    I'll be going to the Low Country Pipe & Cigar shop later this month and it'll be my first occasion to buy G.L. Pease. Are there particular blends you'd recommend? I'll likely be looking for a light-to-medium English but am open to other suggestions as well.

    Great timing on this thread, as I have been contemplating picking up a few or Mr. Pease's blends.

    Also if you are a Cigar smoker, get the Key Largo.

    Lagonda is one of my favorite lat blends right now and Union Square is an excellent Va flake.

    Edit: just realized neither of what I'm recommending is the type of blend you're after. Let us know how it goes

    Bottom line is that you wont find a bad GL Pease blend. They may not all be your cup of tea but they all are well done. Just read the descriptions and get whatever sounds good.

    Haddo's Delight is a sure win. Most everything from GL Pease is good though, so no worries!

    Get a list of all of Greg's blends, find a pin, close your eyes and stick the pin in the list. There you have it, a great blend. Repeat if you want more than one.

    Charing Cross is actually a really good one if you like tons of oriental leaf

    For a light to medium English (these are ones I've tried and liked), I would go with Chelsea Morning or Caravan, on the light side and Maltese Falcon and Lagonda on the Medium (to Med. Heavy) side. I've heard good things about Westminster too. All of his stuff is good and even his bad stuff is still pretty good.

    The ones I like:

    Telegraph Hill
    Stratford
    Charing Cross
    Odyssey
    Meridian
    Quiet Nights

    The ones I don't like:

    Fillmore
    Union Square
    Maltese Falcon
    Westminster

    For whatever it's worth, which should be close to about nada.

    Now for a light-to-medium "English" (I assume you mean something containing latakia), I would highly recommend Chelsea Morning. It lacks the oomph I like but it's a complex, well-conceived blend. I call it a "genius" blend. Very highly recommended for light latakia fare. This reco might carry slightly more weight than the ones I like or not. Slightly.
