The pouch aroma of this blend is very nice. In the aroma, I am picking up on the smoky Latakia along with some sweet and spice from the Virginias and the Orientals. The moisture content was perfect for smoking right away. I loaded up my pipe and proceeded to the charring light.

On the charring light, I am picking up on some light smokiness and a little sweetness on the base of a nice tobacco taste. There are some nice, thick billows of smoke coming from this blend. I finished lighting the pipe and settled in for the smoke.

Right from the start, I can taste the Latakia, but it is not overpowering. There is also a nice sweetness accompanying the smoky Latakia, but I detect the sweetness more on the finish. It goes very well together. First there is the smoky and lightly spicy taste from the puff of smoke, and the there is the sweetness on the finish when you blow the smoke out. They are a very nice compliment to each other. The taste was very consistent from the beginning throughout the end. It was very nice. I would call this a Medium English blend.

Sunjammer is a very good blend. It has a very nice flavor, burns cool, dry, and didn’t bite. In their description of this blend, they mention Dunhill 965. At the time of this review, I have not smoked Dunhill 965 so I do not know how these two blends compare to each other. I like this blend quite a bit and if you enjoy English blends, I think you will enjoy it as well.
I Recommend it.

    I think I saw this on my trip to the local B&M yesterday. I was curious, but didn’t try it.
    I did however like Dunhill 965, if they are that close I may have to give it a try in the near future.

    Excellent review Bob, as if you do any other kind.

    Thanks for the review Bob. Ouellette is one of my favorite blenders, but I have always shied away from Sunjammer because of the Latakia. Every now and then I like that sweet Virginia taste; and if the Va’s and Latakia work together nicely, this might be good for when I get that appetite.
