A traditional mixture of Red Virginia, Turkish, Burley, Latakia, and Perique. Medium strength and perfect introduction to English-style pipe smoking
Room Note: Tolerable
The tin note was of the sweet grass from the Red Virginia and the smokey Latakia. The blend did require some drying time, about 30 minutes. On the charring light the flavor was of sweet and tangy grass from the Red Virginia. On the true light the spiciness of the Orientals came into play. About a quarter of the way into the bowl the peppery flavor of the Perique joined the flavor profile. As far as the Latakia very much a condiment no need to fear the intensity. As stated in the above notes "a perfect introduction to English-style pipe smoking". Medium English burned cool and well. It could easily become your all day smoke.
