Drucquer & Sons: The Merry Monk 100g Pipe Tobacco

Product Number: 003-756-0018

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.

An English-style flake mixture, the Merry Monk is composed of Red and Bright Virginias seasoned with Cypriot Latakia, piquant St. James Perique, White Burley, and Black Cavendish. Once blended, the mixture is pressed and aged in cakes before being cut into flakes, marrying the flavor-enhancing benefits of the pressing process with the convenience of a sliced flake. As a blend, this mixture is a medium-to-full-bodied smoke that offers a tangy sweetness accented with notes of woodsmoke, cream, and nuts.

I can resist everything but temptation, so I was probably one of the first few to purchase. I have too many English blends to count, but I would rate this in my top ten, maybe my top five. Smooth smoke, no complaints. I will be buying more .
Right on - beautiful blend

The Merry Monk is a fine english broken flake, packs well This in my top 5 english blends. The well balanced blend has a nice nutty and creamy taste, and the blend is very pleasant all day smoke.
Another hit from D&S

I’ve yet to try a blend from Drucquer & Sons that I haven’t enjoyed and that’s the case once more for The Merry Monk! Each of D&S’s blends are very distinct from one another as is this one. (Also great tin art!) I found this one a very unique English... Read More

This is not your grandpa's English. I wondered if the world needed another English blend to go with the other 400 out there already. The answer is yes. This is good stuff and different enough to find a spot in my rotation.
good to go.

Tin note of smoky, dark fruity wine and peaty vegetation. Tobacco is a flake of marbled black, brown and dark brown with a little tan. Moisture content is ok. Most pipe smokers will want to dry it out a bit. Flakes rub out with a little effort. Burns... Read More

I started smoking a pipe, cigars for years, in May of 2023. I have tried several different blends but still new to everything. To date, this is my favorite blend. Smells like good BBQ. Tastes like Happy.
William of Baskerville loves this!

Merry Monk--This tobacco really reminds me of Strauss Tobacconists' PRIVATE STOCK (Strauss is a Cincinnati tradition.) I started smoking Private Stock when I attended UC. The tobacco taste is reminiscent of Private Stock, but is much lighter, possib... Read More

As much as I love this, the room note will set the dogs a-howlin' and drive the women folk from the dwelling. BEWARE: as merry as this will make you, you may end up living like a monk thereafter.
Fascinating smoke.

This is a wonderfully complex blend. All your old friends are there from the creamy to the nutty to the smokey and leathery. The interplay between the different leaves is really lovely and keeps me interested. What is different about this blend is... Read More

Product: Drucquer & Sons The Merry Monk 100g
A very rich, complex, and tasty flake where the individual components display their individuality--at least while young--you can taste everything. My tin had only about a month on it and I'm just not sure that aging will prove beneficial. Not all b... Read More

Product: Drucquer & Sons The Merry Monk 100g
I am enjoying the GLP versions of drucquer and sons blends. English blends are not my most favorite in the world of pipe tobacco. Most tend to be dripping with toppings or mis matched in some way. I have several favorites with all being on the “dry”... Read More
