A fantastic Virginia base tobacco with very sweet Turkish added. A mild casing is applied. A true crossover mixture. Full of flavor without latakia.

With all the Reviews on Pipeworks and Wilke's Gotham Court (SO is very similar to GC only IMHO better!) - I am surprised that this one only got 3 Reviews. Even Master Blender Stephen Books felt it necessary to distance himself from it.

Whatever.

This is a Great Unusual Blend of fine tobaccos with a clove like casing. The end result is tasty melange of flavors that tastes like tobacco with a little extra something.

A very clean and spicy blend that is just an anytime kind of smoke - albeit I think the hotter months would suit this the best. Perfect for when it's warm outside and you don't want to get clobbered with a heavy English or VaPer.

If your taste buds are feeling a little jaundiced these days - this blend would be the one to try. Highly Recommended.

For years this was my every day smoke. Steve Books even blended some with Deer tongue for me to create a dessert version. An excellent blend with a cedary spice quality, reminiscent of fine cigars, though I don't believe there is any cigar leaf in it. Unique, in my experience, this does not fit the usual categories, but is well worth a try.
