Samuel Gawith Squadron Leader Pipe Tobacco

Quick Overview

Samuel Gawith Squadron Leader is one of those almost-perfect tobacco blends that every fan of English blends should keep a stock of. It’s medium-bodied, smooth and easy to smoke, while still giving enough strength to satisfy. This blend won’t knock you out, but it will knock your socks off -- the perfect balance in our humble opinion

Whenever I thought I can no longer be impressed by an English Blend, here comes this weasel. It's simply amazing, and the most amazing fact about it is its simplicity. Nothing fancy, a constant mellow sweetness from first light to the last puff, with a whisper of latakia (so yeah, for all you lat bomb fiends, this one ain't for you). I was thrown off at first, as when I read the review a while ago, before actually trying the baccy, Latakia was listed first in the blend composition so I figured that would have been the dominating note. In fact, this is a Oriental/Turkish forward blend, that is very well balanced by the Virginia with a fantastic consistency of taste all throughout the smoke. No bite, regardless of how hard you try to punish it, right moisture out of the tin, sweet mellow nose in accord with the taste (hardly any smokiness, also hardly any dark/black ribbon visible to the naked eye) ... shoot, I may have found my golden tobacco. Ask me again in six months, but if you find me having the same opinion of the Squadron Leader, I may reduce my winter rotation by half next year ... unless I over do it, smoking it to the point I really get tired of it, it has happened before

Samuel Gawith Squadron Leader Tobacco is a blend of bright an dark Virginias with Latakia and Turkish leaf for a cool, medium bodied smoke. This creates a light, almost airy English, with subtle tobacco flavours. The Latakia does not dominate the blend yet it is certainly noticeable. Meanwhile, some mild Virginia sweetness tickles your palate  yet it is not cloying. There is also a nice amount of oriental spice yet it is not acrid. Overall, Squadron leader is a delicately blended mixture of high quality tobaccos that every pipe enthusiast should try.
