Robert Lewis: Wingfield Mixture 50g Pipe Tobacco
Product Number: 003-057-0001
Robert Lewis' Wingfield pipe tobacco was named after Welsh inventor and British Army officer Walter Clopton Wingfield, who in the 1800s was one of the pioneers of lawn tennis. A bust depicting him can still be seen at the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum. Walter Wingfield was said to be a long-time customer of the London-based Robert Lewis shop. Robert Lewis tobaccos have been around since the late 18th century with the namesake shop being one of the oldest in the world.
In Robert Lewis' Wingfield Mixture, fine Virginias dominate the flavor profile, though technically Black Cavendish and Latakia are listed as components. Those complementary tobaccos, though, are used sparingly and lend Wingfield Mixture a smooth texture and cool aspect without noticeably affecting the overall flavor.
