Peterson Royal Yacht Pipe Tobacco 50g
The complete range of Dunhill pipe tobacco was discontinued earlier in the UK. Fortunately, Dunhill tobacco fans will be very delighted to know that Peterson of Dublin is here to relaunch the same product with original recipe under the time-honoured brand name. It is made in the same factory as previous Dunhill blends, and ensures you complete joy and satisfaction.
Royal Yacht was introduced by Dunhill in 1912 and has been a firm favourite with smokers around the world ever since. What is essentially a Virginia mixture is given a slight plum topping, adding a little to the smoking experience. It comes across as almost a VaPer without the addition of Perique.
From the tin this tobacco has a wonderfully complex Virginia aroma with a slight raisin note to it. This dark tobacco packs easily thanks to the ribbon cut and lights very easily. For a blend of this nature it certainly produces plenty of smoke and is best smoked slowly. If smoked too quickly the tobacco will burn a little hot and harsh, as you would expect from a Virginia blend.
Tin Note – “Truly a luxurious tobacco. Virginias are carefully conditioned to insure sweetness. They are added to rich, heavier and cooler Virginias. A unique flavour is added to the final blend to enhance the subtle and piquant aroma.”
