The Country Squire Tobacconist Bowser's Castle

For the Latakia FIEND... Feed your inner reptilian villain! A recipe developed for a local customer whose tastes are decidedly "English". An incredible concoction of red and yellow Virginias, burleys, a dash of Oriental leaf, and 35% Cyprian latakia. Lots of smoky, peaty goodness! Smooth on your tongue and rich in flavor.

now that fall is here, I've been pulling out some of my Latakia forward blends. I had picked up some Bowser's from the Country Squire in 2017, smoked a little and jarred up the rest.

This one is still very Latakia forward. That smokiness comes through the pipe and pretty much covers the other elements of the blend. In a distant second place is the virginia base which lends some sweetness in the background.

It reminds me of the other "Latakia Bombs" that I've smoked and I think any fan of them will enjoy this blend.
Pipe Used: various straights
