Right on cue. Did you use a timing fuse on this one? So my freebies are now on hand and I got a swell extra to say the least. Through the kindness of GrampaGrossbart I was blessed with my freebies and a hunted tobacco I've yet to try in exchange for, essentially, the hassle of having to send it to me. Too kind, it will be remembered.

The box has arrived to me and will go back out tomorrow to Dover.

I am making my selections currently and when I am finished I will post.

Edit: or maybe Monday it will go out. Depends on timing and children's activities.

Glad it hit the target, brother! And since you've never sampled that stony goodness before, I feel obliged to mention that the pouch that came from was kinda jacked up. It looked fine from the outside, but the flakes themselves were mashed beyond recognition. I've only cracked a few in my day but they've always been in decent long flakes, if a little sticky, but this stuff came out in clumps, more of a broken flake than the old, bacon-y ones. Hope it was a one off and not a change in production style...the silver lining is that it still tastes great, so enjoy!

VA/Per blends are typically a good thing. Just found a bag of Cool Hand Fluke while cleaning up here...bonus time!

Wow! Just got a box containing half a dozen really fine cigars from a gent in the pass here. Unnecessary, of course, but appreciated. Couple of my favorite brands in there too...sweet!

I had many of these blends already so I grabbed two that I have never tried. I took the Peretti's Oriental and the C&D Kajun Kake. I hope to use the Peretti's Oriental in a few blends to give them some "oomph" on the Oriental end of the spectrum.

Very nice indeed. Many thanks!


And I'd like to take a moment to step forward, on behalf of the handsome and studly pass crew here, to offer a special holiday trio to one Puros Bran...who predicted that the Pass would end up returning a few dried shreds at the end of the day.

Yeah, all that Tambolaka I put in means you're getting a whole heck of a lot of dried shreds, not just a few! Fa fa fa!

But for serious, thanks to all my fellow boxers, and of course our fearless coach, Blackhorse!

Of course, the thing about prohibiting Latakia blends was ignored by some...so maybe I'll send those along to PeeBee as a little ho, ho, ho thing. santa

The hallowed (not 'hollowed') box has arrived from wence it began.

Many thanks to all those who labored on its behalf.

Family events preclude my opening and exploring it tonight...but soon.
