For those who prefer lighter latakia blends like Dunhill's Early Morning Pipe, Murray's 1810 Belfast will be a welcome change of pace. Bright flue-cured tobaccos are blended with a bit of soft Burley, a lightly-sweet, Virginia-based black cavendish and Cyprian latakia to create a gently smoky tobacco that can be enjoyed at any time of day.

Mild Extremely Mild Mild to Medium Pleasant

The various Virginias are mostly grassy with citrus, and minor dark fruit and earth notes, and forms the base for the other components. The burleys are molasses and nutty sweet as a noticeable supporting player. The vanilla from the black cavendish provides a smooth and creamy undertone to the experience. The smoky, woody sweet Cyprian latakia is a team player that plays nearly at the same level of the burleys, though at times, just a mite less so. There is a slight sweetness from a topping of some kind, though it’s not distracting. The nic-hit is mild. Burns at a moderate pace, cool and clean with a smooth, consistent flavor from top to bottom. Requires few relights, and leaves little moisture in the bowl. Easily burns to ash. An all day semi-sweet American English that could be an entry level blend for those interested in trying this genre, as well as a change of pace from heavier blends.

Mild Very Mild Mild to Medium Pleasant

In the first half I get the nutty Burley as an equal partner to the smoky Lat. The Black Cav brings a nice sugary sweetness. I think most of that sweetness is an addition. The Virginias add a little sweet hay. In the second half the smokiness of the Lat recedes a bit and is replaced by a nice toasty note from the Black Cav. Along with the Burley this provides a flavor of toasted nuts. Make that sweet toasted nuts as the sweetness from the first half remains throughout the bowl. There's still a little smoky hay in the background. It's a nice light American English with some complexity. I have to say though that there are cheaper Am/Eng blends that come in a pouch that I prefer over this one. Even so, this is a nice smoke.

Mild in body. Mild to medium in taste. Added sweetness is very mild. Burns very well.
