This popular blend is a rich, complex smoking mixture--perfect for those who prefer their pipe tobacco full, naturally sweet, with spicy highlights. Among those who loved this mixture were James Arness, Buddy Ebsen, Normal Fell, Bernard Fox, Cy Howard, and Leonard Kaufman.

I disagree with the description that this is a full blend. It's medium. It's pretty decent for what it is though. The Oriental/Turkish spice is the star flavor with Cyprian latakia playing a back up role with smokey, woody, sweet notes. The Virginia is naturally sweet with a little grass and earth taste. Burns perfectly even, cool, and leaves no dottle. The creamy texture of taste reminds me of a milder, little spicier version of MacBaren's HH Vintage Syrian with less latakia and lack of body and depth. If this fits your flavor profile for English mixtures, it may satisfy you if blends like Smoker's Haven Exotique are too strong for you. It's a two and half star product for me, but I rate it at two because of its shortcomings, though I did enjoy the spice.

Sweet, spicy, med-full. Well rounded smoke. Burns to a white ash. Highly recommended! Purchased from Kramer's Tobacco Shop. Marsha is a dream to work with. Enjoy!
