    Does anyone of you know a tobacco called "Medal of Honor"?
    I don't know the brand and I've never heard of it before. A friend of mine told me about it and he is searching for it a long time and would like to purchase it again. Where can I find it?

    Thanks a lot!:bing:

    Wasn't that a C & D blend? I'd start my search there.

    The only blend I found so far is a Lane blend. But I cannot find a source to buy.

    Yep, it was a Lane blend, I just found that too! C & D did First Responders...

    Lane's Medal of Honor is no more and has been gone for some time. I smoked a tin of it a couple of years ago and it was a fine blend. But it'll be extremely hard to find. Have your friend check Ebay, as I see this and Lane's Crown Achievement for sale in tins periodically.

    You bet! Just another casualty of the whole Lane fiasco. Only their top 10 or so blends survived.

    What a shame. I have to find out more about this - sounds interesting. I've never smoked any Lane tobaccos so far and don't know anything about the "whole fiasco".
