* Pipe Tobacco Tins For Sale: Page-2

EB2 – Orlik’s famous Golden Sliced 100g tin that dates back to 2004 by the factory date code although someone wrote 2005 on the tin, which, I suspect, was the purchase date. So, this tin is closing in on 13-years of age which is plenty of time for the delicious golden leaf within to have fermented to the point where there it is darkened and ripened considerably. As described by www.tobaccoreviews.com – “A blend of golden, fully ripe Virginia leaves from the traditional districts of the United States and a smidgen of Perique. Natural sweetness and freshness with hints of citrus.” Just 1 tin available for $50 – SOLD


EB2 – Orlik Dark Kentucky in a 100g tin that is dated to 2005, which was the last year of production for about a 5-year period before Orlik resumed blending this very nice mostly Burley with some Virginia compilation. As described by www.tobaccoreviews.com – “Virginias with dark fired Kentucky tobacco. Tobacco selection: Blending fine Black Cavendish with the irresistible qualities of Kentucky Burley gives this flake a look, taste and feel uniquely its own. Tobacco cut: Flake slice cut tobacco. Flavor/Aroma: This is a non-aromatic, medium to full in strength.” I have just 1 ripe 12-year old tin available for $45 – SOLD


EB2 – The long-gone classic, Bjarne’s Flake De Luxe in 50g tins that are dated to 2005, the last year of production for this lamented delight. This Bjarne Virginia Flake does indeed have a secret ingredient that adds to the flavor — which otherwise — is very light. No bite and cool. Soft rather than loud, in fact, this is light with a capital L…but, it is smooth and tasty too. I have 3 tins available for $35 per tin


VV2 – The original McClelland’s Red Wax Anniversary in a 100g Ecru paper wrapped Red Wax sealed tin from 2002. An elegant matured Virginia ribbon-cut blend, naturally sweet with that clarity of flavor possessed by only the best Virginias. Seasoned lightly with fine, cool-smoking Cyprian Latakia. Just 1 tin available for $42 – SOLD


VV2 – The McClelland’s Brown Wax Anniversary in 100g Ecru paper wrapped Brown Wax sealed tins from 2010. Identical to the Red and Green wax tins but just a little freshers. An elegant matured Virginia ribbon-cut blend, naturally sweet with that clarity of flavor possessed by only the best Virginias. Seasoned lightly with fine, cool-smoking Cyprian Latakia. I have 3 tins available for $25 per tin


VV2 – McClelland’s #27 Matured Virginia 100g tins that are factory dated all the way back to 1998, giving the exceptional contents within a super almost 19-years of aging. I smoked a 20-plus year old tin of this one a few years ago and loved it. The tin top was actually puffed a bit and let out a gentle whooosh when the seal broke. The tobacco was was extremely dark and the smell told me the leaf was richly fermented. The leaf was mostly dry, but retained just enough dampness to make it perfect for smoking. It burned clean and cool right down to the bottom of the bowl leaving nothing but ash. Just past mid bowl on my second smoke, I hit an otherworldly zone that I’ll remember forever. The tin did not last long. I have 1 tin still available for $38 – SOLD


EB2 – McClelland’s #24 Matured Virginia 50g tin that is factory dated all the way back to 2002, giving the exceptional contents within a super almost 13-years of aging. More forgiving than Dark Star and even #27, this tobacco surely will win over even the most “dainty tongued” pipesters who shy away from Virginia blends due to the heat. It is also (nicotine wise) a headier brew than #27. McClelland’s #24 is, simply stated, regal in flavor and behavior. It rubs out and stays lit easily. Puff slowly in order to savor the varying waves of Virginia flavor. I have 1 tin available for $20 – SOLD


VV2 – McClelland’s Personal Reserve series blockbuster Blackwoods Flake in a 100g tin that is dated back to 2001. As described by www.tobaccoreviews.com – “The characteristic, natural sweetness of mellow, Red Virginias mingles inextricably with the richness and inherently spicy aroma of Black Stoved Virginias in this doubly aged red and black all-Virginia cake mixture. An artistic achievement in tobaccos for the pipe, this beautiful mottled flake is incomparable in smoothness, balance and refinement.” Just 1 tin available for $35 – SOLD


MP2 – McClelland’s Personal Reserve Series British Woods in a 100g tin that is factory dated all the way back to 1998. Slightly Oriental forward, but the Latakia and matured Virginia leaf is not far behind. A superior blend that has been a huge McClelland’s favorite for many decades. The way the leaf combines for such a rich presentation is due to a special process by the blender that marries all the components in their natural juices for many months before tinning. Just a remarkable blend. This almost 20-year old tin sells for $40 – SOLD


MP2 – McClelland’s Dominican Glory 100g tin that is factory dated all the way back to 1995, giving the contents a super 22-years of aging. And folks, there’s been a lot of fermentation going on inside this tin because both the top and bottom lids are very puffy (a good thing!) As described on www.tobaccoreviews.com – “The flavor of a fine, mild cigar in a satisfying tobacco for the pipe. This blend of premium aged Dominican cigar leaf is seasoned with Matured Virginia for balance and refinement and is presented in a wide ribbon form for cool smoking pleasure. For the best of both worlds, enjoy Dominican Glory in the pipe.” This ripe old classic tin sells for $40


VV2 – McClelland’s Virginia Woods 100g tin that is dated back to 2004, giving the contents a solid 13-years of aging. As described on www.tobaccoreviews.com – “Formulated for a smooth, rich flavor with an incomparable woodsy aroma. Blended from finest matured red cake, Stoved Black Virginia, wide-cut Bright Virginia and other premium tobaccos. Virginia Woods offers one of the ultimate experiences in fragrant Matured Virginia blend smoking.” Just 1 tin available for $32 – SOLD


EB2 – The original production McClelland’s Tudor Castle 50g tin that is factory dated back to 2008 (released in a limited supply of only 340 tins in 2007 and 2008, and then reintroduced in 2010). Yenidje! I love this stuff and don’t see it in too many blends. Sometimes the blenders overpower us with that condiment but the combination here with the base Virginia and Louisiana Perique produces an exceptional blend that is strong enough to be enjoyed by those who seek a nicotine hit yet mild and flavorful enough to be enjoyed by just about anyone. Just 1 tin available for $18 – SOLD


GF2 – From McClelland’s 221B Series, this is an old 50g tin of Black Shag that is factory dated to 2003, giving the dark and oily contents a solid 14-years of aging. If you want a nice, cool smoke with a mostly Virginia flavor interspersed with a smidgen of oriental leaf, then here you go. Black Shag is a very fine shag cut dark tobacco with just a hint of English flavor. If you are after a big taste, look elsewhere. This whets the whistle without drowning the taste buds. I smoke this on occasion and find it to be a delightful change of pace. Just 1 tin available for $18 – SOLD


VS2 – McClelland’s 100g tin of Oriental Mixture #1 that is factory dated all the way back to the millennial year 2000, giving the sweet and spicy components within a solid 16 plus-years of aging. One of McClelland’s oldest blends, Oriental #1 is soft on the palate with a whisper of Latakia and overtones of mild Orientals with a little Virginia leaf tossed in to provide backbone. Just 1 tin available for $25 – SOLD


RB2 – McClelland’s 50g tin of Oriental Mixture #6 that is factory dated back to 2002, so, the sweet and spicy components have a lot of age. The dominant leaf in this one is Virginia. It is very fragrant and middle of the road in strength in flavor. The Orientals really come to the forefront with this blend and the pot is sweetened by its presence. The Latakia is a background player, and typically top-shelf as all McClelland’s Latakia tobacco seems to be. This tin sells for $28


RB2 – McClelland’s 50g tin of Oriental Mixture #12 that is factory dated back to the millennial year 2000. So, a good deal of age on the leaf within. Described this way on www.tobaccoreviews.com – Rich and full of flavor, especially appealing in the evening, still spiced gently enough with Latakia and Turkish leaf to be a superb occasional tobacco for the individual who normally prefers lighter mixtures and Matured Virginias. Just 1 tin available for $18


VS2 – First year 2007 run 50g tin of McClelland’s Grand Oriental series tin Black Sea Sokhoum. As described on the www.tobaccoreviews.com website – “Sokhoum tobacco in grown on the mountain slopes in Georgia, beyond the far eastern shore of the Black Sea. It is considered by many to be among the finest Oriental tobacco grown. Sokhoum is a strain of Samsun seed and the leaves have the appearance of Samsun and share a very similar aroma, but notice how the flavor has a quality that is almost cigar-like, rich and deep and mellow in this blend. Sokhoum is the easternmost of the Classic Orientals, fewer than 400 miles south of Sokhum is Iraq.” This almost 10-year old tin sells for $14


VV2 – Here’s a nice and ripe older 50g tin of Rattray’s Marlin Flake that is dated to 1998 and has the old Russell Import sticker and gold tin bottom. A tangy broken Virginia Flake with some backbone provided by unflavored Black Cavendish and a touch of spicy Perique. One of Rattray’s top sellers since Washington crossed the Delaware. Just 1 tin available for $32 – SOLD


VV2 – Factory dated to 2006, this is the Kansas City Pipe Club blend Virginia Shag in a 50g tin produced by McClelland’s. As the name implies, an angel hair shag cut deeply rich Virginia with a lot of flavor depth and made in a manner that keeps the contents cool despite the rather rapid burn rate. This well aged, almost 13-year old tin sells for $24 – SOLD


VV2 – From the year 2011 West Coast Pipe Show, this is their show blend, Sierra Nevada that was invented by famous blender Russ Ouellette. As described by www.tobaccoreviews.com – “Difficult to define, this blend contains seven different tobaccos with a flavor that is both unique and satisfying. Sierra Nevada is perfect for a hike in the mountains or while relaxing in front of a fire. This Virginia, Oriental, Perique blend is complex and intriguing with a hint of spice, enjoy!” This 5-year old tin sells for $18


MP2 – One of the C&D originals, this is a 2 oz old shoe polish style tin of Canal Boat. This has long been a favorite of mine in the C&D line-up. The extra large and thick chunks of pure unadulterated Burley combined with some smokey Cyprian Latakia and bits of Black Cavendish (flavor enhanced?), make this a worthy compilation for the pipe. Best enjoyed (for me), in the evenings when I have time to sit and actually savor what I’m smoking. Delightful stuff! Just 1 tin available for $24


GF2 – H&H White Knight first year 2014 production 50g tins. Blender Russ Ouellette’s terrific rendition of the original Balkan Sobranie that is so close it will amaze those of you who have been blessed to have smoked the original. Yes, this one did ring a bell while smoking. If you enjoyed the Oriental presence of the original Balkan Sobranie, then you will certainly like White Knight. The Latakia could not be duplicated, but due to the fact it is much fresher than what I remember of the old BS White, it is more pronounced here. A very nice compilation! I have 1 tin still available for $16


GF2 – Old style label and dated to 2004 come these 50g tins of Robert Lewis Tree Mixture. This is a rather remarkable blend that is very satisfying, and with the 12-years of age, should really shine now. The combination of flavors is just….. different somehow. I can see where this would be a nice change of pace for lovers of both Oriental and Latakia blends. My experience with Tree Mixture was exceptional and I really appreciated the firm dose of strength. I have 3 tins available for $18 per tin


JD2 – Hearth & Home’s Small Batch Virginia Night 50g tin from their Marque Series that is factory stamped back to 2012. Not a simpleton, Virginia Night offers a lot of variance as you work your way down the bowl. The rich and sweet Red combined with what I believe to be some toasted Virginia, made for a presentation that offered a bit of strength and rich Virginia with that touch of depth that you find only in the best Virginia leaf. Just an overall well done compilation. And finally, it burns very cool for a straight Virginia but sipping is advised… not to stave off the heat, but to enjoy every subtle nuance of flavor. Just 1 tin available for $16


TA2 – Mac Baren Gold of Denmark 3-1/2 ounce tin that is factory dated to 2012, giving the contents close to 5-years of ripening in the tin. Gold of Denmark, I am told, is a staple Mac Baren’s blend that is one of their best sellers in both the USA and overseas. It offers a mellow, smooth and light smoking experience. It is an aromatic (honey top note), that should crossover well. If you are a fan of Virginia leaf, Gold of Denmark may deliver what you want but it certainly had more of a Burley taste to me. Just 1 tin available for $18


TA2 – Mac Baren no longer produced Norwood (discontinued in 2014), 3-1/2 ounce tins that are factory dated to 2012, giving the contents close to 5-years of ripening in their tins. As described on www.tobaccoreviews.com – “A mild lightly burning ready-rubbed pipe tobacco manufactured from selected Burley and Virginia tobaccos.” I have 4 tins available for $18 per tin


TA2 – Mac Baren Original Choice 3-1/2 ounce tin that is factory dated to 2012, giving the contents close to 5-years of ripening in the tin. I will recommend this one to the pipe smoking hobbyists among us who don’t care for a lot of tobacco flavor or nicotine and have a sweet tooth. Additionally, you can choo-choo train this one with your puffing cadence and never blister your waggle. It is a blend of Virginia tobacco from North Carolina and mild, air-dried Burley from Tennessee. Just 1 tin available for $18


TA2 – Mac Baren no longer produced Latakia blend in a 3-1/2 ounce tin that is factory dated to 2013, giving the contents close to 4-years of ripening in the tin. A “roll cake” tobacco, spun from well matured Virginia and Cavendish with a special touch of Latakia, bringing out a fresh and wonderful aroma. Just 1 tin available for $18


TA2 – Mac Baren 7 Seas Series Regular Blend in a 3-1/2 ounce tin that is factory dated to 2013, giving the contents close to 4-years of ripening in the tin. As described on www.tobaccoreviews.com – “Black Cavendish and Golden Burleys. A soft and exceptionally mellow smoke. Delightful, aromatic taste.” This one has hints of cocoa and vanilla. Just 1 tin available for $16


TA2 – Mac Baren 7 Seas Series Royal Blend in a 3-1/2 ounce tin that is factory dated to 2013, giving the contents close to 4-years of ripening in the tin. As described on www.tobaccoreviews.com – “An aromatic blend of black and golden tobaccos. A soft and exceptionally mellow smoke. Delightful, aromatic taste.” Just 1 tin available for $16


TA2 – Mac Baren 7 Seas Series Red Blend in 3-1/2 ounce tins that are factory dated to 2012, giving the contents close to 5-years of ripening in the tin. As described on www.tobaccoreviews.com – “Golden Virginias, light brown Burleys and just a touch of Cavendish sweetened with real Cherry extract.” Just 2 tins available for $16 per tin


TA2 – Mac Baren 7 Seas Black Blend in a 3-1/2 ounce tin that is factory dated to 2012, giving the contents close to 5-years of ripening in the tin. Not terribly long ago I received my entire line of the Mac Baren 7 Seas blends and was eager to try them all. The company is really proud of these blends and I can understand why. The aromatic flavoring must be a new invention because I’ve never tasted anything quite like them. Cool and mostly dry burning, 7 Seas Black offers a great variety of flavors and – yippee, – tobacco is one of them! A very refreshing taste sensation that is not at all strong or overwhelming, but lets you know you are smoking pipe tobacco with a very sweet taste. I loved the presentation of liquor in the flavoring of 7 Seas Black as I smoked it. Just 1 tin available for $16


TA2 – Mac Baren Black Ambrosia from the Swish Import era in a 3-1/2 ounce tin that is factory dated to 2003, giving the contents close to 14-years of ripening in the tin. Upon opening the tin, you will have a hard time deciding whether to smoke it or eat it. The smell is wonderful. The casing is unusual in that you don’t really know what it is. It reminded me of berries, honey and nuts. Quality leaf all the way and burned very clean and dry right down to the bottom of the bowl, unusual for an aromatic with this much casing. And that’s testimony to the experience of this famous blending house. This almost 14-year old tin sells for $18


TA2 – The heralded and now no longer produced Mac Baren’s Burley London Blend in 3-1/2 ounce tins that are factory dated to 2013, the last year of production. Introduced in 1965 and discontinued in 2014 when Mc Baren was no longer able to regularly obtain the exception White Burley used in this blend. Just a little Virginia was also included to give the blend a natural sweetness. You will notice the slight natural chocolate note, which is found in all good Burley tobacco. The very special top flavor in combination with the tobaccos gives you a very distinct smoking pleasure. I have 2 of these discontinued tins available for $38 per tin


TA2 – Factory dated back to 2012, these are 3-1/2 ounce tins of Mac Baren’s Navy Mixture. This blend was introduced in 1989 and then discontinued in 2014, so, this one is no longer available. From the www.tobaccoreviews.com website – “An exclusive and satisfying blend, manufactured from high class, full ripe Virginia and matured Burley tobaccos, rounded by a tasty, dark Cavendish.” I have 3 tins available for $18 per tin


TA2 – Factory date coded back to 2008, this is a 9-year old 3-1/2 ounce tin of Mac Baren’s Uncle Louie’s Rum. Uncle Louie (whoever he is), is an aromatic fan for sure. The smell in the pouch was heavenly but it in no way matched the flavor presentation. I thought I smelled gobs of Vanilla and a touch of rum in the pouch, but I never tasted the rum notes at the match (although the Vanilla sure came through). Then the rum flavor crept in at mid bowl and it was good! I’m not sure if this one is still in production. This nearly decade old tin sells for $18


BL2 – Mac Baren’s blockbuster first year 2012 run 5-packs of 100g tins of HH Old Dark Fired. A very nice and bold tobacco. The steaming of the leaf certainly took away any tendency for there to be a bite to the leaf and the earthy flavor of the dark fired Burley leaf was stout and palate fulfilling. The Virginia was in the background and slightly sweetened the overall presentation. The taste was certainly on the high side of medium and I am sure the decades old Burley employed is what makes this one very noticeable in the strength department. Personally, I think this is one of Mac Baren’s finest offerings! I have 2 of these first year 2012 run well aged 5-packs still available for $95 per 5-pack


TA2 – W.O. Larsen Limited Edition 2014 in handsome presentation tins. As described by www.tobaccoreviews.com – “This year W.O. Larsen offers a sophisticated blend of Virginia tobaccos and toasted burley. After a slow heating process Black Cavendish and Highland Whisky is added. A slight hint of orange is noticeable.” I have 3 tins available for $18 per tin


TA2 – From C&D, this is a 2 oz tin of Bridge Mixture that is factory dated to 2012, giving the leaf within a solid almost 5-years of fermentation and ripening. According to www.tobaccoreviews.com – “A sophisticated blend of bright & red Virginias, unsweetened red Virginia cavendish, Turkish, Cyprian latakia and perique with a touch of 20 year old dark fired Kentucky burley for a kicker. Just 1 tin available for $14


TA2 – From C&D, this is a 2 oz tin of Red Stag that is factory dated to 2012, giving the leaf within a solid almost 5-years of fermentation and ripening. According to www.tobaccoreviews.com – “Red and Golden Virginias provide a pleasant base for this medium-strength English. Latakia and Turkish Orientals offer their own addition to the blend giving it a pungent smoky and earthy flavors and hints of pepper. An excellent all round medium English, Red Stag is a nicely balanced and very well rounded blend.” Just 1 tin available for $14


TA2 – From C&D, this is a 2 oz tin of Black Duck that is factory dated to 2013, giving the leaf within a solid almost 4-years of fermentation and ripening. According to www.tobaccoreviews.com – “Richly earthy and woodsy, this blend of unsweetened brown and black Cavendish (specially cured Kentucky Burley), Latakia and Turkish Oriental leaf is a hearty full-bodied blend indeed. Certainly not an elegant smoke, it is nonetheless charming and rather complex once the initial surprise at its strength and earthiness subsides.” Just 1 tin available for $14

VS2 – Astley’s #55 Elizabethan in a 50g tin that is dated back to 2004. I think Astley’s #55 is a much better tasting tobacco with at least 3-5 years of age to it, so, I think this one should be perfectly ripe. Although I am also a fan of nicotine and full flavor, I still enjoyed #55 although it is mild in both of those areas, and I highly recommend this tobacco to my briar brothers and sisters who tend to enjoy lighter fare. It has a wonderful taste (somewhat sweet in a figgy, fermented sort of way). I have just 1 tin available for $18


CK2 – From Dan Tobacco, this is their highly popular Bill Bailey’s Balkan Blend in 50g tins from 2012, so, a solid almost 5-years of aging. Typical of many Balkans, this one starts out with heavier waves of Latakia and then settles down into a subtle spicy smoke as the Orientals kick in. I think there is additional spice here as Perique can be detected, although deep in the background of every puff until the bottom of the bowl is reached. If you enjoy Balkan tobaccos, I do think you’ll enjoy this offering from Bill Bailey (whoever the heck that is.) I have 3 tins available for $16 per tin


TA2 – 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 delievers 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 $14


BJ2 – Reiner Professional Wild Cut in a 100g presentation tin that is dated back to 2009. Those of you who are far more expert than I at smoking various tobacco types know that aromatics need to be “sipped” to be fully enjoyed. But frankly, I found this blend remained cool even when my puffing cadence increased considerably. The taste was somewhat like fermented fruit or perhaps a fruit flavored brandy. Quite elegant and I applaud the effort of the blender. It even burned to a mostly dry ash – another unique feature that I find in stronger aromatics with only natural flavoring. I have 1 tin available for $24
