Van smokersforumlid Kashmir komt deze lijst, het geeft wel een mooi overzicht van welke tabakssoorten/blends/mixtures er nu allemaal zijn:


My Tobacco Classification / Touchstone Blends

There are as many ways to classify pipe tobacco blends as there are pipe smokers, and then some. However, I have found the following list suits me. I see tobacco blends for the pipe smoker divided into 16 categories. An alternative, earlier, classification was provided by the Pipe Club of Norfolk UK, from which some of the categories originated. However, since this early list, a number of new categories have arisen, such as the Cigar Leaf Blends. Also, a number of pipe smokers have advocated against the terms “English Blends” and “Balkan Blends”, as many tobacco blends actually span the two and there really exists a continuum of sorts. So the terms "English Blends" and "Balkan Blends" have been dropped by many, in favor of the more descriptive terms "Latakia Mixtures", which in turn is divided into "Light / Medium" and "Medium / Full".

I am aware that this is a highly subjective exercise. And it is to be expected that everyone will have a different take on what constitutes a Touchstone Blend. Also, there will be "lumpers" and "splitters" - that is, those who feel there are too many categories and those who feel the need to split even more. What I hoped to do here, for myself really, was to set up a series of benchmark blends that I could later use as "standards" by which to judge future blends within a category. It is hoped that these lists will provide a jumping off point to begin exploring the wonderful world of pipe tobaccos for others as well.

(Note: The homepage Kohlhase & Kopp says "Kentucky-Virginia-Perique". Flake rubbed by hand). Note: Many consider this at the top end of the light Virginia Flake Blend, rather than as a full.

Pease, USA. “A blended, sliced cake of high-grade flue cured leaf, from beautiful, sweet brights to deep, earthy reds, without the added sugars and flavorings common to many Virginia flakes. It's rich on the palate, evolving in layers with the clean, natural sweetness of pure tobaccos. It offers a pleasant room note, and a delightful finish.

Personal Reserve: Blackwoods Flake. McClelland Tobacco Company, USA. “The characteristic, natural sweetness of mellow, Red Virginias mingles inextricably with the richness and inherently spicy aroma of Black Stoved Virginias in this doubly aged red and black all-Virginia cake mixture.

Packaging: 50g & 100g tin.

Personal Reserve: Dark Star. McClelland Tobacco Company, USA. “Years before tinning, this tobacco begins as bright yellow, sugary top grade Virginia and Carolina leaf. Through careful triple aging, pressing and stoving, it becomes rich, cool and dark. A seductively spicy aroma develops during the extended maturing process to complement the complex flavor of this concentrated, smooth broken flake, which is easily rubbed out to suit any occasion”. Curing Group: Air Cured. Contents: Virginia. Cut: Broken Flake. Packaging: 50g & 100g tin.

4. Virginia Plugs –

Cut Virginia Plug. Fribourg & Treyer, DE. “ A full bodied, medium to full strength pressed flake. Very complex from start to finish with a well balanced taste that both boldly spicy and subtlety sweet”. Curing Group: Air Cured. Contents: Virginia. Cut: Flake. Packaging: 50g tin.

New World Collection: JackKnife Plug. G. L. Pease, USA. “JackKnife Plug - dark-fired Kentucky leaf and ripe red Virginia tobaccos, with their deep, earthy flavors, are layered on a central core of golden flue-cured for a hint of bright sweetness, then pressed and matured in cakes, and finally cut into 2oz blocks. Slice it thick and rub it out for a ribbon cut, thin for a shag, or chop it into cubes. The choice is yours”. Curing Group: Flue Cured. Kentucky, Virginia. Cut: Plug. Packaging: 2oz tin. Introduced in January, 2011.

New World Collection: Triple Play. G. L. Pease, USA. “Ripe red and bright flue-cured tobaccos are joined by piquant Acadian Perique and a balanced measure of smoky dark-fired Kentucky.

Cut: Plug. Packaging: 2oz bar. Introduced in May, 2011.

Peterson's Perfect Plug. Peterson, IE. Blender: Kohlhase, Kopp & Co. “This excellent plug tobacco comprises selected Virginia leaf from Africa and Brazil blended with Burley leaf from Malawi. The tobaccos are lightly cased before drying and pressing and then are heated and stored for 2 weeks before cutting. The result is a full bodied yet fruity blend, sure to appeal to the experienced pipesmoker”. Curing Group: Air Cured. Contents: Burley, Virginia. Cut: Plug. Packaging: 50g tin.

Kendal Plug. Samuel Gawith, UK. “Whoever knows Samuel Gawith knows their famous Kendal Plug. The tobacco has a naturally sweet smell, and when burning it produces a very pleasant aroma. The taste tends to be sweetish, particularly at the beginning, and then slowly the sweetness gives some way to a whole range of taste variations, all very pleasant. It burns so slowly and evenly. A very satisfying smoke”. Curing Group: Flue Cured. Cut: Plug. Note: This may be better placed in the Lakeland category.


5. Virginia Ropes and Twists –

Black Irish Twist. Gawith, Hoggarth, & Co., UK. “All our twist tobacco varieties are manufactured by the same spinning process using dark fired wrapper leaves. The filler is again, predominantly dark fired leaf with the addition of a small percentage of dark air cured Indian leaf. They are therefore strong tobaccos. Black Twist, because the cooking process removes some of the stronger tar and nicotine elements, provides a milder smoke than the brown twist”. Curing Group: Flue Cured. Contents: Virginia. Cut: Rope. Packaging: Bulk.

Black XXX Rope. Samuel Gawith, UK. “This tobacco is not for the faint of heart. Strong and robust smoke”. Curing Group: Air Cured. Contents: Virginia. Cut: Rope. Packaging: Bulk

Brown Rope No. 4. Samuel Gawith, UK. “Twisted forms of aged dark brown leaf. Enormous flavor aroma and strength tamed with slow puffing”. Curing Group: Air Cured. Cut: Rope. Packaging: 50 g tin or Bulk.

Sweet Rum Twist. Gawith, Hoggarth, & Co., UK. “This is a twist made from the same ingredients as the Black and Brown Irish X. It has additional Rum flavoring added during manufacture. Again, this is a very strong tobacco as it does not undergo the pressure cooking process”. Curing Group: Air Cured. Contents: Virginia. Flavoring: Rum. Cut: Rope. Packaging: Bulk. Note: This could well be placed as a Lakeland.


6. Lakeland Style –

Best Brown Flake. Samuel Gawith, UK. “A firm favourite for the pipe smoker looking for a medium strength, gentle and slow burning tobacco. Manufactured using hand-stripped flue cured Virginias with no flavours added. Best Brown will reward with a cool, sweet smoke with a delectable aroma and good sidestream. Mild to medium”. Curing Group: Flue Cured. Contents: Virginia. Cut: Flake. Packaging: 50g Tin.

Broken Scotch Cake. Gawith, Hoggarth, & Co., UK.”A very mild blend, using predominantly flue-cured Virginia, but with the addition of some sun-cured both to cool and sweeten the smoke. A rough-cut into very coarse pieces also contributes to cooling the smoke”. Curing Group: Flue Cured. Contents: Virginia. Cut: Coarse Cut. Packaging: 50g tin & Bulk.

Dark Birdseye. Gawith, Hoggarth, & Co., UK. “Manufactured from Dark tobacco 'whole leaf' rather than strips, the mid-rib (or stem) gives the 'birds eye' effect when cut. A strong smoke which was particularly favored by the fishermen as the finer cut meant the tobacco was easier to light and to keep-in on board ship when the weather was bad”. Curing Group: Flue Cured. Contents: Virginia. Cut: Ribbon. Packaging: Bulk.

Ennerdale Flake. Gawith, Hoggarth & Co., UK. “Our best selling flake by a wide margin. Predominately virginia leaf from Brazil, Zimbabwe and Malawi (86%) but with the addition of sun cured Malawi (10%) to add sweetness, strength and to cool the smoke and Malawi Burley (4%) to "carry the flavour" in addition to its cooling and strength qualities. (Burley is very good at absorbing casings and flavours) A background flavour of Almond is enhanced with the addition of fruit flavours, vanilla, and the special 'English type' flavours which give this tobacco its distinctive, yet typical 'English' Aroma associated with the UK best selling brands such as Condor, St Bruno and mellow Virginia”. Curing Group: Air Cured. Contents: Burley, Virginia. Flavoring: Fruit / Citrus, Almond, Vanilla. Cut: Flake. Packaging: 50g tin, Bulk.

Bob's Chocolate Flake. Gawith, Hoggarth, & Co., UK. “The main characteristics of this flake come from the 8% Latakia included in the blend and the smooth chocolate aroma. Brazilian, Zimbabwe, Malawi virginia leaf make up 82% of the blend providing a mild/Medium smoke cooled with the addition of 8% Malawi sun cured and 2% Malawi Burley. The latakia cools but does also add strength and aroma. The cocoa casings and chocolate top flavours are rounded off with vanillas and other flavours providing sweet notes”. Curing Group: Air Cured. Contents: Burley, Virginia, Latakia. Flavoring: Alcohol / Liquor, Cocoa / Chocolate, Vanilla. Cut: Flake. Packaging: 50 tin & bulk.

Rum Flake. Gawith, Hoggarth, & Co., UK. “The 'Christmas cake' of all our tobaccos. A very rich, sweet fully flavoured blend. The main feature is the high proportion of naturally sweet sun-cured tobaccos in the blend - over 40% Only 30% Virginia leaf, with the rest of the blend coming from burleys and Dark-air cured contribute to a strong, but rewarding smoke. The whole blend is cased in maple sugars to further enhance the natural sweetness of the sun cured leaf and then rounded off with a dash of rum”. Curing Group: Air Cured. Contents: Burley, Virginia. Flavoring: Rum, Maple. Cut: Broken Flake. Packaging: 50g tis & bulk.


7. Virginia / Kentucky Blends –

660: Silver Flake. Solani, DE. Blender: R.L. Will “An incredible blend of premium dark red and sweet Virginias from the "border belt", light yellow Virginia from South Carolina and dark-fired, spicy Kentucky. Slow burning and because no flavoring has been added, this blend has a real tobacco taste”. Curing Group: Air Cured. Contents: Kentucky, Virginia. Cut: Flake. Packaging: 50g & 100g tin.

Three Nuns Original. Bell's. Blender: Orlik Tobacco Company A/S, DK. “A blend of dark fired and sun cured tobaccos mixed with the finest Brazilian Lights to produce the unique flavour and mellow smoking characteristics for which Three Nuns is famous”. Curing Group: Flue Cured. Contents: Kentucky, Virginia. Cut: Curly Cut. Packaging: 50 or 100g tins. Note: In the original formula, from Imperial Tobacco, Three Nuns was a VA-PER mixture.

Original Mixtures: Cumberland. G. L. Pease, USA. “Robust and possessing a subdued sweetness, Cumberland is a delightfully orchestrated suite of American tobaccos, featuring a rare and exquisite mahogany Kentucky, aged in bales for twenty years. Red and matured Virginias establish a theme; the Kentucky and a pianissimo of Perique create the variations. Pure, natural tobacco flavors are harmonized by delicate arpeggios and underscored by deep, resonant tones. The coda is lovely and lingering - a perfect finish to a rich performance. Best savored slowly”. Curing Group: Flue Cured. Contents: Kentucky, Virginia, Perique. Cut: Coarse Cut. Packaging: 2oz & 8oz tin. Introduced in April, 2002. Note: An unusual blend that is not really a touchstone for this category.


8. Virginia / Burley Blends –

Golden Sliced (Red). Orlik Tobacco Company A/S, DK. “A delightful blend of golden and full body Virginibesta tobaccos with a touch of Burley. A fine natural sweetness in taste and aroma characterizes Orlik Golden Sliced. The cut is the traditional Navy Cut Flake i.e. pressed tobacco and cut into slices. Rub the tobacco slices gently before filling your pipe". Curing Group: Flue Cured. Contents: Burley, Virginia. Cut: Flake. Packaging: 50g Pouch, 50g & 100g tins.

Long Golden Flake (No. 71). Reiner, DE. Blender: R.L. Will. “A very special blend of golden Virginias, a little "white" Burley, and a touch of Perique to make things interesting.

University Flake. Peterson, IE. Blender: Kohlhase, Kopp & Co. “Originally manufactured in Ireland by Murray, and now manufactured in Germany by Kohlhase & Kopp. The new tin description reads "An easy smoking blend of fine Virginias and Burley tobaccos, made the traditional way." Curing Group: Air Cured. Contents: Burley, Virginia. Flavoring: Plum. A light, berry-like top dressing applied that is evident in the smoke. The K&H website describes it as "pflaume" which is the German word for plum. Cut: Flake. Packaging: 50g Tin.

Original Mixtures: Barbary Coast. G. L. Pease, USA. “The finest cube-cut Burley, chosen for its deep, nutty flavors, forms a robust foundation for this sophisticated blend. Rich, red Virginia tobaccos are added for their subtle sweetness and complexity, while the unique spice of Perique provides added dimension. A delicate kiss of Brandy polishes the blend to a perfect finish. Barbary Coast is delightfully satisfying, with hints of black walnut, dark chocolate, and dried fruits. The perfect "all-day" smoke”! Curing Group: Sun Cured. Contents: Burley, Virginia, Perique. Flavoring: Brandy. Cut: Cube cut. Packaging: 2oz & 8oz tin. Introduced in March, 2001. Note: The addition of a brandy casing and a component of Perique make this an unusual blend – a type of aromatic burley.

Stonehaven. Esoterica Tobacciana, J.F. Germain & Son, UK. “A marriage of air-cured leaf and Burley with selected dark Virginia. Hard pressed and aged to produce brown flakes with dark undertones. A traditional English flake favored by experienced pipe smokers”. Curing Group: Air Cured. Contents: Burley, Virginia. Cut: Flake. Packaging: 8oz bag. Note: A highly atypical blend - definitely not a touchstone blend for the category. Included here to illustrate the absolute limits of the style. An oddball and an "envelope pusher" - but worth trying when available.

Carter Hall. John Middleton, Inc., USA. “Burley blended smoking mixture”. Curing Group:Air Cured. Contents: Burley, Virginia. Cut: Ribbon. Packaging: 1.5oz Pouch.

Burley London Blend. Mac Baren, DK. “Introduced in 1965 and consists mainly of carefully selected Burley tobaccos. Just a little Virginia has been added to give the blend a natural sweetness. You will notice the slight natural chocolate note, which is found in all good Burley tobacco. The very special top flavor in combination with the tobaccos gives you a very distinct smoking pleasure”.

10. Virginia / Perique Blends –

Escudo Navy Deluxe. Peter Stokkebye, DK. “A combination of full bodied Virginia from North Carolina and Virginia blended with Perique from Louisiana are the cornerstones in Escudo. The blend is pressed and matured before it is spun and cut into coins. This process ensures the unique character of Escudo. 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, with the original presses.

It is all a handcrafted process from selecting the best tobacco, blending, rolling, cutting, and packing. The result is an unparalleled smoking experience”. Curing Group: Air Cured. Contents: Black Cavendish, Virginia, Perique. Cut: Curly Cut. Packaging: Bulk.

633 Virginia Flake with Perique. Solani, DE. Blender: R.L. Will. “A matured virginia, pressed flake, with premium perique”. Curing Group: Air Cured. Contents: Virginia, Perique. Cut: Flake. Packaging: 50g tin.

Bayou Morning Flake. Cornell & Diehl, USA. Blender: Bob Runowski. “Bayou Morning Flake is a much different tobacco from original bayou Morning. This is a very dark brown crumbly flake.

Fog City Selection: Fillmore. G. L. Pease, USA. “A thick-sliced, broken flake in the Scottish tradition.

11. Virginia / Perique / Burley Blends –

Original Mixtures: Haddo's Delight. G. L. Pease, USA. “Haddo's Delight is a stout blend of several Virginia tobaccos with a generous measure of long-cut Perique. Unflavored Green River black Cavendish and a little air-cured white Burley ribbon provide fullness, body, and a bit of extra strength. Finally, an exclusive process darkens and marries the mixture, and gives the blend a subtle tin aroma of cocoa and dried fruit. The flavor is full on the palate, earthy, slightly sweet and intriguingly piquant, with overtones of figs and raisins. A wonderful blend for the Perique lover”! Curing Group: Air Cured. Contents: Burley, Black Cavendish, Virginia, Perique. Cut: Ribbon. Packaging: 2oz, 8oz & 16 oz tins. Introduced in August, 2000.

Contents: Burley, Virginia, Perique. Cut: Ribbon. Packaging: Bulk. Note: some may place this blend in the Virginia / Burley Blend category on account of the heavy influence of the burley, but the inclusion of Perique brings it here.


12. Virginia / Oriental Blends –

Original Mixtures: Cairo. G. L. Pease, USA. “Cairo is a wonderfully complex mixture of red, orange and bright Virginia tobaccos, exotic oriental leaf, and just a whisper of Perique. The flavor is naturally sweet, slightly nutty, delicately spicy and rich. Subtle citrus-like notes harmoniously support the more robust flavors of the darker Virginias. A medium-bodied tobacco with a delicate aroma, Cairo will satisfy Virginia lovers and the connoisseur of oriental mixtures alike”. Curing Group: Air Cured. Contents: Virginia, Perique, Oriental. Cut: Ribbon. Packaging: 2 & 8 oz tins. Introduced March, 2000. Note: Due to the presence of Perique, some may wish to acknowledge this as a Virginia / Perique Blend, however to my palate the Perique is a very insignificant component to this blend.

Fog City Selection: Embarcadero. G. L. Pease, USA. “Rich, ripe red virginias are combined with top-grade Izmir leaf, pressed and aged in cakes, then sliced into flakes and tinned. The result is a wonderfully fragrant, natural blend with subdued sweetness, more "brut" than "demi-sec", delightful toasty flavors, and hints of nuttiness and roasted coffee. Satisfying and refreshing; a comforting smoke, with enough complexity to keep it interesting”. Curing Group: Air Cured. Contents: Virginia, Turkish (Izmir Leaf). Cut: Coarse Cut.

Cut: Ribbon. Packaging: 50g & 100g tin.

Oriental No. 40. Peretti, USA. “A blend entirely made of tobaccos from the Near East. It has richness and full flavor”. Curing Group: Air Cured. Contents: Virginia, Oriental, Turkish. Cut: Ribbon. Packaging: Bulk.


13. Light / Medium Latakia Mixtures –

Original Mixtures: Caravan. G. L. Pease, USA. “Rich, smoky Cyprian Latakia and a variety of wonderful Oriental tobaccos set the stage for the blend. Lemon and Red Virginias provide support, while adding a hint of sweetness. Finally, just a touch of air cured leaf is added for body. Caravan is full and exotic; rich and spicy. A classic Balkan style blend with our own special touch”. Curing Group: Fire Cured. Contents: Burley, Virginia, Latakia, Oriental. Cut: Ribbon. Packaging: 2 & 8oz tins. Note: Because of the presence of Latakia, GL Pease's Caravan is placed here in the “Light / Medium Latakia” category, however, to my palate, the Latakia presence is subservient to the Virginias and Orientals which predominate, which could lead some to place this as an "Virginia / Oriental Blend".

Fog City Selection: Ashbury. G. L. Pease, USA. “An alluring assortment of exotic oriental tobaccos is generously blended with bright and red Virginia leaf. Finally, just enough Cyprus Latakia is added to provide an alluring smokiness, resulting in a tobacco that can best be described as a light-medium Balkan mixture. This is the blend for gentlemen with a Bohemian spirit and a sense of adventure”. Curing Group: Air Cured. Contents: Virginia, Latakia, Oriental. Cut: Coarse Cut. Packaging: 2oz Tin. Released in October, 2005.

Old London Series: Chelsea Morning. G. L. Pease, USA. “Sweet red and bright Virginias, fragrant orientals, a bit of rich Cyprus Latakia, and just a pinch of Perique. The leaf is blended in layers, briefly pressed, then sliced and tumbled into ribbons. Lively and engaging, with a subtle fruitiness, and an elegant, creamy texture, it's a great bowl to accompany the morning cup”. Curing Group: Flue Cured. Contents: Virginia, Latakia, Perique, Oriental. Cut: Ready Rubbed. Packaging: 2oz & 8oz tins. Introduced in October, 2009.

Classic Collection: Blackpoint. G. L. Pease, USA. “Blackpoint is a luxurious blend of red and lemon Virginias, Cyprian Latakia, exotic oriental tobaccos, and a perfect measure of Louisiana perique for a lively, piquant finish. The smoke is creamy and lingering, engaging the palate with a mouth-filling array of wonderful flavours. Reminiscent of raisins and stewed figs, fireplaces in the fall, walks in the forest... Perhaps the most complex in the collection. Perfect for evenings”. Curing Group: Flue Cured. Contents: Virginia, Latakia, Perique, Orienta. Cut: Ribbon. Packaging: 2oz & 8oz tins. Released in March, 2003.

Classic Collection: Kensington. G. L. Pease, USA. “Kensington is a Balkan style blend with restraint. Bright and red Virginias are combined with richly flavoured leaf from the orient and Cyprian Latakia in perfect measure for a wonderfully balanced smoke. Slightly sweeter than Charing Cross, and not quite as full due to a more delicate hand with the Latakia. Spicy, with an occasional suggestion of orange blossom. Complex, but never ponderous. A slightly lighter variant of the classic style”. Curing Group: Flue Cured. Contents: Virginia, Latakia, Oriental. Cut: Ribbon. Packaging: 2oz &, 8oz tins. Released in March, 2003.

Dunhill London Mixture. Orlik Tobacco Company A/S, DK. “Skillfully blended Latakia with Virgina and Turkish. Pleasant aroma and a flavor never tiring”. Curing Group: Air Cured. Contents: Virginia, Latakia, Turkish. Cut: Ribbon. Packaging: 50g Tin. Previously released by Murray's and Sons, UK.

Dunhill Standard Mixture Medium. Orlik Tobacco Company A/S, DK. “Latakia, Orientals, East Carolina and Georgian, all lightly toasted. A slightly heavier companion to DUNHILL's Standard Mixture Mild. Traditional English”. Curing Group: Flue Cured. Contents: Virginia, Latakia, Oriental. Cut: Ribbon. Packaging: 50g Tin. Previously released by Murray's and Sons, UK.

And So To Bed. Esoterica Tobacciana, J.F. Germain & Son, UK. “Finest grade Virginia and Maryland type tobaccos are carefully aged and blended with Greek Oriental" leaf and top-grade Cyprian Latakia. The blend is then specially processed and additionally matured to produce a mellow full strength smoke with rich flavor and unique aroma”. Curing Group: Air Cured. Contents: Burley, Virginia, Latakia, Oriental, Maryland. Cut: Ribbon. Packaging: 50g Tin.

Margate. Esoterica Tobacciana, J.F. Germain & Son, UK. “A classical English mixture done in the "old style" of many of the fine tobaccos that have now disappeared from the market place. Choice Orientals and generous quantities of premium Cyprian Latakia keynote this rich, full bodied blend. A well balanced, robust and eminently satisfying smoke”. Curing Group: Air Cured. Contents: Latakia, Oriental. Cut: Ribbon. Packaging: 50g Tin, 8oz. Note: This blend could just as easily be placed in the “Medium / Full Latakia Mixture”, however, to my palate, the Orientals ride over the Latakia here.

Squadron Leader. Samuel Gawith, UK. “Bright and Dark Virginias blended together with Latakia and Turkish leaf to make this a cool medium bodied smoke”. Curing Group: Air Cured. Contents: Virginia, Latakia, Turkish. Cut: Ribbon. Packaging: 50g Tin. Note: I have placed this blend here, rather than under Virginia / Oriental Blends, because of the presence of the Latakia component.

Bald Headed Teacher. 4noggins, USA. Blender: Rich Gottlieb. “The old-fashioned burley taste comes through in full form, nutty and brisk, hitting on tangy notes along the way as the Virginia components catch on. There's just enough Latakia to provide no more than perhaps a seasoning effect”. Curing Group: Air Cured. Contents: Burley, Virginia, Latakia. Cut: Ribbon. Packaging: Bulk. Note: Some may place this blend in the Virginia / Burley Blend category, however, the presence of Latakia suggests a Light / Medium Latakia Mixture placement.

101: Morley's Best. Cornell & Diehl, USA. Blender: Bob Runowski. “This is a combination of three Burleys (rough cut, white & cubed), Virginia flake and Cyprian Latakia”. Blend Notes: Reminiscent of old original Blue Boar blend. Curing Group: Air Cured. Contents: Burley, Virginia, Latakia. Cut: Coarse cube cut. Packaging: Bulk. Note: Some may place this blend in the Virginia / Burley Blend category, however, the presence of Latakia suggests a Light / Medium Latakia Mixture placement.


14. Medium / Full Latakia Mixtures –

066. Star of the East. Cornell & Diell, USA. “One half Latakia with a generous portion of Turkish and sweetened with stoved red Virginia”. Curing Group: Air Cured. Contents: Virginia, Latakia, Turkish. Cut: Ribbon. Packaging: Bulk

Heirloom Collection: Westminster. G.L. Pease, USA. “The very essence of the traditional English mixture; rich, elegant, refined, and exquisitely balanced. New World red Virginias are enhanced with a gentle caress of bright leaf, then lavishly seasoned with rich oriental tobaccos and generous measures of noble Cyprus mountain Latakia. Westminster is a satisfying blend, presenting layers of flavor to delight the senses and develop in the bowl. A perfect everyday English mixture. Full-bodied”. Curing Group: Fire Cured. Contents: Virginia, Latakia, Orientas. Cut: Ribbon. Packaging: 2oz & 8oz tins. Introduced in January, 2007. Note: A detailed review of the blend has been posted at Luxury Tobacco Reviews.

Released in January, 2002.

Classic Collection: Abingdon. GL Pease, USA. “Abingdon is the fullest Balkan style blend in the range. It is rich and robust, powerful and forthright, yet still possessing subtlety and finesse. Dark flavors of wood and leather mingle with delicate undercurrents of sweetness, and deep earthy notes, while the oriental tobaccos provide hints of their verdant, sometimes herbaceous character. A big Balkan blend, reminding us once more of what these blends used to be. Because of the high percentage of dark and oriental tobaccos, it's recommended to pack Abingdon a little less firmly than you might a lighter blend”. Curing Group: Fire Cured. Contents: Virginia, Latakia, Oriental, Turkish. Cut: Ribbon. Packaging: 2oz & 8oz tins. Released in July, 2003.

Classic Collection: Charing Cross. G.L. Pease, USA. “Charing Cross is a traditional Balkan style blend of fine Virginia leaf, richly seasoned with smoky Cyprian Latakia, and spiced with the exquisite and exotic tobaccos of the orient. This is the one for Latakia lovers. Hints of roasted cocoa beans, orange zest, green pepper and campfires. This is the big one - fuller than Blackpoint, and a little less sweet”. Curing Group: Flue Cured. Contents: Virginia, Latakia, Orienta. Cut: Ribbon. Packaging: 2oz & 8oz tins. Released in March, 2003.

Frog Morton. McClelland Tobacco Company. “An exceptionally dark, rich and full Latakia Mixture designed for those who desire really satisfying Latakia flavor but want a pipe tobacco soft enough to smoke anytime.

Commonwealth Mixture. Samuel Gawith, UK. “Tin Description: 50% heavily steamed Virginia & 50% Cyprus Latakia, gives honor to the Tobacco Lords of Glasgow & the Commonwealth of Virginia. Made in England”. Curing Group: Air Cured. Contents: Virginia, Latakia. Cut: Broken Flake. Packaging: 50g Tin.

Contents: Virginia, Latakia, Oriental. Cut: Ribbon. Packaging: 50g Tin. Note: The history of Balkan Sasieni Smoking Mixtures begins almost a hundred years ago and this fine tobacco draws its roots directly from that family of tobaccos.

Packaging: 50g Tin.

Penzance. Esoterica Tobacciana, J.F. Germain & Son, UK. “A wonderful complex secret recipe of the finest Virginia, choice Turkish and Orientals and Cyprian Latakia, all hand blended together, hard pressed and broad cut into thick flakes.

Original Mixtures: Robusto. G. L. Pease, USA. “The chocolate brown wrapper leaf would make an overly bold statement if blended with a heavy hand, but if just the right amount is used, it provides an alluring spice, a suggestion of the richness of a great cigar, and a creamy texture to the smoke. A little Cyprian Latakia rounds out the flavors, and smoothes the edges just enough. Ripe, red Virginia leaf provides s a modest sweetness while giving a backbone to the body. A variety of oriental tobaccos fill in the gaps. Robusto is complex, full flavored and spicy, yet very gentle on the tongue. It's perfect with the afternoon coffee, as a delicious finish to a wonderful meal, or as a stout companion throughout the day”. Curing Group: Flue Cured. Contents: Virginia, Latakia, Oriental, Cigar Leaf. Cut: Coarse Cut. Packaging: 2oz & 8oz tin. Introduced in November, 2002.

Black. Sillem's, Germany. “Extravagant is the right word to characterize this mixture. We have revolutionized the traditional old English art of blending. The main ingredient is the finest spicy smoky Latakia. By adding highly aromatic Black Cavendish, this blend becomes smoother. A small portion of Burley gives a slight toasted aroma, and a pinch of bright Virginia brings a subtle sweet note. Mellow, but yet full-bodied aromas of honey and fruit essences result in a unique flavor. This tobacco will surely be a delight”. Curing Group: Air Cured.

1792 Flake. Samuel Gawith, UK. “Full strength, mellow tobacco comprising a blend of dark-fired Tanzanian leaf. Made in England”. Curing Group: Fire Cured. Contents: Virginia. Flavoring: Tonquin Bean. Cut: Flake. Packaging: 50g Tin. Blend Notes: This is a full strength, mellow tobacco comprising a blend of dark fired Tanzanian leaf. It is Gawith's best-selling premium grade flake. It starts as 7 lbs. of hand stripped leaf and goes through a steaming process prior to being pressed. The cake, having been prepared, is wrapped in a select leaf and packed by hand into a 12 inch square. This cake is pressed and left for a minimum of two hours. Then, the pressed cake is placed into a steam press where it is baked at full heat for two to three hours. The baked cake has then taken on 1792's characteristic rich, dark color. It's hardening occurs during cooling. Once the process of cutting the flake and adding a tonquin flavor is carried out, hand wrapping and packing finalizes 1792, making it ready for rubbing into your pipe. Also sold as Cob Flake in Europe. Note: An atypical aromatic. Included here, not as a touchstone, but, to illustrate an extreme of the category.

Ik heb je proefpakketjes nagezocht en vooral bij het virginia pakket zitten een paar interessante dingen waaronder een paar virginia-perique tabakken. Het is misschien wel erg ver gezocht maar Huub en jij hebben dezelfde smaak qua pijpen. Zouden jullie ook dezelfde smaak hebben qua tabak? Huub houdt erg van virginia-perique. Ben eens benieuwd!

Vandaag was ik in de grote leeszaal van de universiteitsbibliotheek van Leuven. Ik heb maar van de gelegenheid gebruik gemaakt om in allerlei oudere encyclopedieën het lemma tabak op te zoeken. Een paar dingen die me opgevallen zijn (die misschien voor velen of de meesten hier oud nieuws zullen zijn, maar goed):

- Oudere Nederlandstalige encyclopedieën vermelden onder soorten geen Burley. Tegelijk vermelden ze wel 'Kentucky' als een belangrijke soort. Zou het kunnen dat Burley in onze contreien vroeger consequent Kentucky werd genoemd? Dat is natuurlijk giswerk van mijn kant want niet historisch of linguïstisch onderbouwd, maar het kan wel het volgende verklaren. Ik heb eens ergens gelezen (maar ik weet niet meer waar) dat er onduidelijkheid is over de oorsprong van Semois, met name of het nu Burley- of Kentuckyzaad is dat aan de basis ligt. Iemand zou tegen Vincent Manil gezegd hebben dat hij er zeker van was dat Semois van Burley afstamt, maar meneer Manil zou hem hebben afgesnauwd in de trant van: het is Kentucky, dat heeft men mij altijd verteld, en ik zal het toch wel weten zeker. - Als echter voor wat nu Burley genoemd wordt vroeger het woord Kentucky gebruikt werd (en dus omgekeerd ook de tabak die wij nu Kentucky noemen niet strikt dezelfde is als degene die vroeger zo genoemd werd), dan ligt het voor de hand te denken dat de hele zaak op een misverstand berust. Vincent Manil is natuurlijk geen Nederlandstalige maar ik ga er even vanuit dat het in het Frans van hetzelfde laken een pak is.

- Baaitabak was oorspronkelijk gewoon Marylandtabak. Dat wist ik niet.

- Winkler Prins heeft het lemma over tabak vaak gewoon letterlijk overgenomen van de vorige editie

- en dat vind ik een beetje spijtig want ik had nu juist gehoopt meer te weten te komen over de mysterieuze Varinastabak. Ooit blijkbaar in heel Europa bejubeld en dan zonder duidelijk spoor verdwenen. Ik herinner mij toch dat ik vroeger al eens op internet hier informatie over heb proberen te vinden, maar ik vond alleen dat er tot ver in de twintigste eeuw nog tabak verkocht werd die Varinas heette, maar dat er in Barinas in Venezuela al vele decennia geen tabak meer verbouwd werd (laat staan dat hij nog in kanasters werd gestopt). Ik was dus tot de veronderstelling overgegaan dat het met de Varinas die tot in de jaren 80 verkocht werd ongeveer zo gesteld was als met sommige tabaken die zich Semois noemen maar het niet bevatten, en dat het spul waarschijnlijk al lang niet meer hetzelfde smaakte als de tabak waar naar het schijnt Kierkegaard kilo's van rookte. Maar ik had gehoopt in de encyclopedieën meer uitleg te vinden over waarom (en wanneer) de productie gestopt is. Ergens in de leeszaal zal die informatie wel verstopt zitten, ik moet de volgende keer maar wat beter zoeken.

- in 1910 werd snuiftabak als schadelijk voor de gezondheid beschouwd, maar kauwtabak niet.

O ja, als deze post hier misplaatst is mag hij natuurlijk door de moderatoren ergens anders naartoe verplaatst worden
Love makes men sail from shore to shore, so doth tobacco.

Burley komt uit Kentucky, Bracken County om precies te zijn (https://dutchpipesmoker.wordpress.com/2013/03/03/beloved-burley/). En Kentucky is de naam voor fire-cured burley (https://dutchpipesmoker.wordpress.com/2015/02/13/curing-is-the-cure/) Kentucky is geen tabakssoort op zich, het is een variant, een bewerking van burley. Dus Semois is echt gewoon burley.. (https://dutchpipesmoker.wordpress.com/2013/03/19/sunny-semois/) Maar Manil beweert inderdaad dat het Kentucky is omdat het zaad komt uit Kentucky.. Ik heb een stukje uit een Youtube video met Manil wat iemand vertaald heeft naar het Engels:

First thing that strikes me is Sunday afternoon and yet there is an up-and-coming clients. After a quick tour of pretty small store, I see that the master of the house is alone behind the counter. I wish to explain to him that I really wanted to talk to him in the hope of finally having the answer to two questions that haunt me for years. Impatient, so I start to question my interlocutor: In your book you say that semois is made from plants kentucky. What do you mean exactly by kentucky? The answer is brief: well! tobacco from Kentucky! look planter betrayed his astonishment.. It must be said that this question is not exactly conspicuous by its intelligence. Undaunted, I continued: Okay, but tobacco that made the historical fame of Kentucky is burley. Called in kentucky America is the "dark fire-cured burley" burley to dark color. It even happens that tobacco dried over fires or that the roasts. Kentucky is therefore not a separate species, but it is defined by his or her treatment. Therefore, plants kentucky introduced in 1855 in the valley of the Semois by Joseph Pierret were, in my opinion, nothing more than burley and therefore the semois while it is typical with its particular soil, mists Ardennes and roasting it undergoes is burley. That said, and this is where things get complicated, whereas according to an authority as Greg Pease, kentucky is a variant of Burley and other sources such as Italian Toscano cigar manufacturers mention of real tobacco variety called kentucky. So I want to know once and for all what plants you use. It was long, but I had quite exposed the problem and now I finally know. Safe source. Manil, he obviously does not exactly share my excitement. He looks at me like I was a Martian. This is kentucky, he replied dryly. I do not know any more! This is the cold shower. Ice. Yet Vincent made an effort to get some old brochures, but we find it not the answer. This leaves me little hope one day to unveil this mystery.


sim schreef:- en dat vind ik een beetje spijtig want ik had nu juist gehoopt meer te weten te komen over de mysterieuze Varinastabak. Ooit blijkbaar in heel Europa bejubeld en dan zonder duidelijk spoor verdwenen. Ik herinner mij toch dat ik vroeger al eens op internet hier informatie over heb proberen te vinden, maar ik vond alleen dat er tot ver in de twintigste eeuw nog tabak verkocht werd die Varinas heette, maar dat er in Barinas in Venezuela al vele decennia geen tabak meer verbouwd werd (laat staan dat hij nog in kanasters werd gestopt). Ik was dus tot de veronderstelling overgegaan dat het met de Varinas die tot in de jaren 80 verkocht werd ongeveer zo gesteld was als met sommige tabaken die zich Semois noemen maar het niet bevatten, en dat het spul waarschijnlijk al lang niet meer hetzelfde smaakte als de tabak waar naar het schijnt Kierkegaard kilo's van rookte. Maar ik had gehoopt in de encyclopedieën meer uitleg te vinden over waarom (en wanneer) de productie gestopt is. Ergens in de leeszaal zal die informatie wel verstopt zitten, ik moet de volgende keer maar wat beter zoeken.


Upper Ten had een voortreffelijke Varinas die ik ooit heb mogen roken van forumlid Upper Ten. Verder weet ik er niets van..

Maar mooi researchwerk, ga zo door! :)

Herinner je nog iets van de smaak, Arno? Waarmee zou je hem het best kunnen vergelijken?

Eerlijk gezegd is het al even geleden, in mijn begintijd heb ik ooit een sample gehad. Qua smaak weet ik het niet meer echt, weet nog wel dat het een zachte, romige tabak was. Beetje baaiachtig maar ook weer niet. Op de een of andere manier zit er een lichte overeenkomst met de Martin Langue de Chien in mijn hoofd. Maar nogmaals, het is al even geleden dat ik de Upper Ten Varinas heb gerookt. Misschien kan je proberen forumlid Upper Ten een PB te sturen en hem te vragen of hij toevallig een sample voor je heeft.

In z'n algemeenheid heb ik mij wel eens bedacht dat de tabakken van
Upper Ten wellicht tot de beste behoorden die Nederlandse bedrijven
hebben voortgebracht.

Het merk is nooit op de voorgrond geraakt en uitsluitend bekend
onder diegenen die kwaliteit wisten te herkennen. Mogelijk was er
geen budget om voldoende reclame te maken, of onderschatte men
het effect ervan.

Daarnaast had het merk een groot aanbod aan tabakken en alles in
pouches. Aangezien de omzetsnelheid laag was, kocht je in de
regel een pakje met uitgedroogde tabak en dat komt het merk
op termijn niet ten goede.

Ingrijpen en iets anders verzinnen (blikjes) is er voor zover ik mij
herinner niet van gekomen.

Nogmaals jammer want hun bedoeling en de liefde voor het vak
was de juiste.

De Upper Ten tabakken zijn er ook in blik geweest Rob. Ik heb nog een aantal lege blikjes bewaard.
Verder in kartonnen bus van 200 gram. Hier heb ik nog een flink aantal van in voorraad.
Echter de bussen Varinas heb ik opgerookt.

Ah, jammer! Ik kan me de Varinas en de Portorico nog licht herinneren die ik heb gehad van je. Eerlijke en kwalitatief echt goede tabakken gemaakt op Nederlandse bodem in Pool's tabaksfabriek in Hoorn. Ik zie me hier nog wel een blogpost over maken :wink:

Nu je dat schrijft Upper Ten begint mij iets te dagen, echter ik
dacht dat lang niet alles ook in blik verkrijgbaar was.

Arno,

Je hebt een jaar of 3 geleden op het forum al eens een goed doorwrocht artikel over Upper Ten tabakken geschreven.
Het zou leuk zijn als je hierover nog eens in je blog op ingaat.

Ik prijs me gelukkig dat ik destijds flink heb ingeslagen. Toen ik in 2010 lid van het forum werd had ik nog 24 kg Upper Ten tabakken
in voorraad. Het staat nog dagelijks op mijn menu. Nu nog 15 kg dus ik kan nog een aantal jaren vooruit.

Rob,
Zover ik kan nagaan waren er ongeveer 8 tot 10 tabakken in blik te koop. 2 a 3 waren ook in pouch verkrijgbaar.
Dit zelfde gold ook voor de 200 grams bussen.
Ik heb eens een lijstje gemaakt van de mij bekende tabakken. Ik kwam uit op 33 verschillende soorten.

Het is jammer dat zoveel forumleden nooit kennis hebben kunnen maken met dit merk.

Als de positieve reacties van de kenners doorgaan kunnen de Upper Ten tabakken nog wel eens dezelfde status krijgen als de
Balkan Sobranie......LOL

Staat op de planning voor in het najaar :) Dan hoop ik ook dat je zoveel mogelijk foto's van verpakkingen voor me wil maken. Ik geef wel een seintje ;)
