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 Full Latakia is a premium Cyprian Latakia leaf with the usual distinctive leathery, tarry odour accompanied by a characterful smokey flavour, which is due to a long curing process over smokey fires. Germains have sufficiently moistened the tobacco to provide a clean cool smoke.
Latakia is the Marmite of the tobacco world, you will either love it or hate it.
It is usually added to a blend in small proportions to add extra character and complexity to a blend, it is not generally smoked pure by even the most avid Latakia enthusiasts.
We recommend buying small quantities and adding a pinch or two to any tobacco’s that need spicing up a bit.
Ready Rubbed Pipe Tobacco:
The Germains Full Latakia Pipe 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.
Loose packaged to order:
Here at the Black Swan Specialist Tobacconist we buy our Germains Full Latakia Pipe Tobacco in 500g bags. This means we hand package your tobacco and inspect every strand before it reaches you.
