Hearth & Home - Larry's Morning Blend (Signature Series).
The mixture includes one or two coarser ribbons, but also a few twiggy pieces. The clear plastic topping to the tobacco, underneath the metal lid, conceals a perfectly hydrated blend.
I find the Latakia has the most alacrity and outweighs the other tobaccos. The Virginias don't really have a say in the flavour, it's driven by the smoky Lat', which is supported by a buttery sweetness from the Orientals. The burn goes without fault: slow, cool, producing a bite-free smoke. The room-note could be considered a little too strong, but I don't find it offensive. And finally the nicotine: a healthy amount.
Larry's Morning Blend? A belting smoke.
