Low Country: Atalaya 2oz Pipe Tobacco

Product Number: 003-384-0010

Named and blended for Smokingpipes' brick-and-mortar store Low Country Pipe and Cigar in Little River, South Carolina, Low Country pipe tobaccos are all crafted by Cornell & Diehl — also located in South Carolina. They're blended to be classic, easy-smoking mixtures, honoring South Carolina's historic Lowcountry and named for some of the region's iconic rivers. As a limited-edition blend, Atalaya deviates from the riverway motif, but still maintains its Lowcountry theme, having been named for the historic Atalaya castle.

A cultured Virginia/Perique mixture that marries the familiar with the exotic, Low Country's Atalaya is a unique, ready-rubbed blend that combines Red and Bright Virginias from 2019 with C&D's proprietary Red Virginia Cavendish for a rich, flue-cured foundation. A generous portion of genuine Perique from 31 Farms in St. James Parish, LA, contributes piquant spice and dark-fruit richness supported by aged Izmir and Basma sun-cured leaf. Atalaya is pressed to expertly marry its flavors, then sliced and tumbled for easy packing and enjoyment. A deep and flavorful, medium-to-full-bodied blend, Atalaya is excellent right out of the tin while commanding sensational aging properties. Only 5,000 2oz tins were produced.

Finished my first two tins. I can see why they named it Atalaya, meaning "watch tower," in Spanish... which is fitting. This blend does have a very traditional, antique South Carolina spirit, which I absolutely love. It smokes like an unexpected and ... Read More

Well, nine tins coming back to stock for the people that enjoy this one. Disappointed and that's being polite.

This is a very good blend. I would definitely say this is closer to full bodied. It’s a robust, but not over the top blend. The perique is nice and peppery, the orientals throw in a little tongue tingle, but I do struggle to detect any real flavor ... Read More

I like what Salty Briar said about the blend being “meaty and delicious”. This is a true American-style Virginia Perique with some Orientals thrown in to keep you puffing and appreciating and wondering how and why there are so many tobacco snobs out ... Read More
Keeps me coming back for more!

This blend produces a lot of smoke and smokes cool and smooth. I smoked three consecutive bowls and not even a hint of tongue bite. The mouth feel is bread / hay, and I found the blend to be very complex. Starts smooth with subtle flavor notes and... Read More

Most describe this as a Va/Per but I feel it is actually a Per/Va. The Perique is up front with the virginias giving a nice supporting sweetness with a nice cereal overtone instead of the usual bright citrus or hay. After first light I caught a coupl... Read More

Tin note of pungent, tart fruit, and mildly sweet figs. The mostly dry broken flakes are mostly brown with a little tan and a little dark brown. No drying needed and it rubs out with a little effort. Burns moderately slow with few relights. The stren... Read More
