On opening my 50g tin, the fresh, tangy aroma of oranges and spices was released and whetted my tastebuds for the experience to come. It's an almost black-looking blend and, as I sniffed in the tin-note deeply, I thought I could detect more than a hint of Latakia, although I didn't know at that moment that it was part of the recipe.
Despite being very moist, it packed easily into my meerschaum and after a charring light, a slight tamp and one more dance of the flame from my gas lighter across the surface I settled back for over an hour's gentle smoke. The flavour is decidedly English, despite that orangey tin-note, and the Latakia is not overly-prominent but melds well into the overall flavour. A most pleasant blend for the English enthusiasts.
