A ND why is VELVET so different you ask?
VELVET is milder because it is naturally
aged; VELVET is smoother smoking because it is
naturally aged; VELVET is cooler and slower
burning because it is naturally aged.
Natural ageing for two full years in wooden
hogsheads is the key to VELVET'S success.
Experience has taught us that natural ageing is
the only way to bring the best out of Kentucky's
choice Burley Tobacco.
And this best?in its most convenient form?is
