What a cake! Scent of hop, malt, tart-spicy leatheriness, delicate sweetness. Characterful Virginias, fully-matured latakia (20%), supplemented and rounded by nutty burley, aromatic perique, some black cavendish and a pinch of Orientals. Pressed and matured the flavors melt into a smokers delight!

Notes: The TAK Latakia Cake deserves its name. When opening the bag comes to the clear smell of smoky latakia countered, accompanied by something which is probably the most accurate with "hopfig, malty".

As the name says, the tobacco is pressed under high pressure and added heat to a cake. Before, cut tobacco (no whole tobacco leaves) is tuned and mixed with each other. This results in a much looser consistency than a plug, which makes it much easier to use. Nevertheless, pressing is a miraculous process, and this results in a very harmonious result.

It consists of a neat portion of Virginia, and an equally orderly portion of latakia. Add to this our characteristic perique, a bit natural burley, and to round it off, a little pinch black cavendish and Oriental.

To make the tobacco "ready to smoke" it is enough to loosen it between the fingers. If you want, you can also get your plug-knife to cut the tobacco from the block.

The grassy, citrus and dark fruity Virginias also have a little earth and floralness, and form the base of the blend in a support role. The smoky, woody, lightly sweet Cyprian latakia is a team player despite its presented amount. The natural burley is a little nutty, with hints of toast and molasses, as it plays lightly below the level that the Virginias do. The perique is a tad more than a condimental addition, and offers more plum than raisins and spice. The dry, floral, woody, slightly buttery sweet Oriental lurks in the background. A little pinch of sugary black cavendish helps to smooth out potential rough edges. The nic-hit is just past the mild to medium level. No chance of bite or harshness even when pushed. The product is produced in an easily broken apart cake form, burning cool and clean with a very consistent, nuanced flavor from start to finish. Leaves just a little dampness in the bowl, and requires a few relights. Has a pleasant, lingering after taste and room note. Not quite an all day smoke.
