    At regular retail even.

    Good looking out.
    Grabbed a dozen FMC, which was the only blend I really wanted more of.
    Now I'm good for a little while at least.

    FM On the Town already sold out as well as the Tawney Flake. Hopefully the rest stick around for at least a few days but we'll see.

    I was wondering how long that would take to show back up.

    That, or they just want to get it over and done with.

    The Balkan Blue sold out about a minute after I paid for my order. Assuming it went through, I plan to charge $5000 a tin for it on eBay because I want to give back to the community.

    Correct. They declined to give you information that would have led to a maddened hoard hounding the shit out of them and pinging their server mercilessly, while tipping off more speculators and screwing more regulars. Yep, hell of a way to run a business.

    Ben88, they did not lie. They told you yesterday they weren't getting anymore shipments and that was the truth because they got the shipment Monday. I knew it was coming since Friday but didn't want to say anything here and stir up the panic even further.

    That is what I was going to say...I bet they already had the shipment when they told you that. I see P&C didn't get anything. Was SP the only online store to get a shipment?

    Before I was able to submit my order, the Balkan Blue sold out. I did manage to snag a few tins of Cellar. I really would have loved to get a tin or two of OTT, but that was sold out as well

    We feel like we’ve been transparent about the fact that we would be getting one last shipment from McClelland, as others have noted on this forum, and we’ve gone so far as pulling down all listings except for the ones we expected to have back in. However, it sounds like there was some miscommunication on our part. I apologise, and would love the opportunity to discuss it further. DM me and we can sort it out.

    You guys are awesome! Thanks for caring about your customers.

    Now what can we do about that pesky rep you have in AZ that is causing me to have to pay sales tax when I order online

    Your reply reminded me of something my OAFW would say. She just retired from the bar after 40 years of practice. When we're discussing something that touches on legal matters she will lecture me on the legal principles involved. I retaliate by lecturing her on Barling history.

    If SPC did not wanted to disclose any information, the answer would be - we don't know, just keep checking out website and/or sign up for email notification.

    Thanks for the heads up. I added 5 tins FMC to a order I was ready to place for a couple of my Dunhill favs. Dunhill fans should be buying I think, Dark Flake very difficult to find right now. Perhaps there will be more Dunhill shipments, perhaps not. Just to be safe, I'm assuming not and have stocked up accordingly. I'm not a huge Dunhill fan but do like their Flake, Dark Flake and Navy Rolls. I think their Navy Rolls are as good a VaPer flake as there is, especially if you prefer a more subtle, sweet Perique hit.

    I picked up a handful of Frog Morton original 100g tins. It's one of the first blends I smoked when I picked up the pipe again years ago, although I haven't smoked it much the past couple of years. Well, it was FMATP, but I've since taken up with the original as well.

    What's Grey Havens like? Nice tin art and I see it's also from the Craftsbury series, but I've never tried it.

    New Century's a fine lighter Balkan. Hopefully everyone who wanted a tin, got a tin.

    I've read decent reviews but I've never had it. A few folks mentioned it is similar to FMOTT with the Basma but less sweet. We'll see.
    I may trade some off but 10 small tins is just over a pound. I'll open one right away and see if I fall in love with the stuff. I do like my oriental blends.

    I knew SPC was getting a shipment Monday. When they reduced their McC tins from 70+ down to 14 over the weekend, I figured those 14 were on their way, so I read up on the ones I didn't already have and liked what I read on New Century.

    Thanks for the heads up, I got 2 tins of FMC. Would loved to have ordered more but if the customs department here in Aus got hold of say 15 tins (which would be the real number I wanted), I would have had to mortgage the house to pay the ransom to get them released out of customs....

    Yes, I bought large back when Foggy was selling out. But the stuff that I got from him said "Bacon Extra" and instead of a whale, there's a picture of a pig. Do you think it's fake? It tastes nice and smokey, but there's bit's of rind in the dottle.

    It would be cool if SP put all the tin pics and descriptions back up as a tribute. I miss seeing them there already! =(

    That's a really good point. All of the customer written reviews for these blends are now dark at Smoking Pipes.

    Fortunately there's still TR for that, but SP had the best tin pics and format with which to look at them!
