A real masterpiece
This is one of the most pleasant English blends available and I am not sure why it is not on every English lover's top 10 list. It has a tangy, dark fruit, spicy and slightly smokey tin note that is absolutely amazing. It is definitely on the milder side of English and lacks the Orientals that are common in many. The inclusion of Burley lends itself to the very light top note that is added and makes for a very flavorful but mild smoke. The Latakia is present but not overbearing and the sweetness of the Virginia leaf is just perfect. I do like the more robust English blends with plenty of Latakia but this is a very nice change of pace and very satisfying when looking for something a little more mild but with lots of flavor and nuance, especially when sipped gently.

Good blend
It is a very good blend with mild Latakia. It is expensive.

Excellent tobacco
I was surprised at how good this tin smelled when I opened it. Of course I was expecting latakia which is there but it's far more mild than Vintage Syrian. I'm a big fan of SV but this solent mix is certainly moving up to the top five latakia blend list. The warm inviting taste is pleasant and the latakia is less dominate than most latakia blends. I could see myself smoking this every day after a nice dinner.

Smith English
Every day mixture, better with age, and a little moist if you like a smooth English it's for you ,but if you like strong latakia look elsewhere overall tasty blend

Visions of sugar plums
This stuff deserves a studied approach!!! I don't hear much about it these days and I don't understand why? This is hands down 1 of th best things Mac Barren has EVER done !! Th Syrian is not as prevalent as in Vintage Syrian BUT that doesn't take away from its importance. What it does throughout th smoke is very hard to describe .. It moves in and out, continually adding subtlety and nuance!! This ain't an all day kinda smoke 4 me! I don't read.. Watch TV..I don't do anything other than smoke this, th last thing at nite before lights out . Visions of sugar plums....

Smoke like a pirate :-)
I love this baccy, it has the rum / plum note of Mac Baren Plum cake but the Latakia imparts a smokiness to counter the sweetness. I think it's more imagined than a note, but I get a sense of ocean and tar from the mixture. Maybe because I grew up on the coast next to the Solent and associate it with the sea. Either way, this is a robust tobacco, full of flavour and definitely worth trying.
