Probably this. It's not like the FDA fees are that large, evidently around $3000 per blend. Once they've sold a couple of thousand tins per blend that cost will go away. Or, they may decide to do what others are doing and focus on the Asian market.Some of us predicted this would happen.
I now posit that these "STG-Peterson-Dunhill" blends will NOT disappear a year from now. Either STG has figured out a way to get around the deeming costs, or is prepared to eat them having sharp pencilled the cost versus future profit.
Compare what? STG is simply restarting the same production line they stopped. Same equipment, same components, same processing. The only thing different will be the name on the tin. Ahhh, but what's in a name?You’ll have to post a thread on how they compare to one another!
Well, they're ALL clones, including STG. Actual Dunhill tobaccos haven't been made since the 1980's, and in the case of Navy Rolls, never existed at all, since Murray's created that particular product. Just pick the clone you like the best. Don't worry, be happy. None of it's legit.Man ... I am confused, so at the end of the day how many people are going to be marketing Dunhill blends and Dunhill clones? Charatan, RObert McConnel, Scandinavian, now Peterson ... what's next?
