G. L. Pease Westminster

Westminster: The very essence of the traditional English mixture; rich, elegant, refined, and exquisitely balanced. New World red Virginias are enhanced with a gentle caress of bright leaf, then lavishly seasoned with rich oriental tobaccos and generous measures of noble Cyprus mountain latakia. Westminster is a satisfying blend, presenting layers of flavor to delight the senses and develop in the bowl. A perfect everyday English mixture. Full bodied.
Notes: Westminster was introduced in January, 2007.

My God this is good stuff.

This one has overtones of a tangy sweetness. A fruitiness but not one from flavorings mind you, but one of a balance of natural tobaccos intermingling between the outstanding orientals , bright and red Virginias. The Latakia is also there but doesn't overwhelm the the blend. I also find it pretty forgiving and had no trace of bite from smoking it a little faster than I probably should have been due to my excitement. 3 out of 4 stars. By far the best Pease blend I have tried.

Update: I set an opened can of this aside for a couple years and it has dried out somewhat but not too dry. It has gained a more uniform and even flavor between the components which to me tastes buttery, leathery and fruity all at the same time. It stays lit much better with some age on it.

Possibly the finest English/Oriental blend I?ve ever tried, but unfortunately, like most Peases, it?s more bother than it?s worth. For one thing, good luck keeping it lit. Once you do, though, you will enjoy a powerful but reserved full tobacco experience girded by rich latakia and deep Orientals. This is the most enjoyable Pease blend I?ve tried so far, but like everything he makes, the description is always more inviting than the actual smoking experience. Pease is a great writer and marketer, but when all is said and done, it?s high falutin C & D without the southern charm. This is how I remember Dunhill to be before they went EU. A fine blend, though in this vein I prefer C & D?s less aggressive, equally flavorful Yale Mixture.

Three and a half of five stars
