    Just curious what bulk tobaccos are meant to be copies of OTC brands?

    For instance: RLP-6 from Lanes is supposed to be Capt Black White (right?).

    I ask, because I do enjoy some OTC's, but they are pretty expensive around here, so it might be a better idea to buy bulks. I'm especially interested if there's something in bulk like SWR? I smoked some last night and was pleasantly surprised by it...but at $6/pouch it's a bit expensive if I want to buy it in bulk.

    This may sound obvious, but if you like SWR...why not buy a tub of SWR? (1.5 oz. pouchx10=60$ per 15 oz.your price. A 14oz. tub plus shipping will be around 30-35$ at one of the e-tailers.) Definitely cheaper.

    Thought I should add...since pipesandcigars has SWR for 25 and change...well, you could look at their hearth and home blends. For almost the same price (maybe cheaper considering a pound purchase), they have some well liked blends. Their va/pers are worth the price of admission.
