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.
