I blame Puff for this!! Back in September some may remember I ended up at the Iwan Ries & Co. store in Chicago and ended up buying a boatload of Aeros... and I've barely cracked them. My Secret Santa was also very generous to me. Then there was the visit with Puff last month who added to my cellar, and now more importantly, my taste buds. I just ordered from Pipes and Cigars another boatload of tobacco. This time almost exclusively Virginias and almost all of it flake. This is all Puff's fault. Had he not given me that Solani Silver Flake and OGS in those speed loaders, I would have continued to convince myself that VA's were just too strong for me. Now I know that while they can be dangerous to the head, they are truly dangerous to the wallet once you discover what you've been missing. - Dunhill Flake (50g) x 3 - Dunhill Deluxe Navy Rolls (50g) x 3 - Solani Siver Flake 660 (100g) - This stuff is GOOD! - Orlick Golden Sliced (100g) - Reiner Golden Label (100g) - Reiner Copper Label (100g) - Cornell and Diehl Interlude (2 oz. tin) - McClelland Christmas Cheer 2010 (100g) And just for good measure, and since my shipping was free, I ordered a cob... can't have too many, right (again, Puff's fault). Now, I'm lucky if I get to smoke once or twice a week right now. Considering I probably have in the neighborhood of 4 lbs or more of toby on hand, I must say mad (not mad, mad... crazy mad). But I'll just have to convince the wife I'm gearing up for prohibition... Puff, I trust you know that I blame you in jest. For all who know him here, Puff is a great educator on toby, and a real gentleman and advocate for this hobby/lifestyle. Thank you, sir!:thankyou: P.S. - I still enjoy my aeros!
