    Pleasantly surprised today when I received a package from Atladis containing a tin of "Sutliff Private Stock Blend #5" Don't know why I received it but free baccy is a super bonus.
    Can someone let me kn ow what to expect when i decide to smoke this or if I should let it age for a while before opening?

    It was a couple of months ago when it was going around to fill out a form for a free sample ... I had almost forgot too but received mine about a week and half ago.
    I believe it was a random sample... I too got the Blend No 5.

    It was actually pretty good... a bit mild and not complex at all.... for the price I might pick some up again in the future.

    I think it's pretty good straight out of the tin but it does improve with age. Not really sure it's worth waiting for on this blend though, I would just smoke it now.

    Just opened up the Blend #5 and smoked my first bowl, very "different" than the CH/1Q blend I am used to smoking daily. At first wasn't sure if I liked it but about 1/2 way thru the bowl it kinda started to grow on me. Not a bad after dinner smoke.

    I found B#5 to be a nice mild English. Enjoyable.

    For whereas men of an older school, like myself, smoke for the pleasure of smoking...

    Well, probably not so random, if everybody's getting the No 5

    Altadis is to be complimented for the support they are giving us pipers. They send a CARE package monthly to out pipe club. I like their Englishes.
