    ESOTERICA TOBACCO OVERSEAS

I was wondering as Tasmania was once a part of the British Empire and being a Island Nation as is the Isle of Jersey if You could purchase these Island Products??? If not why???? You may be in for a SURPRISE in the near future!!!!!

    To my knowledge, Esoterica is a Germain line of tobacco that is specifically made for the United States market. They are not sold outside of the United States at all.

    There was a very small amount available last month, and I mean tins at only one vendor. What are you looking for?

    I saw Esoterica drop at a couple of e-tailers, and several b&ms in tins and pouches a few weeks ago.

    Short answer is no and the reason is that we only have 3 dedicated pipe tobacco retailers left in the whole of Australia and believe it or not, none in Tasmania. The three we have left stock Peterson, Samuel Gawith, Stokkebye’s, Mac Baren and a few Cornell & Diehl with the odd miscreant tins of Wessex etc. I suspect that within 5 years selling tobacco will be banned and thus it will be the death of all smoking. I have and am cellaring so that I can continue to smoke my beloved pipes until I die but once that happens I will be the last pipe smoker and like the Thylacine………….extinct.
