MERCHANDISE AND NEWS FROM THE PIPE WORLD

Poul Winslow Pipe Tobacco in Artistic Tins

Master Pipe maker Poul Winslow has unveiled two new pipe tobacco blends, to be exclusively distributed by Music City Marketing. Poul Winslow Blend #1 and #2 are both in the light to medium-aromatic flavor spectrum, and include tobaccos aged from three to five years. The tobaccos come in 100-gram tins at a suggested retail price of $13.50.

Blend #1 is an aromatic mixture of Black Cavendish and Burley, contrasted with matured Virginia from three continents. Hand-blended and seasoned with exotic flavors, it is finished with Jamaican Rum. Blend #2 combines three-year-old and selected bright Virginia tobaccos with cured Black Cavendish. All the leaf types are individually cut and seasoned with Vanilla-Maple flavors and cream liqueur before being mixed by hand, and the blend is given a 40-day rest period to develop its unique flavor.

Winslow has gained a reputation as a painter as well as a pipe maker, and his work has been featured in galleries across Europe. Each of the tobacco tins is topped with an example of Winslow's colorful paintings, giving the customer a chance to own a piece of art as well as a new pipe tobacco.
