This almost black tobacco combines the best grades of naturally sweet Virginia and smoky latakia, matured together under pressure. A wonderfully smooth and full bodied mixture, reminiscent of the old Bengal Slices.

Without all the bullcrap, it's good. Respect a slow cadence on this as it can bite. One of my favorite blends, but not an all day smoke for this palette. Burns down fine with little dottle, just do a thorough job of rubbing it out.

F & K - Lancer Slices.

The flakes aren't overly broken, the pouch contains a few ribbons but the majority of the blend still has the constitution of flakes; just 'slightly' rubbed. This arrived last week so hasn't had ages sat in the loose pouch to dry out but the moisture's good.

I like my flakes to be fully rubbed and this still requires a decent rub to reach the consistency for me. However, the job's relatively simple to do.

The smoke has quite a full flavour but the Latakia isn't too omnipotent, or sharp. Don't get me wrong, the Lat' accounts for more flavour than the Virginia but it's more of a calm, smoky, taste, as opposed to a sharp, vibrant, one. The Virginia, although lighter, gives the smoke a breadiness. It burns well, is slow in speed, and doesn't bite.

Nicotine: medium. Room-note: quite heady.

Lancer Slices? A smoke I'll highly recommend:

Four stars.

The smell and taste are grassy and leathery. I like these aspects of Virginia and latakia, so I'm definitely anticipating a good smoke.

The taste does not disappoint. There is obvious latakia, but not too much. It overpowers the Virginia (can still taste it, though) but not me. It burns nice and cool and the taste very much reminds me of leather. Another blend that's really a 3.5/4.

A rich full bodied smoke, that plus thick latakia smoke. Tastes sweet with nutty and leather undertones. There is a sour note to this that isn't unpleasant, but its a little to strong. Packs and burns easily. Burns cool and doesn't bite.
