Erik Peter, his Great Grandfather, founded his familyís tobacco business in Denmark and was known for his deep passion for natural tobacco flavors. Truly for the experienced pipe smoker, 1855 is a ready-rubbed blend of exceptional golden, mature Virginia tobaccos that demonstrates the natural sweet Virginia taste and its pleasant aroma. The 1855 blend is an all-Virginia blend with very mature flue-cured tobaccos. There are a lot of natural sugars, and it is relatively a bit higher in nicotine. Itís a little bit stronger, but also has the natural sweetness of the mature Virginias. Itís not for someone just starting out smoking pipe tobacco. Itís for somebody that likes a nice full Virginia smoke. 1.4 oz/40 gram tin.
