A true classic, still reminiscent of the early days of its manufacture. Too many tobacco manufacturers have interfered with their blends in pursuit of profit and where are they now? Don’t be miss guided, Erinmore isn’t exactly the same as it was 50 years ago but it is still close and manufactured with pride in mind rather than the MD’s pocket. And this is probably why it is one of our biggest selling tobacco’s.
The Erinmore Flake is the same medium strength blend of premium Virginia leaf as the Mixture just in a cooler smoking, more versatile flake form. Only the finest Matured Virginia leaves are reserved for the Erinmore, which are carefully blended with mellow Burley and some sweeter dark air cured leaves. The blend is then top dressed with a secret recipe, which definitely incorporates some refreshing, juicy Pineapple. It is then aged under pressure to marry the flavours. The aged cake is then sliced into thin slivers of flake for the perfect versatile flake tobacco.
If you like Erinmore but wish to broaden your horizons we would recommend trying the Ennerdale pipe tobacco.
Flake Pipe Tobacco:
As the name suggest the Erinmore Flake comes in Flake form. Flake tobacco usually requires rubbing (breaking up) before it can be smoked. The tobacco can be rubbed to the smokers preference depending on whether they prefer a slow or fast burn rate.
