So, they are reintroducing some of the Dunhill blends under the Peterson moniker.
Credit to James Foster for sending this over. Pardon me if it's already been posted. I couldn't find it.

Durbar would literally by the only one I cared about. Figures.
And Peterson isn't making the Signature Flake anymore either.
They must hate me.

Yup. That jibes with what I'd heard was coming.
Who cares if there's a different name on the label. It wasn't about smoking something associated with Dunhill, right? It was about liking these particular blends and now they're back from the same maker making their same blends formerly known as Dunhill and now renamed Peterson.

Agree "sablebrush52"...Bring it out and let's start smoking!!! I am sure we shall see Dunhill and Peterson Tins side by side to compare the tobacco.

I don't care what they call the blends; just get the drilling right. Isn't this what we really care about?

You’d think places like China would still be a booming market for Dunhill as a Tobacco company. Their loss.

I guess trying to cater to high class western markets means they can’t sneak anything past the lynch mob at their front door.
And as far as the blends themselves go, I love the cut and burning characteristics of Dunhill blends and will probably keep these on my short list as long as they’re in production.

Well it says they are using original recipes. I'll be interested to read reviews from members here. In the meantime I'm smoking a lot of HU.

Original recipes indeed. Now if they could only source the tobaccos of the 60,s and older. Then they could get close to the original flavors.

I had been hoping for London mixture, but I guess I'll have to settle for nightcap. Great to see these blends making a comeback.

Well, I wish them luck but when you look at the track record of companies introducing a line of tobacco from another company I don't have much hope.

3rdguy: Wrong "Dunhill," You are mistaking "dunhill" which sells expensive, high quality leather goods and stuff with the former manufacturer of pipes and, many years ago, tobacco products, Dunhill.

I wonder what "STG is reintroducing the variants using original recipes" indicates. I understand what Warren is getting at as far as sourcing tobacco, but I"m puzzled by the ambiguity of the sentence. If they had written "using THE original recipes" I'd know what they were communicating. Does "original" mean first and earliest, or does it mean inventive and unique?

With the newly modified legislation are these going to be categorized as new blends and be victim to the May 11th deadline?

That sure sounds like longchamp, are you sure?
