I wish there was. I'd hoard that stuff like no tomorrow! Til then, I just hoard tins.
I know. I just got my first tin of it a week or so ago. Everytime I fire up one of those frisbees I fall further in love with the stuff. If I could find it in bulk Id dump all Bayou Mornign to free up some jars for it.
For a cheaper alternative, try PS Bullseye. Not quite Escudo, but not a bad alternative!
I just read up on the Bullseye.... It gets some pretty good reviews and I trust recomendations from our forum members... I'm putting in an order for 4 ounces and give her a shot.
You might want to order some LNF if you haven't tried that. For me, it's more like Escudo than LBF. I've smoked pounds and pounds of LNF and a few tins of Escudo. For some odd reason, I don't like Bullseye at all. I couldn't make it through my first 4 oz order of LBF and traded it off.
I was looking at that one too. Dang it, might just have to order both.
I've smoked a couple tins of Escudo. I just opened a tin of Hal O' the Wynd last week and only smoked one bowl but that bowl gave me the same cinnamon type flavor I get from Escudo as well. I have only had one bowl as I said but from that one bowl I thought the two tasted very similar and HOTW just looks like rubbed out Escudo.
HOTW is available in bulk.
Escudo is certainly one that should be available in bulk. At least the tins stack well (-:
I'll second WyoBob in that the LBF with it's little cavendish center doesn't really match up that well but the LNF is a great alternative, not a substitute mind but an alternative, for Escudo.
Hmmmm, only 5 tins left, must buy more...
Well, just orders about $125.00 worth of stuff. Wish I would have known about that HOTW.
I completely agree. I love Escudo but it can get a bit pricey if it's an everyday smoke.
I find LBF is a bit like Escudo but much sweeter. LBF has cavendish, Escudo does not. LNF is also kind of similar but does not have the high perique content that Escudo does. In fact, I think it's kind of lacking in perique.
One of these days I intend on trying to blend my own Escudo match.
I love Escudo but Telegraph Hill has won my VaPer heart. It is not available in bulk but it is in 8 oz tins. It is a fabulous VaPer. I have not opened any tins of Escudo since I started smoking Telegraph Hill. It is not a clone, it is different for sure. But it has a burst of that Perique spice that I love. JMHO.
Telegraph Hill huh......
Might have to give that one a try.
