The Smoker blends don't seem to get reviewed. They were re-launched by P&C a little while ago and Russ Oulette did a good job romanticising "The Smoker" and Mel Feldman. These blends are expensive at 10.95 for 1.5oz. They were recently on sale so I tried 4 of them cause I'm a sucker for romanticism.

Up first is Goldring. The virginias are smooth and form a solid spine with more than enough latakia for smokey creaminess. The perique is there just for a bit of zip and the turkish is subdued in the background.

This is a very good blend and I certainly could see myself smoking it on a regular basis -- except for the regular price. Judging from the dust on the lid of my can I have a feeling these blends are not flying off the shelf.

this is a heavy english blend.it has plenty of latakia & perique,although blended very well so that neither one is overpowering but thrir presence is very much there.virginia gives it a slight sweetness and a pleasant tang. i find it far preferable to nightcap, for instance.in fact this blend is what many other english/balkans want to be try this,really,a great blend.
