    Does anyone know if this comes in anything smaller than 100g tins?

    Being a bagpiper, I really want to try this (to see if it's really what I dream of) but don't want to pay $20+shipping for a 100g tin that I may or may not like.

    I thought the description on that sounded good too. I'm curious to know how it tastes, so hope you try some and let us know.

    I bought blind a few weeks ago, 100g tin from my local B&M; before the first bowl was done, I was hooked... a more thoroughly mellow smoke I've yet to discover.

    I've only seen 100g tins, nothing smaller and none in bulk either. I wish JRcigars carried it.

    Wow atleast someone likes it.. I tried it along time ago and it was some of the worst hot smoking stuff I have ever tried and the aftertaste could gag a maggot, but could have been a bad batch as well

    As far as I know, all Rattrays blends are 100g tins.

    No no I smoked it everyway you can.. I smoke all day and most of the night my tounge is made of leather..it dident bite me it was just hot- not from being smoked to fast.. to each his own though...pembroke is a better-same topping as bagpipers just better quality INMOH........

    Some blends come in 50g and 100g tins, like Red Rap and Black Mal, but Bagpiper's only comes in 100's. I believe that somewhere out there there may be one-pound bulk bags (bought 3 Noggins that way years ago), but I'm not sure.

    I'd like to think I am. I teach the bagpipe band at my old high school where I learned to play in the first place.

    Here's the band I play in at a competition here in San Diego. I'm second from the left, as you watch, in the front row.

    I have no clue of the tobacco, but the video was cool.

    Thanks guys. I guess I'll just try and find some at a B&M to try to save on shipping costs.

    I tried it a while back and really enjoy it. I'm pretty sure I can get a sample to you, if you're interested.
