This is a very enjoyable tobacco for fans of a good quality English blend with some backbone. On lighting, I detected the fruitiness of the Perique along with the smokiness of the Latakia, which is not overwhelming, but very smooth and balanced. This... Read More is an amazing blend for a bulk blend--I can't believe the quality, and I love the cut. Much chunkier than, say 965, and as a result smokes much more slowly and much more flavorful. To me, it is most similar to H&H Armada, but the Burley in this one gives it slightly more N and a little more firmness in taste. I'm very taken with this one--most highly recommended!

I have to re-write my review. When I first tried this blend, I was expecting a lot of latakia. As I couldn't find as much latakia as I expected, gave it 3 stars. But now, already aware that it is not so heavy on the lataia, I enjoyed it much more. It... Read More is actually a very good English! One more star! Read Less
