This tobacco was available in the U.S. until around 1983 when Dunhill went out of the tobacco business and sold the name to Murrys . I had a reserve of cans and was able to smoke it through the 1990's . It was for many years available at the Duke St. store in London . The nice thing about 620 was the cut , sort of shag like but not a true shag . It provided a really good burn and a fine white ash .It was sort of a Virginia forward English mixture with a decent amount of latakia but not over the hill . I was never aware of the Royal Yacht said to be present but I'm sure it was there if Dunhill claimed it . This was really a cross over English blend because the quality Virginias were clearly in charge . Back in the day the Dunhill My Mixtures provided a great variety to the lexicon of available tobaccos and , for me , #620 was near the top of the list . It was not available in local pipe shops , you needed to go to the Dunhill shop to buy it . Today we have so many tobaccos available that no one stands out but , back in the day , #620 was an elite tobacco . You needed to make an effort to obtain it and it's selection marked the smoker as a man of taste . Today is but a fragrant memory .
