Dan Tobacco: Salty Dogs 50g Pipe Tobacco
Product Number: 003-293-0044
Manufactured in a century-old brick building in picturesque Lauenburg, Germany, Dan pipe tobacco has gained quite a worldwide reputation among smokers, with a wide variety of blends and cuts on offer. Andreas Mund became the successor in charge of production when master blender Jürgen Westphal retired, and is assisted by Heiko Behrens as well as Michael Apitz of Dan Pipe.
Salty Dogs is, as its name implies, a classic Navy-style plug: Virginias and a pinch of Perique, flavored with rum, and pressed tight into hard, pocket-sized blocks. It hearkens to how many sailors would transport tobacco, the dense plugs preserving the tobaccos' moisture content and allowing smokers to cut flakes as-needed during long, ocean voyages.
