Re: CS Lewis
- Here in the U.K., it is known as "The Aristocrat
of Pipe Tobaccos". It is quite a mild, Cavendish
blend, IMO, and is one pipe tobacco that seems to be
available absolutely everywhere, whether in a specialist
tobacconist, or a ordinary newsagent. It is a good standby
when you can't get one of your favourites.
- Thanks for the info. Ya know, for a medium it has a lot of flavor. I would have thought it was full strength. Makes me wonder what my reaction would have been towards the full strength? I like Latakia, but not to the point where it's all you can taste. I bought some C & D stuff, Odyssey - I think it's called, and I didn't care for it, but I used it as an inhancer for some blends I thought were lacking something and it was pretty good smoked that way.
