The last two times I made starter kits for new pipe smokers, I've included GLP Westminster.

This one is kind of a Goldilocks. It’s perfectly blended. No one tobacco overpowers the other. It’s dry, smokey, and woody. It’s not too strong. It’s not overpowering. It reminds me of a campfire in the best kind of way. This blend doesn’t seem very sensitive to temperature ranges, so you can smoke it cool or hot and get a consistent flavor.

It's the only GLP English you can get in a tin by the pound. And it's called Westminster. Give it a shot!
I am between Westminster and Quiet Nights.

You might enjoy G. L. Pease Meridian! Meridian by GL Pease is a wonderfully balanced and sophisticated blend. It combines Cyprian Latakia with fine Virginia and small-leaf oriental tobaccos, which are expertly pressed, sliced, and formed into ribbons. Meridian is the perfect companion for a midday stroll or an afternoon tea. The description is of SP. I also enjoy it with rye whiskey! :)images.jpg

Meridian looks like a very good blend. But, there are so many blends, you can't decide. I might flip a coin 😆!

Have you tried it yet? I’d be interested in your thoughts.
I just placed the order. It will take days to get here. I also ordered Bengal Slices, HH Old Dark Fired, HH Burley Flake, GLP Triple Play. Maybe I'll leave Quiet Nights for later (depending on the tin date).

Without experience you cannot develop your palate. Pease is a master blender, and English blends are his specialty. But you will have to verify that in smoke. At best we on the sidelines can only cheer you on.

I absolutely love Westminster, and I just bought 16oz from Smoking Pipes. Smoke it all the time, and it never fails!
