    Has GL Pease Maltese Falcon been discontinued? So hard to find now for some reason.

    Not to my knowledge. I bought a tin a couple of months ago, but then they ran out shortly after. I'm not really sure why it's so hard to find, exactly, but there was this thread a few months or so ago:

    I bought an 8 oz tin right before it vanished. The same thing happened with Drucquer and Sons Levant Mixture and quiet nights to a much lesser extent. I have no knowledge of why but If I had to guess I'd say maybe they're having a hard time getting the required oriental Tobaccos short term. Who knows the real reason. Regardless, I look forward to them all being in stock in normal amounts because I want to stock up on all three plus Odyssey. Good luck! Also I think this is on the wrong forum.

    Thanks for the replies. I am hoping to find some Maltese falcon, so is this the wrong forum for a search for a seller ( either on or off the forum ) of this type tobacco? I am new so you might be right.

    I just picked up a tin at my B&M 2 days ago in Phoenix and it was the last tin they had. It's out there, but you do have to call around and it's not easy to find. Haven't seen it for sale online for months now. I imagine another drop will occur soon, but I don't know that. Unfortunately, once it's availalble again I believe it will sell out quickly because a lot of folks are looking for it.

    Go for it who want to try it, I will wait for end of year sales. I actually blew my 2018 budget already but if the sale is on the right stuff I will be tempted.

    If anyone has a super strong desire for 2oz tins of the 'Falcon I can probably help you out.
    Just shoot me a pm.

    Tobacco's a help because it clears the mind
    But like all your friends it is vilified
    They always say, the right amount's fine

    I picked ten tins up from P&C, but it had been backordered for months. If you don't mind waiting, I'd suggest ordering a few.

    That blend quickly became "hard to find". I love it. So glad I stocked up.

    Maltese Falcon is almost as good as Quiet Nights and Chelsea Morning. Once again, the Unicorn has struck. I'm not saying it isn't good by the way, third behind those 2 blends is still quite high in my ranking system. I think when Falcon gets a few years of aging, it has the potential to be quite awesome. The latest shipment tasted a bit young to me.

    I agree. Rest of my recent shipment went to the cellar.

    Same here, it is in the Westminster and Abingdon range for me. Not in my top 5 but smokeable for sure.

    Yeah, this last release I grabbed a couple of the 8 ounce tins. Been waiting for those to land for a while now. Going to pop one as soon as my current stockpile disappears and the other is going straight to the cellar.

    I'm bummed out. I ordered 4 big cans of Plum Pudding the day before this stuff came available. Well, at least I got a good deal at P&C...

    According to smokingpipes it's in stock. I think I might pick up another tin just to cellar it.

    Looks like SP's has currently 86 2 oz. tins and about 6 8 oz. tins, if anyone's looking for some Falcon. If not, maybe they've caught up and the run is over?
