Gawith & Hoggarth's Dark Birds Eye pipe tobacco is a blend of dark-fired 'whole leaf' Virginias and mid-rib fine cut Kentucky leaf that is rolled and sliced. The mid-rib (or stem) gives the 'birds eye' effect when it's cut. Dark Birds Eye is a strong smoke that was particularly favored by fishermen since the finer cut meant the tobacco was easier to light and to keep in the bowl on board ship when the weather was bad.
Dark Birds Eye is available in 1 oz bulk size increments. Please contact us if you wish to purchase this item in the 500g (17.5 oz) bulk size.
