Skiff Mixture is Samuel Gawith's all-day English option. Latakia and Orientals compliment a broad base of Virginias. Flue cured tobaccos meld for a naturally sweet smoke with a touch of spice. A pleasant smoke for a day on the river.
Balance is the key for this polite English blend. I found the Virginias most forward with a hint of citrus and some natural sweetness. The Latakia and Oriental served only to highlight the flavors of the Virginias. The body caught me off guard because it's smooth and not full bodied. I found some complexity too, so give this one a try for an all-day English.
