Drucquer & Sons Blairgowrie

Created in the classic Scottish blending style, Blairgowrie is a robust blend of matured and aged Virginia leaf, fine Orientals, Cyprian Latakia, and Perique, pressed and aged in cakes, then sliced and fully rubbed out for a rich smoking experience. Blairgowrie is deep and full tasting, and quite slow burning for a long, smooth smoke from first light to the last puff. - Gregory Pease

As a dedicated and devoted English and Balkans smoker of five decades, I was disappointed by this blend. Time has not improved its flavor nor ameliorated the "rough edges." Its major asset is the retrohale, yet that dissipates too quickly. No need to go into details. It didn't hit the spot. Rattray's since 1970 and the current blenders in the great States of Massachusetts and Pennsylvania (lest I name drop) are my go-to's for more complex and rewarding smokes of this noble variety. I mourn the absence of Ed's Turkish Black, although Paul's Turkish Mystery is a treat that even Ed would be wrong not to admit is wonderful.

A wonderful mature tobacco with a great ballance of Orientals, Latakia, and Perique. The cool burn aids in appreciating the flavors of the blend, with the Perique just in the background through the entire bowl. The Latakia is present with a earthy, woodsy note complementing the smokieness of the Perique. The orientals add a delightful background, none of the tobaccos are in your face. A daily blend that works anytime of day. It is also a good represenation of the Scottish style. GL Pease and C&D have done a great job re-establishing Drucquer and Son's as a premium pipe tobacco.
