just cracked a tin of GL Pease "spark plug" and it's probably my new favourite... but every time i open a tin of tobacco it's my new favourite. i love cutting my own flakes off the brick. soon will be ordering some 12yo escudo... still working on a tin of warped "until the end" tho. almost out of eileen's dream but i'm not in any hurry to buy another aromatic... unless i'm breaking in a new pipe. it's not like in the states where you can afford to buy a tonne of different tins.... each purchase is carefully thought out and truly appreciated. who knows what will be next ! i rarely ever buy the same tobacco twice... i like to enjoy different things. looking forward to maybe soon also trying "blackpoint". fun fun.
It really is easy to take it for granted here in the US, both on availability and price compared to so many other places. I can certainly understand why gettin a tin here and there would be a big deal.
Greg Pease has some great blends, I especially like Union Square and so many of his San Francisco themed Virginia blends. The guy has the majic touch,

I kinda like SparkPlug my damn self. I am a lot like you, for the most part the newest tin becomes my favorite blend. Good on ya for not being in any hurry to do any more aromatics for a while. Now, having never met you the only advice I can give is to try a bunch of different blends until you find yours. A few of my favorites are Dunhill 965, Bengal Slices, Pirate Kake, Haunted Bookshop, Pegasus, Stone Haven, and some Deluxe Navy Flake oh and lest ye not forget Haddo's Delight. These are my picks and if you try them............................. Enjoy!
