50g // 1 3/4 oz.

Type:

Virginia, Oriental, little Latakia

Form:

Sliced Crumble Cake

Sold in:

50g Tin

Strength:

5-6

On the Tin:

Balance is the key to The Viking. A fair amount of Latakia is blended with Red and Bright Virginias, finally joined by a touch of Oriental and Burley. The Latakia is present but does not dominate the taste, as it is a part of the bigger picture. The Virginias and the Orientals each play their part, adding natural sweetness and a slight spiciness - a perfectly balanced, English-inspired blend.

Comment:

Balance is the key word to this blend. A very fair amount of Latakia is blended with Red and Bright Virginias, and finally, a little Oriental and a pinch of Burley. The Latakia is present but does not dominate the taste, as it is a part of the bigger picture. The Virginias and the Orientals each offer their flavor to the overall taste by adding natural sweetness and a slight spiciness—a perfectly balanced English-inspired blend.

Type:

Virginia-Perique, Rustica, Kentucky

Form:

Ready Rubbed

Sold in:

50g Tin

Strength:

6

On the Tin:

A Virginia / Perique blend with a twist. Select Red and Bright Virginias constitue a dynamic body, emboldened with genuine St. James Perique, bringing peppery, earthy nuances to the natural sweetness. What really sets Three Swords apart is the impactful pinch of Rustica and Dark Fired Kentucky, offering balance, strength, and a subtle smokiness.

Comment:

A Virgina / Perique blend with a balanced twist. The main body of this blend is selected Red and Bright Virginias, where the original St. James Perique is blended. This is a guarantee for natural sweetness and slight peppery/earthy notes. The twist is a small amount of Rustica and Dark Fired Kentucky mixed in to give the blend a little balance, strength, and a subtle smokiness.

Name:

Two Axes

Code #:

PJT005

Price:

CHF 24.00

Weight:

50g // 1 3/4 oz.

Type:

VA-Kentucky, Oriental Katerini, Latakia

Form:

Sliced Crumble Cake

Sold in:

50g Tin

Strength:

7

On the Tin:

Two Axes is a truly unique tobacco. A healthy portion of Latakia offers forward smokiness atop the mellow sweetness from the base Bright, Red and Stoved Virginias. Kentucky brings a floral spice for complexity that is in perfect harmony with two novel Orientals; Stoved Katerini and Katerini Perique which bring a special dark berry and spice, completing the rich, complex mixture.

Comment:

Red Virginias gives a sweet and tangy foundation. The bold Rustica leaf has been hot pressed and made into a Cavendish for the first time ever. This tempers the bold tobacco a bit without losing its robust character and even offers herbal/floral notes to the smoke.

The Helmet

Code #:

PJT006

Price:

CHF 24.00

Weight:

50g // 1 3/4 oz.

Type:

Virginia, Rustica and Katerini

Form:

Sliced Crumble Cake

Sold in:

50g Tin

Strength:

6

On the Tin:

An all-black blend of three types of Cavendish. The natural sweetness of the familiar Virginia Cavendish is blended with Rustica and Katerini, which have also been blackened in the Cavendish process - unprecedented for these tobaccos and the palates of pipe smokers around the world. The bold Rustica offers earth and herbal notes in balance with the Katerini, which retains much of its Oriental qualities, imparting a light sweetness, subtle spice, and a steady burn.

Comment:

An all-black blend of three types of Cavendish. The Virginia Cavendish is a well-known tobacco that offers natural sweetness. The Rustica Cavendish is new to the pipe smokers of the world and offers boldness, earthiness, and herbal notes. The Katerini Cavendish is also new and unique, which transfers a good part of its properties as Oriental tobacco, with slight sweetness, a little spicy, and good burning abilities.
