McConnell Pipe Tobacco is another old and storied tobacco company. They worked with many different tobacco pipe manufacturers, supplying their blends and packaging under the pipe company's name. Their popularity placed them in high demand, even working with notable companies like Dunhill.
The company was founded in 1848, operating in a warehouse on Barking Road, London. Since then, they have been a persistent member of the pipe tobacco community, making consistent blends and quality tobacco. Kohlhase and Kopp would eventually acquire McConnell Pipe Tobacco, bringing them into the fold of another consistent and popular tobacco company. Under Kohlhase and Kopp, the McConnell brand gained a more extensive reach, finding its way to more people than before.
We offer 36 different blends under the McConnell Pipe Tobacco brand. Some of them are traditional mixtures, such as their Latakia mixture or their English location lines, like St. James Park and Notting Hill. These tobaccos offer you the traditional flavors, blends, and experiences you typically receive from tobacco companies.
Meanwhile, McConnell offers other tobaccos, their "Pure" line. This includes their Pure Latakia, Rich Dark Virginia, Pure Caribe, Pure Virginia, and Pure Perique. These tobaccos offer you a unique experience, something different that is not something you would find from other companies. With this line, you can be your tobacconist. Mix the tobaccos at measurements to fit your preference, or explore different combinations to find a mixture you like. You can also choose to smoke this by itself, having a "pure" experience with the tobacco, something that will give you a deeper understanding of that specific style.
With that understanding comes more and better knowledge of the tobaccos, what you like, and how they can interact with each other. If you want to learn more and find out exactly what you like in your tobacco blends, then the McConnell Pipe Tobacco brand is the right one for you.
