Henry Sutliff opened the first of his shops back in 1849 in San Francisco on Kearny Street. This fine mixture of Sweet Virginia and Spicy Perique is in commemoration of the founding of America’s oldest pipe tobacco company.
Room Note: Pleasant
The tin note was of figs or raisins. The tobacco was ready to smoke right from the tin, no drying time needed. On the charring light and the true light the a tangy citrus flavor from the Flu Cured Virginia was the predominate flavor. Shortly afterwards a sweet hay flavor from the Red Virginia was added to the flavor profile. A quarter of the way into the bowl the spice of the Perique was noticeable in the background. 1849 burned well with little dottle and no relights. I do recommend to pack Sutliff 1849 a little loose. This blend would be a good all day smoke for VaPer lovers and good anytime smoke for everyone else.
