Excellent for the smoker who likes a hint of latakia, without the heavy aftertaste.

Notes: Joe Milan is the 'Joe' behind Joe's Blend. The eldest son of Milan Tobacconists' founder J.H. Milan, Joe was a passionate pipe smoker who created his own blend in the 1950's and proudly recommended it to nearly every pipe smoking customer with whom he conversed. As the decades passed, it became more and more difficult to obtain the special tobaccos used to create Joe's Blend, and it finally became impossible to consistently produce the original blend. We decided to reformulate the classic and retain the name in honor of Joe. The "new" Joe's Blend is a very light English that makes an excellent choice for those who wish to dabble in the world of English blends. A small amount of latakia is blended with burleys and Virginias to create a smooth, rich, and slightly sweet smoke with notes of nut, hickory, and just a touch of spice. We'd like to think Joe would have thoroughly enjoyed it, and we certainly hope you do.

So I decided to try an English blend for a change from my usual diet of aromatics. The pouch note is mild and smells of sweet wood and floral accents. The tobacco is fairly moist, but takes a char light readily. The first few puffs yield scents of hickory and grass. I then noticed the Burley and a hint of Latakia which was savory. The Virginias then made their presence known by providing some sweetness toward the end of the bowl. No nicotine was discerned. No tongue bite or harshness.

Overall, a great experience that I highly recommend.

Joe's Blend is a mild to medium English with no bite. I found it to be a pleasant mild Burley smoke with the latakia barely noticeable. A light all day everyday type smoke.
