Sweet, Smoky, Satisfying, Luscious, Balanced. This is our new and very Limited edition blend, Syrian Limited. Combining 12 year old aged Syrian latakia with a very fine cut of nectarous Virginia, matured to perfection, and just enough Orientals to taste them in the background and you have an all day smoke that can't be duplicated. This is a short run blend due to the high quality of the limited ingredients. Enjoy Syrian Limited while you can!

Notes: Limited edition released at 2015 Chicago Pipe Show.

The deeply rich smoky, woody, dry wine-like Syrian latakia is the star component, though this is no lat-bomb. In an important secondary position is the dry, buttery sweet, woody, earthy Orientals, which also sport a touch of spice. The aged Virginia provides some grass, citrus, a touch of dark fruit, and has a light fermented quality and is mostly a background player. The nic-hit is almost mild to medium. No chance of bite or harshness present. Burns cool and clean with a lot of flavor depth that remains consistent from start to finish. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. Has a pleasant, lightly lingering after taste. Not quite an all day smoke, though an experienced smoker of English blends may find it so.

Upon opening the tin, I was greeted with a surprisingly fruity odor. I was expecting more of a Latakia (woodsy, smokey, leathery) aroma—you can detect the Latakia, but it’s mild. The ribbon cut tobacco was a mix of light and dark. A very pleasant smoke, sweet, flavorful and complex that increases in complexity and flavor as you work your way thru the bowl. Nic hit is mild. I am reminded, quite a bit, of Syrian Star, with its strong Virginia presence, and added Syrian Latakia and basma that enhance the smoke. The Latakia here also strikes me as a condiment, with the Orientals adding an extra dimension—in a very positive way. Very, very pleasant room note! Doesn’t bite. Great all day smoke, but given its limited availability, I’ll just go ahead and savor this over some time! Oh my goodness, but this is one fine blend.
