Another Krumble Kake from Cornell & Diehl, we’re really not sure where the Bow-Legged Bear gets its name. Regardless, it’s a strong English blend. Fans of the super-strong Latakias and Periques will like this blend.

- Room Note:
Upon opening the tin the 1st scent that I detect is a sour one. The sourness is also what remains in my mouth after the bowl is finished. About half way into the bowl there is pretty good flavor. Maybe the Turkish is creating the sourness, I just don’t know. This is one I will not buy again.
Notes of currant and vanilla cover a lightly nutty base. Thoroughly enjoyable. Smokes cool right after opening. A notable nicotine content, but not overpowering. The natural sweetness still bursts through.
Very nice...perfect moisture content right out of the time..need more.
Burleys and Virginia round and sweet balancing the Latakia which is held in check by the Perique. I smoke mostly English and Balkan and this is my current best English for cost and availability. I am buying 8 oz. Cause it's easy to enjoy and it doesn't get old.
BLB is fantastic! You get smokiness from the Latakia, a nice peppery spice from the Perique ( it tends to dominate which I like), nicotine from the Burley, as well as a hint of sweetness from the Virginias. If you like med/strong English blends, you should try this.
