Drucquer & Sons King's Fool
A lavish portion of bright flue-cured leaf, opulent red Virginias, whispers of Latakia, a touch of burley and cavendish and a dash of perique to imbue the smoke with a captivating luxurious spice. Pressed and aged in cakes before being sliced into flakes. King's Fool maintains an even burn, culminating in a pristine dry ash that leaves both pipe and palate revitalized.
Notes: Alas poor Yorick! I knew him Horatio, a fellow of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy..." The Bard's famous King's Fool sang songs, guided the monarch's contemplation, challenged decisions and created moments of pure relaxation akin to the leisurely ritual of pipe smoking. King's Fool is a rich rendition of the lighter realms of English tobaccos.

|Mild to Medium
Tin note of a sour metalic and sweet smoky. Tobacco is a flake cut of reddish to tan browns and a little black. Moisture content is good, no drying needed. Rubs out with a little effort. Burns slow with a few relights. The strength is mild to medium and nic is mild. No flavoring detected. Taste is medium and mostly consistent, with notes of dry fermented sour, mildly smoky, wood, peaty earthy vegetation, floral, lemon zest, mildly spicy, bitter toasted bread, mildly acidic vinegary, tart grassy, a tangy citrus and plum background note, and a moderately peppery retro. Virginias are leading most of the time with Burley and Latakia supporting. Cavendish is supporting from the rear and Perique is nowhere to be found. Room note is tolerable, and aftertaste is ok.
