    Whilst trying to pull a 'Brad' I came
    across this SG blend photo. TR has
    NO information on it, and obviously,
    I can't read the warning to figure out
    what language this is in. Any one of
    our overseas PSF'rs recognise the
    language? Anyone heard of this blend
    before? As I'm a big SG fan, I'd love
    to get my hands on a tin of this!

    I'm not good at much, but I am good at languages, so I can translate this for you. It says: All ye that smoke this, do not do so in a Falcon. :D

    I've never heard of this one either... That's it though, I'm telling the wife we need to move to Europe so I can enjoy blends not available here! :laff: That'll go over well

    That's really strange its not listed on their website. This is just wild speculation, but maybe they had to rebrand some of their tobacco to sell it in that region?

    well the language is Italian - the trusty Google translator say it means "smoking seriously harms you and others around you"

    My take away was that English tobaccos are VERY dangerous indeed and should be avoided.

    I sent an email to SG and got this response.

    Dear Sir, sorry but Palace Gate is not available in the US as this is a private label. However I will forward your mail to our distributor in Canada who will get it for you I have no doubt. If this fails then it is not through want of trying.

    Regards

    Bob Gregory


    I'll post back with the response if anyone is interested. Maybe it won't be as expensive ordering from overseas for us in North America.
