Robert McConnell - Regent Street (Heritage).

I'm a sucker for a decent VaPer in the mornings and having finished off my tin of Charatan Victorian Mixture (another Elizabethan match) I opened this up. A good choice!

The appearance is very congruous with Dunhill's original, and the moisture of mine was perfect. The smell from it's one of a Perique heavy VaPer, being really acute.

The smoke? An avatar of this genre for most who crave Perique; IMO! I get the most nuances of Virginia at the start; more of a fruity flavour than grassy or sharp. But after about a quarter the Perique becomes even more spirited and is an UNMISTAKABLE addition; very, very, spicy; like the tin-note implied! It burns perfectly, generating a mid-temperature smoke.

Nicotine: maybe above medium. Room-note: not the best!

Regent Street? A firm our stars:

Highly recommended.

This review is based on a 2 year old sample I received from a fellow pipe smoker. I used a Torben Dansk Extra, which has a rather tall and narrow bowl. No filter.

Really nice ribbon cut. Easy to pack and light. Does not require a lot of re-lights. The taste develops quite nicely during the smoke.

The first quarter is rather bready, with just a hint of pepper. The second quarter adds sweet, dried fruits to the mix. The third quarter tastes much the same but with a little more spice to it. The last quarter is quite spicy without any sharp notes. Dried/stewed plums and pepper. Tasty stuff!

All in all a very good, easy to smoke VaPer. The ribbon cut is a nice change of pace for this type of blend.

8/10 - highly recommended!
