Samuel Gawith - Perfection Mixture 50g
Fell Flat
I had very high expectations for this light English blend but to me it flopped. As with most Sammy G. Blends the tobacco condition out of the tin reminded me of a drowned rat. It took hours to dry this out to the point that i thought it would be OK to jar-up. The tobacco form that point would take an additional 10 minuets before stuffing into your pipe. The tobacco did behave well in the pipe with minimal relights but just lacked in flavor that was even remotely enjoyable to me. Hope this helps.

Samuel Gawith - Skiff Mixture 50g
Its OK
This is a very good English blend that is mellow with Superb Latakia. I would recommend this blend to anyone that is looking to try a true English Masterpiece. also this blend is a great behaving in the pipe.

G. L. Pease - Abingdon 2oz
Great English
This blend is to me an all day English blend. This is a totally balanced tobacco that will appeal to the latakia lover and the English purest. This blend is a ribbon cut and the moisture content was smoke ready out of the tin. To me the Virginia and oriental tobacco takes front seat with the latakia not ruling the party. i hope this explanation helps in the pipe smoking endeavors.

Rattray's - Black Mallory 50g
Good Crossover Blend
This is to me a sweet English blend "Scottish" the flavor profile is nice and for a crossover blend type its great. However i am not a fan due to the lack of latakia power that it has. This to me would be a good blend for someone to try that is in the process from making the switch from Aero's to English blends. Hope this helps.

G. L. Pease - Westminster 2oz
Best Ribbon cut English
This blend does't get the hype that say Gaslight or quiet nights get but make no mistake this is a absolutely superb all day English with an attitude.

G. L. Pease - Quiet Nights 2oz
Excellent Smoky Goodness
This is one of my favorite broken flakes it in my opinion one of the most complex English blends you can buy . if you desire to smoke it fast you will get a completely different experience if you smoke it slow. make this part of you rotation today.

G. L. Pease - Maltese Falcon 2oz
A solid English Blend
This is a solid English blend but as others have said i do not see what the hype was about. but do not get me wrong this is a solid blend.

G. L. Pease - Gaslight 2oz

Cornell & Diehl - Mississippi Mud 2oz
If you like Perique This Is For You
This is a very enjoyable blend it packs a lot of pepper form the Perique but is balanced with the Latakia and Black Cavendish all in all a good after dinner smoke.

Cornell & Diehl - Epiphany 2oz
This blend is not for me
as stated above this blend is not for me the Burley in my opinion over powers the blend and the Latakia just takes a back seat.

Balkan Sasieni - Balkan Sasieni 50g
