This mixture is absolutely ideal for the evening, ergo.we borrowed the name from the diaries of Samuel Pepys, Esquire. Finest grade Virginia and Maryland type tobaccos are carefully aged and blended with Greek "Oriental" leaf and top grade Cyprian Latakia. The blend is then specially procesed and additionally matured to produce a mellow, full-strength smoke with rich flavor and unique aroma.
We apologize, but this item is temporarily out of stock. Please check back with us in a few days.
Sweet, smokey, chocolatey with some sour cinnamon and woodiness. It reminds me of an English holiday fruit pudding in smoke form. A true symphony of a blend. From the first bowl, I was sold. I am usually a bit of a cynic but I have yet to smoke... Read More a blend by Germaine's that isn't special and worthy of the hype. The only exception here is how freaking exceptional this smoke is. If you disagree, feel free to sell me yours. haha
Impossible to get tongue bite. Can be an all-day. It has been for me. Read Less
I could not think of a more appropriate name for this tobacco. I can see why it's so hard to get ahold of. The tin note reminds me of a mellower nightcap from dunhill without that figgy background scent. The smooth sweet mellow smoke that follows is ... Read Moreawe inspiring. This may be an English by name but the flavor is so mellow that I can hardly think of it as one. Very relaxing and flavorful, it's going on my watch list. Read Less
Another great smoke in the Esoterica line up. I wouldn't go into this one thinking it's going to be a full bodied English blend. To me it's more of a lightly topped VA/Oriental blend with a faint whisper of Latakia. The tin note is absolutely delicio... Read Moreus and I almost want to eat it but I'm sure the flavor comes through much better in the smoke. I see folks saying that it's topped with apricot but I've also heard that this was the equivalent to Smokers Haven 20th Anniversary Blend, which is topped with an ale. I don't get any apricot in the flavor so I'm not quite sure where ya'll are coming up with that? This is a very nice one indeed and people that like Pembroke should really enjoy this one as well. This one won't make it into my regular rotation but is nice to have some around for the change of pace. Definitely worth trying out if you happen to come by it. Those sensitive to nicotine should have no problems here as it's a perdy darn light blend... a bit too light for my tastes. Read Less

I shamefully confess that with the provocative moniker ‘And so to bed’ I could barely resist trying this offering from UK tobacco brand Esoterica Tobacciana.
‘And so to bed’ arrives in a gold, flat finished tin topped with a... Read More label that, to be frank, appears as if it was run off at the ink jet printer in the office. The script on the label, while a bit busy, is in keeping with the provocative title. Crack open the tin and find a simple fan-fold wrap with a plain tissue disk covering the tobacco.
Tightly packed, ribbon cut. Pleasantly clean, almost crisp aroma with the slightest impression of liquor and, perhaps, pepper? It loaded easily into my flat-bottomed stovepipe briar and I fired it up.
It lit quickly but to be frank, I work a bit initially to keep the fire going. It was a cool, very pleasant draw. So cool, in fact, I had to check that I was actually smoking. The gentle white smoke that curled reassuringly out of my bowl surrounded us with a fine aromatic that most non-smokers would find appealing.
It settled into a good regular burn and my smooth briar began to warm up. About halfway into the bowl I felt the first gentle bite on my tongue. Not unpleasant at all. This would be the place to set the pipe aside if your night was not to be spent alone.
Full flavor bloom as the bowl burns to a clean finish with no ashy taste, no bitterness and only the slightest reflux from the bowl.
‘And so to bed” was well received by all club members that day. 8 out of 10. Always store beer in dark places. Read Less
