A latakia blend with a twist: the Turkish Orientals were gently toasted to change the flavor profile.

Notes: From Pipes&Cigars website, written by Russ Ouellette: About five or six years ago, I was asked to create a limited run blend for some friends. I wanted it to be something special, so I made a Latakia blend with a twist: the Turkish Orientals were gently toasted to change the flavor profile. We called it Fireworks, and people really enjoyed it, but we had to stop production because the toasting process took too much time. In honor of our nation's independence, we're re-releasing this hearty latakia blend, but as with the original, it will be available for a limited time, so if you enjoy it, you'd better stock up.

A unique oriental forward mixture, with some Latakia support. The Turkish Orientals are toasted to change the flavor profile. In the first half bowl, the toasted Turkish tastes really like toasted nutty burley; in the meanwhile the latakia shadows in the background. Second half latakia appeared very slowly and dominate.

Three and a half stars.
