    Guys, if you have to go to some deserted island and don't know when you can come back but you can bring your pipes with you, which tobaccos from your cellar will be in your bag?

    My list would look something like this:

    Samuel Gawith Squadron Leader
    McClelland Frog Morton
    McClelland Frog Morton On The Bayou
    McClelland Frog Morton On The Town
    McClelland Town Topic
    McClelland Bulk 5110
    4Noggins Three Blind Moose
    4Noggins Bald Headed Teacher
    Dan Tobacco Da Vinci
    G.L.Pease Chelsea Morning
    Balkan Sobranie

    Gotta have some 5100 Red Cake and some PA. Presbyterian would be nice for a change of pace.

    I have read many times about 5100 but never tried, must be something nice and sweet...

    To me, the citrus/sweet taste isn't as apparent in 5100 as it is in OGS, but 5100 has this McClelland ketchup note that I love and the tobacco taste beneath it is wonderful.

    I wish I could, it is impossible to import bulk tobacco to my country at the moment, so I have to wait for a friend from USA to come here, or just visit USA!
