The traditional English-Orient-Virginia mixture with a higher proportion of Syrian Latakias, full of spicy, yet comfortable with the typical soft, subtle natural sweetness of Virginia. Slow smoldering and cool smoke.
This is a nice and subtle medium range English smoke. Similar to Davidoff?s Royalty in that is not as mineral or ?balkanic? as other English/Scottish mixtures, it still has a bit more of the oriental components to provide a nice, pungent zest. It burns very nicely and cool. It is also similar to Bjarne´s The Special One, with far more body and character. The Latakia used in here (I think it could be Syrian) is less toasty than others I have tried. In fact, it has a kind of sweet sourness that underlines its flavour. Very nice. Not exceedingly moist, the tobacco packs well and has good burning qualities.
Not a bad alternative to more traditional, heavy tasting English/Scottish style mixtures.
