I've been doing some surfing of the web and I can't seem to find where to buy any Peter Heinrichs Curly Block. I heard about it in a podcast I listen to but can't seem to find it on the web. Does anybody have a line on some of this great sounding tobacco? Or perhaps some of you have tried it and can talk me into something better or comparable but easier to get? I am summoning the Patch's seemingly infinite wisdom yet again!
Jiminks did sn update on this blend in October. STG is making it now. I do not know for a fact. But is thus what is now being sold as Peter Heinrichs Curly, on a few different sites? Listed as a vaper. I’ve never tried it. Sounds good. is it anything thing like DAN Salty Dogs?

“A friend sent me a sample of the new PH Curly Block, which was made this past August. Mac Baren no longer makes it. STG does. They decreased the amount of perique, added burley, and are using a lesser Virginia. Guess I'll be updating my review. I wanted to get the word out to my friends as soon as possible in case any of you are thinking about purchasing it. I'll start a couple threads about it in a couple of days.
Jim’s updated review at tobacco reviews.com:
“ Update 10-5-2020: As STG has changed the formula, I am posting a review of this version. The fermented Virginias provide a fair amount of tangy ripe dark fruit, a lot of earth, bread, and wood, mild sugar, some stewed dark fruit, mild tart and tangy citrus with some grass, a little floralness, spice, and very light acidity. They are the lead components. The very nutty, earthy, woody, lightly spicy and floral, moderately rugged, bold burley plays a strong support role, though its effect varies at times and virtually equals the Virginias at its peak. The perique is spicy, raisiny, figgy, and plumy with date overtones is a secondary player with a lesser effect than it had in the original production. Has a touch of licorice, prune and plum toppings, though they don’t sublimate the tobaccos. The strength and nic-hit are medium. The taste level is a step stronger. No chance of bite or harshness, and has few rough edges. The block will take some time to slice and prepare to your personal specifications. It’s moist and needs some dry time. Well balanced, it burns cool, clean and slow with a fairly consistent, deeply rich sweet, nutty, floral, spicy flavor that extends to the long lingering, pleasant after taste. The room note is a notch stronger. Requires some relights, and leaves very little moisture in the bowl if packed with care, and dried a mite. Unlike the previous manufacture, this can be an all day smoke. Three and a half stars.
