From the Sutilff website:
LIMITED RUN PRODUCTION – ONLY 7,500 TO BE PRODUCED
A LIGHT, ORIENTAL-FOCUSED ENGLISH MIXTURE ACCENTUATED WITH TWO NOVEL, STOVED TOBACCOS—RUSTICA AND KATERINI. THE ORIENTALS ARE MUSKY AND HERBAL, BRINGING MUCH OF THE FLAVOR ALONGSIDE RED VIRGINIA TANG AND WOOD AS WELL AS SPICE FROM THE STOVED KATERINI. THE STOVED RUSTICA OFFERS A STOUT BODY AND PEPPERY SENSATION, HARMONIZING WITH A LIGHT LATAKIA SMOKINESS.
STOVED—OR CAVENDISH—TOBACCOS ARE OFTEN THOUGHT OF AS THE VEHICLE FOR TOP FLAVORING. THOUGH THIS IS CERTAINLY A FINE ATTRIBUTE, THE WONDERFUL CHARACTERISTICS IMPARTED FROM THE STOVING PROCESS CAN EASILY BE OVERLOOKED. PIPE FORCE ILLUSTRATES JUST THAT WITH THE STOVING OF TWO VARIETALS FOR THE FIRST TIME, RUSTICA AND KATERINI.
PIPE FORCE, A SERIES THAT CELEBRATES PIPE SMOKING BY SHOWING INNOVATION ISN’T A THING OF THE PAST, THERE ARE STILL FRONTIERS TO EXPLORE.
