    What are your top 10 "English" blends? (Traditional English, Scottish, Balkan, Americanized, and cross-overs all count for this question). Mine are:

    1) SG Squadron Leader
    2) MacB Solent Mixture
    3) PS English Oriental Supreme
    4) Middleton Walnut
    5) MacB Vintage Syrian
    6) Peterson Old Dublin
    7) PS Balkan Supreme
    8) Dunhill Early Morning Pipe
    9) Frog Morton on the Town
    10) C&D Epiphany

    Special mention goes out to Condor, which is about as English (in the real sense of the word, and not an annoying Yank label) as anything you're ever gonna get!

    1. PS English Luxury
    2. Frog Morton
    3. Dunhill Nightcap

    Those are about all I've tried and really, really liked. I could smoke PSEL all day if you twisted my arm.

    It doesn't count as a lie if your fingers are crossed, does it? :ohyh:

    I've really had my interest in English blends piqued by 1776 Tavern... so I'm writing these down too. They're not 'around the SO' blends, but hey, that's what my 'Library' is for.
