A pleasurable mixture of U.S. Virginia, mild Cyprian Latakia and aromatic sun-cured Brazilian grades.
An English blend at heart with an aromatic touch to satisfy today's pipe smoker.

This is a great smoke! It appeals to the aromatic and mild English smoker alike.
No Bite. Quality tobaccos. Drier than most of Blatter's bulk blends. Packs nice, lights easily and burns completely to grey ash. The pouch aroma gives me images of jasmine and jade. The room notes are equally Asian....almost incense-like. The taste is mild and mildly flavorful.
The only thing I would add to it would be a bit more Latakia simply because I like my latakia to be in the forefront. In this blend it is in the backseat and barely noticable.
It would make an all day kind of smoke and would be pleasing to the newbie as it would to the more experienced smoker looking for a break from full-bore English blends.
I highly recommend it....I just love it! And I love it even more when I add some extra latakia to it.
Give this one a try.
