    As some of you may or may not have seen, I was lucky enough to snag a Brigham three dot in Robert Leslie's pipe a day sale.

    Well, I was thinking, what better way to break in my new Brigham than with some Brigham baccy. Now, I have it on good authority that Brigham's "King Street" blend is some mighty tasty baccy...and I was wondering where one might acquire some if one were in the market to buy said tobacco? :D

    Looking forward to your responses! Oh, and if there are other Brigham blends that you think would make a better break-in baccy, by all means let me know.

    hes up north in Labrador. If he cant get it shipped from our suggested stores i dont mind bying the tins and sending it to him.
    Its a nice blend made by Solani in Germany for Brigham, i just cant handle the solani head ache lol. Theres kentuchy in this blend and it gives me a super migrane head ache. It has a nice toasted taste and you have a nice camp fire smell.

    I heard back from one retailer in B.C. that I wrote to, but he doesn't ship to other Provinces. Which, now that I think of it, used to happen to me a lot when I was trying to buy Cuban cigars from Canadian B&Ms. I put out a few more feelers, and I'll wait to see if I hear anything back. But, if I don't hear anything soon, I think the best bet would be to get one of you guys to pick me up a tin, and I will P*yP*l you the money.

    UPDATE: Just heard back from Casablanca...they have 2 tins of King Street in stock, but they don't ship.

    David, seeing since you're the closest to me, do you think you could pick it up for me and I'll send you the money? I'll send you a PM.

    It's good. If you can't get a local supply there are other English mixes in that same vein which are readily imported - Westminster from Pease being one, British Woods from McClelland another. We can get ya hooked in somehow.

    Just make sure you don't send Emond any money - he'll just go on a spending spree in Gatineau, probably go downtown and buy a new goat.

    Cool beans! Yeah, it seems that there's a weird rule about sending tobacco/liquor from Province to Province. Thank God for the kindness of forum friends like you. :)

    There are rules about liquor and tobacco crossing provincial borders due to different taxation and some different laws and age requirements. For example, it is technically illegal to buy beer in Quebec and bring it into Ontario without paying Ontario liquor taxes, which are much higher than in La Belle Province.
