Unsurpassed so-called English Type (Tipo Inglês) in Brazil. Is one of the more best known Brazilian Drugstore Tobaccos. Is a mixture of golden and medium brazilian virginia tobaccos and some sweet Cavendish Tobaccos.

Notes: Produced since 1937, is one of the more Antique Brazilian Blends.

Very Mild Mild to Medium Medium Pleasant

Cavendish, Cavendish everywhere... I am not a big fan of Cavendish, as I feel it gives a stronger tongue bite even if the tobacco smokes cool (and it does smoke very cool).

However, this is a very nice mixture of Virginia and Cavendish, however as the precedent review states, this is not an English mixture. I bought this tobacco when I was on holidays in Brazil, and as I said it is very mild and quite impressive because I am not a big fan of aromatics and Cavendish tobacco.

This tobacco smokes cool and with relatively little tongue bite. The cut is slightly thicker than your regular ribbon cut and burns a bit unevenly. It tastes a bit like honey and vanilla and is very sweet.

Recommended for novice pipe smokers and fans of cool aromatics and Cavendish.

Mild Mild to Medium Mild to Medium Pleasant to Tolerable

It is NOT an English type tobacco. But this doesn't mean it is not pleasant.

If you get it in proper moist level, it doesn't bite, it has a good flavor, nobody complained about its smell, so I guess the room note is ok.

Yes, it is a drugstore tobacco, but I say it's one of the best around. And it's cheap! =D

Medium to Strong Medium Medium Tolerable

Being a pipe smoker in Brazil, where it's hard to find most of the great range of pipe tobaccos existing in the world, one always end up trying some of this, avaiable in many places, at affordable cost. It's our "drugstore" tobacco for exelence. In my opinion, it stays in middle term between aromatic and non-aromatic tobacco. Definitly, it's not an english blend, but also not an full aromatic. The tin aroma is very sweet and it comes with right humidity. Easy to pack and light,it stays lit to the end of the bowl, with no bite at all, sometimes some harshness at the end, if you're not carefull. Better if smoked in a medium size bowl. An all-day smoke, honest, wich main characteristic being regularity.

Medium Mild to Medium Medium Tolerable

"English Class" stands the 200g tin. But this is hardly an English Mixture. It's an aromatic tobacco, may be the oldest in production in Brazil. Its a very good tobacco. The foundation is a light yellow Virginia, supplemented by some Burley and Cavendish. It's topped with some kid of syrup that is a family secret for generations: the Finamore's blend tobaccos in Brazil since early 1900. I can fell chocolate, run and herbs. It comes fresh but not humid, but it do not light easy. Once lighted it remains burning very well, without any bite. For near 30 years of smoking it I can bear my witness for its quality, which justify its popularity in Brazil and, although not a superb blend, you know what you get from it. But its harshness at the end of the bowl is what keeps me from rating it three stars.

Mild Mild Mild Very Pleasant

This is a mild golden Virginia/Burley Mixture, with some golden cavendish tobaccos. It haves a liquor and Vanilla taste and flavour. Is a good tobacco for begginers, and in Brazil is the more easy to find, the main "Drugstore" Blend. However it is so-called "Tipo Ingles" (English Type), this is an uncertain info, since the true "English Mixtures" contains Latakia tobaccos and this not. However, this is an Aromatic Tobacco. The words "Tipo Ingles", "English Type" is because this is one of the more antique Blends in Brazil, and when it begins to be made, nearly 80 years ago, Brasil only had acess to aromatic mixtures that were imported from England. As many other Brazilian Tobaccos, from many companies, this is sold in a good aluminized paper pouch, that preserves the flavour of the tobacco.

Re-Evaluation: The Blend is modified, now, is less flavoured, bu remains still Good. 3 Stars.

Very Mild Very Mild Extremely Mild (Flat) Very Pleasant

The tobacco until is beautiful, I removed it from the pouch and put it in an airtight jar, it has a neutral smell of smoke, but an extremely mild flavor, that with each passing day faded. Its cut is finely chopped, not enough to be a ribbon. The flavor is quite shallow, for either aromatic tobacco or for a neutral tobacco, therefore, leaves no aftertaste. Tends to warm the pipe but not enough to bite, just that those who are smoking "pilote" well and later you will see, not bite nor will warm the pipe...

Mild Mild Mild Pleasant

Unfortuanelly not a good pipe tobacco. Calling it English Mixture is a heresy. There is no latakia here whatsoever and hrdly some decn virginia as well. The base of this blend is a coarse cut burley topped by a casing that resembles matured condensed milk. Burns a bit hot tooo... Cannot recommend this.

poor, flat, and a bit stinky for some noses. Finamore has some nice tobaccos, specially to be used in home-made blends, but this specific one is pretty bad, made me feel like i was smoking not a pipe, but a cigarette... maybe i was in a bad luck and bought a specially dry and poor pouch, but i doubt so.

Medium Mild to Medium Medium to Full Tolerable to Strong

I just could'nt like this blend, the flavor was a bit too strong and it made me a little dizzy after smoking a bowl. I guess I don't like brazilian tobacco, since I also tried Finamore's extra mild cavendish and I still can't finish that one either (also too strong for my aromatic tastes). Not my kind of thing, but I'm sure that many may still find it a great mix, it's up to your tastes, so I'm not gonna say it's a bad quality tobacco, I just did'nt like it.
