English latakia blends are my favorite and this is a very nice example. Eng 220 is a more full bodied version of English 110 and what Peretti apparently means by that is the blender had a heavier hand when he mixed in the latakia. The latakia predominates and I would describe the mix as somewhere between a medium and heavy latakia blend. Ultimately the latakia predominated to the point the flavor was not as complex and balanced as English 110 for me.

Still, a great smoke, particularly outdoors.

Now this Peretti English fits my bill. 101 was flat and monotone to me, but 202 is more rich and chewy the way I like my English blends.

Appears to be comprised of the similar base components as 101 with more Latakia spread throughout.

202 has less moisture content than 101, as these both shipped the same day and have been stored the same since their arrival. 202 also has a less bready pouch aroma.

Burn characteristics are also more predictable, and less relights. The Latakia is definitely more center stage. It overrides a lot of the bready notes of 101. If you like your English more full, skip 101 and go for the gusto!
