    Kind of scary to think there were only 5 barrels left. So glad it made a comeback!

    Good article. Very nice that this particular type of tobacco (and the techniques in its production) has survived. I'm glad the old man got to see it make a comeback before he checked out.

    Going to have to keep my eyes open for this one, sounds like it is one not to miss.

    Very interesting article. I appreciate your sharing this. I am glad to see the market insure this old tired and true method continued.

    I have been to that area a couple of times and this article sets the stage well. I remember Picayune cigs were made with this tobacco and as young men it was an act of courage to buy and smoke a pack hen we were out drinking. Now I see it as an additive not as a single tobacco.
    This was a really good article. Thanks for sharing.
