Newminster: No.306 English Orient

Product Number: 005-528-0019

No.306, English Orient, is a classic English mixture from Newminster, developed from flue-cured African Virginias, Black Cavendish, Mexican Burleys and Cyprus Latakia. Then, on top of these fantastic tobaccos, a spicy Turkish Samsun grown on the Black Sea coast is added, just to give the final touch of excellence. This non-aromatic blend produces an astonishing array of refined flavors ranging in strength.

This is very good tobacco. I cut it 1/2 star as it is a little hard to get lit. Once you get that out of the way it is smooth sailing.
Wonderful "committee" blend

There is plenty of room in the tobacco world for an English blend that insists on allowing all its components equal time. "Will the gentleman from Latakia kindly take his seat?" Newminster English Orient has a wonderfully round taste, wher... Read More

Rather new at the pipe. Started with aromatics and have found the English blends to be my go to. First bowl and I love it. I think this will be a great all day smoke. It is smooth and almost has a sweetness to it. Definitely will be ordering more of ... Read More

Product: Newminster No.306 English Orient Bulk
The bag note is a bit muted, but don't let that fool you. A bit moist, packs well though. The smoke is full and it burns cool, really cool once it gets going. No problem keeping the burn going. It took the first third of the bowl before it settle... Read More

Smooth as silk. This is a very refined blend. No one component or flavor overpowers, which is unique in itself, but creates an ensemble. Ina sense, it's own flavor. Luscious, smooth and balanced. Great no bite, all-day smoke. Burns cool and left only... Read More

Interesting mixture. Think of a mild english, with a nutt/earthy flavor and slightly sweet on the draw.

Too dry, harsh

Product: Newminster No.306 English Orient Bulk
Not a fan. I like English blends but this one adds far too much dryness resulting in a bitter, harsh smoke.
Smooth and light

Is smooth and light, almost sweet. Very plaseant, very nice, but not a great tobacco, is also not bad, I feel that he lacked some strength to Latakia ...
Very smooth, not bad

Well, this isn't a very "Englishy" tobacco, straying pretty wide from the path of traditional Englishes, but that's not to say it's a bad thing. Seems to be one of those "kitchen sink" blends, with a little of everything thrown in... Read More

Product: Newminster No.306 English Orient Bulk
This has become one of my favorites. Great taste, No bite. Burns and packs good, no goop in bowl. Fine Lat flavor without being over board, other tobaccos come through. This one is very good for an all day smoke. I'm glade I bought 8oz, I will re... Read More

I had a pipe maker throw in a small sample of this stuff along with a pipe I bought from him and I was instantly hooked. This isn't a traditional English blend but that's alright with me. 😉 The addition of the Cavendish and Turkish tobaccos gives th... Read More

This was my first sucessful delivery. Perfectly sealed. During opening the bag I smelt a beautiful scent. The taste was pleasurable but after a couple weeks, it was best thought to be in rotation. Following several constant puffs throughout the day, ... Read More

Very enjoyable and sure to be added to my regular rotation. I feel that this blend is very smooth, but would benefit greatly from a little cellaring. I will definitely buy this blend again and set some back to age and mature.
A delightful discovery!

This is a very enjoyable smoke. The flavours come in chunks, rather than in a well blended way. I like that though! This is a robust product - each flavour that comes through has real pedigree. A classy product, I'll come back to it from time to time... Read More
Smooth and Creamy

Product: Newminster No.306 English Orient Bulk
This is one of my "go to" English blends. Even though, by definition, an "English" blend is Virginias and Latakia only, I feel the addition of Burleys and Cavendish makes this blend more complex and flavorful. The addition of Turkish Samsun makes it ... Read More

A great tobacco, I love mixing English with Cavendish, and that touch of Turkish gives it a very special addition to a very competitive price.
