|Another solid blend!
Appearance and Tin Aroma: Typical English blend with a mixture of dark, golden, and brown leaf. Smells like a good ol' musty English blend should.
Packing and Lighting: moisture is perfect out of tin, medium width ribbons don't give a fuss. 2-3 lights max.
Initial Flavor: Delicious, well balanced English from the get go.
Mid-Bowl: unobtrusive, all-day smoke. All the leaves are in perfect balance. No tongue-bite.
Bottom of Bowl: A nice, gentle build up of strength and all you are left with is grey mottled ash.
Overall: This is blended by Kolhase & Kopp, the same blenders for Rattray's, Brebbia, and others. It has quality ingredients and is in the same genre as "London Mixture", "Black Mallory", etc... This is a solid high quality blend that I would smoke more often if it was cheaper in cost. At $12.00 US a tin, it is more expensive than some stellar English blends by others. But if the price does not bother you, here you have a solid, delicious English blend.
