After reading the thread about Cavendish shave soaps, I decided to follow up on Johnny's post. So I ordered a 1oz. package of Captain Black Pipe Tobacco - Regular. (I didn't want the Cherry Cavendish). 
I took my puck of MWF (90% remaining) and vacuum-sealed it with the tobacco. I plan on my first shave with the infused puck on Tobacco-Tuesday, June 30. Stay tuned for my report.

Update:
I decided to take Balaji's suggestion of shredding the puck, but chose to cut the puck only in two pieces:

Then I packed the inside with tobacco and reassembled the puck a la Oreo Cookie...

Then bagged the puck in the tobacco pouch and into my vacuum sealer:

Off to storage for 90 days.

Oh my, "JFJ" Smile

I sure hope it works for you.  If it does you should market it and when you sell someone a sealed pack, include a corncob pipe.

Hi Celestino,
I could have, but I wasn't reaching for the MWF lately and I thought this would be an interesting experiment.

Sounds awesome! I wonder if you shredded the puck and mixed all the ingredients before vacuum sealing would help enhance the scent even more. looking forward to the end result.

I can only imagine that separating the tobacco from the shredded soap would be a nightmare!  Eyepop

You going to smoke the tobacco after this? MWF infused pipe tobacco should give you a unique smoking experience Dodgy

I would if I weren't already a non-smoker.
To Balaji, if you were to cut the puck into two pieces, horizontally, then packing the tobacco in layers, separating the tobacco wouldn't be an issue. I am going to do it right now.
