An updated blend with a finer cut for easier handling. Generous portions of Latakia are perfectly balanced with Oriental and Virginia tobaccos. The aroma is rich and the smoke is soft and gentle.

Recommended if you like the taste of McClelland Virginias. Not recommended if you do not like this flavor. It is a nice Medium English but I am not a big fan of Ketchup. You could do worse or better. 2.5 stars.

A pleasant, if lightweight, blend of virginia, oriental and latakia tobaccos. Very well behaved in the pipe and suitable for all day smoking. Could be compared to Rattray No 7. And yes, for the quality, it is inexpensive.

My daughter was quite young when she first saw the sepia insert in the bag. She took one look at the drawing in the center and wanted to know if it was a portrait of Jane Austen!

This is a mild to medium English blend. Georgetown Tobacco's house blends are unique and very high-quality. The ribbon cut is luxurious and packs well. Their house blends are fantastic, but sell at bulk/house prices - nearly half as much as comparable tinned "name brand" blends.

I believe Persuasion is like their Councilman blend, but with a higher amount of Latakia. It has some lemony citrus, a little sweetness, but with the Latakia more forward instead of way in the background.

I wouldn't say this is a copy of Dunhill 965 by any means, but it reminds me of that blend with a little more citrus. It is similar to Dunhill 965 in the balance level of Latakia. I like my English blends more subdued that way, with the orientals more pronounced.
