Although the country they operated out of (Switzerland), was known for flavored tobaccos, this brilliant old blending house went against the grain by producing some of the finest English style blends ever produced. And believe it or not Wellauer & Company also was known for its brand of chocolates and other confections. The only way I could get their tobaccos back in the 1980s and early '90s was to swap tobacco with an old Pipe Smokers Ephemeris member who had me send him tobacco he couldn't get there.

Morning pipe was certainly the same style of tobacco as its Dunhill namesake, with a rather heady Latakia and Virginia combination mixed with some Orientals to awaken the palate. My notes from back then indicate it was a heavy broken flake with a much stronger Latakia and Nicotine presence than Dunhill's Early Morning Pipe.

A nice blend with a nod towards the Early Morning Pipe, which is not available here in Switzerland. Nice English blend with a pleasant Latakia nose. Very satisfying nicotine. Burns nicely to ash and easy to load in the bowl. The middle part of the bowl is nice and nutty. A nice and simple way to wake up especially with a cup of coffee, also good after lunch. I have enjoyed smoking it in the lightly falling snows of early December. Not sure if you get this outside of Switzerland, but worth a try if you can.
