The Original Blend of 1848. Mature Red Motted Leaf from North Carolina backed by Black Cavendish and Turkish of Macedonia are blended with a full proportion of Leaf Latakia to produce a blend which has given quiet satisfaction to smokers fro well over a century.
The Scottish Blend is a rather fine cut, coloured tobacco mixture from bright to dark brown. The smell is spicy and definitely affected by Latakia. The tobacco feels a little bit damply and it couldn’t be wrong to let it dry a few minutes before plugging.
Due to the rather fine cut this tobacco could be plugged very well in pipes with any dimension.
The Scottish Blend is easy to light up. After the first flame it could be necessary to flatten with the tamper and then bring up the final glow.
This tobacco is definitely affected by Latakia. Full-bodied, but anyway mild in taste. Due the humidity a little bit condensate is build, what isn’t any problem by smoking with filter. By pipes without filter it may be necessary to dry the air-flow in between with a cleaner, what hasn’t any influence of the smoking pleasure. The Scottish Blend glows down good-natured to a balance of medium grey ash. The taste is comfortable spicy and unobtrusive.
The redolence is definitely affected by Latakia too. Nevertheless the smell of this English mixture isn’t unobtrusive. A lightly sweetness makes this tobacco conditionally socially acceptable.
A pleasing English Latakia mixture, which is slightly damply but very good-natured. Both taste and redolence betray definitely Latakia, but sweet nuances combine with the smoky smell to an more acceptable redolence as most of other Latakia mixtures. The tobacco glows good-natured with a little bit of condensate, but over all it’s easy to handle. Strength and taste are full-bodied, but affect anyhow mild and pleasing. No partial spikes are remarkable. A good tobacco to smoke by the way and the acceptance in societies is astonishing – what should not deceive, that societies, where Latakia is unwanted would make an exception for this tobacco...
