John Bull

English blends containing the mysterious and smoky tobacco, Latakia, have long been a mainstay among pipe smokers, and nothing is more emblematic of England than John Bull. A true connoisseur’s delight, this supremely cool and smooth mixture uses mild flue-cured tobaccos, mellow and nutty Burley, a touch of black Cavendish for a subtle sweetness and the star of the blend, magnificent Cyprian Latakia. The result is a well-behaved, all-day mixture that is ultra-flavorful but never overbearing. It’s exceedingly rare to find this kind of premier blend in a pouch, but John Bull is anything but ordinary.

Customer Reviews of “John Bull”
This was my first Latakia blend. The initial smell out of the package made me think that I had purchased some peppered sausage. I'm not sure if this is typical for heavy Latakia blends, but that was what I got from it. Eventually I tried it out and got a wonderful sweet, chocolatey taste with just a hint of spice at the end of the puff. Tasted great with a strong, but nice after taste. Didn't necessarily leave me smelling nice though. The next few times I tried it it was either love it or hate it. I suppose that for my first Latakia tobacco it was good. Would probably buy it again.

Very light english blend. Faint trace of latakia. Not bad for an OTC blend, but a bit too mild for my taste. I mixed it with C&D 412 Billy Budd in a glass mason jar to pick it up a notch or two.

I recently saw this tobacco was buy one pouch, get one free so I figured I would give it a try. Being a relatively new pipe smoker, this was my first English blend. If other English's are as good and as cheap as this one, I will buy nothing but for now on.
BK of Etters, PA
Good blend. Very different spice wise then im use to, but in a good way. Good smoking but strong after smell
AG of saint albans, VT
Mild, mild, mild. Taste and strength. Excellent flavor but I'd like a bit more. Good introduction to the English blends without being overpowered.
JN of Melvin, MI
Great blend, no bite. Ready to smoke out of the pouch. Add a little "blending latakia" to it for the perfect tweak.
AR of Clearwater, SC
I got this in the great sampler I bought here and it easily compares with the other English I have had. The pouch was fresh!
DG of Trenton, NJ
OK...Seriously what is up with this tobacco? I am not a fan of pouch tobaccos to begin with but for some reason picked this up and it seriously impressed me! The smell of the pouch is delicious, the flavor is full and well balanced, the room note is mildly aromatic, the burn is steady and cool and even the freaken ghosting on my pipe was awesome! I still can't believe I am saying this, but I am buying some more...uhmmm, a few more!

I got this tobacco in the IPSD set I picked up and absolutely love it. I have not smoked a great many tobaccos but this one is my favorite to date. I will definitely smoke more of this in the years to come!
