OK. McC's is out of Syrian, and I have a serious addiction to it. In a panic, shopped for any of their Syrian blends, even Ashton's Artisan, (which is also delish!) to no avail. Schnitzel! Frack! Frelling stuff is all missing......

OK, OK, time for drastic measures. Before it is too late....

Found 16 ounce bags of Mac Baren Vintage Syrian. Good enough. Bought two for free shipping and less grief from SWMBO. Price per ounce it's still the cheapest thing going.

Jars, must acquire more jars. Smaller jars too. Got to spread it out. Savour it. My Precious........................

Smokingpipes has some of their Syrian stuff back in stock, including over 400 tins of 3 Oaks Syrian.

My private tobacco supplier has nothing in Syrian Latakia.  I placed an order with Smokingpipes yesterday and ordered a few tins of 
McClelland: Collector 3 Oaks Syrian 
Thanks Josh, it was out of stock for a while. I was told once this is sold out might not be back for quite some time, if ever.

I haven't been back to check there today, but went to 4noggins and dropped another Franklin on Ashton's Artisan and McClelland Rose of Latakia. I'll need to move a pipe or some home blends to grab some three oaks... My tobacco allowance is tapped for February!

Chipped in for a little SAD TAD myself and picked up several tins of my favorites plus a few extras.

Wilderness x 5 (IMHO an absolute gem of a smoke, and one of the best McClelland English mixtures)
3 Oaks Syrian x 5
Full Syrian Balkan x 2
Celebrated Sovereign x 1

I am tapped out on tobacco funds. Wake me up in a few months....

From what I understand, at least as far as the McClelland stuff goes, what's out there for retail now is the finale.

Wait, what? Has McC announced major discontinuations that I've somehow missed?

Ian,

The known - Tad Gage, who blended the 3 Oaks stuff for McC, announced that McClelland's Syrian leaf has run out.

The unknown - How many tins of each blend went to market.

If you enjoy any of their offerings that contain Syrian leaf, get what you can while you can.

That's all I know.

Ooooooohhhhhhhhhhh, ok. You're just talking about the Syrian blends.

I read your comment, jumped to conclusions, assumed something was up with all McC stock, and panicked. I mean, this is bad news as it is - I just worked it up to be much, much worse.

Nothing to see here!
