Drucquer & Sons: Blairgowrie 200g Pipe Tobacco
Product Number: 003-756-0008
Founded in 1841, Drucquer & Sons was a famed London tobacco shop that relocated to Berkeley, California, in 1928. The shop was more than just a tobacconist though; it was a community. It was where some of the greatest tobacco-blenders in recent memory — like Charl Ehwa of McClelland and Gregory Pease of G.L. Pease — first plunged their hands into flagrant tobacco. The historic shop may be gone, but its rich history and brand of pipe tobaccos continues, reformulated from their original recipes by Gregory Pease (and made by Cornell & Diehl) for the modern smoker.
Created in the classic Scottish blending style and meaning "Plain of Gowrie" in Gaelic — a burgh near Perth, Scotland — Blairgowrie is a robust blend of matured and aged Virginia leaf, fine Orientals, Cypriot Latakia, and Perique. The tobaccos are pressed and aged before being sliced and fully rubbed out for a rich smoking experience. Blairgowrie is rich and full-bodied, providing a balanced English blend that appeals even to those who don't typically prefer mixtures with Latakia.
