    I'm going to Malta in May. Shot in the dark maybe, but I wonder if anyone knows of tobacco shops and/or tobaccos I might look for either there or at Heathrow Duty Free on my return flight.

    TIA

    A friend of mine just came back from Ireland and said all the tobacco had been taken out of the duty free store in Dublin.

    I emailed one of the tobacconists in Malta to inquire what brands they stock.

    One he mentioned was Rattray's. It seems our US webtailers are OOS on almost all blends. Is that typically hard to find here, and something I should pick up?

    Well, it really depends on YOUR tastes, but some very good tobaccos in those lists!

    Seems like a good sample from everything offered in Europe :).
    I don't see Mac Baren and Peterson though, Capstan either.

    On recommendations - I guess it depends if you are seeking blends that you can't usually buy in the States or just looking to buy whatever is good.

    Got back from my trip yesterday. I was able to pick up a few things from my wish list.

    Rattray Old Gowrie
    Rattray Red Rapparee
    Gawith Best Brown Flake
    Gawith St James Flake
    Gawith Chocolate Flake

    They also had some remaining Dunhill stock.
    Mixture 965
    Royal Yacht
    Aperitif
    Nightcap

    A pleasant experience, and I had no trouble bringing them back thru customs.

    I think you will be happy with those blends you selected. At least for me they were all wonderful blends.
