A perfect addition to your cozy evening by the fire. Best enjoyed after unburdening from the day's heavy load and soggy boots. This blend embodies the safety and comfort of your snug den and is a treat while you reflect and unwind.

Perfect for the Latakia lover. Naturally sweet, ready rubbed and flue-cured Virginias blend with light Burley, Latakia, and Exquisite Turkish Tobaccos to form a complex smoke that will give the seasoned pipe smoker hours of cheer. Bag End is best enjoyed by experienced pipe smokers that are comfortable "sipping" their pipe and enjoying a single bowl for a long period of time. A complex and rewarding smoke!

Notes: Released 2013.

A quality English style blend from the Country Squire. Despite the presence of the burley, with its sweet/bright Virginias and delicate Turkish and Latakia flavors, Bag End smokes like a milder, somewhat less sophisticated version of Squadron Leader.

As for the Latakia, I think that the amount used here is done quite to balance. However, the blender's description of "Perfect for the Latakia lover" is a bit deceiving because Bag End contains just a trace of it. It does come through in nearly every puff, but only in nuance. Those expecting more Latakia flavor based on the description might be disappointed.

Overall, I would categorize Bag End as a mild to medium strength light English with a subtle burley influence. The flavor is that of natural tobacco with no additional flavorings. A pleasant & well-blended mixture.
