    Following a discussion in the PM Facebook group about Peterson tobaccos no longer being sold in Ireland, I went looking at e-tailers. I was seeing "No longer available" notices on many, including my beloved Old Dublin. I did some rather frantic searching - I do not smoke a lot of OD, but it is a favorite - I was able to secure several tins.
    Does anyone have any solid information on these blends?

    I don't know. Something came up in this thread regarding Peterson Perfect Plug (near the end of the thread) and whether it is still be produced: cutting-thin-flake-slices-from-plugs-impossible

    I get all my pipe and tobacco news exclusively from this forum, and I haven't heard anything.

    As far as I know, they are not being discontinued. They will no longer be available in some areas though, and some of their less sold blends might be put out of production. This info comes from The Danish Pipeshop where I purchase most of my tobacco, and Peterson will no longer be available there. So no more for me, alas, although it's not that much of a loss. I'll miss the Perfect Plug. Some of their blends can be found with different names in the Rattray's line.

    Smoking is one of the leading causes of all statistics.

    What I am going to say is all just my thoughts from what I have read and the facts from the sale of Peterson

    Peterson of Dublin was sold. When the sale happened, The Laudsi (sp) Group purchased the pipes and name and STG acquired the tobaccos.

    STG announced that they would be trimming the number of tobaccos produced down to 7 or 9 or something along those lines.

    (here is where I'm totally guessing on what is happening)

    I would guess that STG is letting the old Peterson of Dublin tins of tobacco purge from the market. They are probably working on re-branding the labels and gearing up for a re-release of them to the market. Now, in the original press release I read, 3P's was going to be cut from production, but now people are saying that it will still be produced.


    So you say you can drink? Well, I'm from Wisconsin. Try to keep up.

    Everytime I go to a new shop I ask for Peterson’ 3p’s. I’ve visited about 8 shops last year and have one tin...

    I am getting the same...no longer available...only on a few blends though.I wonder if they are doing away with just some,or eventually all.

    Rumor is that STG/Lane, the manufacturer, will also be picking up the distribution of Peterson Tobacco at some point. No word on when.

    Sad news. Hope they don’t disappear and also hope the recipes aren’t altered too much. Peterson has some rock solid blends

    I'm quite fond of Hyde Park. At some point it was made by G+H.
