Good latakia tobacco. Not so "dusty" as latakia can be.

This one is a nice way to aquaint yourself with Latakia blends....on the basis of having tried three others, namely Kong Frederik Full / - Medium, and W.O. Larsen No. 28.

To me Latakia blends are nice now and then, but I find the characteristic taste easily overpowers the other tobaccos in the blend- leaving a slightly one-dimensional taste experience. Not so with this one ( or the W.O. Larsen by the way ), this is merely seasoned with Latakia, leaving room for especially the Oriental flavour to blend in, a smoky/salty/spicy sort of taste, but not overly aggresive.

Also this is a very easy tobacco to pack and smoke; sensible humidity out of the tin, nice managable cut making it easy to pack, and smokes dry and without much tongue bite or bitterness towards the bottom of the bowl.

If you are into the uncased tobacco variety, give this a try.
