Big HU Tobacco order

Postby steppenwolph » Fri Nov 17, 2017 1:06 am

Well, I have gone and done it. After getting a small windfall from a work bonus, I have gone and spent about $200 on tobacco. I was still feeling a little light-headed from clicking the 'send' button. And somewhat guilty, too. I'll have to be laying off anymore buying for a while. What's the most you guys have ever spent in one go? Is that a polite question? (Only answer if you feel comfortable, or if your significant other is not reading over your shoulder)
On the other hand, I am more than excited about what will be coming in the mail. After getting myself together, I emailed Hans Wiedemann of HU Tobacco fame and have purchased 8 tins of his wonderful blends. I didn't plan on getting that many at once, but, as it turns out, one tin up to eight tins ship for the same price. So I more or less had to order eight tins, otherwise my shipping would have been under-utilized. So there are 4 tins of Director's Cut, 3 tins of Balken Passion, and 1 tin of Nashville Country coming my way. I'm still feeling lightheaded.

You've chosen well, sir; Hans Wiedemann is a fantastic blender.
I place tobacco orders regularly for that sort of money, stocking up for the future. And I keep no secrets from my girlfriend :)

I think I am over my buyer's remorse and am now really looking forward to trying these new ( to me ) tobaccos. Especially Director's Cut. Having read so much about it, I'm really intrigued. Hopefully, it will all arrive late in the first week of December or there abouts. Let the waiting begin!

Hans produces some wonderful blends. I’ve not ordered any since the European regulations tightened up, but I wonder if I can try again...
Enjoy them. Great stuff.
As to amounts, probably about £100 is the maximum I’ve spent, but if I had the money I’d certainly invest in more to add to the cellar.
Great choice of tobaccos. Well done!

Around £130 a few times, when Germain's SLF was regularly out of stock in most places - when it appeared somewhere, I'd nab 10 tins before it ran out again.

Hans just emailed me a tracking number for my package! He says it usually takes two weeks for packages he mails to get from Germany to the USA. Can't wait!

My tobacco order from HU is getting closer! According to the tracking, my package is: Fr, 24.11.17 21:36 USA Die Sendung wird zur Verzollung im Zielland vorbereitet. Which according to Google translate means the package is being cleared by customs.
