Artisan's Blend brings together a variety of tobaccos. Latakia provides the base with a bit of Virginia and Oriental and a dash of Black Cavendish and Perique. Manufacturers, Kohlhasse and Kopp, list some Dark Fired Kentucky in the blend as well. With all this going on, the body should be strong and the flavor on the bold end of the spectrum.
Now, I found the smoke to be smoother than expected. The blending is expert because there is no competition between the grassy Virginias, smokey Latakia, and spicy Perique. The small bit of Cavendish takes the edge off the smoke without compromising the body and flavor. If you like strong, flavorful English blends, give this one a try.
