Straus Brothers Private Stock has been pleasing smokers across the countries for three centuries, since 1880! Burleys, Aged Virginias, Perique and XXX Cyprian Latakia provide perhaps the most delightful smoke you'll ever have.

This is probably the best dominate Latakia blend that I have ever tried. The Latakia stays thru the entire smoke without being harsh or too strong.
The Burley, Virginia and Perique makes appearances that really wed with the Latakia. This blend is very finely tuned and balanced.
Private Stock smokes smooth with no bite. It has a suttle "kick" to it and does not smoke wet or gurgle.
And beleive it or not, my wife says Private Stock smells very nice! It's one of her favorites.
If I were ever to leave the Virginias and move to the English; Private Stock would be the blend that I would smoke regularly. I smoke several ounces a year, and will continue.
Since 1880! ...That should tell one something.
