Even though J.J. Fox was a proper Englishman, the blend of tobacco made in his honor are now blended in the country of Denmark. The Provost mixture is a solid middle of the road aromatic pipe tobacco. A heavy helping of cavendish tobacco has been paired with some bright Virginia leaf, creating a tasty smelly mixture.

A good pipe smoking friend recommended this tobacco to me years ago...but I was too busy exploring the world of English blends. There was no room on my palate for Aromatics or Virginias etc... Tempus fugit and my taste have changed a bit. Still love a Latakia-filled English, but I’ve begun to enjoy a good Virginia...and then I remembered Provost. Full, rich with just enough sweetness, Provost can be an all-day smoke. Best sipped slowly but will not bite if you puff away. A dog, a fire, a good book and a glass of port...and Provost. Oh, you’ll need a pipe too.
