Medium None Detected Medium Pleasant to Tolerable

A medium English with no discernible topping. The dark fired burley is earthy and a little nutty, with a delightful cocoa flavor. The latakia is not in full force, though it does offer a little smokey, woodsy depth. The Virginia acts as a slightly citrusy, grassy base for the other components. The perique is a minor player, being slightly plumy with a hint of pepper. The interesting part of the mixture is that some of the flavors are occasionally subtle, and not present in every single puff, with the exception of the dark fired burley. Subtle or obvious, the variety of components burn cool and dry to provide an all day American English smoking blend.

Mild None Detected Medium Pleasant

A pleasing mixture of blonde thru to black tobaccos. Mostly a short ribbon with the occasional larger piece that looks like broken flake. The tin aroma is dominated by a soft turpentine aroma of Latakia. There is also some sweet caramel on the nose.

I found I could pack this baccy fairly tightly without it rising out of the bowl on the first light. Once lit this is a trouble free blend.

As the smoke goes, it is a light American English with no orientals apart from the Latakia. Interestingly, there is a fair presence of Perique in this blend, and the relationship between Lat and the Perique is in my view what defines Old San Francisco. Unsurprisingly, Latakia is the foremost note from the start. It is supported by some gentle, sweet, Va which also contributes some lemon zest from time to time. As the bowl progresses the Lat is overtaken by the Perique with its plum and pepper presence building steadily. The DFK is at best a background presence imo.

A very well balanced tobacco with a pleasing transition as the bowl progresses, it is interesting without being complex or heavy. Quiet without being studious. Very nice with a sweet dark coffee, in the garden, listening to the birds.

Old San Francisco by Sutliff Tobacco Company

Virginian, Perique, Dark Fired Burley and Latakia Tobaccos

Tin Notes: A mixture of different cuts and colors of tobaccos. The Aroma is Rich and Full. Good moisture content right out of a newly opened tin

The Burn: An easy to manage tobacco blend that requires little to no preparations before loading into the pipe and burns evenly from start to finish. Wonderful natural tobacco flavors with a medium bodied smoke. Slightly earthy flavors with a touch of grassy notes from the virginians... A well rounded tobacco blend that tastes great !

This is a type of tobacco that smokes good and tastes great from a newly opened tin which in my opinion is how tobacco should be. I Expect that this tobacco blend would age nicely and would make a great addition to anyone's cellar

My 5 Star Rating = 4 out of 5

recommended for those who like a light to medium english style tobacco blend
