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