Toasted Cavendish Tobaccos from Stokkebye

Peter Stokkebye International has introduced what it calls the "first true toasted Cavendish" pipe tobacco products to the market. The Danish manufacturer says that recent technological advances have made it possible to produce this unique, traditional style of tobacco in bulk, toasting the tobacco at a much higher heat. The process locks in the "natural sweet tobacco flavors, and eliminating any tongue bite."

Two versions are offered: Toasted Cavendish is a rich but smooth burley-based Cavendish. Sweet Vanilla is Toasted Cavendish blended with ripe Virginias and a touch of Vanilla. The tobaccos are packaged in 5 lb. poly bags.
