The name says it all, a superior mild English

Although there are times when I crave a strong English blend, many times I want something milder and this tobacco is my present favorite. It definitely has the proper name, as that is exactly what it is. There is a bit of a sweet note from the Cavendish and Golden VA, while the burley provides body. The Latakia is very far in the background, you have to look for it to taste it. It smokes well in a variety of pipes: I have a Tinsky Christmas pipe that works especially well with it.

     This tobacco comes with a medium moisture content and the burn and lighting are both slightly better than average. I haven't tried drying any, that might make it score higher in this regard.

     Boswell tobaccos are very reasonable in regard to price. J.M. has made an effort to keep both his tobaccos and pipes affordable for the average person.

     Scores for Mild English: taste-16 out of 20; lighting and burn- 7 out of 10; value- 8 of 10. 31 points nets Mild English a *** score.
