    Oh wow, I didn't see the quantities when I was looking on my phone. That is a huge haul!

    Jdto: I'll bet the UPS guy will do a little swearing when the shipment comes in.

    Ruffinogold: I'll smoke it sparingly so it'll last until New Year's Eve!

    Wow im flabbergasted,
    rough calculation to buy that amount of baccy in the UK would
    be approx £10 per 50 grams
    ten x 50 grams per pound
    = £1300
    JESUS!!!

    You Yanks don't realise how lucky you are!!!

    A great score for sure. You are smart to be loading up now before prices double and triple. It is not going to be fun in another few years.

    Wow Jim, I made a order with them but nowhere near that much. Only got 11 2oz tins. I took advantage of their 20% off on the Hearth and Home blends. Iam trying the Marquee series mostly.

    Gunslinger,

    I had been saving up to place this order, knowing that they were going to do the sale. I may place a second, smaller order so I can get some more Anniversary Kake. You're right about buying now. I'm very concerned about this subject.

    I saw your latest order that you posted on another forum. I'm a beginner compared to you. Guess I'll have to live with my last 2 tins of Astley's 44, which are 10 years old because I doubt I'll see it again with everybody buying it up. Probably never see Stonehaven either.

    Well, my order, minus the back ordered Angler's Dream Pipe and 6 tins of Louisiana Red, have arrived in great shape. I got free samples, too. No calendar, though.
