Savinelli Giubileo d'Oro

From P&C's website:
Savinelli's Giubilieo d'Oro is an elegant flake made of sweet Virginias from the US and Brazil with excellent Cyprian Latakia. The tobaccos are pressed and sliced into flakes. Giubilieo d'Oro is on the gentler side of the latakia scale, and blended so expertly that all the tobaccos are in perfect harmony. Named for one of Savinelli's most treasured line of pipes, this smooth and zesty flake certainly lives up to the name.

Whether you fold and stuff or fully rub out these flakes, you're in for a treat. The sweetness and tang of the superb flue-cured tobaccos take the forefront, but a creamy, leathery note from the Latakia is always present, while never assaulting the palate. Mellow enough to be enjoyed at any time of day, Giubilieo d'Oro will be a welcome companion. Pop the tin, sit back, and enjoy the reverie that only a superlative tobacco can deliver.

I smoked a bowl of this today and found it refreshing. Nice moisture level.

Don't think I've had an English quite like this. The VA was definitely forward in the smoke with the latakia in the background which resulted in a smokey and sweet taste, almost woodsy. Found this one to burn slow and cool. Looking forward to going through the rest of the tin. I'd be interested to hear impressions from others who primarily smoke English blends.

For this time I rolled and put in the bowl with the edges up. This one seemed to break more easily than others.
