The Red Bull A Blend shag tobacco is a unique blend of Virginia and Burley, expertly blended with exotic Oriental tobaccos. A typical American Blend tobacco with an unique aroma. As with all our budget tobacco's they are cheaper due to our bulk buying. We basically pass the savings on to our customers. The Red Bull is clean tasting and does not contain substantial amounts of stem like some budget tobacco blends.
Shag Tobacco: 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.
Loose packaged to order: Here at the Black Swan Specialist Tobacconist we buy our Red Bull A Blend tobacco in 250g bags. This means we hand package your tobacco and inspect every strand before it reaches you.
