What's notable to me is that Dunhill is expanding its revival of past blends. When an outfit with resources makes a move like this, it is usually because they have some pretty solid data on sales trends. Smaller outfits just want to get into the game and place their bets. But Dunhill is a big boy and doesn't move until all the marketing men, investors, blenders, and tobacco gurus have weighed in. Looks like they said yes, do it. I think it's way more than a shot in the dark.
Well Glenn says he is getting them in and I've always found him to be a stand up guy and blender. With him taking orders I would consider it a given that BB has returned. I just hope it's not too long before it hits the states.
mso489 makes an interesting point. It looks like someone on the tobacco side did a great job of selling upward in the Dunhill organization. I had heard that the head of the company is not a fan of tobacco so cudos for bringing back some of the retired classics.
