I've tried lots of English style blends and this Artisan's Blend stands out above most others. Has a slightly sweet/sour note in the background that is distinctive and attractive. An excellent pipe tobacco. In my opinion it is better than the curr... Read More

I wish I could give this 6 stars. Unbelievably smooth and enjoyable. I have tried so many blends since taking up this hobby and can honestly say this so far is my favorite. Perfect moisture level, even burn to white ash. I have to say that I really g... Read More

I can't even imagine how incredible this must have been when it had syrian latakia in it, it's incredible now and that would have just made it more complex and deep. This stuff is so complex and it changes throughout the bowl. So many layers of flavo... Read More

Best nuanced English

Product: Ashton Artisan's Blend 50g
I have tried other English blends although I keep coming back to AB because of the nuanced flavour. This smoke has a very round oily mouth feel with a mellow smoke flavour I have burned it fast with no tongue bite haven't wanted DHN after I sampled ... Read More

This English was recommended to me by an Iwan Ries employee while I was visiting the store. If you take note of the Syrian latakia, it should strike you as a rarity. Personally, I enjoy Cyprian latakia, so I didn't necessarily need a different lataki... Read More

This review is based on the Syrian Latakia variety sampled in 2010 & will update should I opt to try the Cyprian variety. After lighting up this Latakia blend for the first time I thought... not as bad as I was expecting & I loved the salty f... Read More

I have been a pipe smoker for 52 years and this is one of the very best English blends I have ever smoked. Absolutely superior.
Not just for Artisans!

Artisan's Blend is a tobacco blend that proclaims it is “for the experienced pipe smoker”. I agree with that statement to a point. I think to get the most out of it, it would help to be, but it is not necessary. This is probably not one I'd hand to a... Read More

I was gifted a tin and what a fantastic friend to have given it to me. Nice smokey Latakia, lovely spice from the Orientals, and a kiss of Virginia. A smooth, well balanced, full English. Very impressed.

Let me start by saying over 90 percent of my cellar is English tobbaco, with 75 percent of the balkan variety, my favorite by far. This blend shares both flavors, and nuances of my favorite balkan, and English crossovers that all others can't do at t... Read More

This tobacco is most generally my afternoon to evening smoke. On a rainy day or a particularly lazy day it's my all day smoke. It has a smooth, rich, leathery taste and just a touch of spiciness. To me the spiciness is almost like fresh ground black ... Read More

Make no mistake, this is a high quality English in the Nightcap vein. It is just not my style. For those that enjoy heavier English blends, it is probably a 5.

A tobacco worthy of its name. A true artisan work. When you first open the tin, you are cordially welcomed by an aroma of Syrian Latakia and orientals.. Followed by a very dark well cut chunks of tobacco. The moisture content is acceptable, though a ... Read More

Wonderful full English tobacco mixture with sweet smokey Syrian Latakia. If only Ashton's other tobaccos were as good as this...
Very good English

Not overly strong, not a "Latakia Bomb", very creamy to my taste, but definitely in the English tradition. I tried this on a whim based on some discussion online and I think this is going to become one of my go to blends. Its a good smoke.
Superb!!

When I purchased my Ashton pipe, I decided to try Ashton's "Artisan's Blend." What a winning combination! But then again, this smooth, fine-tasting tobacco will grace the chamber of any pipe! Give it a try!

Artisan's Blend is a treat for English smokers. Strong in latakia and a rich, creamy smoke. I didn't get as much of the perique as I expected, but that is more than made up for in latakia content. I highly recommend this blend to any English fan

This is a good english blend. It is complex but flavorful. Medium strength, good aroma. It is similar to Nightcap but I actually thought this had a better flavor. Sweet, spicy, smoky characteristics.

Smokes like the old Dunhill Standard Mixture. That's a big compliment. That Dunhill standard was the standard in my book before they start making it outside of England. This stuff is addictive: definitely classic English, Latakia based mated with the... Read More
