|Room Note||3 - Balanced|
When this arrived, it got overlooked, so we're late in putting it on our site. But that could be a very good thing for anyone who has tried it and wants to get some more. We're glad to add 4th Generation No 1 Tobacco of the Year to our lineup.
Everything about this tobacco is first class. Superb Virginias are blended with choice Kentucky Burley, a variety of select Orientals from three regions, and some premium Louisiana Perique. The tobaccos are finished with honey and floral notes and pressed and sliced into flakes. They're packaged in a handsome cedar box rather than the typical tin. This not only makes for a handsome presentation, the slightly aromatic cedar adds a delightful woody note to the tobacco. The flavor is complex and the honey and floral notes never overwhelm the outstanding leaf used in the blend. Production was limited to 300 boxes, most of which are already gone. 4th Generation No 1 Tobacco of the Year is truly a treat for all the senses.
