Funny, I was thinking the same thing! Now if the USD/CAD exchange rate could sort itself out a bit, I could convince the Mrs that a cross-border shopping trip is good for both of us!

I've given this thread some little consideration and really don't have a definitive answer as to the most over rated 'baccy.

I suppose like many, the hype/lack of availability on certain blends like some of the Esoterica line (Penzance and Stonehaven to name a few), plus FVF a few yrs ago might flirt with this syndrome. And I've had all the aforementioned and find them to be just fine in their own ways. Holy grail? Not for me, but there probably will never be.

At the end of the day it's all about what you like and can afford. So I don't chase anything that isn't available for reasonable prices which I can also afford and which I already enjoy. Isn't that the same way with everyone?

So I guess I don't really have an answer!


scratch



Cheers,

RR

People make the hype, either it be a few that from there own point of view think there great tobaccos to just the thought
of a blend not being available anymore creates hoopla. Early on I made the mistake of listening to others about how great a tobacco blend was that now I have pounds of that I hope someday will become smokable to me. Granted, we all like to advertise how much we like something and it always seems we take for granted that others will like it as much as we do, sadly it's not always the case.Nowadays I do my own research by reading what the manufacture states is in the blend and sometimes getting a small sample from a retailer or a friend to try before spending my hard earned money. Knowing what you like in a blend and what you don't like is most important.
I here a lot about Revo Plug lately, it's hard to get here and I'm not spending anything on it till I know I'll like it enough to pay
the Euro prices and at that I'll only purchase a small amount to savor from time to time. One has got to be wise when considering new blends nowadays and not to listen to others, there's no guarantee that just because they like it that you will. We may be created equally but, our taste buds are certainly different. Wink

Yea, it would help making the order even bigger! I could place another scandalous order at smokingpipes or 4noggins as well.
I definitively miss 2007, when our dollar was worth 1,10 USD. Now that was cool. Cool

FVF.......I had to use fire lighters to get it burning.

I have 6 years old Penzance which is not to bad but, won't buy it again. To expensive.

Definitely the Esotericas, though I do like And So To Bed and Pembroke, but won't pay a premium for them, and won't shed a tear if I can't get them.
