Drucquer & Sons: Casbah 100g Pipe Tobacco

Product Number: 003-756-0017

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 Carl Ehwa of McClelland and Gregory Pease of G.L. Pease — first plunged their hands into fragrant 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.

Casbah is an expertly blended Balkan-style crumble-plug mixture comprising Red and Bright Virginias, a generous portion of small-leaf Orientals, and a generous helping of deep, smoky Cypriot Latakia. Once blended, the loose mixture is pressed and aged in cakes, then cut into blocks — combining the flavor-enhancing benefits of flake- or plug-cut blends with an easy, straightforward preparation for the pipe. In the tin, Casbah's aromas are opulent and exotic, punctuated by sweet and sour notes with a deep allure of smoky zest. On the palate, the blend is full-bodied yet approachable in flavor and strength, balancing a tangy sweetness with whispers of subtle wood-smoke and a creamy, rounded finish.

Tin note of smoky, mildly sour, and mild fermented sweet. The marbled black, brown and tan Crumble Plug rubs out easily. Tobacco is a little moist but drying isn't needed. Burns slow with a few extra relights. The strength is medium and nic is mild. ... Read More

While maybe not a go to this is a well blended balkan. Mild yet complex enough to enjoy throughout a 100g tin.(update) Well as very few have this proved my initial impression very wrong. The more you smoke the more complex this blend became. In a Ran... Read More

This blend is a nice crumble plug, lights easy, burns to a grey ash with few relights. I do pre cut small blocks from the plug and do try to let it rest in a bowl after rubbing out. Flavor is on offer at all times. A unique sweet nut and smokey stewe... Read More
