Pipe UPDATE 58 SMOKESHOP December 2015 Scandinavian Tobacco Group, Lane is now shipping more of its classic bulk blend pipe tobaccos in 1.75 oz. vacu- um-sealed tins. BCA is the most popular black Cavendish in the U.S. tobacco market, an aromatic mixture of fire-cured and steamed Cavendish that delivers a very rich aroma yet is extremely easy-smok- ing with very little bite, making it an ideal all-day tobacco. It's also a very popular addition to other blends. 1-Q is the best-selling bulk blend in the entire industry, a favorite aro- matic among pipe smokers. A smooth blend of golden Virginia and black Cavendish tobaccos with a touch of vanilla, 1-Q is a longtime market lead- er among bulk blends and a favorite for its pleasing room note. Absent from the market for a number of years, BS-005 is the richest Latakia blend in Lane's tobacco port- folio—a full-bodied, mild- to medi- um-strength English blend of Virginia, Oriental, and Latakia tobaccos that's creamy, cool-smoking, and has a hint of sweetness. Medal of Valor, formerly sold as Medal of Honor before it was dis- continued, is a rich, medium-bodied English-style Latakia mixture that includes Virginias, Burley, and hints of Oriental and Perique.

Aran Mixture is a delicate mixture of ripe Virginia and mild Black Cavendish tobaccos. A top flavor of vanilla and blossom notes are added to deliver a fresh, aromatic pipe tobacco. Connemara Black is an exclusive cherry tobacco which combines a selection of Black Cavendish mixed with Virginia tobaccos, finished with a unique sweet cherry flavor that offers a medium bodied smoke and a delightful room note. Irish Dew is a luxury mixture of well-matured Virginia and toasted Burley tobaccos with whiskey and blossom fruit undertones. A sweet hint of vanilla and touch of chocolate give this blend–which is pressed into cakes and rubbed, enhancing the natural aroma of the tobacco— an exceptional finish. Finally, Wild Atlantic is an elegant blend of loose cut ripe orange Virginia, fine Oriental leaves, and a premium quality Latakia from the Balkans. The generous amount of Latakia provides this rich blend with its unique English Mixture character and a traditional smoky note.
