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.

- Room Note:
Smooth and refined dark Virginia tobaccos with just a little unsweetened cavendish. To get the very best from this blend, please let it have the air for 24+ hours before loading in your pipe. Smoking this without the drying is good, but what awaits you after some drying is more than amazing. You’ll swear there is Latakia in it. Incredibly good!
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.
