I have used this as my first venture into English style tobacco. This is a great way to start and makes me want to explore other non-aromatic tobaccos. The other great thing about this tobacco is getting it from Leavitt and Peirce, this is quite a place and I will be going back!

A mild and smooth English/latakia blend. The latakia is sprinkled in nicely: not overdone yet always present. The virginias taste good, and the cavendish lends a smooth, sweet bottom to the flavor. No tongue bite.

A good smoke for someone new to English blends. The blend doesn't distinguish itself from all the good, let alone great, english blends out there, but it is still a solid and enjoyable smoke. Basically, I would be happy to smoke through another bag but I'm not motivated to go and actually buy one.

From a "must see/visit" venerable, old tobacco shop in Harvard Square, if you are in the area of course!

This blend should really be called "Balkan Light" as it really is a light to medium/light English blend. The blend is well put together and not a bad smoke. It packs well, the moisture level is fine and it burns cleanly. The problem is that it doesn't stand out in a world currently filled with great bulk English blends. Although not at the level of Peretti's, L&P is an interesting shop with a very long history and sits just across the street from Harvard. If you are a pipe smoker on a visit to the Boston area, it's well worth the visit to buy a couple of ounces of this blend and take in the sites. It's just not interesting enough to cellar.
