Most, if not all of the American OTC's have been around forever. This, alone, tells me that they are good and they sell. Sure, some people don't like this or that blend, but in general if they have been around for 50 years then the numbers are good, right? So, how come the local availability of OTC's is so low? I can find a few OTC's in my area that I like. Prince Albert, Half and Half, Captain Black and Borkum Riff are pretty much available everywhere, while I can only find Carter Hall and SWR Regular in few places. If I want a pouch of Granger, for instance, or Kentucky Club then I have to order online... why? Now, I can foresee some responses saying something along the lines of "I can find Granger locally in my area..." and that's fine, but keep in mind that while you'll be able to find Granger you might not find something else. I know the popularity of pipe smoking is not what it was 30+ years ago. But with the availability of OTC's being so low in most areas, I wonder, what gives? I was hoping this would be somewhat rectified when Lane took over many OTC's, but it doesn't look like anything is happening. Any thoughts?
