Looking for blends that haven’t been explored by the masses, and because by god it’s my thread :rofl:

John Cotton’s No.1
Come for the Latakia, you’ll stay for the Orientals.

Sorry didn't count reviews, but several that don't get much play but are readily available: Nat Sherman 536; C&D Tuggle Hall 965; Sutliff Lord Nelson; and C&D Bayou Night (questionably English but somewhat so).

...I checked the specs, and Cornell & Diehl categorizes Bayou Night as English with no questions. I cede to their expertise.

Guess I should have added that my use of the term “english” equates to the blend has some Latakia in it, with no level of topping that would put the blend into the aro category.
I’m probably pissing off some english blend purist by the above over simplification ha!
Some unknown-to-me brands are now on my radar - thx and keep em coming. One of the above named blends is more than 50 reviews for sure; forgive-able and appreciated all the same :wink:
