Fader's - Carroll's Blend
The base is Fader's #325 combined with our other blend Turkish Knights. After blending these two, additional Latakia is added for fullness and richness. An excellent full bodied smoke!

This is rapidly becoming my favorite sweet English. It has a distinctively Fader?s piquancy: nutty, sour and subtle with a spicy nudge. It?s the toned down version of Mo Goodrick for the smoker seeking the perfect all day English. It's the perfect compromise of latakia and oriental, with neither adding or detracting from the other. There?s not a whole lot I can say other than it being basic, good, friendly and comfortable on the palate. What more could a pipe smoker ask for? As long as Fader?s does not tamper with the blend, as so many others have (Dr. Bradley, all of C & D), this will be a regular favorite. Fader's and Peretti are my favorite blenders, though the latter's tobaccos are much stronger and nicotineous.
