John Cotton's: Double Pressed Burley 1.75oz Pipe Tobacco
Product Number: 003-735-0010
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 Burley comprises sweet Virginias, Burley, and a touch of Dark-Fired Kentucky, which are then pressed and sliced into flakes. Afterward, the flakes are tumbled out into ribbons and given some time to breathe before being re-pressed into a crumble cake. Such a process further deepens and enriches the flavors, resulting in a well-balanced Burley blend.
