I wasn't expecting this blend to bowl me over, but it did. I was surprised by how much it reminded me of some of the Captain Earl's blends, particularly Ten Russians. Definitely not as much latakia as Ten Russians but definitely had the overall taste... Read More of it. Will be a part of my regular rotation from here on out. Read Less
Nice Latakia hit, not too much though. Paired quite well with the Turkish and Virginias. I suspect the cav is working to round things out, as I personally think is often the case. Not overly complex, but quite tasty. Easily an all-day. Well done C&D.... Read MoreRead Less
When I lit my first bowl of this tobacco, I thought, "Oh, this is great, but it won't stay this good. Past the half-bowl mark, it'll turn bitter and dreadful." Most really well-balanced English/Scottish mixtures I've tried did fall apart to... Read Morewards the end of the bowl-- even the oft-praised and memorialized Balkan Sobranie and 759. Gawith's Skiff can turn bitter, as will Dunhill's EMP and 965, and various Rattray's.
Not this one. The balance and interplay between the sweetness of the Cavendish and Virginias with the smoky bitterness of the Latakia stays interesting and enjoyable all the way to the bottom of the bowl, and the Orientals accentuate the deliciousness without being too heavy-handed.
After trying it in a couple of pipes to make sure it wasn't a one-off experience, I ordered multiple pounds to put away. This is top-notch stuff! Read Less
I was pleasantly surprised with the taste of this blend. It was really a pleasure to smoke. The latakia was tasteful and not over powering. On first light there was a real sweetness that calmed down without disappearing. Highly recommended.
