Blackpool and Ramsgate were two the first tobaccos that I smoked. I enjoyed the subtle unsweetened, natural licorice notes.Since Esoterica blends have either become unicorns or too expensive for me, are there other blends that you'd recommend that are similar?
Thanks, G

Any of the John Cotton's blends available from Pipes and Cigars or 4 Noggins for like $12 a tin are pretty good I hear! :D

Thanks. I am not really a fan of MIX #79... the thing with the esoterica blends is that you didn't even know there was a licorice element unless someone pointed out - or unless you were really experienced.
Please tell me more about those John Cotton Blends.

If you regularly check marscigars they have stuff like ramsgate and blackpool for 24.99 when it stock, and they seem to get the estorica's in stock pretty often.
