Hey, just curious, as a guy who's been on the same boat (though not with Escudo): How is your search for a suitable replacement going? Have you found it?
I've found several good blends but, nothing that even comes close to Escudo sir.

I really don't enjoy my current tin of Escudo. It's not what I'm used to. Can't really say what's wrong but it does not taste like the Escudo I love so much. It's just, well, ordinary tobacco.

I will finish this off quickly to move on to the next tin. Hopefully the next tin will bring the usual joy

SP, If I were you I'd wait awhile, a few months maybe before opening another.
I use to smoke it fresh but,after a few that were just bad I started waiting awhile and found that I didn't run into that problem or at least it wasn't as bad. The last time I had one that wasn't right I just put the lid back on and stowed it away for about 4-6 months and sure enough it was much better the second time around. Whether it has something to do with me or not I don't know for sure, I can only say what works for me.

I thank you, my bro'  :D  That is exactly what I will do. I'll finish this tin and then smoke Luxury Bulls Eye Flake when I feel like Escudo. Wait a while and try my beloved Escudo again. Maybe it's my tonguesticles that went haywire
