Solani Dutch Pipe Tobacco
Solani is a relatively new brand to the pipe world but don’t be deceived the founder has a vast knowledge of blending and has been responsible for the blending of extremely popular Tobacco’s such as Borkum Riff, which is one of our biggest sellers. Rudiger Will has a very strong passion for the art of blending, which is a complex process and requires decades of experience and understanding of every aspect of the leaf from soil PH to the light it’s grown in. Many companies claim they use the finest Tobacco to produce their blends but Solani truly only use the finest aged leaves for maxim depth of flavour.
As many companies rely on past recipes and heavy casings to create the perfect Tobacco we can safely say that Rudiger Will is one of the last true “master blenders” in the world today. The blend numbers on the tin are closing on 1000 recipes, which shows the number of corrections he has made to create the perfect blend for your enjoyment.
The Solani 633 is blended using specially selected red Virginia from the old belt, bright Virginias and a small addition of Louisiana Perique with no additional flavouring for those who appreciate the raw tobacco flavours.
Flake Pipe Tobacco:
The Solani Virginia Flake Pipe tobacco is sold in flake form. Flake tobacco usually 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.
