Ilsteds Own First produced by the late Danish pipe maker Poul Ilsted Bech (AKA Mr Bulldog) who was regarded as one of the finest craftsmen to ever build a pipe. Sadly Poul passed away in 2017 but his legacy lives on in his blends that have been finally released here over the pond to a rave reception so far!
No.66 The Ilsteds Own No.66 is a blend of Dark and Light Virginias blended with a touch of Burley and Kentucky, rounded off with a modest amount of Dark Cavendish. This is then finished off with a topping of Vanilla and Almond. Opening the tin you will be greeted with a rich sweetness and a blast of mouth watering marzipan and immediate notes of quality Virginia and Burley. The initial mild vanilla seems to increase as you get further down the bowl. A quality danish aromatic which will keep you coming back for more.
