Bought from them for nearly 2 decades, and even with moderate price increases, I stood by their products. Their newest price hike was far too ridiculous for me to abide, however. The bulk of my spending is now Mc Clelland, C&D, and Two Friends.chasingembers,
I guess we fund the cost for the acquisition of these brands.
I'll await the more intrepid reviewers' input here when/if the products arrive.
Like who? I have never paid more than $15 for Dunhill, Pease, McClelland, or C&D tins. The only tin that I ever pay more than $20 for is the ocassional Solani Silver Flake, but ODF? Used to get those for under $13, but now $20+?The MacBaren price hike was a bit of a shock, but really it just brings them in line with other premium blenders.
I also fear that it will somehow not be the same due especially to leaf variation, Mac Baren doesn't seem to have a firm grasp yet of making blends on the more full-bodied side it seems --- hopefully the flavor will be pretty close as I'm sure they'll get all the process sheets and recipe.I'm concerned MacBaren may use they own tobaccos, and not the ones Imperial had been sourcing for those blends.
