Sioux Virginia Blend Shag Tobacco Pipe tobacco is a fundamental part of Native Indian culture. When smoking the peace pipe (calumet) peace arrangements were made and new bonds of brotherhood were established. Sioux shag reflects this ancestral and symbolic culture. The tobacco for this Virginia blend has been processed with respect, passion and the greatest care. The Sioux Virginia Shag Tobacco is a quality Virginia blend with a naturally sweet and pure flavour produced specifically for Bull Brand who are the leaders in budget products for smokers in the UK.
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.
