This bold New World pipe tobacco is the perfect English blend. If the delectable combination of Latakia, Orientals, and Virginia wasn't enough to get you excited, then perhaps the overwhelming boldness of the flavors will be. Because this is a rather potent blend, we suggest you avoid smoking this mixture on an empty stomach.

Luxurious flavor and fragrance. Having smoked the original Sobranie as well as the Arango blend I think Gary has done a terrific job of bringing Sobranie back to life. This one is well worth trying.
I went from 100% english blends then exclusively on to VA, VAPer, slices, cut flakes. Now I’m back to 50/50 with the English/Scottish blends. During my “Latakia only blends” period, the more robust and Latakia forward the better. Charles Fairmorn Lancers and other English slices were my mainstay, partly because of flavor, and in part because slices lasted longer than flakes and ribbon cuts. This one is a treat. Latakia is prominent here, but somehow less dominating than I’d expect. Maybe due to “mountain Cypriot grown”, or just the way it’s cured; not sure. The cut is between ribbon and hefty cut flakes. Regardless, it’s a treat, with the virginias lending a nice balance. A new favorite and highly recommended. Pipe Used: Karl Erik Danish freehand Age When Smoked: 3 months
This is a decent light English mixture, but not very flavorful to me taste. I regularly smoke Pease's Odyssey and was looking for a lighter English mix to alternate. My search continues; next up will be Abington.
Nice smoke. Similar to Dunhill's "standard" blend.
I am a Balkan fan, and what separates this blend from the rest, is that it’s very mild. None of the tobaccos take center stage. A little flavor from each of them. Usually, Balkans are lat bombs. Not here. I will keep this in my rotation.
Good solid tobacco. Balance in strength and taste and lights well and burns clean. Enjoyable and would buy again.
A full tasteful English blend that can be loaded into your bowl and smoked without rubbing out. Well worth keeping on hand to smoke regularly.
My first foray into English blends was a few weeks ago when I ordered a couple ounces of BS-005 when I opened my package from the post office I got smacked in the face with the mixed smell of burning wires/electrical fire and that incense the priest burns in Catholic Church. I was intrigued but wanted something milder to start out with. Westminster is on another level, I smell the campfire everyone talks about. My palate isn't refined enough to pick out the intricate nuances and aromas other distinguished gentlemen refer to all I can say is I like it and find myself reaching for this more than any other baccy in my small albeit growing stash.
A very fine English blend. Every time I light up a bowl I fall in love with it again. This is going to be in my regular rotation. If you're worried about Dunhill going out of business, fear not, my friend, and pick up a tin of Westminster. Rich flavor, from well-cured leaves. No bite! This is an English for English fans.
