    Anyone tried Carey's Bruno Special Tobacco - what are your thoughts compared to Ogdens St Bruno?
    Thinking of ordering some.

    Never tried it but it sounds interesting. If you order it and don't like it you can always trade it on here. Dan do a tobacco that looks like it is meant to be a St Bruno clone too. Not sure if it is but the packaging looks clone-like, even if it does contain Perique:

    "Please note: Tobacco is dispatched on Mondays only. Any orders placed by Friday 3 p.m. will be dispatched the following Monday."

    Doesn't exactly encourage you to spend your money does it? If I order now (Monday am) it won't get dispatched until next Monday!
    I can walk the 1/2 mile into town and get the real thing and when postage taken into consideration will work out cheaper.

    Strange shipping policy for sure. If you can get the real thing, you might as well. Chances are the Carey version isn't as good as the real deal. Clones often don't quite cut the mustard.
