As the name implies, Cornell & Diehl's Smooth English, a blend of Burleys, unsweetened Black Cavendish, and Latakia, is an impeccable choice for a morning smoke or for those who are beginning to experiment with English blends.
VERY well done! As most already know, VA/LAT is sweet and smoky, but VA smokes hot and is sharp. Well, Burley/Latakia smokes cool and is smooth, but lacks the sweetness... that's where the cavendish comes in, contributing a sweetness and enhancing ... Read Morethe smoothness even more. Burley and latakia are wonderful autumn-like leaf, and this fits the bill. Smooth, mild and wonderfully composed. I love burley/latakia/cavendish mixtures, and a good one is hard to find, in proper proportions. This is an all day/everyday, mild, old-fashion mixture. It's offers a cool and smooth creaminess.

I could tinker with a pinch of this or that and if I don't get it quite right, no big deal. Then again, if I feel lazy, it's pretty darn good the way it is. Read Less
This blend burns well, has a light nic content, and mild flavor. Sweetness from the BCav, didn't taste much burley, smoky from the latakia, but I also taste a sour note. I'm not sure where that comes from. A little sour note is ok but not a... Read Mores a primary flavor for me. If you like mild, sweet, smoky and sour then you should try this. Read Less
