Patience my friend. I spoke to a rep from C&D last year and was told the it will be released again in the future. I figure they have it on a cycle like CRF and Sunbear.
I don't wish to be contrarian, but...

I emailed C&D a few months ago as the last sale on Savinelli at Smokingpipes.com had wiped out the supply of 140th. I was told that the blend would not be produced again as it was not the best seller. The subject of a 145th did not come up, though they had certainly started on this project by the time I talked with them.

It was a slow seller. No idea why, I think it's a nice VA/OR with the little bit of those dark fired florets. The only thing I can think of is 100 gram tins make people weird to buy but then doesn't make sense because they'll buy the max limit of a 2oz tin.

Well dang, I hope you're wrong, but you're more than likey right. I called before the last release of CRF. They might have had high hopes for it at the time. I'll have to stretch out what I've got.

Unfortunately, I only bought one tin to test. I think it's a nice unique and refreshing blend, and love the elderflower essence. Saving it for special occasions in a jar though 100g (more like 70 now) won't go far.
