    Guys, I buy alot from Tinderbox, I say its easy, conventient, The staff at the one in Wolfchase mall is pretty knowledgable, they have Dan Bluenote and Devils Holliday, Mccleland 2015, Coyote Classic.. ect, frog morton.. not just a huge selection, but reasonable, and nice stuff to try.
    My main question is:
    What is a comparable blend to tinderbox blends??
    I know most of it is Lane or Stockebye.
    I have figured out
    Midnight = Lane BCA
    Wilshire = Lane 1Q
    North Sea = Stockebye Kentucky Nougat.
    now Im trying to figure out what this Black Russian stuff is, ive been smoking it for well over a year now, and I gotta say, it doesn't seem nearly as PG laden as something like black Tie, or some of there other aro's.
    Even there "english" blends , have that sort of PG thing going, and the only ones I really can stand are Sherlocks Choice, and Coventry.

    If you guys know what the real names of these baccys are, please share.
    oh..and they are labeling now : 2010 Flake .. im thinking 2015 Mccleland, its got that infamous Ketchuppy smell, but its a awesome Baccy, despite the smell.

    Propylene Glycol - a sort of moisturizing syrup they put on some tobaccos that makes them last a millenium but reduces the smoking properties rather substantially.

    Nick,

    Have you tried the "philospher" brand of tinderbox offerings? Not that I know what it really is but was wondering what your thoughts were.

    No jay, I haven't tried Philospher, as far as English Blends go, Im not an English conissuer(sic).
    I do enjoy them tho', but im not sure what those blends really are, as far as other names.
