Another Good Mild English

Upon opening the tin, I see  there are large light brown peices mixed with varying sized smaller, darker brown chunks of tobacco.  It feels reasonably dry and clean not sticky, like it's virtually ready to smoke, without having to dry it. There is a subtle fruity aroma with a hint of Latakia hovering in the background.

I did let it dry just a few minutes before packing a bowl. It packed very easily in the medium pot shaped pipe I had chosen to try it in. A test draw gave just a hint of the fruity aroma in taste. The char light also rendered just a touch of latakia, combined with the fruit.  The true light remained about the same and kept burning from then right on through to the bottom of the bowl. It burned completely to a fine gray ash. About a third of the way down I started getting a little pepper from the Perique, but certainly not overpowering. And it seemd that about two thirds down the latakia started fading. I consider this a medium strenghth tobacco, with a very good tobacco flavor.

This is one of the few tobaccos that I have been able to smoke the whole bowl, without haveing to relight a few times. Then again maybe I was just enjoying it enough to pay that much attention. It's the second mild englsh blend I have tried of the Suttliff Private Stock line, the first being "Man's Best Friend", and I am really liking them both.

I wish I could say more about the room note, but as you know it's hard to tell when you're the one smoking. I can say the significant other didn't seem to mind it, so it can't be bad or I would have been givin the "look". I would certainly recomend this to anyone who likes Walnut, as I do, I think it has a little more actual tobacco flavor. It's on my list as a tobacco I would like to keep on hand, and I will be including a tub on my next order.
