This is a full strength, mellow tobacco comprising a blend of dark fired Tanzanian leaf. It starts as 7 lbs. of hand stripped leaf and goes through a steaming process prior to its being pressed. The cake, having been prepared, is wrapped in a selected leaf and packed by hand into a 12 inch square. This cake is pressed and left for a minimum of 2 hours. Then, the pressed cake is placed into a steam press where it is baked at a high heat for two to three hours. The baked cake has then taken on 1792's characteristic rich, dark color. Its hardening occurs during cooling. Once the process of cutting the flake and adding Tonquin flavoring is carried out, hand wrapping and packing finalizes 1792, making it ready for rubbing into your pipe.
