Light yet rich English blend.

Ribbon cuts, darkish in appearance, a mingle of dark probably stoved virginias and black latakias with considerable less quantity of brighter leaf presumably oriental. Tin note is mostly leathery, tangy and to a lesser degree smoky - latakia dominant - but has also a degree of sweetness. Easy to fill and light. Smoking Arcadia at first, though very satisfying and with a bold flavor, I considered it to be just an occasional smoke for my taste because I thought it was a rather dry smoke. Predominant aromas were leathery and smoky with a black peppery spiciness. And although a rich smoke it was not heavy at all. Still, it's better for the evening than at the start of the day. Yet as soon as I got used to it I began to detect a very welcome subtle sweetness. This combined with the fact that it burned very smoothly and stayed lit to the end gave me a deeply satisfying and relaxing experience which I relished for several 45-50 min smokes. Better when smoked calmly as flavors deepen throughout the bowl. Nicotine level is medium +, just right for me to get my kick and it burns to a beautiful fluffy white ash. Room note is rather subtle considering the latakia content of the blend. I know there is a controversy concerning whether this blend contains any latakia at all but if it doesn't then I'd be very surprised....
