It's been in the cellar for half a year or longer.

    More generally, as you were asking, I always get my PH tobaccos in person from the place itself, as I travel there on each first Friday of the month, except when it collides with the nine pin bowling. I have never mail ordered from them, though it would be possible.

    It sure looks good, but there are no reviews...

    http://www.tobaccoreviews.com/blend/...em-krater-plug

    ...and now it's on my most wanted list.
    Did I hear someone call my name?

    I've just watched the first video so far, the second reviewer is extremely chatty going by reviews I have seen before, and I haven't got the patience to go through that one right now.

    The first one is very positive, here's the gist:

    First video

    Perfect

    Perfect look
    Neutral, natural smell when you sniff the plug
    Suitable for beginners, easy to cut
    Taste in smoking: medium strength, medium spice, medium sweetness
    Typical Virginia flavour with a little tickle from the Perique
    Delicious plug, warmly recommended

    Best wishes

    Edit:
    Here's the terms and conditions on the PH website. Shipping cost to the US is 29.50 Euros, but they don't ship tobacco there, at least it says so on the page. Unfortunately the text is in German: http://www.peterheinrichs.de/versand...ngsbedingungen

    Very kind of you Markus but I wasn't asking for you to get me any. I was just curious to know if there were any places like Estervals that stocked it. Perhaps it was Chris that you were referring getting some for? I know he's wanting to try some. I would offer to send him a sample but two things keep me from doing so. Shipping costs and low stock in my cellar. That's the one tobacco I have that ain't going anywhere except in my cobs, haha.

    But anyway, I was thinking of Estervals for placing a HU order next month. I'm dying to try that Krater Plug and need a few other HU blends. I thought perhaps they would have the PH blends as well but I don't see it listed there, which is why I inquired about where you EU fellows get your PH.

    Edit...btw, PH does ship to the US.

    Corndog, thanks for thinking of me, but I've discovered that I can order directly from Peter Heinrichs.

    Hello,

    I may well have mixed up who said what, same with novels, so I don't enjoy reading them :)

    My offer still stands for whoever asks. Jim suggested I bring the Curly Block to him, and if someone is interested, no prob.

    Indeed.

    I was hoping to find a place that stocks both HU and PH so I could save on the over the pond shipping fees. I need about another 500g of the Curly Block to feel good about my cellar there. I checked and to maximize the shipping charge I'd need to order at least 1 kilo. I might just do it eventually but for now - next month - I really need to stock up on a few HU blends. Now go get some of the Krater Plug and tell me how good it is.

    Hello,

    I think it's worth asking PH if they stock HU. I know that some of our group that meets there smoke it, and I seem to remember them saying they bought it there. Can't find it quickly on the website though, as the stupid search engine says HU is too short for a search term.
