James Barber - Charlies Mixture.

It seems to me that this is just one of the many heavily cased aromatics out there. By no means is it a bad blend, it just lacks anything to make it stand out.

The pouch note perfectly indicates that a strongly flavoured, sweet smoke, is about to proceed. That's the first pointer towards this being one of many.

The Virginia easily outweighs the Black Cavendish; it's about a 75-25% split. It's a little too wet so it needs airing first.

The flavouring has been heavily added, but surprisingly it doesn't bite too bad because of it.

Nicotine? A standard aro' strength: mild. I'd maybe go as far as suggesting it's very mild!

The burn behaves well for the whole pipe long. Providing it's maintained with a tamp or two it causes me no issue.

The room-note is yet another aromatic quality: fairly heavy, fairly sweet, and fairly aromatic.

As I mentioned, this is like many of the common aromatics out there. That's not necessarily a bad thing though, like I've often been told "things only become common because they're good".

Recommended.
