Cornell & Diehl - Gillingham Mixture.

It includes some fairly coarse pieces, the darker they are in colour the coarser they are. Some of the brighter Virginias could be called Shag, they're much finer. The pouch exudes a sweet, honey, aroma. It feels a little tacky but not 'wet'.

The smokes prominence goes to the black Cav', fruity Virginias, and Burley. The Burley: at first, like the Perique, seems an exorbitantly delicate addition, but the flavour from it develops quickly, and by a quarter the Burley's overtaken the Virginia, equalling the black Cav' in weight. The mildest tobacco's easily the Perique: I get a faint note of vinegar but very little spice, or idiosyncratic flavours. The honey's a mild, but definite, addition, smoothing and sweetening the entire bowl. Gillingham burns nicely: cool, unwavering, needing little maintenance.

Nicotine: mild to medium. Room-note: pleasant.

Gillingham? In no way is this a poor quality blend, it's a pleasant smoke, but it falls into the category of 'boring blends' to me:

Somewhat recommended.
