John Cotton's Smyrna was a favorite among connoisseurs. This was a rich, spicy and smoky classic that was a go-to for pipe lovers around the world...and then it was gone. The new owners of this classic brand approached Russ Ouellette to recreate their blends. Through diligent research and sampling vintage tins to help jog Russ' memories of the flavors, Standard Tobacco Company of Pennsylvania is now ready to bring this classic back.
A combination of carefully matured Virginias, fragrant and zesty small-leaf Turkish tobaccos and plenty of Cyprian Latakia, John Cotton's Smyrna is deep and bold, and a perfect meditative repast.
William Serad, who used to do the Trial by Fire reviews for Pipes & Tobaccos magazine, was a big fan of Smyrna in its heyday. After sampling the pre-production version, he told us that it is the finest and most faithful reproduction of a classic blend he has ever tried. Try it yourself to see what he's talking about.
