Nothing but the big tins for me from now on! It smells of Victorian London, of hansom cabs and Holmes and Watson hot on a case. It calls up the fog of Dickens's Bleak House. It is the quintessential English smoke. All the more enjoyable that you have to cut off portions from a small brick of the blend. It gives as much enjoyment doing that, with the smell and the feel, as it soon does in my Peterson Watson pipe. Oh, the thoughts of old England it conjures up! I love this dreamy blend. The Latakia is lovely, balanced by everything else. It is cool, long burning, and absolutely delectable. It's the highlight of my tobacco rotation. I'd smoke it all day, but that would be spoiling myself. I save it for a savoury treat. The range and quality of the G. L. Pease offerings have made that my brand of choice in most areas, English,Navy, Balkan, and Virginia (oh that Jack Knife Plug is at the opposite pole, but equal in sensory delight). If you like the ritual of cutting, folding, bending or rubbing tobacco, if you want a plain good old-fashioned smoke that's true to the period it echoes, this is a must try! I'm glad I did. I predict, so will you. Note: For the experienced pipe artist, who knows what he likes and demands in a great tobacco!

I asked Rich for his recommendations as the baccy i wanted was out of stock, am i glad it was Gaslight is a beautifully presented in 4 packs of 2 one ounce plugs soft like a crumble plug easily cuts and packs it is just about a lat bomb at charing light but becomes a very tasty complex blend, so for that thank you Rich
