I arrived back in Mexico City to find a box waiting for me. I spent the summer up in the US so this one had been waiting a while here. Let me tell you the surprise I had upon opening it!! I first saw the note that read: "Now you can say youve tried some 5 plus-year-old tobaccos..." Shocked

Our own Natch took the time to send me these samples. Included are a sample from as early as 1992 and a whole range of stuff that isnt even available any longer!! I was speechless! Im almost afraid to try the stuff as stuff with this kind of age on it makes it quite rare. I will, however, get over this quickly I think!! LOL

My quandry at this point is to find the suitable pipes to try them in. I will also give periodic updates as I work (enjoy is a better word methinks) my way through these.

Again thank you so much Natch, as always, you da man!!! cheers cheers cheers

Natch is one of the all-time greats.

Somewhere, Ken is drinking coffee with Alfred Dunhill and John Middleton, and smiling when he sees packages like that one get opened.

I've traded with Natch before and he's very generous. The man has some tobacco. Way to go on landing the sampler box MisterE. I hope you enjoy it.
Cheers,

you're no slouch either Frost. You are singlehandedly responsible for beginning my education in Burley. Thanks again brother!

Killer bomb, and a nice deposit in the karma bank, I'm guessing!
And the recipient is a pretty decent fellow too, as we all know!
