I never thought I’d leave a review for pipe tobacco, I typically enjoy it leisurely, not all day. Tried this first out of my order and it tasted like it was sprayed with windex or something. Had a very unpleasant taste, inhale was also pretty bad. I wouldn’t recommend anyone wasting the money trying it. Just my $.02
Does not taste as strong as it smells, but packs a delicate aroma. As other reviews have said, it really doesn't separate itself from other English blends and was a little boring. But overall a nice smooth taste with a little spice.
I tried this blend based on a recommendation from a You-Tube Pipe commentator. I am glad I did. If you like English tobacco blends I do not feel like you can go wrong trying it. I plan to keep a supply on hand at all times.
Nice smoke, but not to my taste.
Best english blend I've tried so far. Excellent smoky taste, the latakia is right there, strong, but so well blended that you'll want more and more. No bite at all, incredible taste and smell.
Received it ahead of time and it is the best pipe tobacco I've ever tried.
Hands down, the best English blend I've smoked, and I always keep a tin in stock. It'll knock you back but won't bite. Very rich and complex.
I already have reviewed this tobacco when it included the Syrian Latakia, it was my favorite English tobacco. Now that the Syrian is gone for good and Cyprian Latakia has taken its place I have to rate this new tobacco a 4, good but not as good as the original!
The taste and aroma is marvelous.
