A quality blend on the lighter side of the "English" Tradition, comprising a generous portion of high sugar, bright flue-cured leaf, filled out with rich red Virginias, a hint of Latakia, a bit of light, air-cured for body, and finally seasoned with just enough Perique to smooth the smoke and provide an engaging, fruity spice. Prince's Blend has a delicate taste and aroma and stays alight well, burning to a clean, dry ash, leaving the pipe and the palate clean and refreshed. - Gregory Pease

The mildly grassy, very sugary, deep citrus sweet bright flue cured and air cured Virginias take a lead over the tangy dark fruit, earthy, lightly spicy red Virginias. Both the flue cured and the air cured brights sport a little grassiness. The very nutty, molasses sweet burley also has some earth, and a touch of cocoa in the background. The spice, raisins and plum from the perique continually underscores the experience. The smoky, woody sweet Cyprian latakia is a gentle addition, mostly providing a flavor push to the blend. The nic-hit is just past the mild threshold. The strength and taste levels are a step closer to mild than they are to medium. No chance of bite, and has no dull or harsh moments. It burns at a reasonable pace, cool and clean with a very smoothly sweet, and lightly spicy consistent, subtly nuanced well balanced taste. Requires few relights, and leaves little dampness in the bowl as it easily burns to ash. Has a very pleasant after taste and room note. An easy going all day smoke with a little character. Three and a half stars.
