In my experience, this blend must be smoked slowly and preferably in a wide bowl. Purportedly it’s just VA & Latakia in the blend but it feels to me as though there are lots of components that all jockey for first position throughout the smoke.

The most dominant flavor I’m getting is a vinegary sweetness like ketchup. Big time vinegar. It almost makes me sweat. An occasional, light vanilla note comes through, and a peppery vinegar on the retrohale (akin to perique). Doesn’t bite but kinda dries my tongue out. Latakia is faint. Overall it lacks depth of flavor for me which is what I love best about English blends. Smoked too fast and it tastes like rubber...? (I tried in two pipes of differing shapes and this happened both times).

In summation, to me this is more of an Virginian blend with a fake British accent than a full l-on English. If you are a straight VA or VAPer smokers coming around to Latakia, give this a try. If you are an English lover maybe skip out on this one. Similar and better B&B blend IMO is Frog Level.
