Part of the Fog City Selection series, the Fillmore pipe tobacco is a thickly sliced, broken flake. A blend of Virginia and a good dose of Perique, you'll like the mild sweetness and cream finish as you smoke a bowl of this blend. Not only is this tobacco great for smoking now, but it handles agae exceptionally well. Order a tin for now and one for later to get the full effect of Fillmore.

Purchased a tin recently, age on bottom 7 09-14. Smoked 04-15. Tin note: slight vinegar tang in beautiful uniform slices; size like matchsticks. Moisture level from tin perfect!
Folded and stuffed the pipe. Char light then relight. Through out the first bowl leather with some hints of pepper, overall bland but burned fine. Disappointed with but perhaps a little drying and rub will help.
After 1 hr. drying I rubbed the slices vigorously til they were small flakes/cubes. Now the second bowl in bent facon w/Dublin bowl. Sweet Virginia's came of along with chorus of spices: pepper,cinnamon and coriander were prominent. Additionally occasionally anise was noted with a bitter nicotine pulse on couple puffs. Followed the same method in another briar and cob pipe with the same spiceness throughout By Jove! Excellent tobacco once prepared correctly...4.5 stars.
