English Bliss
WELL THEN - I am writing upon completion of a wonderful bowl of this wonderful tobacco First the mechanics. Pipe used: My virgin Don Warren morta I picked up at the Chicago pipe show this year. (Didn't want any ghost flavors to corrupt my impressions) I knew I was going to reserve this pipe for non-aero's. THIS is the tobacco I will now be using to season this fabulous new pipe. Preparation: Nice cake, perfect humidity right after rubbing, springy & packs well. Did not rub out hard mostly just spread out the ribbons, flakes, etc. as I did not want to powder too finely or bruise the blend. (Reserve any too small bits for top kindling) Upon first light I got a very creamy & full amount of smoke. Incense was right there, not overpowering, just present. Burns well, clean, & dry all the way down. Absolutely no gurgle or bite no matter how hard I greedily puffed (started out sipping,couldn't contain myself) Latakia definitely there, again not overpowering NOT a Lat bomb. I Paired with a cold double shot espresso with cream, no flavoring or sugar, which was quite complimentary. The aged Virginia's bright grassy & sweet & added just the right balance to the blend. Slight pepper taste on the tongue - NOT bite - there was no bite - slight pepper as in a nice new York strip with peppercorn crust. (Mmm this would be perfect after THAT meal) The Oriental's definitely add THAT floral note to the mélange could even think sandalwood. Not sure what that "Top Note" is but it definitely is Old School & just right. Nic kick is balanced, a slight heady feel & perfect cheek tingle. Smoked dry to the bottom, just fine ash no dottle and pipe cleaner came away clean of impurities, just ash. I could go on forever suffice to say THIS is the English blend I remember from my youth (no knock on my beloved White Knight Russ) This is a contemplative smoke perfect for that good book or porch stargazing. Can't wait to try in my dear old LARGE gourd calabash for a LOOONG smoke.

This was an awesome smoke
The only thing I have to compare this to is Bengal Slices which I thought were good, but this beats BS by a nose. The aged Virginia's added just an extra hint of sweetness this was an awesome smoke!

As good as the tinned, slightly more mellow
A special trear for sure! Just like its brother the tinned version except the latakia has mellowed slightly. Its still there but is better harmonized with the other leaves.

crumble cake strong
if you like heavy latakia this is for you, my preference is a bit less but this is a nice crumble cake and might be diluted by the skillful blender

“Special” by name only
Look, this isn’t “bad” tobacco. The problem is, there really isn’t anything special about it. Fusiliers ration is a fine tobacco in its own right. So is it’s insirpation, Bengal Slices, and the tobacco superior to them both in my opinion, Plum Pudding. When you slap “special reserve” on anything, it better not only be better than its parent, but markedly better. This is neither, and I really hoped otherwise.

Can’t be beat
This is my favorite H&H, and this batch kicks it up a notch. Really deep without harshness, foresty aromas, and a plumminess that’s delightful.

Really great. I have gotten away from latakia blends for a long time, but this really brought me back. Not the regular go to, but delivers what you have missed. Not overpowering, but sort of insense like they said. Only thing I can say is Delicious

A discount that will turn heads??? I have never tried this and for $5 an ounce or probably never will. That is high as a giraffe's crotch.
