Fully satisfied
A totally satisfying smoke!. Rich and smokey, but it never got harsh or bitter. There are no sharp edges in the taste - it's always smooth and deep. Fairly copius amounts of smoke, and it burned super-cool. Was able to smoke it at a steady pace, didn't need to be sipped, seemed to liven up in richness with a stronger draw and steady cadence. It never came close to biting. I just sat on the back porch before bed with my dog, puffing and marveling at the total enjoyment I was getting from it, barely moving, just loving each moment. It's Latakia forward, I've seen it referred to as a Lat bomb, but it's so much more than that. The taste would change from time to time as the bowl worked down through the Virginias and Orientals, not major shifts, just an 'oh, cool, that's a bit different' moment in a way that kept drawing me into the smoke more and more. Like I said, a totally satisfying and rich-feeling smoke, a completely pleasant experience, no bad behaviors, no rough edges, always smooth.

Top Notch!
If you're into the smokey, campfire goodness that is Latakia, you will like this one. Out of all the Captain Earles blends I've tried, stimulus package is easily my favorite. Lots of bold flavor, and very smooth. It smokes cool and dry and leaves nothing but a fine white ash in the bottom of my bowl. The Latakia is very pronounced, but the orientals and Virginia's are still very present. This is good stuff and has made it to the top of my "gotta have it in the cellar" list.

Somewhat new to English blends, I'll definitely order this in the future
When I first opened the tin I described the smell to a friend as being "Like a campfire projectile vomited into a leather bag full of fresh cash.." The closed tin has been in a small tupperware container for the few weeks it's been open as I've ripped off enough at a time but the smell has leveled out, you could say. Not so pungent but still has what could maybe be described as a slightly tart smell that is also present in the flavor behind the smokiness and leathery notes. The plug is fairly moist and requires drying to be able to get through the last third of the bowl without a fight, and it tears apart and breaks up easily. This is the stuff that will make you go out and buy a cob or basket pipe so you don't have to worry about whether or not it's a myth a pipe should be used only once per day. As soon as a bowl fizzles to an end the flavor lingering on my tongue and breath calls for another, there's something unique about it I can't place my finger on. I was reluctant to leave a review having limited experiences with English blends but have enough experience with cigars to know when something new will become something kept.

Bold, yet smooth.
I was shockingly and happily surprised by the bold flavor. It is a pure pleasure that is excellent in its smooth, yet intense robust flavor.

Pretty good
This is the second of the Captain Earle's series I've tried, the first being Ten Russians. As with most blends, it seems to get better with ample drying time. Once I'd managed to dial in the humidity, it began to unfold and reveal itself. Very nice smoke with good body and a creamy taste. The Latakia was noticeable but did not hijack the flavor. The Virginias were able to impart a slight sweetness and balanced well with the other tobaccos. It was a hearty blend with a full body but not too harsh. I was sad to see the tin empty and enjoyed it quite a bit. It was similar to Ten Russians though I would rate TR just a tad higher in preference. Noticeable nicotine but not too excessive. Recommended. Dry it well and don't rush it.
