Ventura Cigar Company has begun shipping the inaugural Pipe Tobacco of the Year. This very special blend was crafted by 4th Generation Tobacconist Erik Stokkebye for the 2018 IPCPR trade show, which saw a production of 300 limited edition tins sell-out during the first day of the tradeshow.

This tobacco is hand-blended from personally selected grades from the most reputed tobacco fields in the world. “We have used Virginia from Old Belt district, Burley from Kentucky, Orientals from Greece, Turkey, and Cypress, and finally just a small amount of Perique from the the Famous Louisiana district in the U.S.A.” says Erik Stokkebye of 4th Generation Tobacconist. “It’s a pleasant blend with a very well-balanced room note.”

Pair it with one of the 2018 4th Generation Tobacconist Pipes of the Year in either Natural or Black Pebble finish for the perfect piping experience.
