    I have one more tin of this that I just opened this week.
    Ugh! Does ANYONE like this stuff? I'd be happy to send
    it to someone....or use it in the shower. The casing on
    this is way over the top for me.

    BTW, Sasquatch, I have a sealed tin of 466 for you. :thumbsu:

    Snake I've never had the Independance, only the Liberty (which I really like) and Patriot Flake (not bad but there is better). What's the casing that's got you so riled up?

    Rugs,

    Unknown. It really smells of plums, or raisins yet overly so. Perfumey would
    be an understatement as well.

    A tin of 466 huh? Caledonian Supreme... that must be old stock, Snake cuz I don't think it's been distributed in the US for about 10 years. I would certainly take it off your hands but only if it's not a favorite of yours.

    As to the tobacco in question lot of virginias have a sort of raisiny fermented smell, and I am yet to determine if it is "natural" or if there's a sort of raisin casing going on some or all of these blends. And come to think of it, I've never especially enjoyed a blend with a tin note like that.

    I just received the press release on these blends. I decided not to be seduced by the tin art, which is beautiful. Good price and attractive package. I'm more tempted by Midnight Ride but I'm going to take a pass for now.
