A proper English with a bit of “what is that” for that something extra. This is smooth and flavorful without the tongue twitch that some Englishes give. That's not to say it isn’t bold--it is a good solid English. I've taken that rich tradition a step further and added just a little something to keep things interesting. It works. Not only will it please your English cravings but you can smoke it all day and not get overloaded with Latakia or Perique because of a smooth undertone of ?? I can’t tell you because MI5 would come knocking.

The tin note is surprisingly delicate with dark earth undertones and notes of clove, smoke, and sassafras. With a name like Beowulf I expected a degree of harshness but there's nothing but smooth, smooth, smooth in this remarkable blend. Smoked in a vintage Italian briar, the toasting light is bright and light with a flavor of root beer (but not too sweet). The true light reveals more of the remarkable sassafras and a beautiful rich tobacco flavor without a hint of harshness. Wow, this really tastes good. About halfway through the bowl the flavor becomes richer with the sweet spicy clove, ripe plums, dark chocolate, and a hint of honey coming to the front. The room note is a pleasant with hints of wood smoke, chocolate, and clove.

Whether new to pipes or an old hand, you owe it to yourself to give Beowulf a try.
