A blend of Burleys and a little Latakia. Perfect for those thoughtful moments.

It was golden oldie's night at our most recent pipe club meeting. Everyone was supposed to bring a blend from the past that they enjoyed to share. How Conan Doyle got in the mix I do not know. One of the club members brought it in a baggie (don't know if this one was tinned or not), and it was crunch dry; just the way I like my tobacco. So, while others were sucking on Revelation, Amphora Red, Captain Black White and Lane's 1Q, I grabbed that pouch of Conan. Latakia was evident immediately and the Virginia was a background player and nipped the tongue whenever I puffed with any degree of cadence that cut the 10-second per puff mark. Not a lot of depth to the Latakia and the Virginia taste was a little on the stringy side. If Sir Conan puffed on this stuff, then I totally understand the Persian Slipper thing with Sherlock.

This is a very interesting and enjoyable blend. It is a ribbon cut, only somewhat moist in the bag. It is mostly burley but perhaps one third lightly topped cavendish of a somewhat chocolate flavor. There is just enough Latakia in here to taste.

It is fairly consistent, with the flavor of the burley, the topping, and the Latakia managing to come through simultaneously thoughout the bowl.

It in unlike any other pipe tobacco I have tried. The effect, although not the taste, is somewhat like Frog Morton, although this tobacco is quite a bit stronger than the Frog. Lots of creamy smoke. I'm enjoying this bag a little at a time and will certainly buy more.

Worth a try.
