A full Scottish-Oriental mixture produced from a skillful wedding of Mountain latakia, red Virginias, Carolinas and liberal amounts of Macedonian Leaf.

I like a good mild English now and again as much as the next guy, and this one is excellent. Pouch note is orientals then latakia then Virginia. In the pipe the orientals and latakia play vey well together and both not overpowering the base weed. There is a really tangible and satisfying mouth feel to this tobacco when smoked. It is very smooth and flavorful. You are not left with a layer of tarry goo stuck to your membranes like so many others of this category.

Im going to give this a four star for an initial review, Ill revisit when I've finished the bit I bought to try.

Very smooth. Just a full, pleasant tobacco flavor with smoky spicy notes, neither faint nor overpowering. No evident flavorings or topping and never bland. I'm breaking in a new briar with alternating half-bowls of it and Dunhill 965, my go-to on hand tinned tobacco, The Campbell's spiciness is broader but not as sharp and the burn seems a little cooler and more moist, but not at all soggy or bitter. Head to head, the Dunhill 965 is a hot espresso shot compared to the Campbell's French roast with a splash of cream. A very similar profile, but the Dunhill is a sharper and more bracing smoke while the Campbell's is a lasting warmth. Both smoke down to the bottom of the bowl with no gunk or mess, just a fine ash.

I haven't tried Dunhill's Nightcap, but from what people have said of it compared to 965, it sounds like Campbell's #11 is one more step along the same spectrum: Nightcap - 965 - Campbell's #11. To my taste, I think I'll use the Campbell's as an all-day with the 965 for times when I want a sharper smoke.

An impressive oriental blend from a small, storied tobacco shop in East Lansing, MI. The flavors work elegantly together - the orientals headline the show, the Latakia adds some backbone and depth, and the rest (mainly Virginias) are there to provide the backdrop and round everything out. The smell from the bag is a very light English with a good amount of the oriental funk. It tastes and smells the same when smoked. The tobacco had about the right amount of moisture in it, but would benefit from a little drying time. It has a very nice mouthfeel too, substantial but not at all harsh. Would highly recommend picking up a bag of this and a few other blends from Campbell’s if you’re ever close to East Lansing.
