Well gentlemen, here we are. The much talked about Reserve #21 added to the database.
As a latakia devotee, I have yet to be satisfied by a blend that doesn't contain any. That is, until now.
It is my opinion that this tobacco is what many other English blends wish they were. The natural flavour and aroma are opulent and exotic. The balance of tobaccos, and moisture in the pouch, are perfect. The foil pouch assures ideal storage.
I don't lament the absence of latakia, but I am surprised that a blend could cover such a broad spectrum of oriental essence without it. Ideal afternoon smoke.
