American pipe smokers will find this blend under the name of Golden Extra. The blend is 100% identical to Golden Blend it is just the name that is different in the USA.
Since Golden Blend was introduced back in 1952 it has gained many, many fans all over the world – rightly so. The special selected brown Burley tobaccos, mixed with just a touch of golden Virginia, are carefully pressed and stored. The large slices are cut and partly rubbed up, which makes this blend easy to fill into your pipe. This slowly burning blend is very satisfying and you will enjoy the slight note of chocolate – a note that all good Burley tobacco produces naturally.
