For the pipe man who likes more flavour . Heavily accented with Latakia and Brown Virginia leaf the blend is rounded off by the addition of a little Turkish and a good helping of Burley . On the nose the smell is fantastic , light up and the Latakia is there center stage but well supported by the rest . Robust in character and not one for the lover of aromatics .

Smoke King Britannia Mixture . I wasn't sure what to expect with this as it is not from one of the more eminent companies , but as they give such great internet service I thought I'd give it a go . When I first opened it I was greeted by a splendid looking mix , where the pieces range in colour from light golden right up to jet black , what a visual pleasure ! Now thinking more logically , what I notice is the perfect moisture level , which fills me with assurance that this will ignite perfectly , and it does . Once lit I realise that just because this is not from a known dealer it should not be ignored as it's awesome ! The Virginia acts as this blends backbone and base , as it can be easily identified but does not outshine the other flavours . The Burley is probably the least noticeable ingredient , but is still there to acknowledge if you try to identify it , with the smokey Latakia taking the limelight with pure brilliance . Even if I suck like crazy tongue bite still remains very elusive with a nicotine level that is brilliant , where it is hard to not inhale it as it is sheer perfection and the smoke slides down with ease ! This is a blend I could smoke all day long and still want more ! To be succinct , if you live in the U.K and can get it then it is a must that you try it ... perfection !

This is a wonderful smoke. Chock full of flavor. The Latakia is "in your face", but somehow allows the other components to have their say. It's very smoky with a little wood and spice. The Virginias are mildly sweet with a hint of fruit. I have to differ with StevieB on one point and it's probably because I've used only cobs with this blend. I get a nice taste of sweet, nutty Burley and I find the Orientals to be the least noticeable component. I can barely detect those in a note of spice. For me, it's the Burley that makes this shine. I'll eventually get around to smoking this in a briar, but it taste so good in a cob that I can't bring myself to do it yet. This is lovely stuff.

Medium in body. Medium to full in taste. No added flavorings.
