I finally had a chance to pack a bowl of Virginia in my Rhodesian lastnight while working on the kegorator's new look. Man that is some creamy smooth tobacco. I only smoked about half the bowl (it's a fairly large bowl) and I guess I had forgotten how nice that tobacco is. Did I already say smooth, oh yes. It's slightly sweet without being overpowering, just natural tobacco flavor. Now I remember why this one stuck out in my mind from so many years ago.

Ok just got home from work to check out my new pipe!
Pipesandcigars only shorted me one tin of tobacco from a five tin set. Emailed them and I guess I'll see if they make it right, how hard is it to put five tins in a box?

It may be just me, but this pipesandcigars place doesn't sound so good.

I really don't know? The quality of the tobacco appears good, they shipped it out really stinkin fast. I'm just dumbfounded that they didn't give me five tins in a five tin set. Lol how hard is that? Oh well we'll see I guess

I'm more of a cigar guy but have a pipe and smoke occasionally. This was a gift I received a few weeks ago I need to get up in the shop/mancave.

Well that makes two of us in this thread whose order they screwed up. But I will say the tobacco they sent me is exceptional. I wanted a 3.5 oz tin and got 8 oz loose leaf, the tobacco is silky smooth and just as good as I remember it when in a tin.
