One of the best English blends out there. The Syrian Latakia adds a nice mystique and complexity. This, along with Nat Sherman No. 536, is my favorite English blend. If you like English blends, this is a “must try”.
Very good tobacco as it lights and draws well. It has lots of flavor and strength. Not my favorite but very good.
This blend is a work of art. Like any good English, it has a bite yet at the same time it's also very smooth and inviting after a long day or first thing in the morning. This tobacco is a must have in your rotation for any time of day it does not disappoint!
I have heard people compare Artisan's Blend to Nightcap. Alas it is not, it is much better! Is it a true English? No, but why make every English the same. It stands on its own. And is one of my top 3 blends. Give it a try.
Burns smooth and cool in my doctor grabow golden duke. As someone who swapped from cigars to pipes, it fits the bill for the buzz derived from a medium to dark cigar. If you like the taste and smell of tobacco and not bubblegum/ash then this is the blend for you. Straight from the tin it lights easily and stays lit.
