This is a medium to full English that has a Balkan taste due to the higher percentage of Turkish Orientals.
Other than that all the usual suspects are present ie Latakia, Perique, Lemon Virginia and a little white burly.
The tobacco comes in a ribbon cut and is cool smoking.
If you want flavor - this one delivers. I smoked a bowl of this right after a bowl of Park Lane #15 which is a very full English with a lot of Perique - and even after that I still experienced a rich enjoyable smoke from North Point.
Telford's carries a lot of standard Pipe Tobaccos in bulk that they put their Store names on - They also have some excellent House Blends - that they make (they do have an inhouse tobacco blender) and this is one of them.
I plan to review several of their House Blends as I think several are definitely outstanding. This one is Highly Recommended.
