  • My top five is based on blends that I enjoy the most without breaking the bank.  Supply and cost issues force me to omit some blends that I like just as much.

    Peter Stokkebye Balkan Supreme (Balkan)
    Altadis Count Pulaski (American English)

  • Some of you guys have Penzance??? Where did you purchase it? WHERE!?!?!?!?!?

    Here's my current list of top five favorites (not in any particular order):
    Rattray's Hal O' the Wynd
    Japanese Tobacco Inc.'s Koiki (since I can't get it cheap from Japan anymore [I refuse to be ripped off by that one site!], I searched for an alternative brand that also offers an all natural, additives-free tobacco; and I found it in American Spirit's Original Blend. This stuff is awesome!)
    McClelland's Townsman Cavendish (Blue)
    McClelland's Frog Morton
    Samuel Gawith's 1792 Flake

    Other rotating favorites:
    Samuel Gawith's Squadron Leader
    Captain Earle's Ten Russians
    Peter Stokkebye's Golden Dansk
    Butera's Royal Vintage Sweet Cavendish
    Benjamin Hartwell's Evening Stroll
    Dan Tobacco's Sweet Vanilla Honeydew
  • @itsuke you can get penzance from 4noggins.com if you don't mind paying 40$ for a 2oz tin. The stuff is good but not 40$ good.
  • University flake
    1792
    Louisiana flake
    Orlik Golden Sliced
    Commonwealth
  • The tin on 4noggins is also a consignment, and they don't guarantee quality of the stuff inside. The prices for some of those other consignment tins is absolutely ridiculous, there are plenty of good tobaccos out there to try.

    Peterson's Irish Flake
  • @itsuke Mayan Imports in New Orleans "had" 3 tins the other day. Strangely enough when I left they were out of stock...

    My favorites are quickly becoming ropes/twist. I enjoy the taste and strength. I a little goes a long way making it pretty economical even though on a per pound basis it appears to be expensive.

    @MikeB. That looks like a great line up for my tastes.
  • $40? I've bought old batch Balkan Sobranie for much less...
  • Mr.O you are a lucky man :)
  • Here's five that I like:

    Hartwell's Evening Stroll
    Savinelli Aroma
    Glen Piper ( a good English/aromatic cross)
    Granger
    McBaren Scottish Mixture
