Look at the fourth blend listed, its ingredients, and its purported inspiration:

http://www.altadisusa.com/cigar/bulktobacco.asp

Let's see... Westminster became the best selling and best known blend of the world's top boutique pipe tobacco blender, and a juggernaut-sized company hundreds of times larger just happens to introduce a blend in the same style, with the same name, and based on the same inspiration 2.5 years later.

Those corporate suits have some serious balls, don't they?

No class, no class at all.

Helpful hint: If your company also manufactures "705 Kentucky Blizzard - All the essentials of the Kentucky Blizzard Cocktail, Bourbon, Cranberry Juice, Lime Juice and Grenadine, are present in this composition of six different tobaccos," you have no f'ing business even attempting to knock off GLP under *any* name.

Unfortunately one can't trademark the name of a historical city. And many tobacco blends have the same "basic" three or four ingredients, just different tobaccos within that basic category and different percentages. I'm sure most of us will know the difference on the first puff


Suspect . Hey, this ain't Westminster!!!

They sold nightcap, walnut, bluenote and half a dozen other name brands while they were still in production by their creators

Don't they also have a blend named Blue Note, which is an inept ripoff of Dan's Blue Note? Their target audience must be the clueless and uninformed.

Just in case your not joking, "Greg" refers to "Greg Pease", the owner and blender of "G.L. Pease" tobaccos.

For anyone who is interested, I wrote a blog post over in a Passion for Pipes on this situation.

http://passionforpipes.squarespace.com/neills-blog/2010/9/12/whats-in-a-name.html

Needless to say, I certainly understand the sentiments expressed here. While it seems inconceivable that people don't know the difference, there are stories of fortunes being made - and I do mean fortunes - by one person taking another person's brand name in the tobacco category. The pipe tobacco category is now too small for this to happen, but the principles remain the same.

Interisting read, Neill.

I do wonder what will happen if/when the Cuba-US embargo ends, what will happen between the Cuban and non-Cuban cigar brands of the same name--Dominican Cohibas, Cuban Cohibas, and probably (given that initial boom of legal Cubanos) some counterfeit Cohibas from Parts Unknown.

Indeed, I wonder also what will happen to the use of the word Cuban in tobacco names and advertising.
