Charatan Pipe Tobacco: 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 FC1863 Pipe Tobacco: The Charatan FC1863 Pipe Tobacco has been produced as a direct replacement for the delisted Dunhill BB1938 Pipe Tobacco. This blend pays tribute to Frederick Charatan who founded Charatan in 1863. Generally a full bodied, smooth, rich and balanced smoke, full of nice tannins, with a clear smoky base due to the premium quality of Latakia tobacco in this fine mixture. Overall taste notes are woody, smoky, tannin and spicy.
The blend is remarkably close to the former Dunhill BB1938.
Ready Rubbed Pipe Tobacco: The Charatan FC1863 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.
