STG Virginia Special Shag Tobacco: The STG Virginia Special Tobacco is a mellow and flavourful blend based on a selection of superb quality golden and bronze Virginias which offer some citrus and hay flavours with a few drops of honey on the finish
Loose packaged to order: Here at the Black Swan Specialist Tobacconist we buy the Virginia Special in half kilo bags. This means we hand package your tobacco and inspect every strand before it reaches you.
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.
