An exceptionally high quality English blend of the mildest Scandinavian tobaccos plus light and black Cavendish and long cut Latakia in just the right balance. A full-bodied, yet mild, taste treat for the serious pipe smoker.
Notes: This was an Amar Blends Co. mixture. Cornell and Diehl bought the rights of all their old recipes.

I have tried about 20 or more C&D/GLP tobaccos in the last 12 months, all with 4 stars from this site. I have been overwhelmed and underwhelmed, tonguefried and rendered comatose,all in search of "the ONE" I dont know if Scanlish is "the ONE" but it is 4 stars from me over all that I have tried. It is simply delightful. It has an ethereal quality that is hard to describe and is unlike any I've smoked, and you have to concentrate a little to appreciate it. I guess it's a bit like GLP Samarra but toned way back(that's good IMO) I do like Samarra and Black Frigate although they come into the 'overwhelming ' category for me. I would love to love Super Balkan but I seem to have tongue issues with it.
