Created for Virginia's 400th Anniversary, this unique English blend was named after an equally unique man, Lord Thomas Fairfax. He was the only British Peer ever to reside in Colonial America. A mixture of seven fine tobaccos with just the right amount of Latakia for taste.

The dark and bright Virginias offer some grass and citrus along with a little dark fruit and earth. The smoky, woody sweet Cyprian latakia is a team player. A little woody, earthy, dry Turkish melds well with the woody, very buttery sweet, lightly dry, and moderately spicy Orientals, one of which is Smyrna. I sense a little brown sugar sweet black cavendish. The sweetness level indicates a slight topping of some kind, which I suspect may be rum. The nic-hit is mild. No chance of bite or harshness. Burns cool and clean at a reasonable pace with very consistent sweet and smoky, woody, nuanced flavors from start to finish that translates to the after taste and room notes. Leaves little moisture in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. Can be an all day smoke that almost borders on being a semi-aromatic English blend. Three and a half stars.

I was skeptical. With seven tobaccos, this could have been a mishmash of tobacco stew. But instead it turned out to be masterfully blended. While in many mixtures, the various components take turns soloing, in Lord Fairfax they are all there, clearly discernible, but singing in perfect harmony, producing a lighter tasty blend that smokes easily and beckons for a second bowl.

This is a good English blend. One can definitely taste the variance of different tobaccos, and the latakia hits strong at the beginning of the bowl and evens out as you smoke, leading to a pleasant and cool-burning enjoyment. Good to smoke slowly, allowing every nuance to take its turn up front on your palate.

I was looking for a non flavored Altadis offering. The description of this blend was similar to Walnut (mixture of 7 tobaccos with hint of latakia) so I gave it a try.

The tin aroma is sweet smokey but subtle.

The cut is rough, moisture is perfect, it lights easily and requires only one or two relights. Feels springy and looks colorful. It smells of tobacco, no heavy casing at all.

Initial light brings out the latakia, then settles down to a smooth medium bodied smoke. The latakia is slight, some sweet oriental is present and to me it seems as if there is some perique (or maybe a perique liquid spray flavor) since my mouth gets that perique cottoney dry feeling. To me there was a bit of nose and mouth tingle, quite pleasent. No tongue bite.

Overall pleasent and it has the familiar Altadis english flavor all their english blends have. This is one of the lighter blends.

If you like Walnut, try this.
