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.

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.
This is a fantastic English blend. Smooth but amazing flavors. Burns steady all the way to the bottom. After experimenting with a great range of English blends this is my go to from now on. A great great choice for anyone considering moving into full flavor tobaccos.
For those of you looking for THE classic English smoking blend-look no further... I keep a pipe tobacco dossier of the good, the bad and the ugly, and this rates in my top 5 as the quintessential smoking mixture. Just the right tobaccos in the perfect proportions! It is my everyday English mixture, and until I find that sought after "holy grail", it shall remain at the top of the heap. Look no further as your wait is over. G.L. Pease's Westminster keeps it's #1 one slot of that genre. Enjoy, as the ONE is here. Bank on it...
