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.
