A true 1904 tobacco, as rich in tradition as it is in aroma, A smooth, slow burning blend with a distinctive, subtle cherry flavour.
Notes: It was 1904. Amid a backdrop of prosperity , extraordinary courage and new frontiers, Leonard Dingler arrived in the Old Transvaal to join the search for fame and fortune. He brought not only his passionate sense of adventure, but also the family tradition of fine tobacco making. Little has changed. These time-honoured tobacco blends are still created with the same skill and discernment that was Leonard Dingler's trademark, then and now.

Came across this South African blend 50 gram pouch at the mega sized SM Asian shopping mall in Cebu, the Philippines. Possibly the package had been lying in the glass display case for a while whence (a word General MacArthur would use) I discovered the leaf to be parched and in dire need of moisture. I've never been to the R.S.A., but I would say this is probably a commoner type, mass produced blend along the ilk of Middleton's Cherry Mixture in the U.S. or the pleasant Borkum Riff Cherry of old - before all the topping "glop" was gratuitously added. I will probably kick this up a little by adding a couple bunches of moist Paladin Black Cherry; my "go to" condiment to improve the desired cherry taste Aro Addicts like myself crave. Would love to try a couple of the other 1904 blends as this old colonialist line appears to have different flavouring and appeal and a rather compelling history.
