The latakia is smoky and woody, and is the main star of the blend. It's well complimented by the earthy, nutty white burley. The burley is quality choice as is the lemon Virginia that adds an enjoyable tangy sweetness. The mild rum topping is assisted by a complimentary raisin/stewed fruit note or two as well. A colorful blend that's pretty to look at, burns perfectly to the very end, and is complex with a multiplicity of flavors that don't crowd each other out. Smoking it in a pipe with a wide bowl will enhance the experience, but any pipe will work for this mixture.

A mild tasty smoke. The latakia is applied with a gentle hand. I did not get much of the rum flavor but the blend is smooth and of sweet subtle flavor. Did not build much strength as the bowl progressed.

The blend base is virginia with burly and a bit of latakia. Bag smell is of the rum, latakia is faint, brown and blond strands with the burly cubes falling to the bottom.

If you do not like this you can find an Altadis English (or balkan) blend that is just right for you since they have so many available, all in the mild/medium to medium range. I prefer a stronger blend in both nic and taste.

My favorite so far is Altadis English Oriental, which includes Smyrna for sweetness and a gentle touch of St James parish perique, enough latakia for me and burly for added strength.

But try a few and see if you find one that stands out for you.
