    I thought he is the captain. I am not on FB, Piffyr, so would you mind passing along news as it breaks?

    I wonder if Glynn is working with a bigger established blender/producer, I could see that working.

    Amazing and wonderful news. Imagine, in this day and age, the resurrection of a tobacconist!!

    Just came in and I can read a little more into it now. Looking through Glynn's comment replies the gist that I'm getting is rather anticlimactic. GQ will be under new ownership. Glynn will not be involved other than in an advisory capacity. Small batch GH&C and SG blends will not be available. GQ blends will not be returning, although Glynn hints that he has retained the rights to them and may be cooking up some plan for them.

    All in all... move along, folks. Nothing to see here.

    Well darn, that quite the bummer regarding the Gawith blends!

    The problem always was the testing and registration of the unique blends. Without those Glynn was competing in a large market of e-tailers who's prices for regular blends he couldn't match as a one man band. Perhaps a take over by a larger concern could compete.

    No aloud speculation as to whom yet.
