Punchestown, no longer available, was one of the best latakia blends I have ever tried. It had a balanced, full English taste and because of the rough cut, burned very slowly. I still miss it after three decades.

Pipe Used: Stanwell

Age When Smoked: new

Purchased From: pipe shop in Reading, PA circa 1980

Similar Blends: Taste close to Sobranie 759 but slower burn, and perhaps even more latakia..
