Extravagant is the right word to characterize this mixture. We have revolutionized the traditional old English art of blending. The main ingredient is the finest spicy smoky Latakia. By adding highly aromatic Black Cavendish, this blend becomes smoother. A small portion of Burley gives a slight toasted aroma, and a pinch of bright Virginia brings a subtle sweet note. Mellow, but yet full-bodied aromas of honey and fruit essences result in a unique flavor. This tobacco will surely be a delight.

In all honesty, I tend to be leery of aromatics. Granted, that this is an English aromatic the light cherry note did worry me just a bit. The moisture content seems perfect out of the tin, but as others have noted, it was a bit hard to get going. On... Read Morece it finally caught, it was good to go. As I said this was a delightful smoke. The Latakia comes through smoky smooth and the slight hint of cherry Is a delightful Accent. Read Less
Wonderful tin note and a great light to medium English blend. Comes off as very well balanced, the aromatic aspect adds a gentle sweetness and interacts and enhances the other component tobaccos.

This blend, in my opinion, is superior in every way and I think would fill the need for anyone looking for a mildish English with a twist. Read Less
Wow. What a complex mixture with an amazing aroma. Very mild and subtle taste but it takes time to really pick it apart. I love this blend to bits and will always have some stored in the cellar.

Awfull, very disappointed that I bought into the hype. Can’t stand whatever it is they are using to artificially flavor this tobacco, it overwhelms the Latakia. English aromatic... no such thing exists.
This stuff is incredible. A perfect tin and room note, smooth to the end. It a perfect balance of aromatic and English, genuinely the best I’ve had that perfectly balances this act. Sign up and buy a tin when this is back in stock.
Sillem´s Black is a probe that there is a heaven, somewhere, maybe here, but fact.
I agree with the fact that this may be an introduction in the world of Latakia for the sweet toothed out there. Or else an english with a sweeter appeal for the ones... Read More who love the more robust and matured tobaccos, in either case, this is a sublime blend, exquisite, sybarite and unique, in a word, aristocratic.
A thing is for certain, this blend is perfect and unique, it has managed to balance the serious character of an english with the easy going personality of the aromatics without going insane.
It is mild to medium in taste, flavour and strength. I wish it could be stronger in latakia as it comes good. Creamy campfire with circumventing virginia notes of honey, cherries and vanilla. Smokey is robust, with great retrohale and very mild sweet aftertaste on the tongue but incredibly appetising.

As a rule, I avoid flavored aromatics like the plague. HoweverI was intrigued by the noyion of an English aromatic so I gave it a whirl.

It always takes me at least two bowls of a blend I have not had before to decide if I like it or not. I think it just takes me that long to get the packing just right as each blend for me is a little different despite maybe being the same cut.

This is like Captain black concentrate...(you could make 10 pouches of Capt. black from 1 tin of Sillem's).. it comes in a plastic bag inside the tin.. it smells like full cavendish , sweet fruits and honey, "they're not kidding".. it taste... Read Mores strong just like it smells.. i took a step back when i lit it, it's Potent!!! to say the least... sipping this you'll definitely taste the sweet and cavendish , so much so, it feels like a tongue depresser in the back of your throat .. smoke it fast and you get the latakia (spicy and campfire) with all the sweet.. this stuff is wild!.. people around you will love the smell of this .. if you are a regular aromatic smoker, you must try this... if you're like me and love the latakia bombs, this is a different animal .. one tin is enough for me, but i can see why people want this stuff by the case.
