I have an occasional liking for shag tobacco. This one is dry in the pack, but burns evenly and a little faster than I'd prefer, but it does not smoke hot. It smokes better with a little hydration. I found it a little milder than I like for an English blend with very little complexity, but I enjoyed smoking it. There's not much Oriental here, but you will notice its woodiness. It could use just a touch more latakia, which is mildly smoky. The Virginia is grassy and a little sweet. If you like a mild English for an all day smoke, this might do it for you. It's mostly for people who either want to try English for the first time to gauge their interest, or for those who just want a light, light, light smoke. In America, it's cheaper to buy John Bull, which is what I'd recommend in order save some money. For light English smokers, it's a two and half star blend.

A battle tobacco,good for stingy puffers( I think italian Genoan pipe smokers are interested,lol).Average quality virginia,with a few latakia.Orientals? If your dealer is from Turkey or Pakistan,there is one Oriental.The price and availability is the strenght point.6 Euros for an english-speaking taste is a good price.The cut is less more than a shag but not very dangerous for the pipe.Of course,there are some better tobaccos for the morning,but nothing with the same price of a cigarette packet.Hi !
