This is the most intriguing (and costly) pipe tobacco in the world - W.O. Larsen 2015 Hand Pressed. To make this one of a kind blend, master blender Lasse Berg (of My Own Blend fame) hand selected 21 different, top-grade tobaccos and crafted a top note that includes the use of gale leaves that were harvested by hand from the Danich moors. The aroma and flavor are unlike anything we've ever tried, but there's a somewhat familiar old fashioned note to it that is comforting, yet unique. To press the tobacco, Mr. Berg recreated an old hand press to keep things as traditional as possible. The pressed bars are then packed into a specially designed humidor. Manufacturing was extremely limited, so when they're gone, they're gone.

Notes: The world's most expensive pipe tobacco. 200 were produced with only 40 shipped to the United States.

The tin description: The most exclusive pipe tobacco in the world — Larsen's 2015 Hand Pressed — is a blend of 21 high-quality leaf components, flavored with the aromas of handpicked gale leaves from the moors of Denmark. Blended and pressed by master blender Lasse Berg using a custom made hand press, it is individually numbered and presented in its own humidor.

Retailed for $1,000.00 at release. Right now 300 bucks from pipesandcigars.

Unworking fancy cedar humidor makes the tobacco very dry. The white glove is slippery and make me confused.

Strong gale leaf dominates so any other tobacco is very hard to distinguish.
