Kasimir denotes status as several Polish kings and prominent military leaders have borne the name. This extraordinary English Mixture of Smoky Latakia, Rich Orientals, Golden Virginias and Burley could not be more aptly named.
Room Note: Pleasant
The tin note was of the smoky Latakia. The blend's moisture was good to go right from the tin. On the charring light the smokiness of Latakia was right there. On the true light the spiciness of the Orientals joined in. About a third of the way into the bowl the sweet hay flavor of the Virginias was apparent, and a short time after that the faint nuttiness of Burley jumped in to the mix. Kasimir burned cool and all the way to the bottom of the bowl leaving only light gray ashes. The Latakia in Kasimir in not over powering but is noticeable. This may replace Blend No. 5 as my favorite English.
