As opposed to an actual English breakfast, “English Breakfast“ is a rather light tobacco. Bright and Red Virginias Bright form its basis, along with oriental tobaccos. 20 percent Syrian Latakia give this blend its character without dominating it. The sweetness of the oriental tobaccos and the Virginias define the taste of “English Breakfast“. The Latakia stays in the background, giving this blend just a final touch. It is a tobacco for the early hours or for whenever you are looking for a good-natured, straightforward companion. “English Breakfast“ is also a good start into English blends.

Notes: From micro blender Hans Wiedemann who is in business for about a year now.

I am smoking English Breakfast now as I write this review. The smell of this tobacco in the tin is wholly delicious with a (almost) naturally sweet and smoking wood aroma to it. It is more like a Danish type english than an England produced english, a more toasty- and sweetness that is usually associated with Danish blends. Whatever little aromatization is used is only there to underline the natural tobacco taste. I asked Hans, the blender about the black tobacco in this blend as it seemed a bit more than 20%(Latakia is the only advertised black tobacco) and he said it also contained some Black Virginia that adds a natural sweetness to this blend. Supported by Virginia and Orientals and of course Syrian Latakia, this coarse cut blend would make a delightfull introduction to the bliss that is an Danish like english blend! The taste and aroma will develop best in a not too narrow pipe. Hans is a new force to be reckoned with and up there, if not above, the other established micro-blenders. Enjoy, Rob

This is another HU offering that I have been lucky enough to be gifted. It's the first HU lat I've tried so I was quite intrigued to find out what it tasted like.

The aroma of the tobacco itself is very mild with hints of the latakia coming through. The packing and lighting are very easy. The smoke itself is gorgeous, there's just enough latakia to keep it perky but there is a real sweetness to it too. It's like having a coffee in the morning with a sugar, there's enough kick to get started and enough sweetness to keep you going.

In summary, a very good smoke, it would probably make a very good introduction to lats. And once again, HU maintain their good reputation IMHO in making this great tobacco.
