This truly is one of the greats in the English blend world. It smokes cool, slow, and cellars incredibly well. It is what I call a kitchen sink blend because it has about everything in it (Kentucky, perique, VA, latakia, and black cavendish, but without a big Nicotine hit, and actually quite smooth. Smokes better a bit on the dry side, and to my palate, very very close to Balkan Sobranie as I've ever had, except in cut.
It was decent but I was not overly impressed.

This blend is made of incredible depth, complexity, and intensity, but without vulgar spicy... To smoke in a privileged moment. In my top five forever.
This is a sterling contender for the affections of the English blend lover. Plenty of tasty Latakia, but with a classy supporting cast, and very little bite. It's going to be one of my regulars. If you're in the quest for replacements for the beloved Dunhill Englishes you'll want to try this one right away.
I found this to be a good tobacco although I think a little too spicy for me. It packed well and lit and burned well however my H&H choice is still Magnum Opus. I would buy again but not unless they were out of MO.
Wonderful flavors and to me it's full bodied, but smooth. If you're a Dunhill Nightcap lover give this a shot, could be a great replacement for you.
This is now my favorite English Blend. Wonderful flavors, burns consistently, and smooth all the way. If you are interested in moving into full flavor tobaccos this is where to go. Can't wait to try White Knight too. This and G.L Pease Westminster are my go to daily smokes.
Where did it go?
I am a huge fan of Blackhouse and White Knight. These have become my affordable daily smoke. Yet I can't find them anywhere for weeks. So bummed.
