Notes: Gurkha Retribution is a powerhouse English blend chock full of rich Turkish Orientals and a larger amount of intense and smoky latakia. If you crave rich and bold flavors that smokes smooth and cool try this one on for size.

A very enjoyable blend, but not quite the latakia hit I was expecting. (To be fair my latest go to latakia blend has been H&H's Cerberus, a definite latakia bomb in a great way.) It's a bit more moist out of the tin than I prefer, but so far every bowl has smoked very clean and dry with zero dottle with no additional drying time.

I enjoy Gurkha cigars and picked up a tin of Retribution to see what the brand offers in pipe tobacco. High quality and pleasant to smoke for sure, but not a blend I'm going to reach for when looking for a full latakia experience. I have a feeling this tobacco would age very nicely and plan on socking a few tins away to test out that idea.

Pipe Used: multiple -- briar and meerschaum

Age When Smoked: fresh
