A slow burning blend of choice flue-cured and fire-cured Virginia tobaccos. The selected long leaf is hand-spun into rope which is finely sliced, a skilled meticulous process, following a traditional recipe. Only available in Harrod's store.

There are a lot of good Virginia blends out there and this isn't one of them. It is a sharp Red Virginia mixture composed of rubbed out coins, similar in appearance to Three Nuns, without Perique. It is a cool burning blend with various nuances of flavor. The quality of Virginias used are excellent, but the strength is just too much for me to handle. Knightsbridge is not one that I would recommend.

Knightsbridge is one of 3-4 different blends Fox made for the Harrod's Store and it has been out of production since sometime in the 1980s. Perhaps it was the aging, but this was a very nice Virginia offering utilizing the popularity of Fox's steam pressing for Virginia tobaccos that darkened the leaf and took the edge off. My tin, once popped, gave off a beautifully sweet smell of fermented Virginia and at the match, the leaf was smooth and actually light for this style of Virginia. If you can find a tin, the experience will be a very nice one for light Virginia lovers.
