Named after a local pipe-smoker, who couldn't find his regular tobacco, asked Samuel Gawith to make up a blend - his reaction to the new mixture- PERFECTION!! A combination of Virginias, Latakias and Turkish has been touched by the subtle flavor of Vanilla.

I have really taking a liking to the topped/cased English tobaccos and this is no exception. The vanilla accents the tobacco nicely but is subtle. Like most SG blends, it requires some drying time.

I had very high expectations for this light English blend but to me it flopped. As with most Sammy G. Blends the tobacco condition out of the tin reminded me of a drowned rat. It took hours to dry this out to the point that i thought it would be OK t... Read Moreo jar-up. The tobacco form that point would take an additional 10 minuets before stuffing into your pipe. The tobacco did behave well in the pipe with minimal relights but just lacked in flavor that was even remotely enjoyable to me. Hope this helps. Read Less
Bought this because my beloved Cabbies mixture was out of stock and wanted to try something new. I am a fan of English blends and this was a blind buy.
This is a really good English, the vanilla is so slight it's a hint and it manages to make the b... Read Morelend more mellowed out, or rather more "rounded" with a ghost of sweetness.
I really like it, I think I will be adding this to my rotation and start looking at other Gawith blends. If you are a fan of English blends, give this a try, it's worth it. Read Less

I had never had, or thought of, vanilla and English, but it is excellent. I have since added vanillas to my English to try and replicate the mix (with a slightly heavier vanilla essence) but to no avail.
As mentioned below, the vanilla is extreme... Read Morely subtle - like, painfully subtle. You want more but a slight tease is all you get. Still a great blend. Read Less
The vanilla in this blend is incredibly subtle; it doesn't add flavour so much as it rounds out the smoke. It has classic creamy, herbal, leathery oriental/latakia flavours, with medium strength. I think it's a very nice all-day blend.
Perfection is a good quality tobacco but too much on the mild side for me. If you are a Latakia lover then you will feel the lack of it in this mixture. Very plain and somehow boring at the end of the bowl.
