|I don't know whether Old English is still in production but I do know it is not available in the USA. My tin was about 8 years old and I enjoyed every bit of this pressed Burley leaf. Stronger, yet more tame that Edgeworth Sliced in that I found no rough edges to the smoke. In fact, I was reminded greatly of Orlik's Dark Strong Kentucky. The main difference being that this one is not broken up and not quite as strong.
It was easy to rub out, burned slowly and cleanly, did not bite and certainly gave my palate a "Burley blast."
|Old English? Huh?
Excellent, smoothly accented Kentucky, which might evoke the idea of Oriental-Latakia ["Old English", you know?] depth in some minds, though not mine.
Completely un-English, in other words, but fine for Americans who care for the stouter Burley.
