A traditional English blend of Virginia, Turkish and latakia tobaccos, smoothed by the addition of fine American burley. A lovely clean smoke.

Very nice clean smoke. Taste was great and will purchase it again. Will try with my brier and edit if necessary but I really enjoyed it first time.

In my briers I didn't get as great a smoke but still good.

Mild to Medium Extremely Mild Full Very Pleasant

This blend really jumped at me.

It had a very nice smell in the shop's jar and simply had to buy some. I kept coming back to this jar, just to enjoy it.

It takes some effort to light (even after drying out) and does tend to die in the bowl. The taste however stays the same from the first puff to the last final (re-lit) draw. the Latakia is not overwhelming, like a pure Latakia tends to be, and has a very pleasant room note.

This is not an everyday, all day smoke but does wonders as a last smoke before bed or whilst reading the Sunday paper.

Medium to Strong None Detected Full Pleasant to Tolerable

This blend has an immediate and very distinct Latakia smell and taste; clearly more than the 10% - 15% Latakia which is generally used in blends. A slight nuttiness also comes through due to the Burley. The Turkish mix does tone down the Latakia to a more presentable smoking experience. Many smokers experience straight Latakia as "too much, too harsh". Tolerable room note but for the Tobacco lovers, "real tobacco" hangs in the air.

Another awesome blend from Oom Colin Wesley. No 55 is mild with subtle sweetness that lingers. Tobacco lights ok but I suggest drying out first. I enjoyed this in my mini briar (10 minute pipe) with Nording Keystones. Smooth dry smoke. I highly recommend this blend.
