The Khartoum is based on ready rubbed Virginias, Kentucky, perique, black cavendish and Havana tobaccos. Lovingly seasoned, the Khartoum convinces with strong and idiosyncratic flavors. The ethereal, spicy aroma of the Havana tobacco joins the sweet and smoky notes of the Latakia. Latakia meets Havana, a tobacco combination that will captivate experienced smokers and lovers of this tobacco genre with its range of flavors and strength of character.

This is my first cigar leaf blend, so I may update this review in the future. Being that there is no review yet, I will offer my opinion.

I've long enjoyed English blends, they've been my favorite since I took up pipe smoking 10 years ago. This is a quality English blend with a complementary dose of cigar leaf. The smoke is characteristically English, but the cigar leaf comes through and elevates it to something a little more robust. HU does not skimp on quality, all the tobaccos are of superior quality.

The room note is surprisingly pleasant considering it contains cigar leaf. I don't have a basis of comparison to other cigar leaf blends, but I can say that this is a fantastic English blend and a good choice for anyone curious about cigar leaf blends.
