House of Windsor
House of Windsor is a relatively small American tobacco company that has been around for 80+ years. They are known for their cigars (Wolf Brothers Crooks) and pipe tobaccos (Country Doctor, Bourbon Street, Barking Dog). I found House of Windsor articles at Smokeshop Mag. and Pipes and Tobaccos Mag. but nothing about their, apparently new, brands of cigarette tobacco.

Imperial Tobacco
"We are the world's fourth largest international tobacco company."
While they have a strong US presence (as RBA) with tubes and machines (Premier, Rizla, etc.), none of their MYO tobaccos are currently imported to the US. This could change now that they own Commonwealth Brands.

Mac Baren Tobacco
Manufacturer (mostly pipe tobacco) located in Denmark whose "roots reach back to 1826." The site has no MYO related info. Their MYO tobaccos are imported/distributed by Arango Cigar.

Jan '08: It sounds like D&R will be manufacturing Arango Sportsman, that it will replace the imported Mac Baren made Arango Sportsman.
