A really good English type smoke. Not to strong . Not harsh. No bite when you don't over do it. Really good flavor and top quality.
Hands down, my favorite English blend. I smoke this every morning, and it never gets old.Quite a complex blend! Definitely not a Lat-bomb, but the Latakia makes its presence known.It is oriental-forward, and the red Virginias give it a yummy bready-ness. The Cavendish rounds it out with a nice, natural sweetness; it sounds like it wouldn't work well, but it absolutely does! If you like a good medium English, but are tired of all the cookie-cutter blends, get some Red Rap!
This, along with Black Mallory, is top shelf, iconic Scottish Mixture. I love it in the 500g bags!
This tobacco is still quite good, ( The caveat ) BUT, it’s not the same as it was in days of yore. I hear that so much with so many things. All that aside, don’t miss this blend. DO NOT MISS THIS BLEND! The finest blend with a dram or more of Scotch Whisky. Smoky, leathery, smooth. AMAZING.
not enough strengh
Orientals take the lead (which I prefer), Latakia gives it spice, Black Cavendish adds cream & smoothness and Virginia’s are bright and add some snap. RR is a perfect Scottish Blend. If you were to alter the components in any way you would take away the magic. A masterpiece.
Set this out to dry until just on the verge of crispy, load into a wide bowl pipe (7/8" diameter is the sweet spot for me), and enjoy a flavor burst of sour spice with a rich base of smoke and tangy red Virginia. Beautiful stuff and consistent tin after tin.
This is a fantastic Scottish blend. Typical high-quality Rattray leaf, very smooth and mild, yet flavorful. I wish this stuff was easier to come by in the states. Or that I liked it less so I wouldn't care that it's hard to get. Definitely one of my favorite blends from one of my favorite blenders.
One of my favorite tobaccos.
