I believe the descriptive above for this blend was actually intended for Jamestowne Tradition English. I have smoked both the English and the Aromatic versions as they were sent to my local pipe club by Altadis for sampling.
The aromatic version actually contains Burley/Virginia/Black Cavendish and no Latakia or Oriental leaf. It was a little too mild for me (okay, a lot too mild). I thought it would pack more punch due to the Burley/Virginia combination, but the Black Cavendish, (topped with a little something), was added to the point where the RPM's never shot up into the hot zone.
It packed, lit and burned like a contender but the taste was more in line with an also-ran.
