    Where can I find the lowest price for some PS Luxury Twist Flake? Is it a good bulk replacement for Orlik Golden Slice?

    Mars Cigars has the best price if you go for the full 1.5 pound box.

    Pipes and Cigars.Com has it at the best price for a pound or less.

    Cup O Joes.com has prices just a little higher than Pipes and Cigars, but I think Joes has better customer service.

    LTF (Luxury Twist Flake) has an aromatic quality and taste that reminds me of Danish Butter Cookies, whereas I think OGS (Orlik Golden Slice) has a more natural flavor. I don't know if they really compare, other than they are both very good. I like LTF better, and it's a lot less expensive. I don't think you can go wrong with LTF.

    I've been getting tobacco from them for quite a while ... they are good people . At some point I thought they were gonna stop selling pipe tobacco on line but it seems thats past ... which is a good thing .

    Luxury Navy Flake LNF is the 'Luxury' blend that approximates OGS...but LNF is a vaper. If you can't abide perique, you won' t like LNF.

    Is that their regular price for LTF? Are those their regular prices for LNF and LBF?

    Thanks for the link Ruff. I ordered a bunch of samplers and 4oz of LTF. Hope it comes in good shape.

    Thanks for this! They have a BUNCH of Drug store blend pouches, at decent prices! I've been wanting to put an order in of some Drug store blends, but $6+ for 2 oz of some of their drug store blends (that they likely get from a tub) from 4noggins just seemed crazy to me. I ordered some LTF from them as well!

    Exactly...the shipping was pricey, at $14...but I saved that or more over ordering from 4Noggins... I got 4 ozs of LTF for the price of 2ozs everywhere else.

    I sent PipesAndCigars a couple emails, and I didn't get a response. Even with the high shipping, it's not bad. I may order from them again...it just kind of sucks they don't have a good selection of pipes.

    I've tried a number of the Century aro blends ... the z50 balck cordial is really killer. The rum and maple was nice . The Century natural is a super nice smoke . I didnt care for the Irish cream or what ever its called . They used to carry Macbaren bulk but dont anymore ... that hurt cause i used to buy my MB GE there . They have PA Soft vanilla and Cherry Vanilla ... both are very good .I've been bagging PS stuff there . It's where i ordered sweet vanilla for the first time . Their 6 dollar rubber lined vynl fold up pouch is tops ... I've used mine everyday for about a year i guess and it keeps tobacco perfect . I could go on about wv . I wished they had more ... but what they have is what I need .

    Thanks for the link to them. I bought the z5o black cordial and the PA cherry/vanilla. Along with 6 different PS items.

    Cool ! youre gonna be " pipe happy " for a while ! It's nice when a store /site offers 1 oz blends . I really dig the PA cherry vanilla ... keep it in good condition .. if it gets dry .. it gets warmer . It's not like it's a wet aro by any means . I left some out and it got dry ... thought I'd try it anyway but it wasnt as good dry . It's perfect for hot weather .. I ordered some before a trip to Miami at the end of last winter to test it in heat and it was a great smoke ! The PA Soft vanilla is real good too . Lets us know what ya think of the z50 after a few bowls !

    I got some Rum and Maple. I was browsing through Boswells, and saw that it was not in stock there, so I figured it has to be good stuff. Good thing I ordered some :)

    I also got PA Cherry Vanilla, Half and Half, SWRA and regular PA.
