This blend starts as a traditional English blend bringing together Virginia and Latakia, and then Cavendishes are added to smooth the edges. The Cavendish is produced in the English style without additional flavoring, so the natural sweetness of the tobacco shines. The body and flavor both rank as smooth mediums.
I found this blend smooth and well-balanced. The naturally sweet Virginias shined from the very first light, and the Latakias became more pronounced about halfway down the bowl. I didn't get much out of the Cavendishes, yet I could tell they were taming the Latakia. This would make a great after lunch English.
