A light blend of Middle and Old Belt Virginias with both Perique from South Louisiana and a selection of rich Oriental type tobaccos. Distinctively aromatic, the mixture is lightly laced with genuine Jamaica rum to evoke and sustain it's pleasing piquancy. Available at Harrod's only.

Harrod's Cabinet blend was their "Aromatic" offering with the inclusion of Rum as a misted topping over the Orientals, Virginia and Perique. My tin was very old (these blends with the Harrod's name ceased production in the 1980s), and the Virginia presence was super smooth but somewhat muted by the added flavoring. The peppery Perique maintained a presence and the Orientals formed the front line of this blend. I thought it was okay, but the blend, IMO, would have been better without the rum.

This is the best, in my opinion, of the three Harrod blends. The rum flavoring is very noticeable and tasty. The perique is moderate and the orientals come to the fore. The nicotine content is not overpowering,but noticeable. The ribbon cut provides for a cool smoke. I smoked this blend a long time ago and don't recognize the blend as it is today. It is supposedly blended by James Fox for Harrod's and exclusive to them, although McAhey also lists the Harrod blends for sale on his website. The tin says that it's made in England. The tin is red, which may be of importance, as the name is covered by an anti-smoking warning sticker. The other two Harrod blends are green and purple. I will definitely order more of this. It will not replace any of my other favorites but will make a nice addition. I think this blend will stand the test of time, but I'll update in the future.

Update: March 31/06

I added 8% cigar leaf and 2% more perique. Excellent
