    Wow! Type "pre-order" in the search bar for the entire list. No Krumble Kake though, which I have never tried and am curious about, and prices have gone up about 20% from last time. Plus, it seems that there will be a bit of a wait before they ship out. I know of at least a couple of people on here who are going to be very happy to see this.

    I don’t get it. Everything is out of stock.

    Yep. And these sell out pretty quickly. Realistically, quality tobaccos cost this kind of money in 2018. The lack of profitability in growing tobacco, leading to a decrease in growing and quality, contributed to the demise of McClelland. $18 for 2 oz is about where prices need to be.

    I'm not much of an English smoker these days and I already have enough of these. But it's nice to know that they're still in production.

    Agreed Sable. If they need to make more on each tin to keep making them, I’m all for it.

    Pre-ordered 10. I’ve never been able to find these in stock and buying on the secondary just never appealed much to me. I’m primarily a VaPer guy, and the couple dozen tins of 3 year old Elizabethan that’s Foggy was kind enough to let me purchase have been the perfect bowl with coffee. Looking forward to trying OBB when they ship!

    Only ~108 O.B.B. remaining for pre-order now. I bought 10 in case someone decides to one-shot-kill it.

    I've heard good things about Cognac and have wanted to try it for quite some time, but I was beginning to think Smoker's Haven blends were gone for good.

    I got only 3 of OBB and EM. Enough to get familiar with those blends. Too many good Latakia blends out there that cost much less.

    Too expensive, and too much Latakia for me. My wallet just breathed a sigh of relief.

    Money well spent if you favour Latakia mixtures.

    For a minute there, I was getting excited for some Krumble Kake.

    Made me look with the Krumble Kake mention, LOL. I've seen the other round tin version come back in stock as they're able to acquire them, but it's definitely been over 10 years since I've seen KK available.

    Regarding price comments, I keep a spread sheet with pricing and inventory, etc., of my cellar, and here's the little bit of history I have from previous Smokers Haven purchases:
    Exotique
    2004 - 8oz tin $26.95
    2004 - 2oz tin $15.50
    Our Best Blend
    2008 - 8oz tin $29.95
    2016 - 2oz tin $13.50
    Just sharing in case anyone was interested...sorta FYI. Anyway, is $18 high for a 2oz tin? It's relative, like anything else. The rationale I use for tin pricing is comparing the cost to a good cigar...and you get a lot more than one smoke from a tin. Don't get me wrong - I don't splurge on every tin I buy and smoke, but just saying, this doesn't strike me as highway robbery. Of course YMMV

    Thanks for the tip, Geezer! I was able to pre-order some tins. Never thought this day would come. Awesome!

    Hey Ron, I just checked to see what the pricing was on my latest sales of your blends that you listed (give or take just a few years of age but prior to the move to the High Street address).

    Here it is -

    Exotique
    2004 - 8oz tin $395
    2004 - 2oz tin $85
    Our Best Blend
    2008 - 8oz tin $425
    2016 - 2oz tin $90

    If that's just a sample of what you have, insure your cellar!

    I've never tried any of these blends so I ordered a few. Not sure how the preorder is going to work especially if there are those that put in a big order. I have spent too much money on tobacco lately to order more than 6 tins. Looking forward to trying these though.

    Very tempting

    My ex-wife told me it's either me or your pipe collection. I considered that a win-win.

    Our Best Blend

    So I guess the 8oz tin of 2004 OBB I picked up for $50 last fall was a good price.

    I ordered 2 tins of each to try--and would not have known about the pre-order deal if I hadn't read this thread. Thanks! Excited to try these hard-to-find blends!

    It is funny to read so many of you unhappy with the price of $18 dollars a tin. That would be a cheap tin in most of Europe. In Sweden, we there are no tins selling for as low as $18.
