The Kendal Mixed No.17 MTL is a high quality, blend of the finest Burley and Virginia leaves, which have been top dressed with an uplifting Menthol flavouring. The mixed blends have a little more bite than the Gold for those who enjoy more flavour but don’t want the overpowering harshness of the Kendal Dark tobacco’s. All of the tobacco’s in the Kendal Shag Tobacco range are very clean, containing very little of the stem and produce a very natural flavour without the chemical harshness present in many modern tobaccos.
The use of Shag Tobacco:
Due to some hand rolling smokers using shag tobacco for hand rolling purposes, HMRC have taken action to stop this abuse of the tobacco taxation. HMRC have defined that any tobacco where the strands are less than 1.5mm will be taxed as a Hand Rolling tobacco. All shag tobacco produced as of January 2011 will be cut above 1.5mm. This is a pipe tobacco and is taxed accordingly. It is a criminal offence to use shag tobacco for hand rolling and we at Havana House do not endorse this.
