    How about that? Villiger is out, and Erik Stokkebye has resigned from Villiger. How long do you think Lane will take before they raise the prices?

    There might be a temporary drop in availability of all the blends that Villiger distributed during the transition. What better excuse to expand the cellar?

    Lane will fix any drop in availability. PS is a huge supplier of B&M "house" blends. That's a lot of sales. And I would not expect quality to diminish - it'll still be blended in house, after all.

    In addition to PS, the other brands that will now be distributed by Lane are: Orlik, W.Ø. Larsen, Stanwell, Erinmore, Escudo, Balkan Sasieni, Skandinavik, Sail Tobaccos, and Troost Tobaccos.

    I wonder if they'll bring Orlik Dark Strong Kentucky back to the U.S?

    I just found some Orlik Dark Kentucky @ my local B&M! Pretty sure it's not recent. Sealed though with a hav-a-tampa/ Hollco Rohr inc. sticker on it.

    By the end of April, all availability issues should be under control. Our Lane rep said that they'll have everything coming in before April 1st, but they don't become the distributor until that date. Also, the PS tobaccos have been made by Orlik for quite some time, and that's where they'll continue to be made, so there won't be any changes to the tobacco. Lane also has promised a price freeze for the foreseeable future.
