My son brought this back from Harrod's in London. My initial response was very positive, but subsequent bowls showed this blend to be too full for my taste. I also found that it burned a little hot. The tobaccos used are of excellent quality and the Latakia and Perique remained in the background as the lovely Havana leaf took center stage. I guess cigar blends, no matter how excellent, are not to my liking, as I can't see myself smoking more then one tin of this mixture. If you like blends of this type, I would highly recommend you try this.
Update: I decided to add some McCranie's Red Ribbon to this blend. I added 35% Red Ribbon to the London Mixture and found it to be perfect in strength and taste.
