TASTING PACK

Latest update April 10, 2021

We have been developing and refining these blends for nearly 30 years. Over this period we made use of a Tobacco Blending company in London, who acted as a consultant and supplier of special blending tobaccos. This gave us access to a vast store of experience and to naturally full-flavoured tobaccos such as Perique, Latakia, and matured Virginias. (Read more about Tobaccos, including Latakia & Perique - "In a Nutshell")

The aromatic (artificially flavoured) blends were not as easy, as we did not have access to the chemical formulae which make each blend unique. We now import smooth Burley-based, concentrated flavoured tobaccos from the USA and flavoured Virginias from Germany, which are then blended in South Africa to our instructions.

Note: It is very difficult to spread pure Perique evenly throughout a mixture - it is much better to mix it in before processing. To create an homogeneous blend including Perique, use No.58 which contains a high percentage of Perique already spread and mellowed, and much easier to incorporate.

TASTING PACK

One of the most important factors for enjoying your pipe is to find the correct tobacco for the occasion.
The answer is to experiment methodically; and we would like to help.
There are only 6 basic groups of tobacco mixtures,
so it is quite practical to try each type, and eliminate the flavours/tastes you don't like.
The Wesley Houseblend Tasting Pack covers these basic groups:
Nos. 1, 15, 24, 25, 41, 43, 46, 55, 47/58 (total of 110g of tobacco).
or Nos. 1, 43, 46, 47/24, 55 (total of 50g of tobacco).

The pack includes a copy of “The Perfect Blend” which helps to identify and correct problems.

Available in a simple pouch – or in a stunning glass tobacco jar (below left).

Total (5): 50g - R95.00

Once you have settled in with your tobacco you may occasionally feel like
a change in flavour, but may be hesitant to try a new blend.
This is the time to try a different pipe.

Corncob, Clay and Meerschaum all give a different taste to your tobacco
- since they don't have the flavour of lightly charcoaled briar.
You'll be surprised and pleased at the change.

Have fun experimenting, and don't be shy to ask.

Enjoy your tobacco!
