For many decades this unique blend was one of Drucquer's most popular, and was even known to have comforted members of Admiral Richard Byrd's crew during their second Antarctic expedition. The finely balanced combination of Virginia tobaccos, white and brown Burleys, and just a bit of Latakia and Perique keeps Inns of Court in high regard. A lighter blend with a complex, nutty taste and wonderful, nostalgic aroma that is sure to suit many palates. Fill your bowl and enjoy a taste of history! - Gregory Pease

The very nutty, deep molasses sweet, toasty brown burleys have a hint of cocoa, and takes a little lead over the other components. The red and more obvious bright Virginias offer a bit of citrus, a little tangy dark fruit and earth, and a light grass note in a support role. The white burley sports a very mild dry, woody sharp hit in the background. The smoky, woody sweet Cyprian latakia is slightly more than a condiment, while the spice, raisin and plum aspects of the perique are condimental. A pinch of black cavendish provides a little brown sugar. The nic-hit is a step beyond the mild level. The strength and taste are just past the center of the mild to medium threshold. No chance of bite, and has no weak or harsh spots. Burns at a moderate pace, cool and clean with a fairly smoothly sweet consistent flavor all the way to the finish. Provides lots of smoke, requires few relights, and leaves little dampness in the bowl as it easily burns to ash. Has a sweetly pleasant after taste and room note. A fairly easy going all day sweet American English smoke. Three and a half stars out of four.

The first time I walked into Drucquer & Sons University Ave. shop in the early eighty's this was one of the first blends recommended to me, and smoked it regularly. After finishing five bowls, I have to say that this is better than the original. The taste is about what I remember, semi sweet, rich but mild all day smoke that leaves a pleasant after taste on your palate wanting more, but it seems like a more refined and complete blend. The old version had a tendency to smoke a little hot and bite if not careful, this does not. Greg thanks for bringing back an old friend, you did good.

Nutty, Complex. Hint of Latakia, smooth tasting, and absolute joy to smoke. So what's not to like? Tastes just like I remembered it. Glad to see this back in production. Highly recommended!
