    This must've just been released in the last day or so since I was doing some mock orders last night on various UK based sites and didn't see it.

    Sounds like a bog standard aro blend with the collectability being in the tins themselves. I personally think SG missed a trick here and could've released a decent virginia blend that lent itself to aging. I don't plan on tainting any of my pipes with champagne flavouring.

    Another one that we probably will not get stateside.

    mmm......'fizz of champagne', sounds interesting! - I may pick up a tin, when I call there at the weekend. "Mock orders"?.....is that filling in the order form, but omitting your card number?;)
    OT

    I like to fill up my cart on a bunch of different sites and go to checkout and then see which one turns out the cheapest with shipping. It's usually always Greens of Leeds. You're lucky you can just pop in there Ted, it's actually on my "to do" list to visit both Greens and mysmokingshop's B&M in Preston, they've both provided me with brilliant service over the last couple of years.

    Sounds interesting. I think I'll get hold of a tin and keep it until I submit my Dissertation, a fizz of champagne sounds suitably celebratory.

    Great minds and all that. I use both those sites but actually prefer Mysmoking. The SG 2012 Jubilee has its value purely in the collectability and is for sure going to sell out pretty quick. I love SG and can't see them turning out a poor quality baccy just for the sake of its tins collectability value so I might just invest in a set for the sake and see what they've done.

    Plenty available at Mr Snuff if you wanna pay the heavy markup!

    Well, I put an order for the Jubilee in. Looking forward to cracking it open.

    As for me, I'd rather spend the same money for 2 tins of FVF or BBF from JR during the next big sale.

    I'm not keen on the idea of fizzy, champagne flavoured baccy.

    Someone pick me up a tin! I'm sure they'll be
    gone by the time I arrive in June. :(

    I had to order a tin of it while I was shopping at mr snuff last night. I'm a sucker for collectables :)

    I may or may not smoke all the contents, but the
    labels would look awesome on my guitar case!
