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. 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.

A rich full bodied smoke, that plus thick latakia smoke. Tastes sweet with nutty and leather undertones. Packs and burns easily. Burns cool and doesn't bite.
