Under no circumstances should the label be mistaken for a true representation of the flavors. It is not at all a "little latekia." The Virginia was barely noticeable under the booming clouds of LOUD latekia.

I have been enjoying a lot of straight Virginia flakes. When I was younger I overlooked the subtle joys of Virginia blends. The other day I was looking through my cellared tobaccos for a Virginia with some latakia. When I opened the jar, dated three years ago, I knew that this wasn't going to be a Virginia experience. The jar smell didn't even hint at anything but latakia, and smoking a bowl didn't offer anything but loud, really obnoxious latakia.

There are lots of burning-tire latakia blends on the market. This was supposed to be a subtle blend, with hints of smokey lat. If you had to look for the lat while smoking, and had a sweet Virginia setting the stage, it would be wonderful.

Fail.

I am a Latakia fan. I need some with any English blend I smoke. This is a darn good smoke but not to the level of a few of my favorites like Northwoods. This has tons of creamy smoke and burns pretty cool. Frankly it's a good smoke just not a great smoke. I think many folks will find this a really good smoke. I would suggest if your a big Latakia fan you should give this a shot.
