The dense jungles of South America are no place for the timid. Every swipe of the machete through the thick growth brought with it a rush of fear. Teeming with wildlife and hostile tribes we were surrounded by danger. Two months it took. Two months hiking in what seemed like circles until we found what we were looking for.
Fields of the finest tobacco leaves known to man. Yet someone had come before us, antiquated distillery equipment lay forgotten, with remnants of a sweet orange liqueur left behind. Blended with the fresh leaf we discovered a smooth and flavoursome formula which we cultivated and bottled to be enjoyed for generations.
Firstly a wonderful sweetness on the inhale, hints of vanilla custard finished with a sun-ripened orange. Then comes the complex fresh tobacco leaf, infused with the orange and vanilla to create a delicious and unique flavour.
A deep and dark jungle is entangled around the label with our Specimen No 5. Inpenetrable undergrowth, ancient trees and vines as thick as your arm. Don't miss the distillery equipment, long forgotten and rusting in the tropic conditions.
