As I somehow got back to Latakia blends recently, I digged through my samples and found Latakia Revival... the day before I got the chance to smoke a claypipe full of Dunhills Nightcap and loved it... somehow Latakia Revival is a pretty good alternative to it (albeit not being intended to be a match!!).
Latakia Revival is a tad less strong than Nightcap and has more fruitiness to it - tastewise. The Latakia is well measured, smoky, sweet and creamy with some leatheriness to it. The Perique mainly adds some fruity backbone, as well as minor pepper. Orientals are - as usual with Motzek blends - top notch... ethereal, nutty, woodsy, perfect! Virginias add sweetness as well as some minor citrusy notes.
More of an All-Day-Smoke than Nightcap! Truly a pleasureful blend! 14€ for 100g is an insanely good price, whilst the quality is very high. Highly recommended, to anone who likes Nightcap and alike. Update: This grew to be my favorite Latakia-Mixture! A worthy replacement for the Nightcap imho. Don't get me wrong... this isn't exactly as Nightcap is, but in the same vein!
Pipe Used: Clays, Cobs, Briars
Similar Blends: less potent version of , Dunhill - Nightcap, , with more fruity peaks.
