    Heard today that whatever is in stores it's all there is left.
    Panic sets in.

    Just save your old tins and refill them. STG will keep making the blends, under somewhat different names.

    I can't wait for their Ruhl Yat.

    Of all the brands, plenty of cigar shops with an online presence have dunhill blends available if nothing else.

    This has been known for a long time. It appears most of the online shops of any significance are out of Dunhill Flake and have even taken it off their listing.

    I happen to enjoy the Dunhill Flake, Dark Flake and Deluxe Navy Rolls. I believed the rumors and started stocking up quite some time ago. I don't think these products are the greatest or irreplaceable but I bought enough to enjoy a few tins per year for the remainder of my life.

    I look forward to a few of the new d*nhills: the "classic rectangle," the "between 2 and 4 year virginia," the "not light rectangle," The "Can-I-Get-You-Started-With-Anything-Maybe-Drinks" tobacco . . .

    Our local b&m was at a trade show in Vegas a week or two ago and according to Brigham, there is approximately two years of stock left in Canada. Can’t comment on specific blends, just a generalization I guess.

    I heard that months ago. I grabbed a sleeve of Navy Rolls. Nothing else I can't live without.

    at $50 a tin, I'm sure there will be plenty of tins available.

    Does this include Canada's Strategic Tobacco Reserve maintained by Peck?

    Meh. Don't care.

    For reference, of course, I don't really give much of a rat's about Dunhill. It's OK, & I know a lot of folks love it. I'm just not one of them.

    Ben- You're sophisticated in tobacco trading, so why this o.p.? Sh** stirring today??

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    I confess a distinct weakness for blenders and brands who/which stay in business, produce in step with demand, and keep their distribution available to their customers. All of those are basic to any retailing. Blenders and brands who do not maintain those standards may produce, or have produced, delightful products at one time, but I'm simply not going into mourning if they no longer do so. I'm their customer, not their spouse or long-lost love.

    No panic here. Most of the Dunhill repertoire are English blends anyway.

    I did manage to obtain three tins of Nightcap (which I'm yet to try) and one of EMP. Guess it's a good thing I didn't get hooked.

    I've noticed Dunhill blends starting to disappear on retailer sites but I think the Dunhill hype has been overplayed and the stocks have quietly diminished with much less fanfare than many of us expected.

    I have had months and months to buy more Dunhill but I am honestly done. I got one sleeve of each flake and a few singles to save for future special occasions. These blends have never been essential for me, but I enjoy them.

    (I wish I had that opportunity with McClelland...)

    With that said, I welcome Orlik production of Dunhill copycat blends if that is what it takes to see these blends survive in some form! As a brand, Dunhill tobacco is worth more than the sum of its parts.

    3 pounds of Nightcap, and 3 pounds of EMP, other blends by Dunhill are just meh to me. I know there are matches for these, and while they are good in their own right, not quite the same. I'm refusing to jump on the Stock Up Hype! for all the different blends as I am fairly certain, based on my limited and utterly non-professional experience, that someone else will be blending them.

    Started pipe smoking recently...heard about this Dunhill thing...bought and loved Dunhill Nightcap...started to freak out about not being able to get "my favorite." But then I had Quiet Nights...then I had Mississippi River & Plum Pudding...etc. Not as concerned about Dunhill anymore.

    Once it's gone... it won't be gone. Its not being discontinued, it's just not being distributed to the USA anymore. If you really want some Dunhill after "it's gone" then just buy it from a European retailer such as the Danish Pipe Shop.

    I stocked up years ago on Dunhill Flake and Deluxe Navy Rolls. Their closing will not impact me but I am still sad that a name with that kind of history is calling it quits.

    No reason. I happened to talk to one of the retailers about getting some Margate and he told me that he can't get Dunhill anymore.

    Apparently the Canadian distributor is Brigham enterprises. Our local b&m has plenty of Dunhill at $42 - $45 Canadian a tin

    I stockpiled EMP......until I discovered G.L. Pease Chelsea Morning. Anybody in the market?

    I cellared deep a few years ago when PC had a great sale on. I have enough Flake, Dark Flake, & Navy Rolls to last at least two generations.

    I'll miss Dunhill. Even though better blends are currently on the market, and even though the "Dunhill" brand has for some time merely been a label, the brand's image is one that creates a sense of historical continuity and embodies the subtle elegance of pipe smoking. While it's true that we smoke tobacco, not tins, I will miss the Nightcap tin art depicting a classic clay pipe, a candle, and a night cap, and the description of "a rich flavoured smoking mixture for the evening with its period of relaxation and leisure."

    Over the past month or so I've grabbed a few pounds of dark flake. Even went out on a limb and picked up a pound of Royal Yacht after a quick sampling. I'm pretty sure my Dunhill purchases are finished.

    I have around 50 tins of Dark Flake and around 30 or more tins each of Flake and Deluxe Navy Rolls. Should be adequate for my needs.
