Drucquer & Sons: Red Lion 100g Pipe Tobacco

Product Number: 003-756-0009

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.

Red Lion is a mellow- to medium-bodied blend based around Bright and Red Virginias, Cypriot Latakia, a bit of toasted Black Cavendish, and just a touch of Burley and Perique. It offers an extremely smooth and balanced smoking experience that is soft on the palate, with a natural caramel-like sweetness and a comfortable, smoky complexity that is both familiar and new. A wonderful all-day English blend, this pipe tobacco was named after the lion's head that appeared on the original Drucquer family crest, and which now graces Drucquer & Sons' tobacco tins.

This is a well executed English blend!

I love the fact that the Latakia is lightly used and the taste is very cohesive. The tobaccos used are of excellent quality. This blend is Virginia forward with the Perique in second position. The Black Cavendish is used to smooth out the blend and t... Read More
Quite The Surprise

Product: Drucquer & Sons Red Lion 100g
I like to refer to this blend as "athletic" because it achieves a somewhat Oriental taste component without actually having that component. This is a Virginia-forward, creamy blend that burns perhaps a bit fast. The Latakia keeps the sweetness in che... Read More

Fast burning tobacco, but a very enjoyable mild English mixture with a nice touch of black cavendish

Another hit out of the park on this blend. Smooth with a hint of Smokey sweetness. The Balance of tobacco’s is spot on and makes for a delectable smoke. Drucquer and Son’s come back under GL Pease and C&D is fantastic.
Eh... decent English

Mild English

A great blend if you prefer mild english's - I just think it is TOO mild for my tastes. A small complaint is how dry it was straight out of the tin. The quality is there though
Even-Bodied & Slightly Sweet

Product: Drucquer & Sons Red Lion 100g
This is a relatively smooth, even-bodied, slightly sweet and tasty English with a restrained measure of Latakia. The Latakia is enough to notice in the taste and the aroma, but not enough to intrude. The Virginias are in the lead with pretty much e... Read More

Tin note of tart plums, sugared Rasins and mildly smoky. Tobacco is a Ribbon cut of orangish tan, brown, dark brown with a little black mixed in. Moisture content is great. Burns moderately with few relights. The strength is medium and nic is mild to... Read More
great blend

Product: Drucquer & Sons Red Lion 100g
The title should be Red Lion Tamer as this blend does just that, tames the Virginia. Loads of flavor without the burn and tingle. I love the sweet virginia profile in all blends but so many leave a tingle too strong to overlook. This blend will be in... Read More

I've tried four of these Drucquer & Sons. Red Lion is awesome, as are the others. If you like to have robust snorkeling without any spicy nose burn, then this one is pretty tame. I like to robustly snorkel tobacco, but some are too spicy, so I have t... Read More

This is a wonderful blend, beautifully balanced yet nuanced. I started cycling through the Drucquer & Sons blends with Blairgowrie, which now having had more experience with the line, I'm going to re-visit. Second try was with Inns of Court, wh... Read More
