The very essence of the traditional English mixture; rich, elegant, refined, and exquisitely balanced. New World red Virginias are enhanced with a gentle caress of bright leaf, then lavishly seasoned with rich Oriental tobaccos and generous measures of noble Cyprus mountain Latakia. Westminster from G. L. Pease is a satisfying blend, presenting layers of flavor to delight the senses as it develops in the bowl. A perfect every-day English.
Upon offering a friend a bowlful of Westminster, he responded, "Whoa, this tastes like an old red wine that's been in some musty cellar for decades, and it's really, really gamey! Aren't you afraid this will ghost your pipes?" Me: "Hey... Read More, I hadn't thought that! But I sure do hope it does put the ghost in the woods!" Read Less

This is becoming, and is likely to end up, my favorite tobacco. Let it dry out a little and it is exquisite to smoke.
That is so good...

and yea, I must concur with David R, this blend is reliably fulfulling -- ripe and grassy with a hint of olives in its scent, and latheringly leathery in its thick texture, Westminster has never failed me either to be satiating. It's aromatic profile... Read More I suppose, could be called humble -- but most definitely not meek; a few sonorous tones fluidly interweave, and then leave, a mellow-deep aftertaste. I find it singularly odd and pleasing that the word that most comes to mind when I think of this tobacco is, rotund.
Alas, there was a day not too long in the past, when the afternoon concluding in an ethereally gloomy dusk, I puffed on a pipe of Westminster, and it blossomed to a truly exceptional smoke. I mean to say, that despite some meadiocre bowls, do not lose hope (that cheap thing, sweet thing) too soon, as perhaps the moment most suited for that particular leaf has not come.
In response to Mark G: I almost always dry (using the heat of the sun, a pre-warmed oven, heater, or fire) my tobaccos to a moistureless fluffyness (avoiding scorching them to the point when they become crisp and crumbled to dust) for a well-burning smoke. And certainly increasing the surface area available to combustion (that is cutting it up) will increase the ease of burning -- when I roll fags of pipe tobacco (Westminster does not make a good cigarette alone however) I always do this.

I was really disappointed with this blend after reading so many positive reviews. Again it is just my opinion and perhaps others will enjoy it.

Westminster has never failed to produce a good, solid, English smoke for me. I have yet to experience a truly GREAT pipe full of it, but I have never had a less than a pleasing one. To me, that is worth 4 stars; just not a consistently GREAT 5.

Read Morely,burned cool still had same great flavor,but now Instead of fighting to keep It lit,I was able to smoke with utter confidence. Read Less
