The Barneys Punchbowle produced to John Sinclairs original recipe by Orlik the largest pipe tobacco manufacturer in the world. The Punchbowle is a classic English Mixture, carefully blended with Virginia and a good presence of Latakia. It is a well balanced blend, which smokes cool and has enough body to keep the taste buds occupied without affecting your day to day activities. A great regular smoke.
Latakia blends are the marmite of tobacco world “Love it or hate it.” Pure it is mainly used as a blending tobacco due to the overpowering flavour it provides. The flavour has a very distinctive tarry odour accompanied by a characterful burnt ash taste, which is due to a long curing process over smokey fires. Most smokers buy small amounts and add a pinch to a bowl full to add depth and character to the smoke. The Latakia is an acquired taste and definitely wouldn’t be recommended for the novice smoker.
Ready Rubbed Pipe Tobacco:
The Punchbowle, Pipe Tobacco is a ready rubbed tobacco blend. Ready rubbed tobacco is made up of loose strands and is ready for immediate use in the pipe with no preparation for added convenience and enjoyment.
