    Thanks! I will add it to my pipe tobacco collection since it seems to remind me the taste of a good cigar.

    I would start with English or Oriental style tobaccos. I started with the OTC Aromatics back in the early 70's and almost burned my mouth out and was going to quit pipes all together untill I found out about the English Style of tobaccos. Try Penzance!!!!

    A good start for available tobac that's English style would be Sam Gawith Skiff.

    I am just getting deeper and deeper to pipes as well as cigars and found good tobaccos like Penzance, Westminster, Gaslight, etc!! I heard that Esoterica Tobacciana is one of the tobaccos that are most difficult to find (Same goes on Cuban cigars such as Saint Luis Rey, La Gloria Cubana, 898 of Partagas and so on), any good idea to source them?

    I just off the Boveda pack from the list and wonder the pipe tobacco storage in mason jars. Also, what do I have to do when I open the mason jar with tobacco after several years (I do not smoke a lot so do not know what to do)??

    I buy individual 50g tins that I want to age and just leave them unopened in the tin. When I want to smoke it, I usually then transfer the tobacco into a small Mason jar just to keep it from drying out while it's in my rotation.

    Thanks!! For mason jars, I think I would use Ball Collection Elite Wide Mouth Half-Pint and wonder will 50g~2oz tin pipe tobacco fit into this jar (Flake, Plug, etc)?

    That's a deep dark secret and nobody in the club can speak of it.

    Just kidding. Most of the online pipe and tobacco shops have an email notification system that alerts you when something comes in stock. But depending on the popularity of the brand, and Esoterica is high on the list, you still need a quick trigger finger to get them. If you miss out, just get back on the list and hope for better luck next time. What also works well and maybe even better depending on what part of the world you're in is to visit a real brick and mortar pipe shop. Call or better yet pay 'em a visit, you never know what you're going to find. Luck and persistence pays off, whether or not the tobacco lives up to the hype only you can decide.
