I havenít looked lately but I have noticed that it does run out every once in a while, Iíve got about the same as you, should last me a while. Have you tried Chatham Manor? Itís a match blend. I think that the flavor is a bit richer/deeper maybe a little sweeter. I like the CH for a work smoke because it wonít bite even if Iím not paying attention. The CM will if pushed too hard.

If I see a stick that made a noob nic sick,I put it on my list as a must try. (UBC03)

I have not Nathan, lets see how it goes, i may have to give it a go. Like you i smoke CH when im doing something, easy to just pick it up, have a few good puffs and leave it not having to think about how im smoking it, i do get bite from a lot of tobacco's if i dont take care as i still tend to puff like a steamtrain

Gentlemen, it seems CH is being discontinued. This offer on Pipestud might turn out to be a bargain LOL!

Where did you see that it's being discontinued? I know many Middleton Blends were discontinued some years back, but I can't find anything confirming Carter Hall...

Also, there is a thread on pipesmagazine discussing this and one of the members has called and spoke with Middleton and they claim the only thing being cancelled is PA in 14oz tubs to California. This doesn;t change the fact that no one seems to have this in stock, but maybe because the company has recently changed hands, or COVID production related???

Erik, you're right. I didn't carefully read the blurb for Carter Hall on the pipestud.com website. Here's what he actually wrote:

"Okay, now that Middletonís has announced that it is discontinuing classics like Prince Albert, Iím sure there will be a calf scramble for other Middleton blends like Carter Hall. There are still places where you can get a 14 oz tub of this one fresh for less than $50, so just for fun, hereís a 10-year old tub thatís gotta be worth the extra $15 for all the age, right?"

Circling back to this one. Apparently Middleton is lying to customers when they call. Theyíve been telling people that only certain CA sold products were being discontinued but now Vendors are starting to tell customers that Carter Hall and Prince Albert are gone as theyíve been told by their distributors that they have been executed.

Hard to say which source to believe, but either way, it now seems to be gone everywhere.

Soon youíll be seeing $200 tubs of Prince Albert on eBay.

This is just crazy. Certainly one of the last blends I thought I'd see leave the market. I figured it would come down to CB, PA, and CH being some of the last OTCs available. Though I just talked to a buddy in my old home town in the Midwest. He said the only "pipe tobacco" he could find is the RYO junk they sell as pipe tobacco to skirt the taxes. So maybe we've already gotten to and past the point of even having the old staples still hanging around. Sad if that's the case.
