Replacement pipe tobacco for the older English Mixture No. 80, with a very fine and superb fragrance. It is a choice of the best small leaves of Syrian Latakia, mahogany colored spicy Burleys and Bright Virginias.

Notes: Replaced Classic English (Mixture No.80).

This is a short ribbon (chop cut?) of mostly mid browns with scatterings of light and dark leaf. The tin note is complex. Underneath the obvious Latakia are sweet and spicy aromas.

Takes a few lights to get going but once underway is a trouble free baccy.

This is a sweet and savoury smoke, possibly a little too sweet for my tastes, that has enough mid range wood and leather aromas to provide interest.

There is a suggestion in the reviews of this blend's previous incarnations that there is a sweet topping to this. I honestly don't know whether it is natural or not, but it is certainly a sweet blend. It has a very nice room note and gave no bite or wetness but did burn on the hot side, indicating that the Virginia component here is substantial. YMMV.

This tobacco comes out as a substitute of the former No.8 Brebbia Tobacco ( which was just sold in pouches and at a cheaper price) , Like his "ancestor" is a fine English Mixture with Burleys added . It's a honest tobacco. It isn't perfect but a bowlful after work it's a contribute to peace of mind and a prelude to cooling off. The latakia ( I wonder where they can find SYRIAN Latakia - as stated on the tin box- nowadays) is nonetherless sophisticated. A fine mixture at a medium price , more expensive than the former pouched edition but still less than many other brands presumably made by the same blender. ( Even if Brebbia is an Italian company, I guess the blend must be either Dutch or German).
