now it's probably the premiere site online (and owned by Chuck and the boys at P&T) such a beautiful siight/site (double entendre intended) to see
I don't lament the rareity of some of the tobaccos, there are so many excellent choices out there - but it is nice nce in a while to bring out an old tine of some long lost blend.
for me, aside form a few special pieces (the Doby's set, some old 3 Nuns and Cope's Escudo, etc etc) I treasure the dozen or so tins of Friedman & Pease tobacco's I have left. the incarnation in the mid 90s before GLP and irwin parted ways.
but when it comes right down to it, there are tons of quality tobacco available today - so long as one isn't stuck on 1 particular blend or type :)
If you aren't grateful for what you've got, nothing that may be coming down the pike will likely do the trick for you.
