A popular, classic rises from the ashes!
John Cotton's Nos. 1 & 2 was a staple for many pipe enthusuasts until it disappeared in the eighties. Through careful research and sampling vintage tins, which jogged the memory of master blender Russ Ouellette, this smooth and smoky blend has returned for a whole new generation of pipe lovers to try.
This is a mellow to medium-bodied blend of ripe Virginias, fragrant Orientals, spicy Turkish leaf and Latakia. There's enough Latakia to let you know it's there, but the marriage of the Cyprian leaf and the various Orientals produce an exotic flavor, and the Virginias add just the right amount of sweetness for beautiful balance. John Cotton's Nos. 1 & 2 can be enjoyed anytime, and will never overwhelm the palate.
