The Stokkebye family’s tobacco business was founded in 1882. Erik Stokkebye created the Founder’s Blend to celebrate that event, a historic one to pipe smokers all over the world. The blend features dark-fired Kentucky alongside Latakia and Oriental. It’s a deep and satisfying English that fans of Latakia will want to add to their regular rotation.

Lots of flavor and aroma without being overbearing. I generally prefer somewhat playful aromatics, but when I'm feeling like something a bit more substantive and serious, this is a nice change of pace. Just a nice blend of tobaccos.
Good all day Balkan Blend. The burley adds to a sweetness. Easy to light and requires few relights.
What a fabulous blend! Rich, complex, layered. Enjoyable from start to finish. Real pungent in the tin. Just plain perfection through the nose. Love it!
