No, you did not read this tobacco's specifications wrong. It is indeed and English mixture that has a pleasant room note. This is most certainly not thanks to the Latakia, but to the generous dashing of Cavendish tobacco. The other components are various Orientals and an earthy Virginia leaf. This ribbon cut tobacco will pack easily into any pipe and smoke well under any circumstance.

- Room Note:
This blend delivers a good smoke, but there are some issues. First, it really doesn't wow me. It's kind of like ten or so other blends I'm too lazy to mention. It's nice, just not very interesting. Second, it burns a little hot, which is weird in an English blend.It makes for a good for a reading or writing smoke because there's not much to think about. Rattray's has much better blends.
Nice smoke easy draw all the way to the last bit of tobacco in the bowl.
