    I only recently became aware of SG. Haven't smoked any yet - was going to try Full Virginia Flake, or at least buy some to put away for awhile.

    I notice that a lot of the online retailers seem to be frequently out of their stuff. Is this a common thing, or something temporary? When the e-tailers get some in, is it hoarded pretty quickly?

    Put every single e-tailer in your favorites list, and check it EVERY morning. That is the only way you will find it. It will sell out the same day usually. For the other blends besides FVF, most places stock it regularly.

    You'll probably have a better chance with Pipes and Cigars. I see they have put many of SG tobaccos in stock as bulk. The last time I checked they were out of FVF but had just about everything else. I think stocking SG in bulk is a new thing for P&C. Whatever you get in their SG line will cost you $69. a pound. You can probably get on a waiting list. P&C will alert you when FVF comes in.

    Good luck. Ol Brokedik.

    I feel for you guys searching for FVF. I think you have a better chance of getting struck by lightning.

    Feeling your pain.

    After BradnTx did a review on H &H...I decided to try a few blends since I never had before. Nutin fancy about this smoke...But I really like H&H.. Louisana Red, LJ Heart Va. & Marble Kake. Between McClelland & H&H...for bulk tobacco's...I see no reason to spend time searching . jus my opinion.

    I'm working on a 2008 tin of #22 now (which is awesome), really like bulk 2015, and tried bulk 5100 - thought it was ok, but kind of monochrome.
