Anybody ever smoked Holiday Excursion? Good? Bad? tempted to see what it's about.
You can't smoke tin art, Ted, and that's the highlight.
It bit me so bad I didn't have enough time to fully suffer through the foul taste.
The best description I could ever give for this is that if I had to smoke either it or Mixture 79, I'd take M79 in a landslide.
Yeah, I kept the cool tin!
I would dare say I've spent 200 dollars on tobacco that was, to me, unsmokeable, simply because it came in a cool tin.
I havent tried the new Holiday Excurison ... the old Holiday was a lane product ... wasnt to bad . If possible , I'd try a sample before getting a tub . The tub art is pretty cool .. gotta admit
So buy the tin and fill it with somethings else? Hahaha! Thanks, I'll save myself the torture!
It would be worth a shot to buy the tin and try the tobacco. Others opinions may not be yours.
Gotta say, though - the odds are against you getting anything out of your purchase except a cool tin.
That's a good point, Dan, I've paid plenty for old empty tins before, so if you're looking from that perspective it's not so bad.
Bingo. I'm searching for a tin of Rose & Crown Tavern tobacco - tobacco not necessary. I just like the tin art. I bought a book from Ben Rapaport that's full of pics of old tobacco tins and it is the coolest thing ever!
If you want to buy tobacco for the tin - I recommend going for the W. O. Larsen
I almost bought Holiday Excursion just for the tin art...thankfully that didn't happen.
