Simple as that , the ingredients weren't right so it's not blended. Simple/dimple ! Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

From the several rumors (some new, some old) that have been going around about McClelland's future that I will not repeat it may not be that simple. Shocked

I second this. It's not simple at all. Yes, the crop this year was subpar. No, that's not the only factor.

McCranies sell 5100 under there own name as FIRST LIGHT and they still have stock. †This is the real McCoy, you can take my word for it.

Unfortunately I can't order from them because they accept money order or cheques only.

I do have about 500g in stock but would have liked to order more † 5)

I'm gonna order 2 oz. to check it out!! If it don't have any ketchup in it, it aint the same stuff !! Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

When I visited Boswell's last Saturday a man was in there lamenting about 5100 being gone. I haven't had the chance to try it out, but it sounds like it was well loved by many.

I spent a good amount of time at Just For Him in Springfield MO. They have been told all the 2000 and 5000 series blends are no longer available. In fact, the majority of bulks are done. McClelland is also out of Cyprian Latakia.

This has had an impact on the Lord of The Rings blends. Done now. The components are no longer available, though they are shopping for alternatives.

The good news is, whole leaf suppliers are coming up with all kinds of new leaf. Red Virginias, even hand picked over-ripe tips! Also, many of the oriental leaf that was not available seems to be ready to purchase. Basma, Katarini, Samsun, Yenidji, you name it. Buy some for 20 or so bucks a pound, grab a 16 dollar a pound red Carolina Ginnies, and go to work people!

Quite the overload of intel Ozzie.

The demise of the 2000 and 5000 blends are sobering. As is the lack of Cyprian Latakia. Hard to believe it's not available to the folks at McC! What's up with that?

And yet the availability of those others leafs at least provides possible new horizons.


Cheers!

You are not kidding......

Plenty of theories as to why, but they are only theories. But it is not restricted to just a lack of the 'right' red Ginnies to make 5100.

If any shop or online retailers use 5100 as a component, they can't use any other tobacco in its place. that would constitute a new blend, and no new blends can be made and sold after 8/8/2016. I suspect that the impact is going to be much wider than 5100 itself and the McClelland blends that contain it. I'm going to have to discontinue a few blends because of this.
