Admittedly, when you have eighty standard blends and have concocted over 200,000 private mixtures, some get overlooked. While blending the other day, I noticed that these five exceptional tobaccos have not been selling as they once did. Perhaps it has something to do with some mystery surrounding their flavors. So, I thought I’d take the time to talk about them and provide a little more detail so that you can make a more informed decision when in search of your next smoke.
Kind of an oddball, but truly delicious. We have yet to find a similar mixture. We utilize a base of fire-cured Cavendish and blend a small amount of Perique and Dubeck Turkish. D-9507 is a smooth smoking mixture with subtle sweetness and a good measure of fine piquancy.
A blend of dense cube-cut burley with only a gentle touch of latakia. Blend ‘W’ is a solid blast of classic Peretti burley flavor with an added dimension. The latakia brings out the nut-like quality of the burley. On paper, it’s simple. In the bowl, it works oh so well.
Technically an aromatic burley, 1072 has a light sweetness and a clean finish. Added Virginia provides an undertone to the burley and reveals a unique taste sensation. 1072 is of medium body and offers a stellar introduction into the world of burley.
First blended in 1928, Blend 100 is distinct. Burley, Virginia and Cavendish tobaccos are dressed with a proprietary aromatic and the result is a sweet aroma and taste with a lingering hint of white pepper.
The name of this tobacco is not entirely accurate. The original “Original” is no longer produced due to the loss of an English blending component. This burley-based blend has a distinct blend of two aromatics in the subtlest proportions. The combination produces an enchanting room note and a deep taste profile. No Cavendish, no casings, just flavor.
