    Thanks for the update John. This is big news. John Cotton Smyrna is one of my favorite blends. I was worried I needed more in the cellar, but this makes me reassured it will not be on the chopping block anytime soon.

    Amazing what can come of a drunken night in a sushi restaurant. Congratulations!

    Wouldn't it be funny if we saw Murray's made Dunhill clones.

    Letting the guys in Bethlehem take over will be good for Standard. Personally I am looking forward to going to a pipe show and walking into a mens room without everyone turning round and saying 'Hi Simon' and my shoes getting soaked! Actually this development allows for survivability of the blends and their continuation along with the revival of a few new ones. As part of the change we are also diversifying into the vape market with a scientific team to introduce a new and exciting patented vape device that is radically different from currently available vape platforms. The company will be changing its name to The Standard Vape Corporation so wish us luck gentlemen!

    Is this an April Fool's joke? It's very, very plausible, but the announcement being made today... seems a bit sketchy.

    Good news, I absolutely love the current Bengal Slices, I stocked up on a bunch recently but it’s good to hear it has a more secure future. Congratulations!

    It might just explain why we protected our trade mark tin art so aggressively!

    Does this news mean that there's a chance that Revor Plug might become available here in the states?

    ^^ That will be the day! For now I’m holding on to the Plugs that I have and enjoying them sparingly. In the meantime, I still can’t tell the difference between McConnell’s Latakia Flake and Revor Plug.

    On subject, does this mean the Standard Tobacco brand will be produced in the mega Scandinavian warehouse? If that we’re the case, you all might have an the option of making a whole leaf plug tobacco? Can y’all bring back Velvan Plug? Those Danes were producing it in the end so it shouldn’t be hard to get the recipe from them, bringing back Erinmore Plug would also be nice but I’m really just dreaming out loud here. Basically all ya’d have to do is swap some 3P’s and change the top dressing and voila, you have Velvan, do it again and whamo, you have Erinmore Plug!

    @hawky454 - A man can dream. I do enjoy my Revor Plug sparingly as well and substitute McConnell's Lat Flake every other time I have the urge to smoke the great plug. I was lucky to find some Velvan Plug on a trip to Ireland last summer and picked up a few pouches. Haven't yet tried it and am in no rush to - for now anyway. Just happy to know it's in the cellar.

    Keep your eyes open for new additions to some of the SToP product lines in the coming months.

    Ok, so they just sold the blends that they currently have been making, but not the whole company. Cool! Can you give us a hint, Russ?

    Great news! Thanks, gentlemen.

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.
