A mild English blend composed of red Virginia, Turkish ribbon and Latakia, sweetened by the addition of toasted Cavendish and a scented Virginia flake.

There are not many old time pipe shops left in America and Park Lane is one of the few remaining. Included in their lengthy list of house blends is #3. A medium style English blend with a deep pouch scent, but while I can see the few scented Virginia Flake pieces in the blend, it by no means gives the tobacco a floral or soapy taste. There is a nice smell of Orientals along with the Latakia in the pouch. I believe that there is a fair amount of McClelland blending tobaccos that comprise this well done, medium English. There is a fair amount of complexity in the blend and it burns very cooley. It does arrive a bit moist for my taste so some dry time is needed. Fans of McClelland style English blends with a "twist" and fans of English blends on the mild side will really enjoy Park-Lane #3. Recommended.
