Germain’s British Pipe Tobacco’s:
One of the last remaining true British Pipe Tobacco blenders. Renowned for their very “British” style with unique recipes dating back nearly a century! Germains Tobacco is notoriously difficult to obtain and such demand is always high from this characterful factory in Jersey.
The Germains 1820 is one of their iconic blends named after their year of incorporation. It is blended using the finest Cyprian Latakia, Oriental and Flue Cured leaves, which along with Germains blending experience produces a well rounded and balanced typical English Tobacco. A must try for lovers of traditional English blends.
Esoterica Penzance Similarity:
We have been reliably informed that the highly sort after Penzance is made using the same blend as the 1820 mixture. Therefore the 1820 is the closest Tobacco you will get to match Penzance in the UK.
Flake Pipe Tobacco:
The Germains Medium Flake Pipe tobacco is sold in flake form. Flake tobacco 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.Delicate Flakes:
Please note that Germains Flakes are more delicate/finer flakes than from other manufacturers. This makes them very easy to crumble and rub out but also means that they often don’t resemble flakes after movement in transit. So please expect something that resembles a broken flake than the neat flakes you get from other manufacturers.
