In 1911, the skilled tobacco blender Charles Rattray made his dream come true and took over a tobacco shop in the old Scottish capital of Perth. Only after a short while, the store became the top address for tobacco enthusiasts. In his small tobacco factory, he blended exquisite specialities for the discerning smoker. Today, Kohlhase Kopp & Co. continue to work to his original recipes and ideals.
Hal O’ The Wynd
One of Charles Rattrays most popular blends. The Rattray’s Hal O’ The Wynd is a full-strength, ready rubbed blend of earthy Kentucky, citrus Virginia and just a pinch of Perique to add a little peppery tang. A full-bodied Virginia tobacco with a slight sweetness and extremely pleasant smoking characteristics. The name comes from that of the armoured in the novel “The Fair Maid of Perth” – a man who had “a most unusual share of strength”
Ready Rubbed Pipe Tobacco:
