Special was one of the very few Wellauer aromatic blends they ever produced, despite the fact the country they operated out of was known for flavored tobaccos and this brilliant old blending house went against the grain by producing some of the finest English style blends ever produced.

Special was a soft Virginia with interwoven flavored Black Cavendish and I that I could taste according to my long ago notes, was a honey like essence that did not add or detract to the very light presentation. Wellauer's was a prolific blender and some of these old blends can still be found by doing a little searching. If you are a fan of extremely light Virginia with a touch of sauce, you may want to drop some coin on this one.

I do not know if these Wellauer blends can be found outside Switzerland and even there not all tobacco shops stock them.

Whatever, that is an interesting blend, easy going smoke from beginning to end. Small bit of honey flavour in the pouch.

A nice blend to try.
