Very tasty! This is my kind of English! This is an English blend using burley instead of VA as the main player and it works. In the pouch it is a brown and dark brown mix, with a very dark spicy pouch aroma. It is somewhat dry but perfect for the blend. It has a very sweet taste, with a full, smooth, creamy taste and the Latakia in it is very sweet and smooth. The Latakia is perfectly proportioned so it lends it's flavor but does not overwhelm and let's the other tobaccos come through nicely. It loaded in my pipe very well, and stayed lit almost all the way down. It had a perfect burn rate, not too fast or hot, yet it allowed me to sip without going out. It was great with a cup of strong Irish tea as my first smoke of the morning. The VA in this blend contributed it's sweetness and the Perique lended just enough of it's spice to waken my tongue. This is one that I could smoke all day. I highly recommend trying it especially if you are a burley lover.
