Notes: From P&W's website: I have had many requests for an Virginia based English blend with no latakia, so I'm re-introducing an old Wilke blend #531 (which happens to be Edwin Wilke's birthday). This is a fine blend of Virginia, burley and just the right amount of perique.

The grassy, citrusy Virginia forms the base of the blend. The burley is nutty, earthy, with just a little molasses and toast, and is the most obvious component. The perique provides a little spice and raisins in the background. Has a very mild nic-hit. Won’t bite or get harsh. Burns cool and clean and a little fast with a slightly inconsistent, but routine flavor that suffers from lack of depth in all departments. In the last quarter of the bowl, some of that flavor weakens, reducing it to the verge of being dull. Has a plain after taste. Leaves almost no dampness in the bowl, and requires few relights. Can be an all day smoke.
