With the possible exception of "Winter's Embrace" they look like aros to me.

Good for some, not for me.

YMMV


Cheers,

They may become the first tobacco I've ever bought purely for the packaging.

Got to take a sniff of all of the Four Seasons blends this past weekend and yes, all but the Winter are aromatics, but well done, mild aromatics. Also got to check out the 4 blends from the God Series: “Fujin: God of Wind”, “Raijin: God of Thunder”, “Ryujin: God of Dragon”, “Gunjin: God of Samurai”. These are all more traditional non-aro blends. All smelled delicious. I would have smoked a couple samples, but I was already 3 bowls in. Guess I'll just have to wait until I pick up some tins. I can't wait to see what the tin art on the God Series will be.

Nevermind, just found a shot from Drew Estates' site Shocked Shocked :

Wow! I LOVE the tin designs, too! Maybe they'll expand the line to VaPer flakes!

Not positive if the blender is the same Drew Estates is using or not, but the press release says that Drew Estates will be the exclusive distributor for the US and Canada:

Here's the tin art for the Four Seasons line as well, though they are available through Smokingpipes.com as well:

I'm on the notify list at Milan so I'll know when they come in. Especially since I work a block from the store. Hell, I stop in there every now and then at lunch to get supplies.

What a pity those blends are aromatics. I get tempted to order some just because of the packaging, but then again, aros are aros. They're good as long as they stay away from my pipe.

I was in there Friday and didn't see it. I spoke with the owner and she said that some tobaccos are online sales only (Penzance and Stonehaven). This must be one too.
