|I don't entirely disagree with the two previous reviews of this blend, but I will give it a recommended rating, with an explanation.
At first, perhaps because I had the reviewer's opinions in mind, I, too, found Tudor a bit flat. But over the course of a few days, smoking it in the morning with pipes reserved for Virginia tobacco, subtle variations of the Virginia/Perique experience made themselves known. Sometimes slightly sweet, sometimes slightly savoury, each bowl became quietly interesting. For my taste, it is something I would only smoke indoors during those times when I can give the smoke my attention. This blend won't become a mainstay in my rotation, but I will pick up a few more tins to see how the flavour develops with a few years of age
