Manufactured in a century-old brick building in picturesque Lauenburg, Germany, Dan pipe tobacco has gained quite a worldwide reputation among smokers, with a wide variety of blends and cuts on offer. Andreas Mund became the successor in charge of production when master blender Jürgen Westphal retired, and is assisted by Heiko Behrens as well as Michael Apitz of Dan Pipe.
The Mallard from Dan Tobacco is a pure Virginia ribbon-cut mixture featuring Virginias from Zambia, all carefully fermented and aged. With no added flavorings, it highlights the natural sweetness and richness of Virginia tobaccos. In the The Mallard Flake Plus Perique version, that base of Virginias is complemented by a touch of Perique before being pressed and cut into flakes.
***Available in 50g tins, this blend will only be available for a very short time with a very limited run. *
