This classic blend brings together the finest mellow Georgian Virginias, Black Cavendish, Mexican Burleys and Cyprus Latakia. This distinctively non-aromatic blend produces an astonishing array of refined flavors ranging from mild to medium strength. English lovers will appreciate the pleasures of this exceptionally mellow blend.

The Virginias are grassy, a little earthy with some citrus as they form a base for the other components. The Cyprian latakia is smokey, woody sweet and doesn’t dominate, but always makes its presence known as you would expect, though it does seem to lack a little of the force that I expected. The nutty sweet burleys are mostly in the background. The black cavendish has a touch of creamy vanilla as it helps to smooth out the blend. Has a mild nic-hit and doesn't bite. It burns at a moderate pace, cool and clean with few relights. Leaves very little moisture in the bowl. Two and a half stars.

Picked up a small bag of all Finck's tobacco on a recent trip to San Antonio

I'm sure this is some other Blend just relabeled, But Most small shops do this. Whatever it is, I like it. It is great 1st thing in the morning with a cup of coffee Not too moist, lite easily, didn't bite me. Taste is right down the middle, not too strong either

I would consider this in large Bulk but Fincks prices are way too high. Being in Texas They penalize us for some goofy reason and add extra taxes'

I received a 14oz bag of this last week and broke the seal last night to taste. I was hopeful that at less than $21/lb. I had bought something both affordable and worthy of stockpiling. Alas, no. I have both Peter Stokkebeye's English Luxury and English Oriental Supreme on hand and this is definitely NOT either (at this time). In the bag it gave off a hint of "Englishness", but that did not carry through under fire. What Latakia is in it was lost. The rest of the "astonishing array of refined flavors" were too muddled to identify unless one considers notes of celery seeds and parsley among that array. The very narrow ribbon cut looked more like cigarette shag, and indeed, toward the end of each trial bowl I felt that I had just smoked a cigarette (despite the few strands of darker tobaccos in it). My wife even commented that it smelled like a cigarette. Smokable? Yes. Worth stockpiling? Not really.
