    Sweet, mellow English

    Posted by Jalil on 26th Aug 2019

    Unlike most English blends I’ve tried, this blend includes Burley, whose distinctive sweet note is very noticeable and adds a nice depth or dimension to what would otherwise I think to be a fairly typical orientals-forward English blend.
    Compared to my other favorites:
    Dunhill My Mixture 965: this blend is milder, the Latakia note is more subdued, and of course it’s much sweeter.
    Davidoff Royalty: this blend is softer and sweeter and of similar strength and smokiness.
    Frog Morton: this blend is very comparable but not nearly so strong. The thick plumes, the layered complexity, the sweet and the spicy, are all very comparable, except that here the sweetness has the unmistakable burley note, and while the Frog satisfies me after a single bowl, I find myself going back for more and more, maybe I smoke too much of it!

    Smooth. 4.5 stars.

    Just to add to my previous review; this is a really smooth blend.
    I've since bought a pound of Izmir Turkish & realize that despite its name, the latakia is more forward than the Oriental.
    Not a lat-bomb by any means but it does scratch the latakia itch.

    English Oriental is not only really good straight, but it's also really good as a blender to lift other blends.
    It's so good that I bought another half pound.

    4.5 stars.

    PS 306 English Oriental

    Posted by Paul W. on 5th May 2019

    This is my first oriental, I have nothing to compare so I'll judge it for what it is.

    It seems very latakia forward but I suspect that this an interplay of latakia & the orientals.
    Has a full taste & the orientals tingle my mouth.
    Mild nic-hit.
    The not too sweet black cavendish works well with the slightly sour note from the orientals.

    For me, it's an intriguing blend that I quite enjoy.
    It's also very good mixed with English blends.

    A must try for latakia lovers.

    Middle of the road English

    Posted by Brady on 16th Aug 2018

    This is a very nice middle of the road English blend. I do have a few spots in the smoke where it tastes flat, but maybe I just have not found the right pipe for it, or because of its smoothness makes me feel that way. Won't bite. Would recommend to others, beginners and veterans alike.
