|This is one mix that I have a hard time cathegorising and it really makes me wonder what they were thinking about when they felt the need to blend it.
If you see it as an English mix you are in for a real letdown... It tastes somewhat similar to an English mixture, but with no other real connection. It's ungodly sweet, it's one-dimensional, it has got nothing in there tastewise to arouse any attention and so on.
I began my experience in Englishes with Boswells Northwoods and for my tastes Northwoods is as mild as you ever would a faux- english to be, Mild English is just too bland and boring.
Just smoked a bowl outside and it _actually_ made me mad puffing away to hunt down something that reminds me of an English mixture, just to realize that there's almost nothing like that in Mild English.
Mild English is NOT an English mixture, it's a weak aromatic with nothing really going for it. If you're going to smoke aromatics, there are a lot better offerings... ...Boswells themselves does wonderful mixes, ALL better than this.
If you are looking for an introduction to Englishes you should seek out the "real deal" instead. There's a whole lot of quality Englishes that are mild enough to start out with. Skiff, Squadron Leader, Penzance, Chelsea Morning, Cornell and Diehl englishes, Presbyterian mixture, Boswells Northwoods and a whole heap of other brands that are not shallow as Mild English but still are mild blends.
I am sorry to the Boswells, this blend just does not cut it. An English must have depth and points of interest to keep me reaching for it. Mild English just has no points of interest and just gives me an overly sweet "absolutely nothing" with a faint hint of an English mixture. I cannot recommend this to anyone at the moment, and as I said... If you want to try Englishes but is afraid that they'll make you drop dead, DON'T BE! Mild English is just a small side-track that leads nowhere and when you are finally back on the main track again you'll never look back on that "bad shortcut" (that proved to be longer, more troublesome and not as tasty :) again.
