Charatan Royal Ensign Mixture Pipe Tobacco – 50 Grams
Charatan Royal Ensign Mixture – Similar to Dunhill Standard Mixture
A traditional English mixture that sets the standard. The finest grades of Cyprus Latakia and Oriental tobacco from the Mediterranean are blended with flue cured grades from East Carolina and Georgia and lightly Toasted in dry drums to enhance the flavour. This provides a rich aromatic smoke.
With the demise of all the Dunhill tobaccos that has recently taken place, Tor Imports have brought
out a range of Charatan tobaccos to replace the Dunhll range.
The blends are as close as posible to the originals, although they can’t exactly match them, these new tobaccos have been very well received, in some cases comments have been that the Charatan blend is veen better than the Dunhill original !
