Review: This is a lesser known subcategory of English blends. When I bought it the tobacco was , more or less, uniformly medium brown with a narrow range of color variations and uniform in it's cut. The moisture content was at a normal level and it packed and smoked straight forwardly with only a short drying time. Setting the aromatic component aside for the moment, I would classify this blend as a medium English that was very satisfying on the level of Dunhill Standard Mixture Medium. The aromatic component was light, sweet and I was not able to identify any particular "flavor" in it. The middle range of this smoke was soft and friendly and, yes, nut like in flavor. All in all, I enjoyed this blend straight out of the tin and have made it my current "English base" tobacco in microblending. Not the best English blend I've ever smoked, but very enjoyable and recommendable - three stars.
