|Tobacco||Dark Fired Kentucky|
|Room Note||3 - Balanced|
Dark-fired Kentucky has been used in all kinds of tobacco products for many decades, but through the years, it was used less and less in pipe tobacco. But for the last fifteen years or so, it has undergone a renaissance. Peter Stokkebye 314 Dark Fired uses Kentucky seed tobacco that is hung in barns and smoked using aromatic woods. This is a potent tobacco that can be very assertive, so it's best to add it with a light hand until you're happy with the result. If you want to kick up a blend, 314 Dark Fired is an excellent option.
Crown Stromboli Filter pipes are normal-sized Italian briars that will accept a 6mm (Medico or Dr. Grabow) filter. Unlike comparable pipes, these all have chambers around 3/4" for a pretty long smoke. These attractive pipes sport a red and black contrast staining that really allows the grain to "pop". Then they're topped off with a nice gloss finish which works beautifully with the black stems. Best of all, you can get a larger pipe for around the same price as the smaller 6mm pipes. If you like filtered pipes and a longer smoke, you should add a Crown Stromboli Filter pipe to your collection.
