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.

Mild Very Mild Mild to Medium Pleasant

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.

I've been trying this on/off for several months. As of now, "the jury's still out". IMHO, Not a true English & too smoky for a VA. I hope it grows on me, as I've been satisfied shopping with McCranie's for many years. But, my pressing search, for now is a milder British. I've smoked Commonwealth & British Woods for years........ But, as I'm reaching seven decades, I'm needing something tamer. I'm not sure if this is it. Though, it is not offensive, nor does it seem to bite.
