Burns very well, no bite, medium flavor and mild/med nic content. The black cav is slightly sweet, latakia is lightly smoky and leathery, and the perique is added with a light touch as to not overpower the blend. Not the most complex, but I like this blend for early in the morning or when the weather is too hot for a full English or Balkan blend. This blend would also be good for aromatic smokers who want to experiment with a little latakia.
I enjoyed Sam's Blend. It is not for the faint-hearted. The Latakia is there, but the Perique stands out. I have noticed in many cases, when you mix Cavendish with a Latakia blend, it will tame the Latakia more than the other tobacco's in the blend. The Cavendish does mellow out the smoke as a whole, but the Perique stands tall in this one. However, it is still a good smoke. The Perique is quite earthy in this and not peppery to me. Therefore it was enjoyable.
