|Got some "Joe's Morning Pipe" form Dick at Chief Catoonah's Tobacconist and smoked it this weekend. Good stuff.
As an English blend(whatever that happens to mean currently) it is very mild. Appropriate for a morning smoke as the nam says. I cind that like the previous reviewer it is just as good throughout the day as well. The Latakia is very light and hardly noticeble,the Turkish is as well while the Burley seems to overshadow them both. The Virginia however is very nice and reminds me of other blends from Dick.All the parts of the blend see to work well together and though the Virginia stands out from the Burley they all seem to work well together.
S little heavier hand with the Latakia might be a good idea it seem but then again it might not be as friendly a "morning pipe" as it is.
The flavor is a little on the sweetish style for a true( again, whatever that means) English blend and it is not all that noticeable.
Strength is as already stated mild and pleasant. Room note is a tad over the "pleasant" line but not that much as my "very significant other"-- my dear wife evaluated it's aroma.
So there you go. Nice,sweetish "English type" blend that could serve as a pleasant all day puffcandidate.
