Okay, what the hell is a fusilier?
I've just been informed that a fusilier was a soldier who used a long flintlock rifle. It still doesn't make any sense to me, but if the soldiers received this blend as a ration, sign me up!
Years back, there was a popular tobacco called Bengal Slices, but it disappeared quite some time ago. It was a sliced crumble cake that contained Latakia, Virginias, Orientals and a bit of black Cavendish. What really set it apart was the addition of a unique combination of top dressings which made it unique. Hearth & Home's master blender, Russ Ouellette, somehow was able to recreate the flavor and aroma of Bengal Slices in the Hearth & Home Marquee Series' Fusilier's Ration. If you want a bright, smoky blend with a bit of sweetness, grab a tin today.
