Citrus Virginia, nutty burley and a slight vanilla to the Cavendish are the main components here. With these quality varieties combined with bergamot this blend sends me to my happy place. I am a big fan of Earl Grey tea and Oxford blend delivers for me. Tin note and taste are nearly identical. Loads and fires well, delivers thick white/gray flavorful smoke with no bite or goop. Consistent flavor throughout the experience and leaves little to no dottle with the remains being a fine gray ash. The flavor reminds me more of the Russian Earl Grey tea than the standard English blend, a bit more lemon peel. Leaves a excellent after taste and very good room note. This is a blend the just seems to beg me to smoke it, repeatedly! Will have to say this is one of my top 3 favorite tobaccos and my favorite aromatic. Will lay in several more tins of this for sure. I give it a 4 because that’s the top of the scale. One note here, if you disdain the taste of Earl Grey tea, stay clear of this one(that leaves more for me!).
