    That stogie is awful close to being a Marsh Wheeling, although, I think they used Pa Red.

    And Marsh surely didn't use long filler during the past 100 years.

    Yes, I smoked it straightaway, it has been made in the style of Bob, dry as possible and without glue, for a direct smoke.

    It drew well, just a bit unevenly burning of the wrapper, as you can see in the pictures, but nothing serious (I had applied the wrapper upside down - veins at the outside of the stick - because I'm still feeling uncomfortable when rolling from right to left).

    English-style Pipe Blend Cigar



    Using the whole tobacco leaf ingredients shown above, which comprise a typical English-style pipe blend, with flue-cured Virginia--both Lemon and Red, an Oriental, some of my 3 year-old Blue Ridge Latakia (which has mellowed considerably with age), and some Perique made with Chillard's White Angel Leaf, I rolled a cigar. I didn't want to further moisten the VA Lemon, which I used as the binder and wrapper, so it's got a few wrinkles and bumps.



    It draws nicely, and burns fairly well, though a little unevenly. It's the equivalent of two or three generous pipe bowls of an English/Balkan blend that I never have to tamp and re-light. My Blue Ridge Latakia is still a little edgier than real Latakia, and is not as floral, but is tasty, and imparts an enjoyable, smokey character. My Chillard's Perique virtually eliminates any flue-cure tongue bite.



    The cross-section at the foot looks just like your average English pipe bend.

    Although usually I'm not a big fan of these yellow style wrappers, it does do justice to what is supposed to be an pipe-blend cigar. The cross-section picture is nice as well, I like those!
