With a tin description like the one on Meerschaum Magic's label, one might expect to encounter another "lat bomb". Not so, as MM smokes relatively smoothly and balances all that Latakia with the other components into the aroma and taste one comes to expect from a quality medium/heavy English. I have smoked some "lat bombs" in my time and, I dare say, so has the reader. I don't know about you, but I have found them to be consistently harsh, imbalanced and boring. Meerschaum Magic, on the other hand, has no harshness in its smoke and is perfectly balanced and, definitely, is not boring. MM proves that it is possible to blend a higher Latakia content English mixture that smokes in the realm of normalcy. Highly recommended - 4 stars.

Similar Blends: Robert Lewis 123 Mixture and Brebbia Balkan smoke somewhat similarly in that they both have a higher Latakia content with well balanced base blends..
