Mike & Russ: The Mind Meld Full Latakia

Russ Ouellette loves Oriental tobaccos, and Mike McNiel has access to some of the finest available, so it should be no surprise that they would get together to create a rich Latakia blend, noticeably influenced by exotic leaf. Mike & Russ - The Mind Meld Full Latakia contains a large dose of Cyprian Latakia which is supported by some of McClelland's finest matured Virginias and a combination of fragrant Orientals. The blend is smoky, tangy with floral undertones and a mellow sweetness. It's a cool blend with plenty of robust flavor and subtle nuances that change constantly through each bowl.

Thank goodness this is not the same Lat used in Sweet English. This one is soft and gentle with a nice flavor. Unfortunately, that's all this blend has to offer. I get a bare hint of Oriental and a slight touch of Virginia sweetness with no Virginia flavor. I completely agree with King Weed about using this as a blending tobacco. Should be able to make a very nice English out of this.

Mild to medium in body and taste. No added flavoring. Burns very well.
