James Fox - Celtic Mixture.

The first thought to come to mind when I took a whiff of the unlit blend was "dust". Quite a strange sort of smell, one where it's tricky to actually identify anything other than a sort of dusty smell. This is pretty much the same situation with the taste; it lacks any of the sort after characters from the included tobacco's. From the description I was expecting a rich and flavoursome smoke but disappointingly all I got was the same dusty taste I got from the aroma with a sort of perfumey taste that lingers on the palate. This perfume taste actually seems stronger on the tongue and won't go away afterwards; not exactly what I want from a blend!

The nicotine's quite mild in this, it's not 'weak' but it is still a lot less than medium.

The burn's good but that's no redemption for the taste! I don't enjoy this blend at all. It's flat, empty, a bit bitey, too hot and not my bag.

Not recommended.

I'm a relatively new pipe smoker and haven't smoked many blends. I have to strongly disagree with the reviewer who said this smells and tastes like dust, far from it in fact. The tin aroma is sweet toffee and the citrus from the virginia. As a new smoker I wouldn't be great at describing flavours but Celtic mix is very nice, it tastes of vanilla and not in a sickly way. It is very similar to MacBaren vanilla. I like this smoke, it doesn't bite and burns well with normal amount of relights. The only thing bad is its price at €28.50 as is all Fox's blends and I think it's mainly available from fox's website and have seen it on 4noggins. If you like aromatics this is a good one that won't disappoint, grab a tin and enjoy
