Pipe Tobacco

Page history last edited by Tony Barr 9 years, 2 months ago

Just a list of pipe tobaccos I have used in recent years, along with a rating of between 1 and 5 stars.

I generally favour Virginia flakes, with or without 'extras' and I also enjoy various twists, plugs and English mixtures.

JTI = Japan Tobacco International

K&K = Kohlhase & Kopp (who make Robert McConnell tobaccos now)

Tranter's tobaccos are only available online from Cigar Connoisseur, the mail order division of Frederick Tranter. They were apparently originally made by Murray's and now probably by Orlik/STG.

 

Bur = Burley

Cav = Cavendish

Lat = Latakia

Or = Oriental
Per = Perique

Tur = Turkish

Va = Virginia
