Predominately Virginia leaf from Brazil, Zimbabwe, and Malawi (86%) but with the addition of sun-cured Malawi (10%) to add sweetness, strength and to cool the smoke and Malawi Burley (4%) to add body and to "carry the flavor" in addition to its cooling and strength qualities.

A background flavor of almond is enhanced with the addition of fruit, vanilla, and the special 'Lakeland style' flavors to give this tobacco its distinctive aroma and taste.

The only differences between this and the flake version is that this burns at a more reasonable pace, and is very slightly less sweet. Otherwise, i can’t tell a difference, therefore I’m repeating this review here with a couple of changes. The Virginias are floral, earthy, dark fruit and citrus sweet with a little grass, and are the dominant tobaccos. The burleys are very nutty, earthy sweet in a continual support role. The almond enhancement mildly adds some complexity to the deep fruity tropical topping. The vanilla gently reminds you it’s there, while the rum gently underscores the other aspects of the tobacco. The Lakeland essence is very obvious without drowning out the other toppings, though all the flavor additions sublimate the tobaccos to some extent. There are stronger Lakeland blends than this, and it may be that the other sweet additions temper it just a little. I don’t know if this is what I’d pick for an entry level Lakeland smoker, but there are lighter ones to start with, though the sweet level may be the very thing to hook a Lakeland newbie. It will ghost a pipe and a meer, too. Has a slightly more than mild nic-hit. The strength and taste is medium. The flavorings and tobaccos meld well to create a cool, clean, creamy consistent taste from start to finish. No harsh or weak spots. Burns at a moderate pace if given a slight dry time. Leaves very little moisture in the bowl. Needs some relights.The lingering sweet after taste is very pleasant as is the room note. Not an all day smoke.

Ennerdale has a lot of strength thanks to the addition of 10% Malawi leaf. I love its sweetness and strength in this blend. Ennerdale, typical of a lot of G&H tobaccos, has some natural flavoring added that doesn't necessarily sweeten up the blend much, but really presents a unique presentation to each puff. Good stuff but not for the faint of heart.

For me this is the bench mark which I will measure Lakeland from here on in.

This is exactly the same as ennerdale flake but in ready rubbed form.

perfect moisture content from the pouch, this can be rubbed out a little more if desired, but I left mine as is from the pouch and as soon as you open the pouch, this will be the time that you will decide if you like or dislike Lakeland blends.

Although described as almond flavoured, i find this is more a back ground note, up front is a floral, fruity and quite an alcoholic note and a very noticeable "soapy" note.

packing is easy enough as is the lighting and the flavours really do take hold, this is a very full flavoured mixture where the aromas from the pouch transfer exactly to the smoking. the tobacco taste does come through from time to time, a nice sharp Virginia note here and there and a woody note from the burley, but make no mistake the added flavours come out on top. if you are not of fan Lakeland style blends stay well away from this, but if you do like them or looking for a good starting point you cannot go wrong with this, although full flavoured it will give you an idea of how the style is and what it's about.

beware this will ghost a briar so if you are new to lakelands try it in a cob first.

room note is quite distinct so it may raise a few eyebrows but it's nothing to drastic.

All in all a great blend and one I enjoy

Gawith Hoggarth - Ennerdale Mixture.

Personally I'd describe this as a broken flake, in the pouch there are a good few larger pieces of flake. There is a slightly fruity/floral aroma coming from the mix, not at all aromatic smelling but it does seem to have had a slight addition to it.

The moistness is good so mine is easy to light up. The smoke I find enjoyable, the slightly aromatic presence I was expecting has all but disappeared. There is a VERY delicate fruity note there but I don't feel clobbered by false flavour. The two tobaccos are impeccably weighted. There is the wonderful Virginia which isn't too much as to cancel out the Burley. The nicotine is easy to notice, not strong but by no means weak.

I had no expectations for this but am glad I bought some, highly recommended.

A strong Virginia and burly blend with a floral perfume topping. It’s kind of like a block mason wearing a muumuu. I think I like it (the tobacco, not the guy in the muumuu, not that there’s anything wrong with that).

After 10 years of pipe smoking, I finally decided to try a blend with a Lakeland topping. I was always scared off by the “old lady” aroma descriptions, but you have to try new things once in awhile (again, I’m talking about the tobacco, not the guy...).

The tobaccos are very rich, and the topping lightens up what would otherwise be a heavy blend. There is plenty of nicotine, but I can easily finish a bowl without the hiccups (niccups?). This would never be a daily smoke for me, but it’s a welcome change of pace.

This tflake tobacco is a different experience.when you crack the tin a really strong almond flavour comes out.after rubbing it out you should leave this to dry out a bit.it lights nice burns good without burning the pipe as most aromatics.it has nutty flavour but the topping dominates everything.my advise is to go slow relax and enjoy.it is a mdium nicotine with very strong aroma so if you are not in strong aroma blends don't buy it.leaves proper moist at the end of the bowl .not a blend to start your day.better smoke it late at the afternoon it might get you dizzy at the morning hours.

Age When Smoked: Rubed and leave it to dry out a couple hours

I like Ennerdale mixture, it's not too strong, full of flavour and a good alternative to my favourite, strong, tobaccos. I could easily smoke this all day long and when I have I can still taste it the following day, (even after brushing my teeth twice).
The room note is very pleasant and if I was allowed to smoke in the house I think it could well become my number 1 smoke, mainly because my wife 'quite likes' the smell compared to some of my other favourites.

I bought this one to see how it would compare to the full flake. I wasn't surprised when the wafts of cherry came flooding out of the packet, even if it was less sweet than the flake. The packing and lighting are equally as easy. The smoke is a little different, maintaining the cherry flavour for longer and providing a bit more kick from the Vitamin N. On the whole then, just as big a pleasure to smoke as the flake but different enough to keep both in my rotation. Whether or not the flake would taste the same if rubbed out and left in a jar for a week I don't know, but worth a try? Maybe.
