The Roanoke - Golden
At the time the E&C range was being developed, many of the
mixtures which had established London's well earned position
of dominance, were no longer being made.
One such blend was Freibourg & Treyer's Golden Mixture which
was a Virginia in the truest sense and was composed of all ribbon
cut Virginias of lovely golden color.
McConnell's had manufactured this blend for the F&T shop
in London for many years, but for some reason it was no longer
being sold by them. Ken believed this particular mixture was
among the finest of its type, thus the decision to add it to
the E&C range. Its name comes from the city in southern Virginia,
which is well associated with tobacco. For more information on
