I've made a point to have on hand the old and newer favorites. Not hoarding but just having , if that makes sense . I make them last . I know they're there and I have them when really in the mood for it and nothing else will do . Thankfully , other stuff will do most of the time . I'm pretty easy , but damn it , when I want the old Three Nuns ... It better be there

When you find something you really like, just cellar is as hard as you can. McClelland, we had like 6 months notice, Dunhill was close to 2 years notice. There really is not much of an excuse, to get burnt on those blends, especially since they were widely available, and always in stock. Esoterica has been dropping religiously quarterly. There has been more Esoterica this year, then i have seen in the past 5 years.

What i consider getting burnt, was Peterson Irish Flake. There was zero warning, nothing on forums, just vanished.

At the end of the day, if you like something just buy as much as you can afford, its never going to be as cheap or available as it is today. This past yeas was the year of Not in Stock. Even 13 months ago all G&H, Sammy G, F&T (cut virginia plug, exception, McConnels (scotich cake, exception), Lancers and so many more were always in stock.

I pray that Sam G is just getting adjusted to new packaging or something crazy like that. When it shows up you best snag it. It’s not that I try to hoard, but BBF & FVF are daily smokes for me(always have been and hopefully will continue) I have tried desperately to find a replacement if need be and I haven’t found one satisfying that craving yet. I have managed to acquire about 3 lbs of fvf and 250g bbf this time. I don’t stock many varieties at all, but try very hard to stock what I love. if it takes 6 months for it to show up again I’m gonna be in big trouble and it didn’t go over well when I told the wife I wanted to move to the UK :D

With McClelland, I didn't realize there was a notice . I remember reading in the old psf that they called it quits .... and the next day it was all gone except for a few bulk aros
