The Original recipe consists of 60% Black Cavendish from the Philippines and Africa mixed with 40% Virginia from Brazil, India and Africa. Be prepared to enjoy a natural tobacco smoke. You'll find it strong but gentle with a clean aroma, and the lightest touch of vanilla. At Cup O' Joes we sell it in 7oz cans (as shown) as well as in 1.5oz pouches.

    I've been happily smoking Borkum for around 40 years, nothing else compares. Before that I smoked Amphora and made the switch.

    This is my go to pipe tobacco for many years now.
    I was a little unsure when the name changed from
    Ultra Light to Original but it seems to be the same
    once I tried it.
