We are situated on the edge of Pennsylvania coal country. When the miners were off the job and able to smoke, many of them enjoyed a classic English/Oriental blend. We offer this blend in their honor.

This is a powerful yet refined blend that I have enjoyed for a long while. While I am anything but a miner, this blend does appeal to my manly side! There are a lot of rich Virginia tobaccos that perfectly mate with the spicy but slightly delicate orientals. Then they throw a good measure of Latakia in which adds up to a tremendous evening smoke. This blend is potent but not overwhelming (think Londonblend 1000). The room note leaves much to be desired, but smokes cool and dry all the way to the bottom. This is not an everyday smoke but is a great evening treat and is a permanent fixture in my rotation.
