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

Absolutely worth your time. Very blend I’ve sampled from Drucquer & Sons has been a great smoke and each so very unique from one another. This new one has immediately gone on my top favorites.

This blend is good enough to rewrite a review after the first 100g tin. While at first this was an ok blend by switching pipes around I found that a 1” diameter 1.75” deep Randy Wiley made this blend pop! The complex and wonderful smoke really arose ... Read More

Product: Drucquer & Sons Casbah 100g
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

Product: Drucquer & Sons Casbah 100g
The Casbah is simply the best Balkan there is. I would be incredibly happy if nobody bought it so I could negotiate a bulk purchase of their entire quarterly output. I want all of it.

目前为止抽过的所有英式调配L草中印象最深刻的一款,浓郁的烟熏味,突出酸甜的发酵味共同混合出烟熏酸笋的味道让他在众多英式调配中闲的与众不同
