John Cotton's: Double Pressed Virginia 1.75oz Pipe Tobacco

Product Number: 003-735-0008

John Cotton's was a distinctive brand of pipe tobacco celebrated by enthusiasts the world over until production stopped sometime in the 1980s. Happily, Russ Ouellette and the folks at Standard Tobacco of Pennsylvania revived the brand, which now offers several blends.

Double Pressed Virginia starts as a lively, flavorful mixture of several grades of sweet Virginias pressed and cut into flakes. After the initial pressing, the flakes are tumbled into a ribbon, then pressed again into a crumble cake to further mature the flavors. The final result is a rich, sweet blend which is sure to please lovers of Virginia tobaccos.

Double Pressed Virginia was fantastic right out of the tin. Crumble it up and savor the delicious taste of sweet Virginia tobaccos. I would easily make this my everyday smoke except for the fact that it works out to about $144.00 per pound!

I’ll start out by saying that this stuff is rather on the pricy side, especially for a Sutliff product, however I haven’t found a better tasting Virginia right out of the tin. This tobacco is rich and sweet, like a snickers bar. It’s not as bright a... Read More
