    I bought a tin of this along with my last shipment of my current favorite, Wessex Campaign. This offering by S.Gawith definitely takes a close second.

    On opening the tin, you’re greeted by that same sweet figs aroma I’m beginning to associate with a quality Virginia. However, English Summer has more of that hayloft note than the Campaign.

    I also found the flakes to be dryer than Campaign, though that may be the fact I kept the Summer until after I finished the Campaign or even just straight up luck of the draw. Like Campaign, I found Summer easy to pack with the fold method, though it did not light as readily.

    The flavor is not as sweet and full as Campaign’s; indeed, at a few points it even tasted unfortunately like cigarette smoke when I detected much flavor at all.

    The aroma, however, is sweet, pleasant and warm as one expects from a quality pipe smoke; a truly sensual experience.

    The so-so flavor puts this one right in the midline of my current experiences (though along with Campaign, they still easily edge-out my prior favorites by McClelland). Were’t not for that I might rate this one a bit higher. Still, it’s such a mild flavor, I can see enjoying it on a hot and balmy day with some sweet iced tea. I just might enjoy Campaign more.
