Old Dublin is a very solid English with a lot of flavor. I like it a lot, but I didn't at first. Also, I never realized there was black Cavendish in it until I saw the description again here. After smoking it more, I realized it's there—rather than s... Read Moretanding out, the B.C. flavor blends into the mix. Old Dublin was one of the first Englishes I ever tried, though at first impression, I didn't enjoy it much. When I got some from a friend that'd been aged for a five years, it completely blew me away. After that was gone, I went back to the
batch I bought—which was only 3-4 months old—and it had already mellowed out considerably. Beginners take note – Latakia mellows-out considerably just a few days after the seal is popped, and even more so once it's given some time to cellar in a jar. Just a few months can change a blend with considerable Latakia content like this one for the better—from harsh to mild and creamy in a rather short time. So if you're initially turned-off by it, give it a chance! If you're looking into Englishes, this is one good blend to try. Dry it out well and give it a go! Read Less
Easily one of my go to blends for now and the foreseeable future. The Latakia and orientals work in perfect harmony. The sweet basma on the retrohale is a thing of sublime beauty.

This stuff, I'd say, is a cross between a Balkan and an English... if that makes any sense. Whatever, it's academic.

I think this is an excellent blend and many find it exceptional.
The way the other tobaccos melded with the Cyprian Latakia created a really tasty, unique English unlike any I've tried before & I liked the results. I've never been a big Latakia fan like some who'd smoke nothing else but I did take a liking to this. It was a welcome change from most of the "ordinary" flavors of other English blends containing the Latakia leaf. Read Less

This blend is a work of art.

Read Morejoin my reigning favourite, G.L. Pease's Blackpoint. I was laughing out loud to myself with pleasure while smoking this blend.
I found this blend to be the manifestation of all that I have discovered and wanted: a cool, bite-less, flavourful, mouthful culminating in the columns of smoke emanating skyward. Perfect balance of all components.
I have never bought a pound of tobacco (sadly, I smoke irregularly maybe 3-4 times a week), but this one has got my name on a 16 oz. bag in the near future.
If you are interested in breaking into English blends, but do not know where to start, try this. If you are an old hand with English blends and have not yet put this into your rotation, give it a try. I can hardly wait to put some of this aside for aging.
Cheers to all and good smoking! Read Less

As far as English blends go this is not my absolute favorite. However, this is a very well-rounded blend that is definitely in my "must-haves" list. Smoky, musty, reminiscent of a campfire from my scouting days. Well done, Peterson.
