Planta - Full English
To be honest, I haven't smoked English blends regularly in close to 20 years. Normally, I smoke Virginia/Perique blends, sometimes with the addition of turkish or burley. So while I was waiting for this Full English blend to arrive in the mail, I was braced for the worst. Luckily, I was NOT disappointed. Planta uses first-rate tobaccos, expertly blended, with a rich sumptious quality. Burns very cool and even. However, you get the nuances of the smoke when you sip at a relaxed pace. The Syrian latakia is excellent, and the Java leaf is present just in the right amount, without overpowering. Definitely a keeper!
