Larus & Brother Company, Inc Edgeworth Jr.

This unique pipe tobacco contains high-quality Tennessee and Kentucky white Burley tobaccos, expertly blended for a richer flavor, and a longer, cooler smoke for the pipe and cigarette smoker. Also process-aged but cut for "roll your own" and manufactured to give the beginner a milder, more free-burning smoke.
Notes: Taken from Larus & Brothers Co. advertisement in April 5, 1937 Life Magazine.

Reviewed By Date Rating Strength Flavoring Taste Room Note
Oct 11, 2021 Mild to Medium Extremely Mild Mild to Medium Pleasant
The Tennessee and Kentucky white burleys provide a lot of earth, wood, nuts, light sugar, a small savory sourness, and a few very small molasses notes. The molasses was likely a tad more obvious had time not dissipated it, but I don’t know how much may have present when freshly produced. The strength and nic-hit are a step past the mild mark. The taste is just short of the center of mild to medium. Won’t bite or get harsh, but there are a few rough edges. Burns clean, fairly cool and a little fast with a very consistent flavor that extends to the lightly lingering, pleasant after taste. Barely leaves any dampness in the bowl, and requires very few relights as it’s essentially a fine cigarette cut production. Has a mild, pleasant room note. An all day smoke for pipes or cigarettes though I smoked it in a pipe. According to the tax stamp, this pocket tin was manufactured in 1953.
