I love Castello pipes and C&D has so many good tobaccos that this one seemed like a no-brainer; it said virginia, latakia, oriental, a good combo IMHO. But seriously, what's the deal here? Did they forget the latakia in my tin? I'm getting nothing. Just a bland, flavorless tobacco. Not bad tasting, but certainly not what I would call an "English mixture delivering a creamy finish to the discerning palate." Unfortunately, this one misses the mark big time. I'll leave it to marinate for a while and come back to it.
I put "somewhat recommended" in the hope that it will eventually taste like something I want to smoke.
Try this one at your own risk. (Side note, Sea Rock is a decent aromatic, so they're not all bad)
