Description

The Charatan Royal Escape is a high quality tobacco made from the best bronzed Virginia leaves. These are carefully conditioned and added to rich, heavy bodied Virginias. Finally a unique flavour is added to complete the blend and enhance the subtle piquant aroma.

In 1863 Frederick Charatan, opened a shop in Mansell Street, London where he began to carve Meerschaum pipes. These got very popular very quickly and Charatan moved to a bigger workshop in Prescott street. Here he began to make the briar pipes that made the name Charatan World famous. on the retirement of his father in 1910 Reuben Charatan took over the family business and the business was wholly owned by the Charatan family until 1960.

During the noughties, Dunhill tobacco of London, through the House of Edgeworth introduced a range of Charatan cigars, manufactured exclusively for the UK cigar smoker. However British American Tobacco (Dunhill Tobacco of London) made the decision in December 2016 to withdraw from the hand made cigar and pipe tobacco market in 2017.

So to combat this announcement Tor Imports made a successful approach to purchase the Charatan brand from Dunhill Tobacco of London allowing them to keep the brand alive.

Tor started work to launch a Charatan Pipe Tobacco with their Global pipe tobacco manufacturer in 2017 to create and test replica blends with the pipe clubs around Europe and the UK with a view to introducing a brand new range of Pipe tobaccos on exhaustion of the current stock of the Dunhill range. It took months before they were happy that they had achieved the blends to be as close a possible. 

Tasting Notes

Truly, a high quality tobacco. Highest quality bronzed Virginia leaves are carefully conditioned and are added to rich, heavy bodied Virginias, noted for their aroma. A unique flavour is added to final blend to enhance the subtle piquant aroma. This mixture is ideal for smoking when in company amongst friends when scaling a yacht.

I used to love the Dunhill morning tobacco but this is not the same. I would not recommend it for a morning smoke it has a real chemical taste to it especially on first light. The taste settles down a bit after tampering and is ok with a nice scotch on an evening but certainly not a first bowl for me.. I will stick with an aromatic blend for that.

The Charatan tobacco arrived safely yesterday. I am really happy with the tobacco. Its very close if not the same as London mixture. Its quite a bit moister than the Dunhill. Required a small amount of dry time. No problem for me. The Virginias are sweeter and the orientals are dryer tasting. I actually think its a little better. Although it has been 8 months since I last smoked the Dunhill blend. Overall very happy with the product and thank you to C.Gars Ltd for excellent customer service.
