For Sweet English, the folks at C&D start with a traditional American Cavendish base of Virginias, Burleys and black Cavendish, add a dash of Latakia, and finish it with a specially formulated flavor mixture of caramel and vanilla.
The first few bowls I liked it, but after smoking my trial ounce I was not a fan. I has a strange sweet cream smell to me and only a slight bit of the good smokey incense of a good English blend. This is a confused blend in my book. Won't buy agai... Read Moren. Read Less
Was looking for something a sweet and smoky. This was a little thin on both counts. Overall it was lacking on both aspects IMHO. I'll stick to my custom blend of Sutliff Black Cordial and Dunhill Apertif.
I bought a few ounces of this blend on spec during the recent C&D Bulk sale. Wasn't sure what to expect from it, and when it arrived, I feared I may have chosen poorly as the caramel tin note was rather forward of the tobacco scents. However, all... Read More such concerns vanished with the first light. Sweet English is a nicely balance, though mild, American English blend. There is just enough Latakia in there to add a taste of wood smoke, and the caramel/vanilla topping is a soft whisper instead of the raging bellow popular with most aromatic tobaccos.
Think Squadron Leader with a touch of round sweetness and you'll get the idea.
Pleasant room note and lights/burns well. No bite either.
Could be an all-day Summer or indoor smoke, though I suspect it won't stand up as well cold weather.
Rated 4 stars. With a bit more Latakia, this could be a 5-star blend for me. Read Less

Room note is strong with vanilla in the background.
No bite.Burns a bit faster than usual.

Upon returning to the pipe after some years, I've been building a rotation. (Something I never had when i just bought whatever.)

It's sweet alright, maybe too sweet, I can't decide. After smoking a few ounces, I liked it. It's different, but not in a bad way.
The aroma was off putting at first, reminded me of maple syrup. But the smoke was quite enjoyable. I'd say worth tryi... Read Moreng. Read Less
