"Erik Peter, my Great Grandfather, founded our family's tobacco business in Denmark and was known for his deep passion for natural tobacco flavors. Truly for the experienced pipe smoker, 1855 is a ready-rubbed blend of exceptional golden, mature Virginia tobaccos that demonstrates the natural sweet Virginia taste and its pleasant aroma."
1855 is a simple Virginia, easy to love. A 1 yr old tin was mildly sweet with grassy notes; my 3 yr tin was much sweeter, even in a new pipe! It's a thicker ribbon cut that burns easy and bites only when smoked too fast.
UPDATE: a 5 yr tin is a worl... Read Mored of difference. Everything has mellowed out and provides a smooth velvety smoke. Sweet and less grassy, it maintains smoothness until the heel. Read Less
I really enjoy the light taste of this blend and the way it develops down the bowl. It showed me a depth that sometimes you can't find out of a stronger Virginia. Let me clarify this. When you smoke a heavy dark Virginia you come to a point after 2/3... Read More of a bowl that it goes flat at least to my taste. This one starts out light and builds all the way to the bottom. and when you get there it is like a caramel sweetness which is worth the price of admission. Go slow and let it build, a great smoke with a morning coffee or tea to warm up your palate for heavier smokes later in the day. Read Less
A very bright, hayish blend that burns smooth and effortlessly. Cut is perfect, more of a ready rub than ribbon to my eye. Can be smoked straight from the tin, but is much more round and smooth with a few months of aging.
This straight matured virginia ready-rubbed packs and burns beautifully, and exhibits no tongue bite. Enticing natural sweetness, light grass, baked-good notes, building creaminess, medium-bodied, exquisite room note...
A new favorite!
A good tobacco, I generally smoke straight virginias and this one is up there for me. My tin was perfectly dried, I do taste subtle vanilla in it, I'm wondering if it's lightly cased... doesn't matter, a good pipe baccy.
I got a sample of this tobacco with my other orders and was greatly and pleasantly surprised at how good this tobacco was for me. It also reminded my grandfather of the tobacco his father used to smoke, all in all, I highly recommend this tobacco.
This came on the scene several years back with a lot of hype. It's at best an OK Virginia. There are a lot better out there for the money. The line seems to have failed, as there are a lot of vendors discounting the 1855 products. Basically just a mi... Read Moreddle of the road Va blend... Read Less
This came up on my list of milder blends and I decided to give it a try. The tin note is sweet tith little overtone. On my first pinch I was surprise to find 1855 needed a lot of rubbing out to behave in the pipe bowl. The smoke itself is wheaty w... Read Moreith a slight sweetness. This changed not a whit during the entire smoke. It offers no complexity so after a while I felt a little bored. Yet, if you are looking for a basic all-day blend, this is it.. Read Less
