Old Belt Golden Virginia Ribbon is hand blended with a substantial amount of delicious Cyprus Latakia. Long cuts of St. James Perique are added along with a small amount of Kentucky White Burley for additional smoothness. A connoisseur's blend!

Notes: Available for purchase at the Sarasota, FL store only.

A very upscale version of the old HOW Country Doctor. The Bennington tobacconists combined Burley, Latakia, Perique and Virginia in a manner that provided strength, but in a restrained manner that allowed me to enjoy the various leaf without my palate feeling overwhelmed. Just marvelous stuff!

I am lucky enough to count Bennington's, in their Boca location, as my local B&M, and the No. 10 blend is one I never fail to grab when I stop in. It's a mild, slightly sweet English with just the right leathery aftertaste to keep you until the next bowl. This is one of the last great house blends left in America, and if you get the chance to try it, don't pass it up!
