Comoy's Cumberland was originally produced by Robert McConnell's at their German factory and then moved over to K&K (also located in Germany), once they shut down for good at the turn of the 21st century. My tin was from the McConnell's era and as you would expect, the McConnell's special processing of the Virginia leaf (top of the line stuff), made this blend a crowd pleaser Rich and bold Virginia taste with that smooth finish that only fine and well aged leaf can produce. I am not sure when, and if, K&K shut off the faucet on this blend but it is surely missed.
This tin had to be from the 70s or even the 60s. I have no idea what it tasted like when fresh, and it's no longer made. If anyone has tried it back in the day and can remember the particulars, please post a review, because I would be very interested! My tin, as noted, was old but still sealed. The tobacco inside was a very nice smoke, but was overaged and fermented. I like to get something like this once in a while, however. I smoked a few bowls, then used it in a blend with another overly-old tin, throwing in some black cavendish and Latakia to spice it up. It is still "merging," but I think it will be an unusual but interesting critter in another year or so.
