Cumberland is another great blend from the Gatlin-Burlier! A mix of Burley, Cavendish, and Latakia in a harmonious balance that smokes smooth, cool, and dry. The Cavendish smooths out the boldness of the Burley and the Latakia adds smoothness and broadens the taste spectrum. With Cumberland you get the best of three types of tobaccos with a complementary flavor balance where one component overcomes the weak points of the other components. The end result is a rich, smoky and somewhat sweet smoke. Cumberland has depth and complexity; one can discern the slight sweetness of the Cavendish, the smooth smokiness of the Latakia and the bold backbone of the Burley. This tobacco is hard to put down once you have a bowl going. I smoked it in a Captain Black billiard made by Orlik.

Great for the days when you want an English, but not one with such broad shoulders. This is a soft semisweet smoky smoke. GReat for all day, and especially for those quiet moments.

For those who like quasi-aromatic English blends or who are just starting to experiment with latakia, I would recommend this in a heartbeat. Like most Gatlin-Burlier products, it poses little danger of biting your tongue and has better-than-average burning characeristics. This is a blend that requires numerous bowls to appreciate, as I've found that it has a lot of complexity that doesn't reveal itself in a briar until you've thoroughly seasoned your pipe with it. For a long time, it was also my favorite blend when breaking in a briar exclusively for English tobaccos. It's nowhere near as strong as, say, Nightcap, but it builds a respectable cake in very little time.

This is basically a more powerful version of, say, Frog Morton.
