John Cotton’s Numbers 1&2 is a light colored tobacco blended with a complex recipe. Virginia is used to sweeten and balance out the flavors, as the fragrant Orientals give a full smoke, complimented by the spicy character of the Latakia and Turkish tobaccos used. The blend is mild-medium and would make for a great all day smoke. The tobaccos are also perfect candidates to age.

It seems after a few weeks in the glass jar, the tobacco has become much better in taste and flavor. So, I have added another star!
The blend of these three tobaccos is fairly a success. But, to me it is a bit dull and I am not impressed. As soon as I opened the tin, I knew that it was not good to amaze or surprise me. Relatively high in nicotine! However, a good effort to revive a forgotten blend.
