Thanks for the input chaps. I've compiled a few baccys that look like good contenders for a group buy/sample pack of decent quality tinned/pre-packed stuff:

Condor Ready Rubbed - http://www.tobaccoreviews.com/blend/1103/gallaher-limited-condor-ready-rubbed-green
Mac Baren HH Old Dark Fired Flake - http://www.tobaccoreviews.com/blend/5214/mac-baren-hh-old-dark-fired
Samuel Gawith St James Flake - http://www.tobaccoreviews.com/blend/2674/samuel-gawith-st-james-flake
Ashton Artisans Blend - http://www.tobaccoreviews.com/blend/2534/ashton-artisans-blend
Samuel Gawith Skiff Mixture - http://www.tobaccoreviews.com/blend/1033/samuel-gawith-skiff-mixture


Condor is a Virginia, aromatic tobacco (Alcohol / Liquor, Floral Essences). A classic Lakeland style over the counter tobacco, seems to be loved by many and probably a very recognisable smell in the UK back in the day!

Mac Baren HH Old dark fired flake is a Virginia/Burley mix, no flavourings added - great reviews

Samuel Gawith St James Flake is a Virginia/Perique mix (a VaPer) - great reviews

Ashton Artisans Blend is an English style with Black Cavendish, Latakia, Oriental/Turkish, Perique and Virginia. I found this when looking for an alternative to Dunhill Nightcap - it gets cracking reviews.

Samuel Gawith Skiff Mixture came up in my search for a better alternative to Dunhill Early Morning pipe (an Oriental), this gets great reviews. Contains Latakia, Oriental/Turkish and Virginia

I chose all the above after quite a bit of research - I wanted to compile a decent selection that contained different types of tobaccos, and selected only ones that scored highly on tobaccoreviews.com (both by score and as user favourites).

Anyone interested in splitting on it five ways? 10g of each (50g total)? Cost is probably going to be about £17-18 posted. I've asked a mod if I can do a group buy thing, still waiting to hear back, but if it's ok with them then i'll stick it in the group buy section with a cost. I've got some food grade ziplock bags on the way :)

If there is any more interest, and any others that people wish to try, maybe we could expand it a bit. Open to suggestions!
