I ordered Eastfarthing as part of Sutliff's virtual pipe club. I can't even describe my new found love for this blend. All I can tell you is that if your reading these reviews because you're on the fence then stop being a wuss and just order it. I burned through my first tin in a few days and have already ordered more. This is one you'll want to stock up on. I promise.
A fantastic blend from Sutliff. A tin of Eastfarthing was given away at the Richmond, Va Pipe Show in October 2019. The Latakia does not overpower the Virginia’s and the Stoved Burleys. Very well balanced. A joy to smoke and will only get better with age.
Nice flavor and great aromatics. Overall a very easy and pleasant smoke.
I just got my order in of Eastfarthing and it has gone to the top of my list for English Blends. Let it be known that I am not a huge Latakia fan. I find most blends to Lat forward, not letting you taste the other component tobaccos but not here. This has a beautiful balance! This is how Latakia should be used in a blend. It is sweet but not overly so. Very impressed. Any Brandybuck would be happy to sip some of this blend in their pipe!!
I just got in some Eastfarthing and this has gone to the top is my list for English blends.
While this blend is substantially sweeter than Frog Morton and Frog Morton Cellar, it certainly has a very similar quality to those two blends. It's got just enough smokey latakia to keep things interesting but not enough to make your house smell like you lit a campfire in the living room. Out of the tin, the tobacco is a little wet, but with a few minutes drying, it's perfectly smokable. Leaves a bit of dottle and requires a few relights, but stays pleasant for the whole bowl, not something you can say about many aromatics. I recommend it!
