It took one of America's top tobacco blenders, Happy Wiglesworth (yes, that's the man's name!) nearly four years to achieve the blend called "KB2" - the mix of tobaccos that makes Kentucky's Best® brand cigarettes so darn good.
It's about 65% Premium Grade Flue-Cured Tobaccos (grown mostly in Virginia and the Carolinas) and about 25% Premium Grade Toasted Air-Cured Burley Tobaccos (mostly from Kentucky).
The expensive process of toasting the burley is skipped by many cigarette makers, but at Farmer's we know it's necessary to mellow the flavor and even the burn. The other 10% of the blend is top-quality Oriental tobacco from the Mediterranean to bring out the flavors of the Burleys.
Just premium-grade leaf tobaccos expertly blended. That's why you'll notice that Kentucky's Best® cigarettes have such a long, slow burn.
Other cigarettes are gone after a few puffs - not Kentucky's Best®. Like Happy Wiglesworth says, "Blend 'em right and pack 'em tight!" That's how you make a great cigarette.
Once you've tried Kentucky's Best®, we believe you'll appreciate the time, effort and expense that went into making it.
