On the back of the 1977-2O17 release is written "Specialists with Virginian and Oriental leaf."
Once you remove the blue wax seal and paper wrapping you find the following product description: "An elegant Matured Virginia ribbon-cut blend, naturally sweet with that clarity of flavour possessed only by the best Virginias. Seasoned lightly with fine, cool smoking Cyprian Latakia. Aged for months to mellow."
