A friend just gave me half a tin from the 80's, complaining that it burned out too fast. I have not had that experience, but I thought it grand. Top of the bowl was dry, Va-forward, cool & light in flavor. Mid-bowl the flavor picked up a lot, the lat coming thru in delightful waves. Bottom was still smooth & cool, but heavily latakia-forward & much sweeter. I will try some modern SIllem's because this was a real treat.

Don't think this is made anymore, but when I got this early 90's tin I just had to review it. I wonder if anyone else has tried it? I really like the way a mild English tastes when aged for a while. Fermented Virginia, noticable yet muted Latakia, smooth and no harshness whatsoever. It has a rather caramel aroma in the tin and this carries over to the smoke.
