    About Northwoods, maybe I am missing something or it may be too wet. It has all the ingredients I love, but it somehow feels too one-dimensional if that is a good word to use. It does smell delightful and I feel like I am missing something because the taste is a little dull to me. Your thoughts?

    I agree, It's just kind of a muddled mess of taste.


    So you say you can drink? Well, I'm from Wisconsin. Try to keep up.

    Me, too. Found it disappointing. I like Countryside better, but for me Boswell is all about aros. That's their real forte'.

    I am not an English aficionado, so I find most lat-forward blends a struggle to smoke. But, as regards Boswell's, their Premium Burley is a very decent mild burley -- I'd give 3/4 stars.

    After some time he felt for his pipe. It was not broken, and that was something. Then he felt for his pouch, and there was some tobacco in it, and that was something more. Then he felt for matches and he could not find any at all, and that shattered his hopes completely.

    I dont think it is the latakia because I love that stuff, and maybe it is the way most of the tobacco is toasted in Northwoods that makes it lose flavour.

    In the words of Brian Levine, "It has Latakia. EWWWWWW!", lol.

    Seriously, I have heard a lot of fans of English blends really enjoy it.

    I smoked a lot of this ( going back 10yrs now ) but since have found other blends that I really enjoy more when looking for the Lat hit - GLP's Odyssey, Cornell & Diehl: Star of the East Flake, L.J. Peretti's Omega, SG's Winter Time Flake... just to name of few.
