Reminiscent of Middleton's Walnut, which is no longer available. A good tobacco for someone looking for a mild American/English. Probably has the least amount of Latakia of all of the Boswell non-aromatics. A good introduction to non-aromatics.

I believe there is a Boswell English that will suit just about any piper. Each one seems to be built on the same base of Virginia and Latakia, but they differ slightly depending the additions of Burley, Orientals, Perique and Cavendish.. It seems the majority of them share the same casing of a subtly sweet vanilla type flavor.

The pouch aroma of Titus is that of sweet, slightly earthy and bready. Just a tiny hint of mustiness from the perique if you are looking for it. A superbly even cut variety of leaf, almost no stems or shake. Pre-lit draw tastes of slight bourbon vanilla.

Lighting does have a bit of spring to it, so I make sure to leave a bit of head space for expansion. I'm not quite sure if the sweetness is coming from a topping, or the Cavendish Virginia. Either way, its pleasant on the palate and room note. The perique is noticeable when exhaled through the nose, but offers a slight fragrant spice to this blend. Requires a few relights, as it seems to contain a bit more moisture than other Boswell English blends. As most English that contain Perique, it does come more to the front the further down the bowl you get. Due to the moisture content, this also burns a bit wet when smoked fresh.

All in all this blend is balanced, flavorful and easy going. Will not bite, even if provoked. If you are a fan of Boswell, order their English sampler and decide for yourself which suits you best!

This “Gentle Giant” has a nice creamy texture and distinctive taste that is sort of like slightly burnt caramel popcorn. From the Perique I picked up undertones of dried dates and dried plum (not quite prune), could have used a little more of that to be honest. Could have used a little more nuttiness from the Burleys as well (I suspect this is probably the same soft n’ sweet Burley used for Boswell’s Premium Burley). And don’t expect much Latakia here; I found it purely condimental. It’s the caramel popcorn taste that sells me – a rather unique flavor profile in my experience.

Hasn’t really become a mainstay in my rotation but it is a pleasant smoke that I have enjoyed from time to time. More of a 2.5 star for me and I can understand Jim Inks docking it for lack of depth, but I’m rounding up to three stars.
