    No kidding !? I only had it a few times years ago and then didnt see it . I think I'm getting old enough to where dates are getting blurred a bit . I kinda figured it wasnt the one Ming had being it wasnt sweet . I just remember the round yellow tin and it being an English type blend . I liked it but was doing the London Dock blend for an English style at the time . I really liked london Dock for when I could get away from Edgeworth , which wasnt often

    Well, the pipe shop had a pretty good supply and as far as I know they may never have ordered it after the 1980's. Not a lot of locals were smoking it and, naive as I was, I just bought it two tins at a time, thinking it would be around forever. At that time, I had zero experience with blends going the way of the dodo bird. The Sobranies were as rare as sand in the desert (sigh).
