Tell me if this sounds like you and your life as a pipe smoker: you picked up the pipe in your early twenties and being a novice packed an OTC aromatic. A few years later your taste buds change and you start packing your bowl with an English or Danish blend in order to expand the horizon. So you try every mixture from A-Z. As you hit the near 40 mark, one learns proper pipe tobacco preparation and suddenly you start zoning in on a regular rotation of blends. Pulling away from English or Danish and coming back to simple non-aromatic blends. Largo fits the latter. My review is on Largo Gold (aka Mellow) I call this a guilty pleasure, no frills smoke. Smooth with a slight sweetness, nuttiness and floral under tone. When I waffe the bowl under my nose I detect a hint of cocoa. Soft on the palate and somewhat plain. Smokes cool with no bite unless you blaze the bottom of the bowl by overpuffing. This will not be an aromatic lover's cup of tea, but if you want a putt around the house or yard type with a subtle room note for cheap, this might be up your alley. In many ways this will echo BRG Mixture, just not as potent. If BRGM was to make a blend for cigarette tokers this is what it might taste like.
