Here's Santa's payload from this afternoon:



A LOT of this is very well-aged stuff...ALL of it is either a much-loved blend of mine, or one that I've had at the top of the list of things to try for a while now.

100g McClelland Virgina Woods (1999!)
100g Chicago 2009 Limited/Numbered Sam Gawith Scotch Cut Mixture
100g Rattray's Hal O' The Wynd
3.5 oz MacBaren Virginia No. 1 (2004)
2oz GLP Odyssey (2005)
2oz GLP Blackpoint (hard to make out, but either '05 or '06)
50g McClelland Dark Star (2006)
50g CoJ No. 4 Pure Virginia Flake
50g Wessex Burley Slice (2005)
2oz C&D Luigi Radice (part of the new Scuderia series)
1 Tin of Old Mill Evangeline snuff


Unbelievable.

For now, I've got a hankerin' for burley, and I don't have any open...so I think I'm gonna go ahead and tuck into the Wessex while I get the rest logged into the cellar and find a place for it all.

Santa stopped by while I was at work, and I came home to a wonderful surprise


The Jolly Old Elf must be a mind reader! Just last night I was thinking that I hadn't smoked anything from Rattray's in a while and that I would have to add a tin to my next order.

Rattray's 100 g Tins:
Old Gowrie
Marlin Flake
Hal O' the Wynd
Red Rapparee
And a 50 g tin of 2008 McCranies Red Ribbon

Fantastic job Santa! Thank you! And many thanks to Carlos for keeping the Secret Santa going!
Mike.

Looks like we are waiting to hear from five of you on receiving.  Some are in Santa's sleigh.  Tslot's is in the bushes next to the porch I think.  Or was that the front desk?  Someplace nearby.  I have not heard from two of you on having shipped yet.  Hopefully all are on the way or delivered.


Santa is full of surprises!  Ho Ho ho!  :santa: :rendeer: :rendeer: :rendeer: :rendeer: :rendeer: :rendeer: :rendeer: :rendeer:

Ok.  We are down to just a handful.  One due to be delivered Thursday.  One already delivered.  And a few PM's sent.  I had to delete more messages in my PM boxes.  Amazing how Sent boxes and Inboxes fill up so fast.

Ho Ho Ho!  :santa: :rendeer: :rendeer: :rendeer: :rendeer: :rendeer: :rendeer: :rendeer: :rendeer: :rendeer:

Ok!  Just like that we are down to two waiting.  One scheduled for Thursday.  One PM waiting to be answered.  A few of you to post pics when you get the chance.  That Jolly old Santa is busy busy!

Yup, the delivery elf was chatting up our cute receptionist yesterday when he dropped off the package.  
I had the day off so I didn't receive until today.   Thanks Santa!

Way to go Santa!  I did not know that some of you guys were so into snuff.

Brothers and Sisters,

Nismo270r was my Santa. Who knew St. Nick was a Kentuckian and a battle buddy!?

Stay tuned for pics of what he gifted me!

In the Christmas Spirit,
Matt

Last two both scheduled for a Thursday delivery.  So keep a sharp eye out as Santa wings his way past.

Dang! Santa musta hit the coffee early this morning to be delivering already. Nice selection of tabacs! And more Snuff. Apparently the use of snuff is increasing. I will admit that my first try since high school was pretty remarkable. Maybe I am just now old enough to appreciate it.

keep up the good work Santa! If I am right, one more to go. Ho Ho Ho! :santa: :rendeer: :rendeer: :rendeer: :rendeer: :rendeer: :geek: :rendeer: :rendeer: :rendeer:
