McCranie's - My Reserve II
The true achievement of the blender's skill is evident in this mixture. Red and stoved Virginias with a hint of Latakia create depth of flavor that will tantalize the palate. This is one English blend that will draw rave reviews.

Bulk: This is My Reserve with a tad bit of black, smoky Latakia quite discernible in the background.
Taste & Aroma: Comparing to MR: Considerably less VA signature, the smoky Latakia masking it; the Latakia fairly discernible. With less VA tang, the smoke could be said to be a little creamy. Occasionally, a vanilla honey taste is experienced on the tongue.
Room Note: The most pleasant a Latakia mixture could be.
Overall: A decent, but not great, English blend. Could be an all-day smoke, maybe indoors. 3.8 stars.
