Re: Escudo - no longer A&C Petersen!

Labels, Smabels, I ain't smoking the sticker or the tin. Any changes as far as the contents?????

When I walk through the house, I always have someone proceed me with a boom-box playing Darth Vader theme music to lend a weighty and ominous air to my approach.

Stokkebye has many of it's tobaccos sold as bulk, if not the 24 oz box. Think there's a possibility of 24 oz Escudo box, like their LBF?

Re: Escudo - no longer A&C Petersen!

Eyeballed the other "new" tin I have, tin date 07/11/2009. The front label sez "Fine Tobacco". The three newest tins dated 11/11/2009 say "Pipe Tobacco". Whacky!

Shoot. I have so much Escudo in the cellar it'll take me til 2022 to get around to the '09 or '19 tins. I keep meaning to crack one of those new guys, darn it.

Tastes and looks the same to me, but I wasn't thinking about it too hard.

I'm in the same boat (or barn, as the case may be) as the Moo ... I'll probably have grandkids that smoke before I reach the "new" production tins of Escudo :evil:

I believe the same dudes still "manufacture" Escudo, i.e. Villiger Stokkebye
aka Peter Stokkebye aka Scandinavian Tobacco Group
Villiger Stokkebye International
Group Companies | www.st-group.com
although I'm not really sure about this.
