Processing on my order too, at P&C. My confirmation page read as “In-Stock,” but a day later, it changed to “Backordered.” I’m hoping that means they are expecting more soon and my order will be filled then. I meant to write them and ask but forgot.

My FVF order from P&C still says “Backordered.” I’m waiting to hear back from them. In the meantime, I’d say it looks like you have too much, balkosobrains. Don’t you know that tobacco is hazardous to your health? Please send me a box, for your health’s sake!

I sent them a message, but haven't heard back. I don't even mind if it takes a while to get it. Jut let me know what's going on.

P&C filled my backorder!
So, I'm deep in FVF. Would anyone like to trade a couple boxes of BBF?

What I find really confusing and frustrating is that on the one hand there is so much demand for good tobacco that tobacconists can't keep SG in stock (and we mere mortals can only rarely get our hands on it) while Dunhill and McClellands can't stay in business.
Very weird market. Isn't there some business model for good tobacco that avoids intentional scarcity, but still turns a profit? Why couldn't Dunhill and McClellands stay in business by reducing volume and raising prices?

Your information is incorrect.
In a nutshell, Dunhill simply no longer wants to be associated with tobacco. The owners of McClelland wanted to retire, and did not wish to sell their brand.
In neither case was it ever implied that these companies couldn’t stay in business had they desired to do so.

You may have better information that I have, but I was under the impression that explanation of Dunhill's dropping their pipe tobaccos was unsubstantiated speculation, speculation that, furthermore, never made much sense to me: considering they continued to market Dunhill cigarettes.
Similarly with McClelland, I didn't follow it particularly closely, so if there is something I missed please let me know, but Mary Ehwa seems to be citing anticipated costs of FDA compliance and the limited availability of quality mature virginia tobacco (a scarcity which could presumably be overcome if they could afford to pay more for it) as the reason for throwing in the towel here.
