Burleys, Virginias, black cavendish and a touch of Latakia come together in perfect harmony to create this very unique mild-to-medium bodied blend. Subtleties of wild berries, rum, and hickory with a sweet spice on the finish remind us of days gone by when our forefathers cultivated and cured fine pipe tobaccos. The smoking qualities of Colonial Pastime are similar to that of an English pipe tobacco, but with the room note of an aromatic.

Mild Mild to Medium Mild Very Pleasant

One of the better English/Aro blends I have come across. When you first light up you get a nice berry flavor. This stays a while but is not overpowering in any way. Tha Latikia comes through to give it that little spice. This is also a mild blend that you can smoke all day. I think any aro and or English fan would enjoy this.

Ooooh this Aromatic /English Hybrid is really interesting. CP is perfect for the smoker that enjoys the Latakia smokiness but needs an Aromatics room note either for smoking in the house or say at a BBQ with friends, family members that would not enjoy the aroma of an English blend. I did taste the hint of Berry and loved the interplay between the Latakia and aromatic flavors. Three stars as I would most defiantly recommend this blend but for me I only smoke English blends at night or before bed so I prefer to keep my Aromatics and Natural blends separate.

Mild Mild Medium Pleasant to Tolerable

This tobacco has a very unsatisfying quality about it. It really does smoke like an English blend but has no aromatic room note. The latakia adds some smoky notes and robustness to it. There is no bite, except when pulling hard on your pipe. The room note is somewhat pleasant and the tobacco burns down to the bottom of the bowl to a fine white ash. Few re-lights are needed.

A very pleasant no bite blend, Colonial Pastime is a tobacco that will suit many tastes. It has enough nicotine for those who need it but leaves a very pleasant room note. The Latakia and Virginias are present, but are moderated nicely by the Cavendish. This blend will not bite, Another nice thing is that once you have done a char light, it stays lit. Burns cool and leaves a nice grey ash with no moisture at the bottom. Overall a fine tobacco worth trying. For me, it is now my all day smoke. I must add that Milan has the best customer service I have seen.
