On the back of the 1977-2017 release is written "Specialists with Virginian and Oriental leaf."

Once you remove the blue wax seal and paper wrapping you find the following product description: "An elegant Matured Virginia ribbon-cut blend, naturally sweet with that clarity of flavour possessed only by the best Virginias. Seasoned lightly with fine, cool smoking Cyprian Latakia. Aged for months to mellow."

This fourth issue released in 2017 bears a blue wax seal and the dates listed are 1977-2017.
