We have not been told anything specific about a sale of this magazine. If, however, the magazine were ever discontinued, subscribers would be refunded the remainder of their unfulfilled subscription. We are going to press next week with the Spring issue!
I have recently realized through a FB conversation that the fantastic website Tobacco Reviews is in danger of folding now that Pipes and Tobaccos Magazine is closing up. In a panic I emailed the site and got this response :
"Unlike the magazine, this web site actually makes money, and thus commands market value. Here's hoping someone will buy it and continue it.
I await developments, like everyone else. There's nothing we can do about any of it, except wait and see.
I would consider the loss of tobaccoreviews bigger than the loss of any blend manufacturer we have experienced or are currently experiencing.
The loss of blends from McClelland and Dunhill pale in comparison.
For my smoking preferences, I can find plenty of other blends to smoke (old and new to me).
But, there is only one tr.com.
We lose out on all of that knowledge being published for our viewing.
But his work is not lost.
I'm sure he keeps copies for his own records.
But, definitely a shame we won't have access to it anymore.
