Park-Lane Tobacconist - Knightsbridge
A zesty mix of Bright, Red and Lemon Virginia tobaccos, blended with the Turkish tobacco Smyrna, which lends it's noticeable taste and irresistible aroma. A generous addition of Cyprian Latakia adds it's smoky top note, and a small measure of Perique is added to round out the blend and add to it's spicy finish. A full bodied but not overpowering English mixture.

P-L Knightsbridge is an English blend in the Virginia-Turkish-Latakia-Orientals sub-category. This is just me, but I find this one very similar to Penzance. It is creamy, smoke-intensive, smooth, and astonishingly flavorful, with the lat and the orientals taking the front seat here. It's easy to fill (more so than the Penzance flake), and easy to smoke – right down to the ash. Anyone who likes Penzance, particularly if looking for a replacement nowadays, should give this one a try.
