So, I think I bought this by mistake. I was actually trying to get a tin of waterloo, but I must have ordered 34th. I was attracted to F&T because...well, Bertrand Russell. I mean Tolkein sold me on Capstan (yes, I realize its not the same blend)... Read More, so I figured why not let another famed historical giant dictate some words of wisdom about quality leaf. Russell didn't smoke 34th, as far as I know or waterloo, but its the end of Fall and I'm enjoying english blends currently. So, I got an english!
Upon first opening I was a bit concerned. I love sweet tobaccos, but this smelled near aromatic sweet and I'm not much of an aromatic guy. However, I figured I might as well give it a go. It takes a bit to get that first light going strong, but once you do it powers through to the end. Also, the "ribbon" cut is pretty darn chunky, but it is what it is. It took me about two bowls to really like this blend--and I do! I like it a lot! It is sweet, wonderfully sweet, but there is also some nice smokiness from the latakia. It is most certainly an english style mixture. There is some virginia grassiness in there as well, and the cavendish just adds some body and sweetness. No harshness, no bite. Just a really pleasant sweet smokiness. It's not super complex, just an all day good light english. Also, the room note is very pleasant, as well. No complaints from the missus. I highly recommend this smoke if you're just looking for a nice friendly smoke, or looking to cross over from aromatics into englishes. I actually don't know if I've smoked much else since it arrived in the mail. Give it a go! Read Less
I was introduced to Fribourg & Treyer first through their snuff which is simply amazing. That subtle sensibility absolutely carries over to 34th mixture. It seems about perfectly balanced to my palate. Second half of the pipe is excellent and I am ... Read Moreleft with a perfectly burned ash two hours later. Very subtle fragrance for those that appreciate that kind of complexity. Read Less
