I found 5 50gr tins of Frog Morton at a tobacco shop this evening. $50 each. (No, of course I didn't buy them.).
I'm old but I'm happy. (Most of the time.)

Well crap. I just found out about this today. FMOTT was a splendid blend. I have about half a tin of Black Shagg left. I'll savor that a while. Guess just keep stocking up on Dunhill till they're gone.

Now, Milan's Triple Crown is like FMOTT only a bit stronger. BobB from My Pipes Community developed that with them.

I stopped in at Smoker's Haven in Lubbock over lunch and he had some McClelland tins left on the shelf. The number is (806) 799-2489 if you are interested.

Long story short. Opened a tin of 2015 McClelland Holiday Spirit with an old friend today. Never heard of this before but actually has a pecan pie note in the taste. Dandy.

Try McConnell's Ripe Honeydew. It's a highly underrated top quality Virginia with an oh so light honey topping (real light; it's nearly full Virginia). It's fantastic.

I haven't done an exhaustive search, but Ripe Honeydew seems in short supply right now.

Just a shame. A damn shame is what it is. They made the best Virginia tobaccos in the entire world, and at reasonable prices to boot.

I have a friend who came to know the McNeils quite well. He asked Mike if he might sell his blending notes to someone and Mike said plainly, "No, they'd *%!@# it up."

It is made by McConnell, but it is always the last McConnell to sell out because most folks do not really want it. It's kind of like the other Esoterica blends that are meh, but it's Esoterica, right!?

In any case, http://www.marscigars.com/mcconnells-ripehoneydew.aspx, here you go. They have 4 in stock. You're welcome :).

Boswell's also has it and the other McConnell's in stock right now (but their prices are high and this maybe the reason they are still there).

Pennsylvania’s tobacco taxes are sky high on pipe tobacco. That said, though, I’ll remind you fine folks to support your local shops. Those big warehouse internet places will be shut down by governmental regulation sooner or later, and it’s important to have local businesses still in business.

I get Christmas presents from my local, too. :D

$14 for something that is usually out of stock ain't bad, my friend.
