    My first recent order after being away form the pipe consisted of Night Cap, Balkan Sasieni, Best Brown Flake, Mississippi Mud and Frog Morton's Cellar. I know I tend not to like aromatics. The top three have been Night Cap, Balkan Sasieni and Frog Morton's Cellar in no order. I am Looking for suggestions for my my next order. I am looking for 2-3 50g tins. I have to worry about customs when I order things :(.

    Thanks for the advise,
    Zac

    If I had to place an order right now from my usual website, using the criteria you specified I would pick:

    GL Pease Key Largo
    MacBaren Old Dark Fired
    C&D Star of the East Flake

    First one, because I am tearing my way through a tin at the moment and can't get enough of it.
    Second, I haven't tried, but it sounds like my kind of thing.
    Third one, because I have tried the Star of the East mixture and would be keen to try the flake.

    If I was to place an order for three different tobaccos, bulk or tins, I would ditch the SotE, and put in some Beck's Ol' Limey Bastard.

    Incidentally, where do you live, and why can you only order tins?

    I live in South Korea. I can order bulk or tins but need to keep my orders at 250g or less in order to avoid a headache in customs.

    Nightcap, Balkan Sasieni, and Frog Cellar eh? Hmmm.

    Pipes Wilke #400, Peter Stokkebye's Proper English, and I second Old Dublin (or Odyssey and a shot of Jamesons).
