This clean, crisp cool smoke with just a hint of natural sweetness was a favorite tobacco choice of Leonard Nimoy, Tony Curtis, Charles Bronson, and Richard Sherman.

Mild to Medium Extremely Mild Mild to Medium Pleasant

A mildly sweet English blend for the smoker who wants a mild to medium smoke. The spice from the Oriental/Turkish is mild as is the latakia, which adds a little smokey, woodsy quality. Most of the sweetness comes from the cavendish, thought I suspect am extremely mild topping is present. I've tasted several products very similar to this, so I can't say there's anything outstanding here. It won't satisfy those looking for a heavier, more filling English, though it's a good starter mixture for those thinking about trying blends with latakia. Even though I rate it at two stars for my personal taste, I'd rate it a three as an entry level English.

This fits into the "Light English" category quite well. It is reminiscent of any number of American-style English blends by Cornell & Diehl; even though this blend lacks a strong burley presence, the Virginias in this blend are kind of earthy (which reminds me of some of those C&D mixtures.

Anyway, I found this to be real easy to smoke and pleasant. I got a sample at one of the Pipe Shows, then jarred it for about a year. I will be ordering more, and exploring more Kramer tobaccos.

Govern Yourself Accordingly.

Kramer's English blend is comprised of rough cut ribbon that shows very little dark flake. Considering that there is both Cavendish and Latakia in the blend, it is simply to light for me as an English even though I am not looking for a Latakia bomb either. The tobacco is of good quality and only slight too moist, so it only takes a few short minutes to dry. This blend is for those that like the very lightest of English mixtures.

Milder than Kramer's flagship blend Father Dempsey, English Blend is a nice, smooth mixture that could be considered an all-day smoke. It's similar to 965 in being an English blend that contains a creamy texture and a bit of natural sweetness (possibly from the same cavendish used in Father Dempsey).

The only problem I have with English blend (aside from its uninspired name) is that it bites if not smoked slowly. I think this would be alleviated by some drying as the tobacco arrives somewhat moist (not moist like an aromatic, but moist like a freshly opened tin). When you get in the zone, however, you're rewarded with a great tasting tobacco.
