    Since Ming was nice enough to let us know about JRs recent stock of SG, I thought I would give you guys a heads-up. Mars Cigar has most of the SG blends in stock. No FVF, but they do have SL and 1792 in tins and bulk. Not as cheap as JR, so don't kill the messenger.

    I did notice a weird thing about their prices. Bulk is $62.25 per pound, but the 250 gram tins are only $29.50. Why would you buy a pound when you can get 17+ ounces for cheaper? You don't even need to jar it.

    Edit: Wait a minute. The 250 grams are boxes, aren't they? Might need to jar it, but still.....?

    That's fairly common...seeing 16oz. costing more than a straight 500gms. It surely has to do with having to measure out, and therefore, 'bust up', packages. Probably. :)

    Thanks for the notice!

    Seems like I'm always doing that. If you order from smokingpipes, then you know that it shows up on your card as Laudisi Enterprises or something like that. I keep the orders around $50, and my wife thinks Laudisi is a gas station.

    I was very disappointed in their selection yesterday. However, their C&D stock was nice, and the McClelland offerings were super aged!

    No FVF :-( Did order a couple of pounds of SL though. Thanks for the heads up! Means I don't need to touch the 2 pounds from October!

    250 grams = this usually refers to 5 x 50 gram tins wrapped up in a nice bundle
