|I'm quite the Latakia/English/Balkan nut and tend to shy away from the aromatics.
This was a Christmas gift which my sis-in-law picked up for me; very sweet. Upon opening the wonderfully wrapped box it thought this would not be my cup of tea. Needless to say, I was wrong.
Very gentle, mellow, and not over-the-top with the casing. It burns clean and not too soppy. Not overly complex, but a few interesting things going-on. I did like the consistency of the burn. Often I've found with a number of aromatics the last third of the bowl the flavour goes wonky, not this one. Mind you a slow steady pace is key and a quality briar of course.
Examining the bowl post-combustion the briar was not too wet and not a gurgle all the way through.
Very mild in the nicotine department, but I could careless about that. Others may seek out a room spinning blast; not here.
I'll keep some around for a pleasant break from my usual Latakia infusions and to share with a few pipe-mates who prefer this fare.
This is Lane BCA and very nice.
