Mild to Medium Extremely Mild Medium Tolerable

It's got a smoky, woody sweet Cyprian latakia flavor, and grass and sweetness from the Virginia, which work well together. I believe there's a little cavendish in here, too. Won't bite or get harsh. Burns reasonably well with a very consistent taste, has a little nic-hit, and leaves little moisture in the bowl. requires few relights. If you're into heavy Balkan blends, you may find this a lighter change of pace. A decent starter for the newbie.

This, to me, is a very middle of the road smoke -- not bad, but i tend to forget I'm smoking it: nothing wrong per se, but nothing that makes me notice it either. I'm partial to more Latakia in an English, but it'd make a good bridge smoke for a new smoker or someone switching to English blends. It's readily available to me, so I might buy it again in a pinch.

Mild None Detected Mild to Medium Pleasant

When the pouch arrived, the smell was great: deep, spicy, old fashioned. Sorely, the taste proved to be a little flat, nothing to share with those full flavoured English mixtures I happen to favour. It burns well, cool and dry, but it delivers a so subtle taste you really have to stay focused to detect it, while the main course is an indistinct toasted-nutty flavour: nothing bad with that, especially if you like delicate and mild blends, but I'm looking for a bigger impact type of tobacco; nevertheless it could be a fine starting point for those of us who want to explore the world of latakia-oriented mixtures. Not a winner though not a loser.

Medium Very Mild Mild to Medium Tolerable

An excellent choce for a "budget" English. I actually preferred this to P.S.'s "Proper English" which is also a decent blend. No it is not comparable to G.L. Pease or Esotericas' blends but at about half the cost and more readily available than the premium tobacs, this one is a winner. A good blend to try an English style without some of the higher potency issues that large quantities of Latakia or Perique raise. (10/22/2004)

Update: About two and one-half stars.
