A John Cotton Sampler Brochure

Blog by Steve Laug

In the bag of tobacco literature there was this small John Cotton Sweet Danish Tobacco blends brochure/flyer. The best phrase is COMPLETELY FREE OF CHARGE. It shows six new blends and gives a  description of what is in each blend. Even the names are interesting to me – Rich Mellow Virginia, Gaelic Mixture, Honeydew, Danish Aromatic, Harvest Gold and Burley. Though I rarely smoke aromatics I always enjoy the language of the older marketing – the descriptive paragraphs are skillfully worded to evoke a Pavlovian response. Enjoy

    Very interesting! Also that they didn’t use choose to use a new pipe for the photo’s, but one with a well blackened bowl top.
