back to 2011, meaning the marvelous leaf within has been fermenting and ripening beautifully for the last 6-years. I love strong Flue-cured Zimbabwe leaf that dominates several favorite blends of mine, but not is so deliciously deep, strong, dark and yet sweet as this beautiful tobacco. And best of all, this rich dark brown flake turns near black with aging, loads up on the sugar crystals and ages better than Raquel Welch (well, almost). I have 9 of these nicely ripened tins available for $26 per tin


SA1 – Samuel Gawith’s currently most popular blend, Full Virginia Flake in 50g tins. Some are dated to 2011 and others to 2012 (I will sell oldest to newest as the orders come in). As many know, this one is made to age and ripens quickly with the mottled brown flakes turning almost black, smoothing out and loading up with sugar crystals to make for a heady presentation that is also as smooth as silk. I have 8  of these 5 and 6 year old tins available for $26 per tin


FT1 – Gawith’s St. James Flake in 50g tins from 2012. As detailed on www.tobaccoreviews.com – “Genuine Perique is added to an already delicious and flavoursome blend of fine bright Virginias to give St. James the light peppery characteristic enjoyed by so many pipe smokers.

Blending a variety of different styles of flue-cured tobaccos gives Skiff its characteristic yellow and brown features. Its real identity comes with the addition of Turkish and a beautiful black Cyprus Latakia giving the blend its full, round taste.” Just 1 tins available for $22


JS1 – Sam Gawith’s Atomic Bomb – This is 1792 flake in 50g tins that are dated to 2005, giving the contents 12-years to mellow. As described on www.tobaccoreviews.com – “1792 Flake is a full-strength, mellow tobacco comprising a blend of dark-fired Tanzanian leaf. It is Gawith’s best-selling premium grade flake. It starts as 7 lbs. of hand stripped leaf and goes through a steaming process prior to being pressed. The cake, having been prepared, is wrapped in a select leaf and packed by hand into a 12 inch square. This cake is pressed and left for a minimum of two hours. Then, the pressed cake is placed into a steam press where it is baked at full heat for two to three hours. The baked cake has then taken on 1792’s characteristic rich, dark color. It’s hardening occurs during cooling. Once the process of cutting the flake and adding a tonquin flavor is carried out, hand wrapping and packing finalizes 1792, making it ready for rubbing into your pipe.” I have 2 of this ripe tins available for $26 per tin – SOLD OUT

MP1 – Gawith’s Celtic Talisman that is not dated but the tobacco did not come out until 2008, so, it can’t be any older than that. Originally made by Gawith for the American market, although I understand that they now ship this one to sell in others countries. Bright Virginias, Burley and Black Cavendish with a dash of Cherry and Vanilla flavoring. The Virginia is typical Gawith deep Lakeland style and the Burley was somewhat toasty in presentation. The light Cherry/Vanilla infused Black Cavendish made the overall presentation fun and not at all aromatic in the “American” style. Just 1 tin available for $14


TA1- Samuel Gawith’s 100g tin of Limited Edition 2013. The contents description is showing in the photos and I have 1 tin still still available for $22 – SOLD


VV1 – McCranie’s popular Murdock’s Pipe in 50g tins that are dated all the way back to the year 2001 & 2004 giving the delicious contents a bunch of aging. All I can say about Murdock Pipe is that I receive a delightful smoke every time I load up. It has just enough Latakia, Virginia and Oriental leaf to make the blend soft and cool burning. No single element comes to the front. It is just a combination of downright tasty tobacco! I have 2 tins available for $20 per tin


JS1 – This is the year 1999 edition of the original Jay Jones blended Captain Earle’s Nightwatch Pressed in a 2 oz tin.

The beast has surely been tamed after 18-years of fermentation and this tin sells for $45

The beast has surely been tamed after 18-years of fermentation and this tin sells for $65


DT1 – From the late Jay Jones of Hermit Tobacco Works, this is a late 1990’s two ounce tin of Mystic Blend PRESSED. Mystic Blend PRESSED was originally very similar to its companion Honor Blend. This one has the same characteristics except that as a thick broken flake it burns more slowly. Deep and rich Latakia combined with sweet Red Virginia that is readily tasted. The Perique element plays pee-a-boo with the smoker throughout the smoke and is a nice touch. Just 1 tin available for $45


FT1 – Factory dated all the way back to 1996, this is a nearly 21-year old tin of PCCA’s pure 100% Cyprian Latakia with no other leaf included. Silky smooth, I am sure, with all the aging and would perfectly beef up just about any blend you choose to smoke. Just 1 tin available for $28
