    Small order arrived today with a few of my favorites in aromatics. 4 bulk ounces each of Lane's RLP-6 and Stokkebye's Golden Dansk. Then McClelland's #22 Virginia. Something new to try is this John Bull which is suppose to be a nice Latakia English Blend from reading reviews.

    Has anyone tried John Bull? Impressions.

    I haven't tried John Bull, but then again I'm not a huge latakia smoker.

    FWIW, CI has it on sale right now -- 1.5 oz. pouch, under $5.

    And CI's regular price on their McClelland 100 gram cans is under $13.

    The John Bull is rather nice. I'm not doing a review but I think it could make a great all day smoke. It's a fine ribbon cut blend of Burley, Black Cavendish and Latakia. A slightly sweet blend with the Latakia more in the background. I do wish it was a little more complex for my taste but for the money it's well worth trying.

    I really like Latakia and Black Cavendish together. Someone on here was saying that they were mixing Black House and Captain Black Dark together. It sounded extremely good. I just might have to order some of this John Bull.

    My soul has had enough chicken soup, it needs more TESD podcast.

    John Bull, I will have to try this, all I need to see is heavy Latikia and my heart starts to race.
