A classic mixture, Trafalgar sets smooth, exotically spicy Turkish tobaccos in perfect balance with a variety of fine bright and red Virginia leaf, and just enough Latakia for an elegant "English" style, with a crisp, dry taste and a subtle campfire-like aroma. The result is a rich, stylish tobacco with lots of character, and enough complexity to keep the smoker engaged throughout the bowl, and throughout the day. - Gregory Pease

The earthy, tangy dark fruit red Virginia also has a touch of vinegar, sugar and spice. The citrusy, lightly sugary, toasty and grassy bright Virginia is a shade less obvious. The buttery sweet, dry, sour and floral, woody Turkish adds a little spice in an important supporting position. The smoky, woody sweet Cyprian latakia plays a complementary role. A whisper of perique provides raisins and spice, though it’s often not very noticeable. The nic-hit is a shade closer to medium than it is to mild. Medium in strength, the taste level is a step above that. There’s no chance of bite or harshness. Well balanced, you’ll observe nearly all the inherent aspects of the tobaccos in every puff. Burns at a moderate rate with a cool and clean, deeply rich, fairly smooth consistent flavor. Requires an average number of relights, and leaves little dampness in the bowl. Not quite an all day smoke, but certainly worth repeating during your smoking day. Has a full after taste, and a smoky campfire room note that may chase your mother-in-law away. You may be grateful for that.

This is a very enjoyable Full English. When opening the tin I can smell the Latakia but its not as apparent as some other English blends I have smoked. The taste of the Latakia is there in spades once lit though. Not a Lat bomb but refined to the palate. The taste is pure English as there are no sour notes which to me denotes a Balkan. I find this slightly Fuller than Levant. This is not to take anything away from Levant - sometimes I want a classy smokey refined English - while others I want to get a down and dirty earthy Balkan. Think of it like comparing Ale - if Levant is a Double IPA - Trafalgar would be a Guiness. This is a Delicious, Complex and slightly Chocolately. A Great Fall/Winter Blend. Highly Recommended!

I rarely smoke two pipes full of tobacco in a day. I did with Trafalgar. I bought this before knowing that it was blended by Greg Pease. I would have guessed this based on the quality of the tobacco. It has a typically English, woody and musty tin aroma. It immediately reminded me of what Rattray's Seven Reserve USED to be when I smoked it every day. It is bit stronger than that, but mild enough to keep my tongue from chapping. This is truly an all-day smoke. The character is wonderfully sweet and spicy, and the room note like a small campfire. I love this tobacco. I have a 100 gram tin opened and stored in a sealed jar and put another 200 grams in the cellar. I also bought several other Druquer & Sons based solely on the taste of this tobacco. I smoked it a Bruce Weaver Lovat. The tobacco lights on the first try and is of perfect smoking condition right out the tine. It required only one re-lighting and burned to a fine gray ash. I can't say enough good things about Trafalgar. Admiral Nelson would be proud of the blend! : )
