This G.H. VA is very finely cut,came at a perfect humidity for jarring.I like the dark rich VA and in this one..The Lakeland essence is more subdued,but evident through the entire bowl..the nic hit is just below medium to me. This is a good blend for... Read More those who want to try the Lakeland effect and how it works with quality tobaccos.This is a good one to age for effect as it sits stored away. Read Less
Just off the back deck after another bowl of this excellent blend. First things first. The constituent tobaccos are: Indian dark air-cured tobacco (35%), Combined with 27% dark-fired leaf and only 38% flue-cured Virginias. I get very little to nothin... Read Moreg of anything Lakeland in terms of scenting. I detected the merest smidgen of cocoa. All reviewers thus far are pretty much spread across the board in these regards. In terms of cut...I disagree with most others. My recent bag is definitely not shag. In fact it is a fairly heavy ribbon. It came moist, very packable and eager to light and burn. No bite. My constant sipping didn’t overheat it or change the flavors which are rich and do indeed show cigar notes from time to time. This is touted as being the base blend for other GH items...no surprise. It’s rich enough that even by adding Lakeland scenting the base tobacco would shine through...a hallmark of GH scented Lakelands. Yes, this IS under the radar - but shouldn’t be. Less smoky than Dark Birds Eye it has significant flavor, good manners and a decent hit of N. It should be far more popular. Highly recommend to seasoned puffers of Brit blends especially. Read Less
I’m really surprised that no one else has rated this tobacco as of yet. Before getting into the taste and aroma, the shag blends from G&H have been a real treat to smoke. I’m still fairly new to them, but have already classified them as favorites... Read More due to their uniqueness and rich tastes. Kendal #7 is another unique blend from G&H. I received mine on the dry side, but still fresh. The tobacco burns exceptionally well. I had to tame the puffing because although this is a virginia-based tobacco, I really thought it contained more burley. If you puff too quickly, it will bite. The lakeland essence is very faint here, which make it an pleasant tobacco. It’s also quite rich, so again, puff slowly. Read Less
