Sutliff’s Tobacco Galleria is a line of tobacco blends designed to be cost effect, but never lacking in taste. Fox and Hound is a traditional English Blend. Red Virginias, Turkish tobaccos, Burley, Latakia, and Perique mixed expertly for a complex and soothing experience. A rich smooth smoke with pops of pepper, sweet cedar, and nuttiness aided by the Burley perfectly added. A blend as pleasing to the taste buds as it is to your wallet.

I enjoy this smoke. Very good blend, with a little latakia, and some orientals that show up from time to time. I´m into heavy-latakia blends, but this is a very good English blend because of the price. Far better than many of Sutliff's English blends that I tried.
If you are an English lover and looking for a great tobacco blend that won't break the bank, you may not find a better choice than Sutliff's Tobacco Galleria: Fox & Hound. This blend has a lot going for it. The Latakia is cool and smooth burning with that all-important smokiness for good English flavor. Virginia seems to have some age to it with a fermented fruit tanginess that is bolstered by the (I'd guess the substantial amount of) Perique. The Burley plays a supporting role but brings a nice dry nutty flavor to the overall taste. You could stop blending there and have a nice English mixture, but I believe the addition of the Turkish orientals is what adds the “wow” factor for me. Slightly pungent or sour, the Turkish gives this a richness that boosts the flavor and makes this somewhat mild-medium blend appear to be much bolder than it actually is. I believe this to be firmly in the medium range, though I can't quite pin down the nicotine content. It seems to be more than I expect each time. This is probably from the Burley and I actually like the nic level even as an all-day smoke. The ribbon cut is nice and color ranges from medium-brown to black, mostly having a darker appearance. The tin note is a sort of dry musty aroma but this translates more to room note than to taste. I am pleasantly surprised at how good this blend is for its price. The quality here could easily sell in a $10 tin. Luckily, Fox & Hound has a great value and taste that English fans can appreciate. Enjoy.
This Fox & Hound tobacco is by far my favorite, it has a nice flavor, and great scent, It tinges with a sweet and tangy delight to the senses. Very good price for such a good item, I would recommend this to beginner pipe smokers.
