This blend just blew me away it is smoky and sweet. I get a hint of Spice in the background lights easy and stay s lit . it does need a little drying befor smoking. I dont now what else to say I found a go to blend.
iv,e smoked english blends for years,but never a crumble cake before. this is very good indeed. it reminds me of night cap minus the strength. i,m wondering what the something extra is.smokey rich and soft on the pallet . pairs with a double double coffee for a morning wake up. then goes all day as well. i hope it never goes away!
Presented as a crumble cake, the tin reveals the rich, smoky aroma of Latakia leaf, with an underlying earthiness not unlike wet leaves.
A "cool" burning blend that takes well to any chamber shape and/or pipe material that does not require too much attention to keep lit.
The flavour profile of this blend is quite interesting, and highlights each of the component tobaccos nicely - at times, offering the rich peaty Latakia flavour, while at others offering up the herbed sweetness of the Oriental leaf. Throughout the bowl, this blend bring a characteristic saltiness which is quite pleasant.
A great "Medium English" or "Strong Balkan"; and definitely a welcome addition to the cellar.
