There is nothing like well aged Vintage Pipe Tobacco. It beats anything made in the last few decades. There is no substitute for aging even if everything else remains the same in a blend. Almost all the vintage pipe tobacco we offer was made in the UK, and is marked as such.

We don't guarantee Vintage tins as there are too many variables but we do our best to insure that they are most likely to be of good standard. As with Vintage wines or cigars so with Vintage pipe tobacco. There are no guarantees. There can be microscopic air leaks that we can not see etc. They are sold as is.
Prices are as marked.

Every tin is in VG - EX condition with no rust, unless otherwise noted, there may be the odd ding but we have checked as best able that it has not affected the tins integrity, etc. (unless otherwise noted) only the normal sign of use & maybe some tarnishing on the tins.
Gallaher's Latakia - 50 gms x 1 $ 75.00 The best we can figure is 30+ years old. Pre 1990 and was replaced by the more familiar Green rectangular tin.  
I know nothing about this except it is Made in the United Kingdom (Marked on the back). I have only seen this once before. I am guess it is an all or mainly Virginia. 100gm x 1 $ 75.00 
Mullingar's Irish Made pre 1990. So at least 27 years of age on this tin. 1 x 50 gms $ 55.00. This one no one i know has ever heard off. Kenmar and Moyhall both mad by Mullingar's are well regard as up there with the best of e st of the form the Golden Age of pies tobacco. I suspect this will in the similar category.
Barry Levin Blackwood 1999 100gms $ 75.00 1 tin.
James Upshall English Classic made by McConnell's UK circa 2000. 100 gms x 2 tins $ 65.00 each. This long gone McConnell's made blend was one of those light English style tobaccos with a lot of that well aged McConnell's Virginia and some Cyprian Latakia to give it zest. Unusually it is full flavored but not strong. a very good all day smoke.
Capstan Navy Cut Medium Flake - 2 tin x 50 gms circa 1985 - $ 145.00 Just after taking over the blending of this one from the Wills family, this is the still Capstan Navy Cut Made in England 1995 Respected as one of the finest Flakes specially processed from old Virginia leaf.

H. Simmons - 1996 - that mean Burlington Arcade same as where Sullivan was made. 1 x 50 gms $ 75.00 Never smoked this one. Says aromatic bouquet with no additives or artificial flavors. That means some way of treating some Virginia with heat and maybe a herb to. Very, very rare.
Durbar Dunhill /Murrays pre 2005. 1 x 50 gms $ 75.00 - One of Dunhill's lighter English blends with Latakia (Cyprian) , Orientals and a solid Virginia base.

Dunhill Nightcap - the original made in the UK. 1 x 50 gms $ 125.00 Lots of Latakia, smooth small Orientals with a rich Virginia's and a touch of Perique. A very full bodied string flavored tobacco for the evening.

H. Simmons Burlington Arcade UK - Down The Road. 1 x 50 gms $ 155.00 It is a spicy Oriental blend with what a lot of bright. I have had a number of tins over the years, and always found it exceptionally smooth. It has a touch of sweetness with the Latakia just discernable. The predominant taste is of wonderful Virginias that burn to a clean white ash.
Barry Levin Bombay Extra 1999 1 x 100gms $ 75.00 2 tin.
Murrays Mellow Mixture - this is a 100gm tin x 1 $ 135.00 It is positively ancient with no rattle or sounds. By the style of the tin I estimate it is for the late 1950's to very early sixties. It first appeared in 1862 and is the 1st tinned tobacco. It is mainly Virginia with some Latakia. It makes an excellent late day to evening smoke. I have smoked it a number of times of times and found it always satisfying.
Barneys Punchbowle - 1983 $ 145.00. 1 x 50 gm UK Made. This is John Sinclair made by Murray's.
This is mixture for those who enjoy full English Latakia/Virginia. Its strength and fullness is up there with Balkan Sobranie and Nightcap. It is more to sweet side than sour and a full taste. This tobacco does have a goodly helping of Latakia. A smoky, musty, woodsy odor wafts from a freshly opened tin. The great age has caused the different leaf to meld. I smoke this in the winter and it it is one of my favorites. email us if interested or call 1-888-782-1410

McConnell Maduro UK Made that makes this a very rare 50 gm tin that is from 1988, 29 years old. $ 55.00 1 tin x 50 gm. McConnell's Maduro smokes cool and is a unique smoke due to the cut. A few bowls a day can be smoked without stressing the palate. The added cigar leaf is barely noticeable. A bowl of this has a slow burn rate with lingering flavor.
Royal Yacht - Murrays 3 x 50 gms tin. $ 75.00 each. 200-2005 app.
Dunhill Royal Yacht 1 tins. 1981-90 made by Murrays UK. 2 oz's. - $ 75.00 each. An all Virginia blend most aged between 3-5 years to give the blend a natural rich sweetness. There are light and rich heavier cooler Virginias. A unique flavor is created by the subtle use of different leaf and cuts along with a piquant aroma. Truly a deluxe tobacco. The new post 2000 Orlick stuff is not a spot on this.

Dunhill Ready Rubbed 1997 Made in the UK. 1 x 50 gms $ 75.00 It is Virginias with a possibly condiment tobacco - it might be cigar leaf. It seems to have a very mild topping.
Dunhill Early Morning Pipe Tobacco - made by Murrays pre -2000. 5 x 50gm five pack. $ 375.00 We have three 5 packs. This is an a great start to the day tobacco and can work most of the day. It is an English with rich Virginai's and Latakia but lighter than say Standard Mixture as it is meant to be - the name says it all. This is the original Murrays that is richer than the current pale Orlick version being made. It is an ideal tobacco if you wear wool suits and enjoy misty mornings with a strong cup of tea. Actually it works anywhere anytime.

McClelland # 8 Qty 2 x 100 gms. 2001. $ 35.00 English/Oriental Mixture.
Dunhill Mild Blend Made in UK 4 x 50 gms $ 60.00 each. These were produced before 2005 giving them a minimum 12 years of aging. This is an aged Virginia coarse cut Burley blend. The tobacco is mostly rubbed out. The predominate note is mostly Burley and probably the best Burley you may ever smoke. The Virginias are basically condimental. Together and creating a superb taste. This why when Dunhill tobaccos were UK made - and this is - they were consistently considered among the very best
Pelican MADE IN DENMARK 2007 - 50 gm x 1 tin $ 75.00 each. With the good 10 years of aging this should smoke very mellow. Mike Butera told me this was the best of Pelican production runs. Better than the UK one.

Ashton - Fragrant Blend 1 x 100 gm tin $ 75.00. 1980's. This is the original Robert McConnell's UK blended tin dated to the late 1980s. The primary ingredient in this blend is a broad leaf Virginia which has been cut straight out of a 16 lb. block matured under cold pressure for two weeks. Added to this is a jet black Cavendish, shiny and enriched by pressure and heat. Mottled Red Virginia and an equal portion of dark brown Maduro then complete the blend. The whole is then passed through a copper cylinder where fruit essences are added and sealed into the tobacco by contact with the copper stove. The blend then lies 'bulked up' for a further week when the various flavors intermingle to produce a unique blend.
Ashton Black Parrot UK Made 4 oz's. Qty 1 tins. of aging $ 85.00

Sullivan Powell Special Mixture 1992 - 2 x 2 oz's - $ 155.00 UK Made. In the same vein as Gentleman's Mixture, but heavier on the Latakia and lighter on the Virginia and Oriental components. Very rich and smoky blend that has real spine. I love to smoke this one on a winters night with a substantial libation, after a solid meal.
Rothschilds - English Mixture UK Made (probably by Murray's) 10+ years. $ 125.00. Qty 2
I have smoked it and it is up with the best of the UK Made tobaccos. Latakia with a medium hand, Turkish for that smoothness on a dark Virginia base.

Butera Royal Vintage Dark Stoved 2001. $ 55.00 1 tin 50 gms. 15 years of aging on this flake should make it sing.

Davidoff Royalty - 50 gms $ 45.00 2010. Qty. 2.
Probably one of their best mixtures. A light latakia blend of predominately virginias and orientals. The color is mostly light with streaks of black and the cut is a ribbon. The tobacco taste is of sweet virginia with a subtleties and overtones of Orientals, including a light dose of latakia. It is is a good solid smoking mixture, not complex but a enjoyable flavor without bite. This is a tobacco that ages well and the 5 years aging will make it very smooth.
Samuel Gawith Balkan Flake 2010 - QTy 5 tins. $ 28.00 One of my favorite flakes combing the rich full tasting slow burning Virginai Flake with a definite bunt of lightly spicy Latakia. Goes exceedingly well after a diner of lamb chops, mint sauce, potatoes/French Fries accompanied by a Kim Crawford Pinot Noir. For an evening smoke goes well with Laphroaig.
Samuel Gawith - The Mayors Chocolate Flake 2005 Qty 1 tin x 50 gm. $ 28.00 Burley/Virginia with some Cyprian Latakia , noticeable but not prominent and of course notes of Chocolate. Whether they actually use chocolate I am not sure. I enjoy it after a steak diner, particularly Rib Eye as it nicely compliments the slight bone sweetness of of the steak. Also goes well with a full bodied red wine with a higher tannin level, Spanish Rojas work well accompanied by English Stilton. Surprising works well with Stout.
Davidoff English Mixture UK made. slightly aromatic. 1997. Qty 1 tin x 50 gm.
One of the few aromatics I will smoke as the taste is predominantly English, meaning Virginias, Oriental and maybe a hint of Latakia. 50 gms. $ 45.00
Simmons Burlington Arcade UK. 1 x 50 gm tin. SOLD Rich Yellow Virginia as a basic mixture is rounded off smoky Latakia and a powerful Kentucky. Classic, English. I am not sure if the description i correct because there is a German version of this tobacco floating around that may or not be similar. This is UK made. This tin is pre 2002 because the tax stamp is in DM.
John Cotton's No. 1 Mild - UK Made Original - SOLD John Cotton’s started making tobacco in 1770 so by the late 80’s – 1980’s that is - when they closed down they certainly had long perfected their art. No. 1 Mild is very similar to No.1 & No. 2 Medium but lighter & milder it was an all day smoke being a medium with Syrian Latakia. “Balance" is the word for this mixture. Virginia’s, Orientals and just enough Latakia (Syrian) make this a very smooth smoke. Not overly smoky or heavy in the air but enough Latakia to satisfy.
Penzance by Esoterica 1 x 225 gms. SOLD a good 10 years of aging on this one. This is an Oriental/English blend. There i alight helping of Latakia giving the blend a fine, not heavy strength. This ai full flavored in the rich and creamy sense of the word. What is especially good is that for a full mixture it is not fatiguing.
Erinmore Plug 25 gms x 1 SOLD. This small plug's are normally sold in Ireland and the UK only. This has at least 12 years of aging.
Germains 1820 - this tin style dates it to circa 1990. 1 x 50 gms SOLD A classic English with Latakia, Virginai and Orientals Know for its extreme smoothness of smoke.
John Sinclair's true 1980s Made in England Craven Mixture in 50g tins. 9 ALL SOLD$ 115.00 UK production ceased in the late 1980's early 1990's. Prices are a little better than previously as we got this group of tins at a lower cost.
Original production began back in the 1860’s, and the Sinclair family kept producing this to the original recipe that included Syrian Latakia, small leaf Orientals and the best well aged Virginia leaf. Many smokers say was the best tobacco ever made. I smoke this whenever I can, it is absolutely superb. John Sinclair also made Barney’s Ideal Mixture, Parson’s Pleasure and Punchbowle. A master-blending house, sadly long gone.
