Straight Up English is exactly what it sounds like: an English blend done the traditional way. No topping. No added flavors. Just red and bright Virginias, a pinch of white Burley, and a healthy dose of Latakia. Straight Up
I bought this because I will always buy a new interesting blend,
especially an English, as a fan of variety. The description made me

Blends that I've loved for years, and will continue to enjoy. But
this particular small batch mixture is very enjoyable, deliciously
addictive, and THE perfect all day blend. I really hope that C&D and
Smokingpipes.com can be convinced to make more than the originally
