"The finest example of home-grown Old Toby to be discovered outside the Shire. Carefully spiced with fragrant Longbottom Leaf and cask aged for a very long time. Fill your pipes and light up. And then for a little while we can present than we are all back safe at Bree again..." -Meriadoc Brandybuck

Discovered in the McClelland factory and packed exclusively for the NASPC.

Notes: Limited offering only available at the 1998 NASPC.

The tin also reads: "Our special thanks to the family of J.R.R. Tolkien for their cooperation in this project, and to the N.A.S.P.C. artist who has captured Tobald Hornblower, the creator of Pipe-weed.

I am glad the sample I smoked of Old Toby was given to me by a friend. I'd never open one of my own tins (if I had one), because of their rarity and prices that they command (now about $150 a tin).

A very nicely put together (are not all Pease blends nicely put together?) blend of fragrant Orientals combined with very nicely aged Virginia and a good helping of Latakia. Smooth as silk an I can see why it was a favorite down in the Shire.
