Some blends I like that fit in this genre(s): Fairmorn's Lancer's Slices; C&D Pirate Kake; Grant's Emperor Norton; and Park Lane has several, with Bengal modeled after the eponymous Slices and PL 11012 among them. Then there are the Hermit's, notably Ten Russians and the just released Stimulus Package.

thanks for watching my back bro!

No Walnut?

Who's Walnut? Never heard of it. Or the Uhle's either Embarassed

Uhle's is one of the older B&M still operating in North America. They have some wonderful, hand-made blends, and I think Bishop's Move is their best in the latakia area. Though I find it very full and flavorful, I don't find it strong in taste. Very rounded edges and everything seems to meld nicely, it's my favorite latakia blend these days. Their #300 Cubed Burley is also wonderful.

PostSubject: New McClelland Blends I've tried   Sun Dec 19, 2010 12:21 pm

I have recently been smoking Wilderness, Nocturne and Three Oaks Syrian. Wilderness is a new blend that gets good reviews, Nocturne is a Kansas City Pipe Club blend and Three Oaks has been around for a while but the more recent addition contains Syrian Latakia. I'm partial to English/Balkan blends and I'm a latakia lover so these tobaccos are right up my alley. Nocturne is a sleeper and most guys have not heard of it but I can say of the three blends it is my personal favorite.

Strongest heaviest English blend. A re-creation of dunhills A11010 now made by Park Lane Tobacconist.
Heavy duty

It's nice to see that some of you are into the Old Dog, as I just got my first tin today. If I hadn't just lit up a lovely Va Flake, I'd have to pack a bowl right now.

For a true English, and not just a lat bomb, Dunhill London Mixture, Dunhill Nightcap, Uhle's Bishop's Move, and GLP Quiet Nights. Dunhill London Mixture is the benchmark as far as I am concerned.

Speaking of Quiet Nights, I just got my first tin. It is amazing. When I first lit it up I thought, "aw, just another latakia heavy blend..." but it gets so good. New favorite English for sure.

I find that the Savinelli English Mixture is much stronger than any of my other English's including Dunhill Nightcap, Frog Morton, and Penzance

The heaviest Lat I have tried to date is without a doubt, Captain Earle's Ten Russians. Whoa! Talk about a Lat bomb. Ten Russians will knock you on your -ss! Good, quality tobacco but make sure you don't smoke this on an empty stomach (a steak and potatoes meal prior to smoking is probably the right way to go).

Wilderness is very smooth, a blend I smoke all the time and full of flavor (as is Maltese Falcon--these are two of my favorites!)

IMHO a couple of the "richer" tasting latakia blends would be Bufflehead Snow Goose, London Blend 1000, Old Ironsides, Fairmorns Lancers Slices and Bill Baileys Balkan blend. The only one that I know of that is still available is the Lancers Slcies.

I love the Lancer's Slices. Smokes like a dream, stays lit and tastes incredible.

For me it was the old Dunhill Nightcap. Still have an unopened tin I need to get to one of these days.

Bishops Move has been mentioned several times here. I'm reasonably familiar with it and have some right now that I hit on every so often.

Frankly I don't feel it's all that full. In fact I'd put it in the med category, at least for my tastes. Very nice, well balanced, somewhat complex, but heavy.....not.

Many of the others listed here I haven't tried, so wtf do I know?!

I have a lot of unopened tins, but so far the fullest I have tried that I also thought was a fine smoke was Peretti's Omega. I also enjoy the Old Ironsides I have, but it's five years old so I am sure it is mellowed quite a lot. I don't find the OI I have to be particularly full. Smoky but mellow.

The Lane Dunhill London Mixture was a staple here at chez Brewdude. Without a doubt my go-to English choice about 10 years ago. I even took a couple tins with me on my holiday in the UK back in '01. Talk about taking coals to Newcastle!

Recently got in a tin of the new Orlik stuff, but haven't opened it yet. Need to correct that soon!

Exclamation

Right now, I seem to reach for P&W Churchill and #78 for English blends. While they're not especially full bodied (at least to my taste) they do have je ne sais quoi...

Agree with Tim. I loves me some Odyssey. I am fortunate to have stocked up on Penzance whenever I could and I always fall back to that as my go to.

Dunhill #73. I used to order it from Dunhill's store in London, but that was years ago. I have one tin left. Here is the description from tobacco reviews:

"The fullest flavoured 'English Mixture', which is recommend for an evening smoke. Over 52% Latakia, with Cavendish, Virginias, Perique, and Oriental leaf."

It is the large proportion of Latakia which makes this blend strong. The other components come across mildly but it's hard to say since it seems like the Latakia is drowning out the other components.

Did anyone mention Margate? That is a full-flavored blend all around: a good portion of quality Latakia blended with rich Virginias - heavenly cheers

Margate is probably the heaviest English I smoke on a regular basis. What about C&D Star of the East? I haven't tried it yet but I just bought a sample and it sure smells lat heavy.

GLP Odyssey will deliver a solid latakia treat. I would suppose that would place it in the heavy English category. It's a great smoke, however, fairly one dimensional. If you love latakia that is the "main" dimension necessary to fill a large bowl just before sack time.
