This is a very nice English blend that stands on it's own as it's own flavor and blend. It's not trying to imitate anything else and it's very nice to find one this pleasant in bulk.
This tobacco blend is rightly named "Proper English." There isn't any 'topping,' just the natural flavorings from the tobacco components. Latakia is a major part of this blend (not usual in a Danish blended English type). I have been smoking this blend for many years now, 4 to 6 bowls a day. I switch between this and Balkan Supreme after 1/2 pound, (also blended by Stokkebye for Arango). If you like English blends you won't be sorry for having tried this one, in fact you will be pleased by the quality-to-price ratio. Happy puffing...Lou
This is an excellent blend!!!!! I really loved it, way better than many renamed tinned english blends.
Let me begin by saying that for the price it is a great buy. Now! To the actual smoking. It was very pleasant, very few times did I had to relight, Latakia was there but not overly overwhelming and there was no tongue bite that I could detect. I prefer a little more Latakia in my English, but again over all as a daily smoke you can puff on this all day.
From the way it was described by others and the way it smelled in the bag, I had my doubts. I'm not too keen on the idea of smoking Kingsford Mesquite charcoal. I wanted to try an "oriental-heavy English blend" and this was what the guy at pipe shop suggested. This is now my go-to non-aromatic. It has a nice "earthy" flavour with a bit of musky and leathery tones. It is very flavourful but without being pungent like a lot of mixtures with lots of burley. It also is easy to pack, stays lit, and stays pretty cool in the bowl.even with a more zealous puffer like myself. I'll probably buy a pound bag here when I run through the 2oz bag I just bought.
This has got to be the best bulk English blend on the market! So much flavor!
This is a great English blend. The latakia shines as a top player as it should. The orientals add a balanced touch. The bulk price is very affordable. I buy mine a pound at a time and jar. Please give it a try for an affordable bulk English.
Had a couple bowls around some friends who noted it smelled like a "fresh linen campfire." Good scent, not too much taste.
