This is a blend unlike any you have had in the past nor possibly in the future. This mixture is an original creation of a tobacco blended by a young master Steven Books! I guess for terms of comparison, like smoking a Balkan Sobranie blend yet not from a can but fresh from the blenders own table yet 50 years old! Aged like fine wine or a favorite cognac, this IS the perfect blend for that favorite scotch, brandy or cognac. A perfect gift for that discriminating palate! This ancient blend is crafted with these unique and obviously limited quantities — 40 yr old Virginia, 38 yr. old Syrian Latakia, 40 yr old Turkish blend, 45 yr old Burley.
