A blend of complexity. The unique tobacco used, is the Rustica, a heavyweight among tobaccos.
Originally smoked by the English settlers over 400 years ago, now used to spice up the blend and add strength. The spicy, earthy notes from the Rustica are paired with several excellent Virginias, some for adding sweetness, some with a vinegar note, and some for balance. The blend is rounded off with just a handful of Dark Fired Kentucky, partly because it fits perfectly with Rustica, and partly to add some underlying smoky notes. The balance of the blend is extraordinary, spicy, earthy notes with the natural sweetness from the Virginias, topped with faint smoky notes from the Dark Fired Kentucky.
