The first time I tried this, I was sure there was a clove casing. The clovey smell has dissipated over time, though, so it was probably just the orientals outgassing the various fermentation byproducts they developed in the tin.
This one was quite good. There is something distinctive in the flavor, one of the orientals I expect, that I can't quite identify but is nonetheless quite tasty (when this stuff was freshly opened it was sort of clovey as well, but with some exposure to air this has moderated along with the cloveyness in the tin aroma).
The first half of the bowl is slightly tilted towards the latakia, but this changes during the bowl so that by the end the orientals have more of a role. However, they never dominate to the extent that the blend becomes unpleasant. This is an interesting medium blend that IMHO nicely bridges between the oriental-heavy style (e.g. Pelican), and the latakia-heavy style (Penzance).
This was a nicely balanced blend, with a fair bit of complexity and nice interplay between the orientals and latakia. A bit sweet, but nicely done nonetheless.
