    I've smoked a few latakia based samples they sent me. They're fine, but not I'm willing to pay 70% NYS tax on them fine.

    I don't blame you.
    There are only blends that are still around to warrant paying a 70% tax.

    I have never paid NYS taxes on thier products. Of course I live in NJ. If I lived in NY I would not buy from them either.

    OK I bought some. I like it, it's not as sweet as I thought it would be after reading Park Lanes description of it, (could just be my Dr. G. needs a cleaning though), but it's pretty darn good! I really like Virginia's so really I was doomed to like it anyhow! I guess my 1864 will just have to wait, the $10 I had saved up is now $5 and at $30ish a can it will be awhile before I get more, but whatever, this is awesome and I do have a leavings jar that's like 98% 1864 anyway so... :byg:

    P.S. Thanks DoverPipes!
