One of the best Latakia-Blends i've tried so far!
The tin smell offers a lot of Latakia, maybe a bit sour-ish, somewhat floral note. It's easy to fold/rub-out and pack.
Lighting it isnt a problem at all, due to its relativly low moisture level. The moisture is just fine.
The taste is just awesome and delicious. The strong Latakia smell from the tin isnt that strong in the taste. Its a smooth Latakia taste you get, paired with a floral and very small sour-ish note from the Orientals. The Virgina helps making this smoke even more mellow and smooth.
The smoke is almost oily, almost herbal to me. It made my lip feel a bit oily too! Creamy, delicious smoke it gives.
Id say this is for Latakia beginners, too. Even if it still is strong in Latakia it wont overhelm anybody and the Orientals and VA make it a very good rounded off blend for me. The tobacco is strong - but not too strong. Its just the right nicotine-level imho.
Just excellent tobacco, very refined. If you like or love Latakia - this ones definetly for you. If you want to try out Latakia - id recommend it, too!
4/4 for me here.
