I know that everyone has said Dunhill is stopping production, and I see that several of the blends are unavailable online, but some of them are still very available. I've been buying Dark Flake to stock up.

It's been pretty well documented that they have ceased production. It appears that many vendors have uncovered some stashes of certain blends. Unfortunately, MM965 is not in that group, at least not that I've found.

Yeah, they've quit. Not every supplier runs out at once, and in my recent experience Dark flake wasn't a great seller (as good as it is) so there's still some available if you look around. EMP, Nightcap etc...went fast. Navy Rolls is still available in places if you look.
In Europe, Robert McConnell has clone blends under similar names available (Night Club etc...). There are industry rumors that these will eventually be coming stateside, but the FDA is holding things up. No word on their accuracy/quality yet.

From the reviews I've seem they're quality blends, but not the same as the STG product. For example, the McConnell Navy Rolls version has Cavendish in it, and the Royal Yacht version has less topping.

I have read the similarities of the new "Navy Rolls" and Luxury Bullseye Flake are rather apparent, sounds like rebranding to me.

That would be odd, seeing as STG makes PS LBF and K&K makes the McConnell 'Dunhill Clones'.

Search for the Robert McConnel replicas, this is the only for sure thing for now.

Open up a tin of Escudo and a tin of Navy Rolls. Look at them side by side and smoke them. Unless you have two tins of drastically different age or "Super Spidey Sense" i'd wager you couldn't tell the difference. Luxury Bullseye has Cavendish in the center. I'm fairly certain it's a different blend.

First mcclelland and now this? Dunhill tobacco's were most of my favorites. Time to start stockpiling I guess. What is the world coming to?

Man, you're kinda late to the dance. I've been stockpiling for a year+. Most stock at retailers is gone already.

I keep quite a bit around, and my local b&m still has a lot. It looks like I'm paying them a visit soon and dropping some serious cash haha

I have assembled a nice little stash of my fave Dunhill blends. Since the ones I am fondest of were not the most popular,I had no trouble assembling my stash a year or so ago. (I had been cellaring Flake for years.)

Some of the blends that were recently reintroduced to the states - Dark Flake, MM 1938,Ye Olde Signe, among others - are still readily available.
