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

An excellent light to medium English. My admiration for this blend has grown over the months and I do believe a bit of age has been beneficial. Smooth, flavorful with a compelling spicy note, "Crown" is an excellent all-day choice that makes for a particularly good morning smoke. Truly a relaxing, easy-going English that rewards the smoker with a well balanced, flavorful and undemanding smoking experience.

Pipe Used: Rattray's Craggy Root Lovat

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.
