Adding Latakia to Storm Front results in a new blend that is both familiar and intriguing, with some added dimensions of depth to which rounds out the flavor. The Latakia adds flavor without overwhelming what you liked about Storm Front.

It is exactly what it says it is. A derivative blend of Storm Front with Latakia added. There are periods where the Storm Front is quite obvious and other times where the Latakia takes control. It did not manifest as a halfway blend to me.
I expect that if you really like Storm Front, this would be a let down but if you like your Latakia (as I do but only in moderation), Dark and Stormy would be a good gateway drug to Patton's Cigar leaf Burleyland. I guess someone asked for it just as Dark Horse is a customer-requested derivative of Soulmate's Kiss.
On the whole I like it and recommend it. 3 Stars.
