Six tobaccos, including cigar leaf, are woven together to create an English-style taste that is hard to define. Balanced, so that no one element will be overwhelming.

Very Mild Mild Mild to Medium Pleasant

Ed must be a lover of tobacco that falls somewhere between oriental, burley, English and Middleton's Walnut. I got tastes of all of these while smoking this amazing blend in a range of briar pipes. Finally found the right one -- an older Kaywoodie.

JP is something of a wizard of the leaf, and his blends defy classification in general. This one is even harder to pin down. I suppose that the mysterious Ed must have asked for something a little bit like a lot of other tobaccos, but all at once. And that's what he got.

Starts out very mild, the cigar very muted, and you can taste some spice. Then you get that usual JP harshness, but only slightly, before the other tobacco flavours kick in -- burley, possibly some Va, and the oriental/Turkish.

Highly complex, and a worthy addition to JP's line-up. Somewhere between Storm Front and Moe's Confetti, because there is a kind of semi-aromatic note to it from time to time.

This will be in my now-crowded rotation. What with JP's other blends, and the rest of what the market has to offer, I am lucky if I get to smoke more than one of each per week.

In the pouch it is has a sweet kind of musty leather smell to it which i really like. It has a non-uniform cut but packs well. On first light i got a strong smokey flavor but after a couple of puffs a creamy sweetness came through with just a hint of spiciness. this remade through out the bowl. I did have to relight several time but i chalk that up to be just being a newbie.

I enjoyed this blend. It was full bodied, had lot's of flavor, the latakia did not drown out the other tobaccos and it is creamy and bold. It allows the cigar leaf to come through very nice. While not something a hardcore English smoker would think perfect, it is a good change of pace. It is a multi colored tobacco with a leathery English aroma in the pouch. It loads very well, it is dry but not to much so and lites very easily. I smoked a large billiard of this without having that lingering aftertaste so many Latakia English blends do to my palette. John is very good at mingling cigar leaf in his blends. I enjoyed this one and it for sure is worth a try.

Virginias, Orientals, and to a lesser degree, Latakia make this a new introduction to Latakia. While there is a slight sweetness from the Virginia, theres also some spice from the Oriental. The cigar leaf stays in the background, and doesnt slap you in the face, but is still noticeable. My go-to blend when I get Home From Work.

Holy mother of God! This stuff is horrible! It tastes like it was made from dry oak leaves and urine. Run away from this blend.

This was an interesting tobacco to smoke. On the charring light I got cigar leaf causing a slightly bitter taste. Then on the second light and settling into the smoke the tobacco smoothed out to a slightly sweet at times, earthy, spicy with latakia overtone thrown in but at no time did one taste sensation over power the other. It was a finely balanced blend of tobacco each ingredient having a role and participating equally in achieving a flavour that was very pleasing and gave me the want of a longer smoke.
