John Cotton's

Available now!

Working from vintage samples, as well as his own recollections of having enjoyed countless tins of this venerable brand, Master Blender Russ Ouellette has completed the preliminary work on formulating three of these premium Virginia/Oriental/Latakia blends: John Cotton’s No. 1 Mild, John Cotton’s No. 1 & 2 Medium and John Cotton’s Smyrna. The three blends span a range of intensity certain to satisfy the palette of many pipe smokers.
















War Horse

Available NOW!

Warhorse, last sold in the UK in the early 1980’s, is a robust “everyman’s” pipe tobacco, consisting of earthy, hearty Burley, ripe red Virginias, a good share of smoky, spicy dark-fired Kentucky and a bit of Perique for a hint of sweetness. It has a very light top-note that helps to smooth out the flavor. This is a bold smoke, best enjoyed after a good meal with a fine libation. 














Bengal Slices

Available Now!

The Celebrated Bengal Slices. A blend of legend and lore, Bengal Slices is a unique Latakia-based crumble cake made with yellow and black Virginias, some of the most delectable Orientals available and a touch of unflavored black Cavendish. The tobaccos are heated and firmly pressed along with a subtle and exotic essence, creating a bright, complex flavor with an aroma that’s reminiscent of incense – a cool, bite-free cascade of tastes. 













The Standard Tobacco product line is distributed on the wholesale level exclusively by Meier & Dutch.

The blends are available for retail sale from tobacconists across the United States.
