G. L. Pease: Bankside 2oz Pipe Tobacco
Product Number: 003-029-0101
The inaugural entry in a new series from master blender Greg Pease, Bankside introduces the Zeitgeist Collection — a line celebrating the often avant-garde and rebellious themes of the modern era — with a strikingly modernist reinterpretation of the archetypal Virginia/Perique flake. From a bold, traditional canvas of Red and Bright Virginias and genuine St. James Perique emerge subtle, contrasting strokes of dark-fired Kentucky and Latakia tobaccos — originating exotic, smoky undertones that support and enrich its notes of sweet cream and citrusy tang.
About the Zeitgeist Collection: The Zeitgeist Collection is a pipe tobacco series from Gregory Pease that pays tribute to the avant-garde and rebellious themes of the modern era. Each carefully formulated pipe tobacco in this series evokes the spirit of a particular location, time period, or cultural milieu. This inaugural mixture, Bankside, is a nod to Modernist art and architecture and the defiant but forward-looking culture that inspired the movement, with the tin depicting an abstract rendering of the Tate Modern art museum located in London's Bankside district.
