Kendal Dark Shag Smoking Tobacco (Full Strength)
- Loose Packaged to Order
- Medium Strength
- Coarse Cut
- Slow Burning
We have been reliably informed that this tobacco is a good substitute for the long lost Lloyds Bondsman Tobacco.
The Kendal Shag Tobacco is made in the heart of the lake district in the true British spirit. The finest tobacco leaves are sourced from the finest tobacco producing nations before being blended and prepared in the Kendal Tobacco factory.
The Kendal Dark is the same blend of full strength Dark Malawi and Indian tobacco leaves as the Auld Kendal Dark but the strands are cut thicker. These tobacco leaves have been fired and air cured to bring out the full strength and flavours for the enjoyment of the experienced smoker. We would not recommend the Kendal Dark tobacco for the novice smoker.
All of the tobacco’s in the Kendal range are very clean, containing very little of the stem and produce a very natural flavour without the chemical harshness present in many modern tobaccos.

Due to some hand rolling smokers using shag tobacco for hand rolling purposes, HMRC have taken action to stop this abuse of the tobacco taxation. HMRC have defined that any tobacco where the strands are less than 1.5mm will be taxed as a Hand Rolling tobacco. All shag tobacco produced as of January 2011 will be cut above 1.5mm. This is a pipe tobacco and is taxed accordingly. It is a criminal offence to use shag tobacco for hand rolling and we do not endorse this.
