A Forums member sent me a small and large tin of Barbary Coast because I mentioned enjoying it, and he was off Perique. Most generously, he also sent me five other blends, one of which is SG Squadron Leader. I'm really getting to like it. It's a Virginia based English with Latakia and Orientals, but the artistry is in the balance. The Lat is plentiful, but not overbearing, and the Orientals are proportioned just right to give the base and Lat a bit of zing. I'm not jiminks at profiling flavors, but I'm getting to enjoy this more and more. It has a resonance that rises above the usual English blends. It's a Lakelands blend for me.
