Inspired by an old Professor, this tobacco is an excellent entree into a fine English tobacco blend. Hand blended with Latakia, among others, this is a tobacco that has a smokey taste and can be smoked all day.

The Latakia and Orientals deliver the smoky, earthy, notes desired in a medium English blend. The bright Virginias deliver a very noticeable sweetness. An immediate comparison that comes to mind is Dunhill Standard Mixture. Though it is serviceable and I will continue to smoke it time to time, I do find it to be inferior in quality compared to Standard Mixture, GL Pease Westminster, and other premium blends. An easy all day smoke however. It smokes cool and leaves little moisture at the end of the bowl.

The Latakia is a little less present than the earthy orientals. You really start feeling it after the first third/half of bowl in a subtle sweet smokey barbecue sort of flavour. The balance between these components is good. The Virginia is there to enhance the thing with floral and grassy tones. Notes of fresh bread also enjoyed.

I find it pleasant because it is very well balanced, but I prefer more complex/deep blends. Easy go-to everyday smoke.

Pipe Used: corn cob, billard briar
