    I came accross some three year matured on CI (P&C)'s auction site, bid on them but was thinking the tin looked a lil bit different. Here's the description:
    Back in business! 

    Just a short ten years ago, Dunhill Three Year Matured ruled the roosts of the aromatic crowd. Unfortunately, it went the way of the Dodo bird... but fret no more! Today, Dunhill Three Year Matured is back again using the original recipe that so many Dunhill lovers enjoyed. Topped with a light fruit essence to add a sweet flavor, Dunhill Three Year Matured featured red Virginias and Orientals in true British, aromatic fashion.

    What the crap? Their still selling off the last of the old blends. So far it looks like 3 yr is the only one resurrected and for sale so far. Curious what y'all think and if this is really true..

    Or maybe they just aren't selling enough $700 bowling ball bags and decided they better get back into tobacco.

    I think those re-releases were from 2017?
    Check the dates on the bottom of the tin.

    They couldn't sell the brand, the blending business, nor the licensing. I'm still skeptical, but I'm not hearing any rumors.
