Charatan is an London brand steeped in Tobacco history dating back to 1863 and is a brand long associated with Dunhill.
When the current owners of this brand learnt of the loss of Dunhill Pipe Tobaccos from the worldwide market in 2018 they jumped to the aid of many mourning pipe smokers and produced their own blends as more or less identical replacements. The consensus so far from blind taste testing carried out in pipe clubs is that there is no notable difference. So mourn no more folks.
Charatan Curzon Mixture Pipe Tobacco:
The Charatan Curzon Mixture Pipe Tobacco has been produced as a direct replacement for the delisted Dunhill Durbar Pipe Tobacco.
Whilst Viceroy of India, Lord Curzon was responsible for the spectacular 1903 Delhi Durbar celebrating the accession of Edward VII as Emperor of India. This name celebrates te heritage of this blend which is designed for the more experienced and mature pipe smoker and has a composition of Virginia, Latakia and Oriental. It has a well balanced smooth, dark brown smoke with floral and tannin tones.
The blend is remarkably close to the former Dunhill Durbar.
Ready Rubbed Pipe Tobacco:
The Charatan Curzon Mixture 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.
