A medium English mixture designed to be an all day smoke . Starting with dark and bright Virginia's blended together , no English mixture is complete without Latakia and Turkish leaf to provide spiciness and that smokey flavour . An excellent introduction for those trying Oriental Tobaccos for the first time , proving there is more to life than aromatics .

Smoke King Avro Mixture . Having tried a few of the Smoke King blends I feel excited as they have been sure to impress me every time ! The aroma from the blend is a very full Latakia one , with the Lat' taking the forefront and the Virginia giving its hay note subtly . I can't complain of it being too damp or too dry , it is perfect in that sector ! On appearance it looks quite an even mix of the tobaccos , there seems to be an equal amount of each . I get my pipe filled and eagerly bring in the flame and right from the outset , as I found with their other blends , it proves that just because they aren't a tobacco giant they still have the right to hold their heads high ! It takes to the flame with only a short touch of it and then once lit it burns steadily , even and cool . The flavour is , like the appearance , an even split . By no means would this validate any Lat' bomb suspicions . The Latakia can be easily identified but it doesn't swamp the taste by being overly smoky , in fact the Virginia can also take some credit for enhancing the taste with its lovely grassy tone . Tongue bite now , not one occurrence from beginning to end ! The nicotine in Avro is another good point , satisfying but not too much and easily inhaled . The room-note is quite stereotypical for the ingredients , but not that heavy so the paradox is you could enjoy this around 'room note haters' ! This blend is a real pleasure , if you live in the U.K I vehemently implore you to get some ! Brilliant !
