Okay I admit to loving the detective stories about Sherlock Holmes, and the Basil Rathbone movies. I have some of the pipes. I have some of the tobaccos. This is a good honest effort at recreating the period, and Holmes did smoke a Virginia base, which I find Samuel Gawain's Full Flake is fine! For Watson it has to be orientals and Latakia, for sure. The Black Shag gets a high rating all the same.The smoke gives quite a nicotine kick if you don't expect it. But soon you are surrounded by billowy clouds of airy rings and curls. Lot's of smoke, and great if you want to blow a smoke ring. This smoke characteristic must come from the wonderful shag cut. I was surprised to find no bite at all (not my usual experience with Virginias). It was delightful. A full clean burn, no dottle, clean white ash, after one char with a match and one tamp and one light. I recommend this to those who are interested in finding new tobacco experiences. It will be on my list, so come Watson, light up and pass me the spill.
