Many customers come to the shop looking for "grandad's blend." Old Fashioned relies on a base of Virginia and Burley, and a light topping is applied by hand. W. O. Larsen brings their unique legacy in the blending process. They use a variety of cuts for the pipe tobacco, and then press combination before a round of aging. Try this for a nostalgic pipe smoke.
After I loaded up a bowl, I smoked Old Fashioined all the way down. The Burely shined for me with its nuttiness, and the Virginias add a touch of mollasses. As for the topping, I would say it's a touch of sugar or honey that accents the natural sweetness of the tobacco. The body moved to the mild + range for me. I enjoyed the traditional smoke and would recommend Old Fashioned from W. O. Larsen to anyone looking for that vintage tobacco flavor.
