For those concerned about the imminent demise of Dunhill pipe tobacco, it sure looks like Kohlhase and Kopp has you covered with their new line of Robert McConnell Heritage Blends. However they taste, some of the names are definitely good for a laugh!

There classification could use some work though. I see they're listing Royal Island as a Scottish Mixture.

So let's say these wannabe-clones are good substitutes for the Dunhills; how will they fare with the FDA's deeming regulations? (Whatever the hell "deeming" means in this context.)

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but I see no indication that they intend to bring them to the States at all. Ordering from overseas looks to be the only way these will ever find there way here. It's possible that if STG had continued the blending they might have been able to get away with a name change of some sort rather that full on having to submit each and every blend for testing. This is purely speculation on my part but I believe they're concern is the European and Asian markets only.

Ye Old Sign = Hangover Tavern
DeLuxe Navy Rolls = Edward G's CANNON

And yet the Dunnie blends are still available as far as I can tell. So this may be a bit premature. What am I missing here?

Exclamation

I chatted with a guy at tobacco pipes dot com. Nice folks. Asked him if the inventory is running down. He said that is starting to run out but blends won't go away but be renamed by STG that currently does the blends for Dunhill. Said Dunhill wanted a rediculous price to buy the brand and everyone laughed at the asking price

These tobaccos are not exactly match blends. The rumor goes, in Europe, that K & K has actually acquired all the blends' recipes.
So they are supposed to be the real thing, but under different and, er, exotic names in some cases. Very Happy

Looks like Royal Yacht has run out, at least at the larger on-line retailers (most don't even list it right now). Good thing I have 12 in the cellar!

I did, too, a few years back. I still have some Murray's Navy Rolls, too.

Dark Flake is gone at Smokingpipes.com won't be long before it's done everywhere else too.

Rat Hunter? Exorcism Mixture?

Good Grief.

Re: these being closer to the originals since they use the same recipes?  

They would also have to use the same component tobacco.  Don’t know if the same tobaccos are even still available.  But...tobacco blends are like horseshoes?  Close might be a winner.  Only one way to find out.

I won’t be trying any of these soon. I just blew my monthly budget on a fresh can of Peretti’s DD Burley Blend.  Gotta have it.

The only Dunhill blend I really stocked up on. Top notch stuff. Reminds me a lot of some of the good Virginia blends that also went away this year.
