John Bull pipe tobacco is about as English as Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, and fish and chips all rolled into one. I kid, but if English style blends are your bag, then it doesn't get a whole lot better than this. John Bull pipe tobacco has quite a nice array of flavor to it, while remaining an all-day puffer. The best part being, it never grows overpowering or bitter. This is achieved by combining a healthy array of mellow Burley, a touch of Black Cavendish, and a generous helping of Latakia. Expect a nutty, slightly sweet, yet well-rounded smoke time and time again.
This tobacco came in a sampler pack. It is not aromatic and if you enjoy strong tobaccos, this is made for you. I prefer milder to medium tobaccos.

I need pipe tobacco. Cigars no so much.

Found you on the web while looking for pipe tobacco. Selection getting pretty thin in town where I live. You guys are obviously in rewhip cigar business, but your catalogues and promotions are entirely devoted to cigars. Fine. You’re good at it. But I’m a pipe smoker with just occasional need for cigar. How about one or two pages in each catalog devoted to pipe tobaccos. Might even enlarge that share of the business. I’ll buy from you. You have prompt, reliable service ;-)
