Do any of you older pipers remember London Dock OTC blend?  Is there a modern match since it's been off the market for some time?  I had about a 25 year hiatus before I picked up my pipe again a couple years back and several of my old favorites seem to have disappeared.  Crying or Very sad

LOT'S of stuff has changed over the last 25 years !! Twisted Evil Twisted Evil I'd try asking Jim inks here on the forum as he's very involved in most of what's produced today !! Who would've thought 25 years ago, that Dunhill would NOT be blending tobacco !! Onward thru the Fog !! Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

Simple Man beat me to it. I have a sample of the Match to try, but I never smoked the original to compare, which is something I was hoping to do.

A the father of a buddy's of mine smoked London Dock. He called it London Dump. I tried it once. The tin/package note was a bit garbage like. Did not care for it. I wonder if it has improved. affraid

I never tried the original London Dock, even though I picked up an old sealed tin a couple years ago that had been produced by General Cigar.
Milan Tobacconists have a blend called "Our London Dock" which is a favorite of mine.  Absolutely delicious!

I'll go along with hijacking this thread as DUNHILL does not make pipes anymore. They are made by WHITE SPOT. DUNHILL does NOT do tobacco stuff anymore !! Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

Several years ago I worked with a guy who was constantly bemoaning the demise of London Dock.
Thinking I was doing him a large favor, I gifted him 4 oz. of the Milan version.
His response: this ain't London Dock. He was unable or unwilling to tell me what he found lacking
(not that I could appreciate the differences, having smoked neither the real thing or the Milan tribute).
I loved the guy a lot but never felt the urge to presume to gift him any other tobacco!
Just one experience for consideration!
