I had asked quite some time for this blend to be added, and then forgot to follow up on it until now. Oops! Oh, well, better late than never.
In summary, this is a medium intensity English blend, somewhat sweet, but not overpoweringly so. It behaves fairly well in the pipe, not leaving much (if any) goop.
I do find it a bit sweet for my tastes, and feels a bit when smoking like a crossover aromatic English blend i.e. there's definitely casing, it's not heavy by any means, but it's there.
It doesn't seem to run hot, but that said, I do get a bit of tongue bite from it, not much, pretty typical for me with most bright Virginias and there must be some in the mix here.
If you are looking for a lightly sweet English blend that behaves itself in the pipe, I'd give this a whirl.
