A pleasant English blend of Virginia, Cavendish and Oriental tobaccos. Rich and spicy flavor and slightly aromatic.

I like to start the smoking day with a nice bowl of an English-latakia blend and this mix fits the bill quite well. This is what I would call a "light latakia" English blend. The Vitamin L in the mix is more subtle than the mid-range English-latakia blends I usually seek out and prefer. Still, it is very enjoyable and the other orientals and cavendish in the mix keep the virginias from being too dominant. A very smooth smoke. I believe the touch of cavendish adds to the smoothness also. A very nice smoke that has grown on me as I worked through the bag. There are other Peretti, and other tobacconists, English-L blends I prefer but this one is worth a try. I think I will revisit it after some time. I did not detect any "aromatic" flavor.

Not really Peretti's best creation. A little boring and rather run of the mill. There are much better blends such as Tashkent .

The tobacco upon opening is a ribbon cut with darker strands being the predominent, and ocassional lighter ones. The oriental in this blend plays a condiment-role with the virginia being the main character, and the cavendish a secondary backer. As one gets going down the length of the bowl the orientals do make their presence more known to the smoker; as a background note that increases in intensity, but never quite challenges the virginia or cavendish. The blend burns clean and seldom leaves more then a slight dottle at the end. A nice experience.
