Savinelli Premium Pipe Tobaccos

U.S. pipe smokers can experience the same flavorful Savinelli tobaccos long enjoyed in European markets. Each style is a blend that has been perfected over the past 30 years to deliver “outstanding aroma and flavor.” Five blends, made by premium tobacco blenders in Germany, are offered through U.S. importer Savinelli, Inc.:
  • Savinelli Aroma, made from Black Cavendish, dark Virginias, some Broadleaf and a touch of Oriental have been blended to create a full-bodied mixture with a hint of almonds, topped with a bourbon vanilla flavor.
  • Savinelli Mr. G Black Cavendish is a combination of Black Cavendish, sweet Virginia, and nutty burley which results in a vanilla and chocolate flavored blend.
  • Savinelli English Mixture features classic Virginias and about 30% Latakia with a hint of Burley.
  • Punto Oro Cavendish is a mixture of Virginias, burleys, and Maryland Oriental leaves, this blend produces a subtle flavor of honey and caramel.
  • Savinelli Special Tobacco is an extremely bright mixture of Virginia tobaccos, toasted burley, and Java. The three ingredients come together to form a soft, fresh tobacco that assures a cool, smooth burn.
Each variety is packaged in 50 gm hermetically-sealed tins, sold in packs of five tins per blend.
