An excellent oriental forward blend, very nice smoke.
I purchased this on a whim because of the unusual name. I don't imagine we will see a successive roll-out of similarly themed mixes, although I could see the logic in Anglican and Dutch Reformed blends. But, this was a surprisingly light, cool smoking yet flavorful mix. I usually purchase in bulk, and if this were packaged bulk, it would be on my shopping list.
A mild blend, very light on the Latakia. The Orientals don't smack your face, but rather compliment the blend instead of taking the lead. My wife loves the smell of this stuff.
I opened my tin the day I received it and smoked it. Normally I let my tobacco age 3-6 months to see what I have. It is one of your mild and balanced tobaccos. Will be in my rotation.
For my first English tobacco. This was a very good choice. Very flavorful tobacco blend, very smooth throughout bowl.
Such a unique blend. One of my favorites, and I've tried most of them. Latakia is pretty light and the Oriental blends seamlessly with the Virginia. A masterpiece.
This is not flashy tobacco. But wait for a second, the reason I like this tobacco is that it is straight forward.
Light smoke throughout the bowl.
The smooth subtle sweetness and creamy.
Little to no residue in the bottom of the bowl.
Great for breaking in a pipe.
A decent English / Balkan type blend that to me is in the same vein as SG’s Squadron Leader. However Presbyterian is significantly lighter on the Latakia with Virginia’s & Orientals controlling the flavor. TobaccoPipes is the best ... hands down!!!
A nice smooth tobacco mixture. Good for an everyday smoke.
