    Hello,

    I'm sure they are, as recreated by K&K. When you look at the names of the blends and the tin label design, they come very close to the originals, certainly close enough to be recognizable, and hopefully they are different enough to avoid accusations of plagiarism...

    Ally: I think "Flake" in the dark blue tin is what you are looking for.

    Best wishes
    Markus

    Thanks. For some reason I thought 221b Baker Street was yet another Latakia mixture. Probably would have tried it by now had I known otherwise.

So, for us at least, the more things change, the more they stay the same.
    Quite right, Anthony. That's it! I'm moving to England.

    After all of the statistics and reports are finished with, I've come to the conclusion that the only real danger of smoking a pipe is being interrupted.

    A tin of Robert McConnell is 13.95 at GQ at the moment, It'll be interesting to see the price range of the new clones.

    Well I've already stocked up on YOS for my homebrew (got the ingredients for 5 lb) so I'm not as overjoyed as I might once have been, but I still think it's good news. And maybe now it'll be possible to score some 221B in its new incarnation since I've never smoked it and it looks good.

    ...and the Virginia is now 5 Year Mature instead of the original's measly 3 years.
