This classic English blend brings together Orientals, black cavendish, Mexican burleys and Cyprus latakia resulting in an exotic flavor, uniquely its own. This distinctly non-aromatic blend produces an astonishing array of refined flavors ranging from mild to medium strength. This is a true Balkan mixture and is our biggest selling English mixture – a long time favorite.

Mild to Medium Extremely Mild Mild to Medium Pleasant to Tolerable

The mildly spicy, woody, smoky, lightly floral and sour Orientals take a little of the lead here. The smoky, woody sweet Cyprian Latakia is a supporting player. The nutty, earthy, barely sweet burleys are a condiment at best.The grassy, citrusy Virginias have a touch of earth, and are a rung less obvious than the burley. The vanilla-ish, lightly creamy black cavendish provides a little smoothness in a minor role. The strength is at the center of mild to medium, and the taste is a step past that level. The nic-hit is just past the mild mark. Won’t bite or get harsh, but has hints of a rough edge at times. Well balanced, it burns cool and clean at a moderate pace with a mostly consistent flavor. Leaves little moisture in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. Has a lightly lingering pleasant after taste. An all day smoke.
