    I noticed that my Margate tins read as "Blended exclusively for Butera Pipe Company..."

    The rest of the Esoterica blends in tin read "Blended exclusively for Arango Cigar..."

    So does Mike just have connection to the Margate nowadays? I knew he sold them off some years ago..

    Just curious!

    Mike Butera sold the pipe tobacco, cigars and leather accessories to Mike Gold of Arango years ago.

    I think all the different blends’ tin and pouch labeling said Blended Exclusively for Butera Pipe Company until a changeover in the wake of the Dec 2008 sale to Arango

    Remember, this is the same company that just blacked out "Made in Denmark" on Pelican labels rather than printing new ones. And whose BK Flake still has labels that say "kenyucky" among other errors, after 2 years.

    I thought that was an in-house review of the blend.

    I don't think that's an error.
