A ready rubbed mixture based on a heat fermented VA Black
As further components, it contains flecks of a VA/Latakia flake and
- mostly for the looks - a few spots of bright Mysore VA. Sweet
an discreetly smoky at the same time - a fine, gently spicy tidbit.

A mostly dark ready rubbed, with a ready rubbed BC flake as a unique component. The tin aroma is something all its own; the Latakia is noticeable, but so is the sweetness of the BC. Not overwhelming though.
The leaf lights up OK. The taste, like the tin aroma, is unique. There is spice from the Latakia, sweetness from the BC and VA. The Latakia is noticeable in the room note, but not overly strong. The taste is pretty much constant throughout the bowl, with the Latakia coming through a little more towards then end. I am going to order more, in bulk-sized packages.
This could be a great introduction to English blends for the aromatics smokers. In my estimation, it would even be suitable to complete beginners. Completely unique mixture, tasty and well-behaved.
