S.G. Commonwealth Mixture

Picked up a couple oz of this in a trade. I've been wanting to try it for a while but it wasn't high on the list.

Quite moist right out of the jar. I should have let it dry a bit more than 45 minutes in my pipe but my schedule has it's own demands! It smells like lots of latakia.

It is lots of latakia! This is a no nonsense, no frills english. Apparently 50/50 va/lat. The virginias can be tasted in the background but the latakia is really the big player. This blend is farily one-dimensional. But if you're looking for an english you don't have to think about but can enjoy the latakia without it being too overbearing, this is the one.

It was.....well, let's just say it was.

Re: S.G. Commonwealth Mixture

Thanks for the review of Commonwealth Mixture. That is something on my list to try, I'm interested in the 50/50 lat mixture. Still, I wasn't in a huge hurry, quite a few other things were already above it on the list. With your lukewarm review, it is pretty much where it was- I want to try it, but not right now. Maybe if I ever see it on the shelf of a local B&M that will be when I'll pick it up, or as part of a larger online order sometime in the next year.

Yeah. That would be my recommendation. It's good and it's high quality tobacco. But just not good enough to push something else down on my list of "to try" tobaccos.

It was.....well, let's just say it was.

Re: S.G. Commonwealth Mixture

That's one I've always wondered about. thanks for the info!

People are more violently opposed to fur than leather because it's safer to harass little old ladies rather than a motorcycle gang.

Re: S.G. Commonwealth Mixture

Thanks for the review, Dave! I have 500gs of this jarred up and I just haven't gotten around to smoking - but I did notice that it was very wet coming out of the box.

I'm a latakia lover and it smells incredible. Like you said, I think it's going to be the perfect smoke for me when I have other things going on and I don't want to concentrate on picking out subtle flavors.

Nice review David. Sounds like it is a lot like Lancers Slices.

Hey, now that I think about it, I got this from you! It's been a wild and wooly week!

Come to think of it, I believe you're correct. I haven't retried the Lancer yet but I think I remember it tasting similar. Can't be too sure since I'd had all those other flavors blowing up my palate!

It was.....well, let's just say it was.
