    A list of really special tobaccos that are not available in the US would be nice to have so if anyone is traveling out of country we can try and pick them up or try them. Any suggestions?
    Maybe list the tobacco and country where it is available.

    Also, why are some tobaccos not available, and yet others from the same country are imported? (Like Condor) :msty:

    Everyone knows someone in another country that could facilitate a buy & ship.

    Theres a good amount of blends available from The EU but theres a number that aren't . Some blends , like Condor or Ogedens Walnut are OTC over there and used to be here but paranoid laws over there make it scary for some companies to want to export , I guess . Plus , theres blends that they sell in their market and not ours . We do the same thing with our OTC .. they aren't over there . Cigarettes , heck .. For every brand cigarette we are familiar with here in the USA , there's that many more brand that are made here and shipped over seas that we've never heard of . We make cigarettes that go all over the world packaged in other languages etc ..
    The kicker is that there are online Brit stores that have stuff I'd like to get , though expensive , aren't shipped here cause the shops over there aren't allowed to take credit card orders from over seas . Theres online shops in Denmark etc .. and they may or may not ship but they are pricey too and it's hard to understand their website being in a language that use consonants like they were going out of style :beck:

    I'd like to get the Brits OTC stuff

    He does have a nice selection though. And he is one of very few who ships snuff here so I'm not really complaining!

    I wanted to order Condor longcut, but I see that it is not an option anymore.

    That is a great idea. A single database listing the country and all the must try blends that can only be had there. It would help you zero in on things while you are there. Or more importantly, when someone you know is traveling there and doesn't know anything about tobacco, you could give them specific blends to ask for.

    So, Mr. Snuff will ship Revor plug? I understand it would not be cost effective buying from over seas stores, but for the occasional treat I don't mind paying the premium.

    I'll be traveling to St. Maarten in November and am interested as to what I'll find there. I'm interested in a cigar or two, but more so for the pipe tobacco. Everybody online just goes on and on about their cigars but doesn't even mention pipe tobacco.

    Looks I'll be able to find St. Bruno RR so far. Still looking, though.
