I have managed to sample nearly all of David Meyers' blends (at least those that have been available for the last month) within a short period of time. I have become a very big fan of his creations. My favorite had probably been the 401 up until this week when I began smoking Sheiks D. I had to keep telling myself to slow down on my puffing because the flavor was so delicious.
I detected a nutty flavor immediatly after the char. After a few minutes I noted a natural sweetness followed by a bouquet that I could not quite identify. I like Sultan,s from Milan as well, but I have to say that there is something in the mix of Sheik's that creates a nuttier and naturally sweet flavor. If you are a big fan of Latakia this is worth a try (though Sultan's has a bit more .. and Kings is loaded with it). However, if you are relatively new to English or are a VA smoker this is a great place to start as it gives a slight fruity background beneath the yummy-nutty-mmm-mmm (drool) flavor.
Update 3/31/11 Still like this blend. I'm taking out a star to make it a star as I may have been a tad over enthusiastic on my initial review. After more time, this blend is still really good, but 4 stars was a bit over the top.
