Default Most Expensive Pipe Tobaccos

Well, most expensive on pipesandcigars.com.

So I was poking my way through the inner nets and looking around for a really expensive blend to try out. I was surprised to find that most blends were around $10 for a 50oz tin, about 1.75 or 1.76 ounces. They really ranged from $8 to $12. Well that got me wondering, as I lit up my first bowl of McConnell's Scottish Cake, what the most expensive pipe tobaccos in the world are. Couldn't find a list online so I compiled one myself.

Now, being a newbie pipe smoker, this raised some questions that I will head over to the "Ask an Old Fart" thread and ask now. However, here is my initial observation: The most expensive pipe tobacco in the world costs $14.33 for a 50g tin. A bowl is between 3 and 5 grams. Therefore, each tin will give between 10 and 17 bowls. Each of those bowls cost $.86 to $1.43. Therefore, to smoke the Pipe Equivalent of a Padron Anniversary 1926 80 Years or Opus X would be like smoking those for less than a buck a stick to a buck forty-three a stick. And my friends wonder why one of my New Year's Resolutions was "Smoke more pipe." They wonder this while I share my pipe tobacco with them and they jealously guard their cigars.

Head north of the border if you want an expensive blend. Last tin I bought at a B$M here was Dunhill London Mixture and it cost me $26. And that was a few years ago.

Quoted for truth. Pipe tobacco is damn expensive here. Actually it has gone up. Last tin I bought was like 30 something bucks I believe, and the owner of the tobacco store said that is a good price for a tin!

Rejoice and purchase while you can. Before long, pipe tobacco will be taxed the same as cigarette tobacco. Then you will see those $26 Dunhill's in the states.

Wait until you get into the vintage tobacco market....
But, even vintage tins are still a bargin compared to the rare and vintage cigar market.

Compton's, available from Maxime Engel, the business owner and blender, is ~$40.00/100 g.

Available @ pipes2smoke.com.

I've not smoked any, but those who have say it's worth every penny.
