    Peter Stokkebye - Proper English

    Now I am piling on. I already had 1 Stokkebye review, so I figured I would put these in as well.

    Description

    Tobacco selection: The most Latakia of any blend we make combined with old belt Virginias and Orientals for a classic blend.
    Tobacco Cut: Loose cut.
    Tobacco Flavor/Aroma: This distinctive English/Balkan blend produces a variety of flavors in a full-bodied and very distinct blend..
    In the tin

    The only thing I can smell is the Latakia. In the other Stokkebye English blends I can smell the orientals but this one is true to its description.

    In the pipe

    It packs and lights easily. It burns fast and burns right to the bottom with very little grey ash. There is a small amount of bite.

    The experience

    Again, true to its description it is heavy on the Latakia. This is the blend that showed me that I can’t handle too much Latakia. If you like English blends with lots of Latakia, this may be for you. For me, it’s not something my tastes can handle right now. I can't even really give it a flavor profile because it was just too much for me to put words to.

    This is an alright smoke, but to me it doesn't display the depth of a more subtle blend. I much prefer 3 oaks syrian.

    I agree with all that has been said about this blend. It's very heavy handed with Latakia and one can taste nothing but.

    As a newbie pipe guy, I bought a half ounce of this to sample and I do not think I will buy more.

    I will keep an eye out for the 3 oaks Syrian. Thanks for the rec!

    +1, Proper English was great right out of the bag and drenched with Latikia

    I love this stuff. Great quality at a bulk price - sure, there are definitely some better English blends out there, and this burns a bit fast, but after smoking a few bowls of it and finding an understanding for the blend, it's my "go to" budget English.
