Medium Mild Mild to Medium Pleasant

Cult - Embassy.

The tin-note clarifies that this is an aromatic English. Although it doesn't smell of just vanilla, it's also sweet. It currently says coarse cut, but it's basically a ribbon cut blend. The mixture's made of black, brown, and a few light yellow pieces, and is nicely hydrated.

I find the vanilla flavour's slightly stronger for the initial part of a bowl, but calms down quite quickly. It then stays as a fairly mild, but consistent flavour throughout. The Latakia gives the leading tobacco flavour, but isn't overly smoky, sharp, or caustic. The back-up flavour's a creamy, hay-like, and sweet-nutty, one. It burn's brilliantly to a pure white ash, without giving so much as a nip to the tongue.

Nicotine: medium. Room-note: pleasant.

Embassy? A good smoke. Highly recommended:

Mild to Medium Extremely Mild Mild to Medium Pleasant

This was a unique smoking experience for me because I had never experienced a blend such as this. My Latakia experience has only been with non-aromatics. I could not note a casing per say but the flavor was sweet from the first light with the smokiness of the Latakia prominent. The sweetness comes from the Virginias and the Cavendish with the Burley adding balance. It smokes without bite and the flavor is consistent throughout the burn. The Latakia stands out, but it is not overpowering. It adds a special extra difference to a good tasting smoke. I have tried to purchase more and so far have been unsuccessful in finding it available. If I had known it was going to be so good I would have bought more initially. Hopefully it will become available once again so I can stock up on more for future enjoyment.(7/13/17) It is available again and I bought several more tins. I really do like this smoke!

Mild Mild Mild to Medium Pleasant to Tolerable

This is a really interesting blend. I was intrigued by the possibility of a tasty vanilla aromatic, but this tobacco is much more. The vanilla notes are strongest in the tin, and present really in the first few lights. Midway through the bowl, the Latakia comes through subtly but clearly, almost with a bit of spice. It is not heavy or smokey, but there is a strength to the smoke midway through that is not present in the early, sweeter puffs. The tobacco burns to a fine ash all the way to the bottom, has no bite if you smoke it at moderate pace, and has a nice light gray smoke. I enjoy this smoke when I am looking for a lighter aromatic, but still want a bit of traditional English in the smoke as well. It is not a lot of either, but there is enough of a presence of both that it is worthwhile to try though I probably won't buy another tin for a while.
