John Cotton's: Double Pressed Latakia 1.75oz Pipe Tobacco
Product Number: 003-735-0009
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 Latakia begins as a flake composed of Latakia, Virginia, Burley, and Oriental tobaccos. The aged flakes are then fully rubbed out and set aside to rest for several weeks. Afterward, the tobaccos are put into a press once more to form a crumble cake, which mellows the Latakia and further marries the flavors together for a rich, nicely balanced English blend.
