Rattray's - Red Rapparee 500g
Let it Age!
I clearly am showing my age when I can say this is my 48th year smoking this blend. Though the blend is good when smoked new it is not fantastic. However, I did last year smoke two tins that had reached their 25th year and it was the best smoking experience of my life. The ageing process of having the Black Cavedish with the Orientals next to the Red Virginia in a non aerobic fermentation created a extremely complex and enjoyable smoke of smokey dark fruit flavors and spice. Buy this to cellar.
