A connoisseur's natural blend of Virginia and Curly Cut, with Perique and Syrian Latakia to enhance the taste but not overwhelm. Round, full flavor for sophisticated pipe smokers, yet a pleasant, classical "tobacco shop" aroma.

This has a dry taste with very little sweetness. The spiciness and raisin/fig flavor of the perique, and the smokey, woody, dry Syrian latakia slightly overpower the grass, hay and citrus of the Virginia, but you will notice it as a base for the other components. I also sense a slight soda note. This is a straight forward English blend with mild complexity. Don't puff it too fast or it may get a little warm/harsh on your tongue, though it won't bite. Burns at a moderate pace with a fairly consistent flavor. Leaves virtually no moisture in the bowl, and needs few relights. The nic-hit is slightly more than mild. Has a nice after taste. Not quite an all day smoke.

This blend may not be at the top of my list of blends to smoke, yet it is still worthy. The spicy treatment of the Virginia dominates the the experience and requires a slow smoke to avoid bite. Still, this is a multi-dimensional blend with soft contributions by the Perique and Syrian leaf. I found the addition of a small amount of Dubeck to be beneficial in moderating the sharp character of the bright Virginia and bringing out it's rich expression reminicient of a more Red Virginia taste. A stronger Syrian presence would be more rewarding... The full flavor develops as the bowl is smoked in a slow climax. The more I smoke it, the better I like it. Subtle nuances in this blend take patience to notice. Is it a great blend? No, but it's good.

Well-blended Virginia with a hint of Latakia. Did not notice the Perique. As the advertisement states, the Latakia will not overwhelm you and stays well in the background. Burns mild and clean. Not a bad blend, not a great one either, considering what I paid for it, will probably not try it again as I do not think it worth the price. However, I do like it better than MacBaren?s Virginia Latkia blend as at least the Orientals are noticeable.
