Lemon Virginias, Smyrna and other Orientals, and Latakia are combined in Sutliff's Heavy English, which despite its name is rather lightly balanced as far as Latakia mixtures go — some even find it quite suitable as an "all day" type of smoke.
Despite the name, this English is nice. I liked the Latakia flavor, and the oriental added a nice spice to the taste. The strength of the name is nothing in keeping with the tobacco as I would consider this more light - medium English. Still, this ... Read Moreis a nice English.

So this is a light english. Sweet, not harsh, not overwhelming in any way, but if you add some strong coffee, oh my God, it is perfect! I have joyfully smoked it every day for 2 weeks. Without coffee is average, so i would say that the 3.72 (4 stars)... Read Morepoints scored are a fair mark, but this is now my favourite morning coffee tobacco and just for that it has my 5*.

Very similar to Match 20(reviews are quite similar for that matter) but a tad sweeter. Read Less
This blend is primarily a mixture of Virginia and Latakia, Oriental is mixed slightly. So, Oriental seems to exist as a spice for this blend.

Sometimes it’s nice to smoke something that doesn’t stick to your tongue and palette, something that allows you to smoke bowl after bowl. That’s what you get with Heavy English. It straddles the fence between English and Balkan, burning coolly and mi... Read Moreldly. Read Less
The quality of this blend convinces methat a lot of the tinned mixtures like Squadron Leader are over-rated. This bulk English is every bit as good, in my opinion, and a lot less expensive. I wouldn't say it's got one distinctive characteristic that ... Read Moreseparates it from everything else, but it's proof you don't have to pay tin prices to get tin quality. Lovely, lat-forward English at a great price.
If I have a bone to pick with this one, it is only the name. "Heavy" English seems wrong to me for this one. Perhaps Sutliff should find some as yet unused or hilarious English town name for this one, rather than trying to scare off lovers of lighter mixtures. How about "Squatney Mixture," (Spinal Tap reference) or (actual town name) "Bitchfield Blend." Read Less
This is a very pleasant smoke not only for its aroma but also for the taste. It is very floral with spice and a light nectar like sweetness from start to finish. This will go good with many different tea varieties to pair with.
I’ve smoked a lot of things that are labelled ‘orientals.’ Thanks to the now defunct McClelland brands I have a pretty clear idea of what constitutes oriental influence. 503 is some lat and a lot of virginias and just enough oriental to justify cal...

Lots of smoke and a clean ash. Read Less
Nothing special about this Tobacco. Nothing jumps out in flavor's. Pretty bland really. You can smell the Latakia, but you can also smell a heavy chemical odor as well. I wouldn't buy this again. Ever.
It starts a bit light on Latakia but grows until mid-bowl where its name takes all its sense. Quite a spicy smoke. If you're looking for something loaded on Latakia you will not be displeased with this blend. Remember that its spiciness builds up to ... Read Moremid bowl, then it's full spicy. 4 1/2 stars.
