    Man, I can buy a can or tub of OTC for what some of you pay for a 50g tin, that's just ridiculous!

    Give it some time. I'll wager that you're really gonna like it, and $11 will soon seem like a more than fair price. I'm still working on the bulk and tub section of my cellar, but once I get that up and going I'm gonna focus on tins and Erinmoe is one of my favorites. I'd like to have about five tins on hand. I also plan to have a few tins of Orlik Golden Slices (OGS) to keep the Erinmore from getting lonely. OGS is another really good and relatively inexpensive flake (about the same price as Erinmore), and if you haven't tried it yet you really should. Erinmore is has a lot of really nice sweet flavor to it, but OGS has a more natural profile.

    I was just going to say the same thing, I can get a tub of carter hall for less than what some are paying for a 50g tin.

    Social engineering by way of taxation really sucks with sharp dirty teeth.

    Yep it really does. Social engineering is nearly always a failure. Often ending in violence and bloodshed.

    $18 for a 50g tin of Dan Tobacco Treasures of Ireland: Galway. 2 years ago a 100g tin of WOL 1864 was $18.75, now it's around $26. I think I'm going to start cellaring!

    Hoarding will only drive the prices higher.

    Buy bulk whenever possible. Peter Stokkebye blends are quality tobacco at ridiculously low prices. I have many pounds salted away.
