Well, I was sent a comfirmation e-mail by Windy City Cigars saying my Balkan Sobranie order would be processed. Now, I understand, via telephone, that my order has been cancelled, and they have removed the product from their website. I think I'll not bother with them again.

Windy City is NOT WATCH City - But wait til JR reads this from their homepage: "WindyCityCigars.com is the biggest online cigar store in the U.S.A. We carry the best collection of cigars at the best prices."

Agreed. But I thought I'd let people know what happened to me. In fact, I'm learning other people faced the same problem with Windy City that I did. The lady I spoke with is inefficient and clueless.

Every time I get this update, I hope to all that is dear Penzance, Stonehaven, Margate, and/or Peacehaven are back in stock. I've yet to get my hands on any of the above for sometime because this stuff is hoarded to the greatest degree possible.  

It's never going to be "in stock" at the prices they are selling it for.  It sells out before you can reach for your wallet. Just a fact of life and market conditions.  I don't really care; they're not the only game in town.

I agree. It's simple supply and demand economics. The demand is high, so prices should increase. Since they don't increase at retailers, they sell out fast and the eBay prices actually reflect true market value. At the same time, people get upset when a merchant raises prices on one of these. You can't have it both ways. Sometimes it seems as if we hate big government when it put restrictions/taxes on smoking, but we want them to fix retail tobacco prices so they can't increase with market demand. [/rant]

So I see that PipeAndLeaf.com has Balkan Sobranie 50g in-stock. Just got an email that they also had Penzance but the site already says they are sold out. Crazy how fast this stuff is disappearing.

The Pipe Guys have Vincent Manil's La Brumeuse.

For those that are unaware, it's fairly rare and the Pipe Guys is the only American tobacco retailer (that I know) that carry it. I'm not sure how much they have but you can only order 1 per.

I received a brick of Vincent Manil La Brumeuse Semois Thick Cut from the Pipe Guys a few days ago. It's not what I expected. It's a fairly dry ribbon cut that burns quickly -- best to pack it tightly and sip it slowly. It's rather unique -- best described as "burley-like," and I enjoy it.

Is it worth $30 (including shipping) for a 100 gram brick? I think so.

The good thing about it is it is basically 2x the tobacco of any other 100g tin because of its lack of moisture. Basically, it is 4 50g tins. I think it is more than worth it, even if to just try.

Agreed. The 100 gram brick of this Semois filled 3 half-pint mason jars with enough left over for a few bowls to smoke right away.

I'm trying my hardest to get a layover in Belgium when we head back to the States in May so I can visit Vincent.

I think Windy City has Campaign. They tried to get me to take some (sort of...long story) when they crossed the streams on my order and another guy's.

I did get end up with a halfer of Blackpool though. Good price.


What I'm really looking for is Dunbar and/or Dorchester.

So...who was lucky enough to get Stonehaven? I had about 4 ounces of it once and have yet to get my hands on any in two years.

This is happening. Pick up a few tins if you can. ~$5 for quality tobacco? Oh yeah.

I enjoyed the one tin of Sasieni that I locally bought many months ago. I figured I'd buy some more at a discount and pick up a few John Patton blends to try while I was at it (8 oz. each of Storm Front, Cool Hand Fluke, and Oriental Dusk).
