Isle of Skye - Scottish
The name alone gives an image of misty moors in the north of
Scotland. This is a blend of Virginias and Virginia varietals
and contains no burley and therefore no Cavendish or other flavoring
agents. Oh yes...no Scotch whiskey either, just tobacco.
When the E&C range was being developed by Ken McConnell there
were virtually no authentic Scottish mixtures being manufactured.
Most had some form of casing, and all were blended with burley
/ Cavendish, an inexpensive filler which Ken assudiously refused
to use in his premium tobacco mixtures.
As with all the tobaccos in the Elephant & Castle range,
tins of "Isle of Skye" were hand blended in the McConnell
factory on Barking Road in London, England. They are at least
13 years old. For more information on E&C, please click:
