Since STG had already been doing the blending on the Dunhill, I'm *hoping* that the recipes aren't changing.
We'll know soon enough.

I only really liked Elizabethan and I've got enough of that one left to last until I'm reduced to fine white ash.

That sure sounds like longchamp, are you sure?
Longchamp is a small, family owned French company. dunhill (lower case dee)is a brand owned by "Richemont Group", a large, also family owned, Swiss conglomerate. I doubt Longchamp is even a blip on Richemont's radar. Piaget, Mont Blanc, Purdy, Cartier and many other brands are under the Richemont umbrella of ownership. I believe Richemont is, by far, the largest of the luxury brand holding companies.

This sounds epic. I never really tried dunhill tobacco's, simply because I only like Burley. But if I had to guess, this would be a great company to take over.

Wow! Glad to hear they are coming back. I got into pipe smoking just after they stopped, so I have only tried a few dunhill blends. Excited to try some others, hopefully at a reasonable cost.

I'm glad they're, mostly, back. Navy Rolls was a favorite and I enjoyed Early Morning, Nightcap and Flake.

Without the word “Dunhill” on the label it’ll never taste the same. The 2018 Dunhills, now those were tobacco. Same manufacturer with the same recipes and same leaf sources couldn’t possibly be the same. The slightly different tin art ruins the blend. Get out of my yard, mehhhhh!
Happy to hear the fans of the blends can continue to get them.

It's a great question...

They'd be shortsighted to make them out to be anything other than a re-labeling of the very same blend they've been producing for Dunhill. Both for customer acceptance and to avoid FDA "testing" and the large fees for that.

Label changes for Christmas Cheer made them susceptible for FDA scrutiny. Would this not be the same?

Do we really know the extent of the FDA's intent and the McClellands' posture when contacted- indeed, were they contacted or was it just a concern?
Anyway, we'll find out in a few years I guess!

Short answer, yes. Longer answer, since the Dunhill branded blends left the US market around July of 2008 and were gone for a considerable time while Orlik and STC arranged for a new US distributor, they were never eligible to be grandfathered in. Nothing has actually changed in that regard.

Ah, so their possible demise was coming even prior to Peterson picking them up.

Peterson didn't pick them up. STG owns the Peterson name for tobaccos and assigned the resumption of production of the former "Dunhill" blends as part of its Peterson offerings.
