I stopped by a tobacco store I frequent in Kentucky today and they got their first delivery of Cope WG. It comes in the traditional cardboard tins. My first impression was that it was slightly sweeter than most wintergreens I've had and almost reminded me of a mouthful of the Chicklet gum with a bit of a minty taste. (this dip doesn't get hard after 5 minutes, though!) Very good dip and recommended at least to try. I did find it interesting that the bottom of the tin stated a Sell By Date instead of the Born On date that I remember, or am I crazy? My tin said Nov. 29, 09. From this, I can figure that this tin was probably packed a few days ago and Copenhagen is judging their cardboard packed tins have a shelf life of roughly 1 month. I'm interested to here others opinions.
