|I was given a tin of this as a gift, and was slightly worried as I couldn’t work out who made it, and couldn’t find any info on the net about it.
In the tin I smelt an strong latika smell. Another minus for me as I haven’t found any pleasure in the taste of English blends/Latika.
I decided to try it anyway, and was most surprised. It is (to me) a perfect marriage of aromatic and English. Neither is overwhelming. It smoked cool and slow, with no trace of bite and a strong, satisfying taste.
The upshot for me is that I have since decided to reopen a tin of squadron leader (which I bought based on the reviews on this site, and am now enjoying it thoroughly.
Fisherman’s love has proved a gentle and rewarding first step away from aromatic blends, and I can really recommend it. In fact, I have not tried a Planta blend that I haven’t really liked. The plus for me is also that Planta is easy to find here in Malaysia (for some reason) and cheap. God quality tins with a tight seal keep the flavour intact as well.
From the lack of reviews, this is clearly an unknown blend (or a disliked one!) but I have to say I loved it.
