I love this flavor profile. Virginias in the lead closely followed by the Latakia with the Cavendish and the Kentucky as a base. Medium bodied and very tasty. Only problem is the Virginias do a little biting. It's not real bad, but it's bad enough to irritate and be a distraction. No matter how fast or slow I smoke it gets me. I hardly ever get bit, but I have to concede defeat here. Since biting is a personal thing it may not happen to you. I think this blend is worth trying.

This was the first tobacco that i ever bought, and after having trying many various blends I have to say that this is my favorite thus far. It is a good English mixture with a great taste with bit of spiciness to it, but not unpleasant in any way. It has a good amount of latakia in it, not overwhelming but it is more pronounced than most english blends that i have smoked. It has a fair amount of nicotine not enough to make your head spin, but more than enough to take the edge off.

Overall this is a great blend for the english lovers it may cost a little more(cost me $1 more than SG tins) but it's worth it.
