Escudo Navy Deluxe is an old classic pipe tobacco. It is a Perique/Va Burley cut tobacco. It is packaged in a 50g collectible tin. This tobacco was produced by the Cope brothers from 1870 to 1936, at which point they were bought by Gallaher. Gallaher produced Escudo until 1994. A & C Petersen began production in 1997, and now the Scandinavian Tobacco Group is at the helm with the original presses. It is a medium to strong tobacco.
