A quality blend on the lighter side of the "English" Tradition, comprising a generous portion of high sugar, bright flue-cured leaf, filled out with rich red Virginias, a hint of latakia, a bit of light, air-cured for body, and finally seasoned with just enough perique to smooth the smoke and provide an engaging, fruity spice. Prince's Blend has a delicate taste and aroma and stays alight well, burning to a clean, dry ash, leaving the pipe and the palate clean and refreshed. - Gregory Pease

The mildly grassy, very sugary, deep citrus sweet bright flue cured and air cured Virginias take a lead over the tangy dark fruit, earthy, lightly spicy red Virginias. Both the flue cured and the air cured brights sport a little grassiness. The very nutty, molasses sweet burley also has some earth, and a touch of cocoa in the background. The spice, raisins and plum from the perique continually underscores the experience. The smoky, woody sweet Cyprian latakia is a gentle addition, mostly providing a flavor push to the blend. The nic-hit is just past the mild threshold. The strength and taste levels are a step closer to mild than they are to medium. No chance of bite, and has no dull or harsh moments. It burns at a reasonable pace, cool and clean with a very smoothly sweet, and lightly spicy consistent, subtly nuanced well balanced taste. Requires few relights, and leaves little dampness in the bowl as it easily burns to ash. Has a very pleasant after taste and room note. An easy going all day smoke with a little character. Three and a half stars.

The grassy really sweet Virginias citrusy really forward , the subtle smokey sweet Woody Latakia in the background , very nutty pie crusty burleys dancing through the experience, I get a little spice from the perique little rasiny, sometimes I detect a slight cherry note with the fruity taste of the blend somewhat of a natural cherry flovor possibly the red Virginias. Over all great blend for me satisfaction at its finest with this blend.

My first bowl out a newly opened tin was not enjoyable. The tobacco was too moist and it needed some air. I put the tin away for three weeks and let it air before my second bowl. Both airing and drying, completely changed the taste and burning qualities. The second bowl was delicious. The burley and virginias compose the majority of the blend, with a delicate dose of latakia and perique added. I can taste just a light touch of Perique in every puff, but the latakia is further in the background. The black cavendish adds smoothness, but is not evident in the taste. Prince's Blend burns cool and dry from beginning to end and leaves a delicate taste on the tongue. This is a light English with flavor. It is composed of quality tobaccos and is a masterful composition for those who enjoy milder blends. I'm one of them.
