I can't believe that there is only one review on this? I got two tins of this on sale, one to smoke and one in the cellar. It's a medium body English with no real suprises. It is also more latakia foward as the orientals dance in and out. The Virginia is there as a bit a sweet tang but I mostly get lat from this blend. It is one of Russs blends but my question has always been this. On the tin it says Scandinavian Tobacco Company, Lane limited? Is it just a relabeled English blend that STG puts out or Russs recipe? No offense intended Russ, you're a master blender! Oh well, so much for the conspiracy theories. It's not a bad blend and I will see how the tin ages, but I probably won't buy again as there are so many better blends out there. Smoke in Peace- Lager
