All you fols have been throwing around the McClelland is closing rumor are right I thin!! I just got 6 tins of their va's and opened them to jar them up and there was NO evidence of catsup in ANY of them !! They must have sold out and somebody else is blending their 'baccy and is not using McC's signature catsup in their blending !! All 6 tins of Virginia Woods had NONE of that wonderful Catsup aroma !! McC surely wouldn't leave out the catsup as it defines their blends. Really a sad day !! Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

Where is the press release from McC?? They should be forthcoming in an instance like this as they've been stand-up folks in the biz all this time and not prone to hiding behind rumours.

Question


Cheers,

No offense, but I listened to their most recent podcast, the Valentines Day episode, and that’s the exact opposite of what Jon David and Beau said.

I would guess your missing McCatsup smell is probably from lack of age. Everyone is so panicked that they're going out of business that they have probably released tins that are younger than normal trying to keep up.

It was rumored that there were rumors. Generally, a business doesn't go out of business unless it's a real loser, but instead gets sold. Cf. Wilke tobacco, e.g.

Why open a tin to jar it? I can see doing it with one of C&D's suspect blend but not McClelland. Shocked

Threads and conversations like this sure can't be of help, or positive in any way, for them. Patience and sshhhhhh...

I've known Mike and Mary long enough to know that they wouldn't sell to anyone unless they were 100% sure that the quality wouldn't suffer.

Indeed. Monbla is seriously flawed for starting this. lol.

Really though...I don’t think a discussion about what’s going on will hurt them or their business...likely the opposite. If the business were mine I would never object to having my name widely referred to by potential customers.

I've been seriously flawed my whole life !! Twisted Evil  But to eep a good RUMOR going here's what SP replied about this :

Hi Michael,

My name is Chris Panos, one of the customer service representatives here at Smoking Pipes. Thank you for your inquiry and your patronage.

They very well may be, but we just don't know. Based on the recent multiple discontinuances, it certainly seems possible, if not likely. Sorry that I couldn't help more, but please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any further questions or concerns.

Best Regards,

Christopher Panos
