Deniz Beck, who writes very good reviews, posted one on Strang. In the body of the text, he reveals the latest news on why Strang is not currently made: "...a few words on why it's not produced anymore: Tom Darasz, the now head-blender and owner of Motzek (Herbert Motzek taught Tom Darasz to blend all the old Motzek blends) said to me that the farm that produced teh tobaccos for the Strang went out of business. He tried different leafs, but due to the glory the Motzek Strang gets he didn't wanted to re-release it as the replacement leafs ain't what the originals used to be. The originally used leafs were somewhat special he said. So far so good... but we may see a re-release of the Strang if he'll find a worthy replacement for the old leafs."
