    I don't think this has been covered yet. Dunhill is on its way back to the US! My friends at the local B&M went to a trade show a couple weeks ago and came back with some brand new tins of Nightcap from the CAO rep!! Thats right, CAO will begin distributing Dunhill in the US again! Anyone excited about this?

    Yeah, word's been out for a couple months. Originally, September it was to hit our shores, now I hear Oct. or later as they 'rethink' the demand. I'm not excited so much as curious. YMMV.

    OK, I'll be the badboy and ask is or was there any difference(s) between Murray vs. ?Orlik Dunhillz?

    Not as excited as some...Dunhill blends were always just OK for me. I've found better (IMHO) for less elsewhere. There's a tin each of EMP and Nightcap...around 10-12 yrs old, in the cellar. May pop one some day, but I'm having too much fun with the other wonderful tobaccos in my rotation/cellar.

    Two parcels today one from My Smoking Shop and one from a german dude with a danish pipe - Dunhill is in UK at least. Shame the elegance of the old tins is replaced by the idiocy of nannystate'ism.

    you have no idea how much laughter those generate over here. my favorite is when they decided "Cigarettes will cause you to instantly crap your lungs out your anus should you light but one, and you will DIE HORRIBLY AND PAINFULLY WITH BREATH LIKE POO" or whatever the last campaign was, now they have the droopy cigarette with "smoking makes you impotent (and all your friends will point and laugh at your shrivelled useless manhood)" on them. i mean the last part was only implied, but my boss still wants to frame it and put it up in the shop after i finish this pouch of St. Brunos.

    Actually, Dub, I think that St. Brunos will do that to you.

    The hilarious thing about the warnings is that nobody ever bought a tin read the warning and handed it back. Anyway I'm enjoying a bowl of 965 and it is a treat.

    Are they thinking demand is higher or lower than first expected?
