If you like a little spice in your bowl, come on in, this is your blend. Simply delicious.
Started pipe smoking again for the last month. Google didn't exist back then so I never knew what I was smoking. The store by me changed hands and I was really let down because they no longer sold an English oriental blend. Fast forward, I have mainly been smoking aros. I bought this to expand my pallet and see what I like. HOLY HELL!!! This is intoxicating. The tin note shocked me and I instantly knew this would be complex. I noted scotch, the ambesol peaty side to the isle scotch I prefer. The first half of the bowl is SPICY. For a novice, I first thought tongue bite but after researching it I realized it wasn't. Man is this good stuff. I am in ecstasy writing this while I enjoy it for the first time. The spicy remains but takes a backseat to hints of sweetness. I wish I could describe the mixture of tobaccos but I am new to this style blend. Definitely has a nic hit, I inhale, it's 4 pm and I can't get enough so it's not nauseating. I would highly doubt my wife would like the room note. For me, however, heaven. I can't stop sniffing it up. Every drag wafting into my nostrils, pure bliss. I have done a lot of travel and this just feels like something special you get in a hard-to-find place. Like spice in a food that is only in one village. This is an absolute must-buy even for someone new who wants to explore like me.
This was a first try buy, and now stands in my top two English blend spots along with G.L Pease Westminster. Excellent smooth and smokey, with a slight sweetness and leathery essence. Truthfully can’t tell which one I like more now, and that’s quite annoying to me. Either way, Try this top shelf C&D blend.
