Kasimir denotes status as several Polish kings and prominent military leaders have borne the name. This extraordinary English mixture of smoky Latakia, rich Orientals, Golden Virginias, and burley could not be more aptly named.

An English mixture with a slight aromatic feel. The variety of burleys provide a semi-sweet, earthy nuttiness. The Virginias are slightly sweet, slightly hay tasting. The latakia is a little sweet, smokey and woodsy. The Orientals are mildly spicy. I detect a little anise and a lightly sweet rum topping which mutes the latakia just a mite, though not enough to distract the smoker. The variety of flavors work well together, creating a well balanced mixture for the experienced English aficionado. Aromatic smokers looking for an entry level English with some strength and richness will find this a good place to start. Burns well with no dottle or dull spots.

This is a fine blend by Sutliff. Great cuts of tobacco with nice sized leaf presence. The myriad of flavors unite perfectly to create a nice, well balanced, smooth smoke that allows you to seek out all of its nuances and truly experience a great blend and all its offerings. The Latakia has its place and the Burleys provide balance with the Orientals. Added to it is a sweet subtle note to each which doesn't distract from the tobacco offerings. The flavor tone provides additional interests and is ever present as you seek each piece to this fine orchestra. My favorite Sutliff blend yet. This is a bridge offering. Its not squadron leader, night cap genre, yet it is not overly aro in nature. It captures a great place in bewtween and it fills that gap extremely well. A great smoke for anyone to enjoy, whether new or old to the piping community.

This is the aromatic English I was looking for when I tried SG Perfection. The boys at Samuel Gawith could learn something about aromatic English blends from the men at Sutliff.

It's a very pleasant mild to medium English mixture. The leaves are of high quality and the topping accents the orientals VERY well. This tobacco does what Perfection couldn't do, maintain the flavor throughout the bowl. If anything it gets a little bit stronger and thicker towards the bottom and finishes on a very nice note. The topping on this really help eliminate any sharp or ashy flavors from the orientals and produces a wonderful experience. There really is a nice interplay between smoky, sweet and slighly spicy flavor profiles going on.

I don't get any tongue bite with this blend but rather just enjoyable puffing. Easily an all day smoke and I HIGHLY recommend this to anyone looking to see what an English tastes like. I will be purchasing more of this.

The tin note is sweet, rum and anisette are really pushing the boundaries of what I smelled and tasted, however. "Lightly-spiced marshmallow" is more descriptive, to my tastes. As the smell is sweet, the flavor mirrors this, being fairly sweet, and fortunately not overly-so. There is a touch of latakia, and it tastes more like the rough-around-the-edges Cyprian type than the Syrian, although I have had Sutliff's cyprian taste closer to syrian before. It is just a touch though, maybe 20%, I feel that it's somewhere around there. The sweetness is not off-putting nor are the flavorings, and I think it actually does well to compliment this smorgasbord of tobacco's in the blend. I'd recommend it to the aromatic smoker wanting to try something a little heartier.

I received a free tin at the Chicago pipe show last year and truly forgot about it! The room note is a pleasant surprise given those around me aren't complaining! For a latakia blend it has a great balance of the tobaccos and while having that great latakia smokiness it doesn't overpower. To me all the tobaccos work together perfectly and while detecting a light casing which I believe lends to the room note, that too doesn't try to turn this into an aromatic.

At first I didn't take to this blend.But after jarring it for a few months it really shines.Very mild English with nice Latakia,Virginia and Burely as me it is an indoor Latakia.It has a wonderful sweet aroma from the tin and after aging a real nice taste.Room note is.. well an English so good to some bad to others. What struck me most was at least to me how much this blend kinda reminded me of Blue mountain.I will have to A/B this to be sure but at this point it is an interesting cost saver if my thoughts are on point. In the end it is better then you think it will be.
