First choice Oriental and Virginia tobaccos, for a very aromatic English mixture, but suitable for morning smoke. Contains Latakia and a pinch of burley.

Certainly there is Syrian Latakia in this mixture, and it is really a rare thing at the present time. I’m not sure if there is also Cyprian because I taste some particular nuances not typically Syrian, but I’m very sure Syrian Latakia is well present and dominates the “scene”. In my opinion it could be a sort of mix: both, Syrian and Cyprian Latakia, but the first one is in a leading role. This mixture represents the old English style, but more towards the Balkan line. And it is really good and ideal for English mixtures’ lovers and for Latakia mixtures’ lovers. Only one lack, not a defect but an imperfection: too mild in strength (it could also be a virtue). To understand the difference I like Dunhill’s mixtures for their typical strength, but it’s just a matter of taste. So, in my personal rating system (from 1 to 10) my score is 9 but only three stars because of the strength.

The name would suggest a limited edition, which is not the case, since it's readily available right now (at least here in Italy). The cut is quite strange: short ribbons mixed with large dark pieces. As for the taste, this blend is quite unbalanced toward the orientals, which lead all the time, leaving in the background all the rest, latakia included. The leaf is of good quality and the taste is smooth, if a bit monotonous, so I overall recommend this tobacco, especially to the Oriental lovers.
