This blend offers a lot of smoke, earth, wood, leather, floralness, and some musty spicy sweetness. It’s sweeter, softer and less pungent than Latakia usually is. The strength and taste aspects are a couple of steps past the medium mark. The nic-hit is medium. Won’t bite or get harsh. Has some rough edges, which is typical of Latakia. Burns cool, clean and a little slow. Leaves little moisture in the bowl. Requires some relights due to the moisture level and thick coarse cut of the tobacco. Has a pleasantly lingering after taste, and tolerable room note. Smoked straight in a small bowl, it’s certainly not an all day smoke. Obviously meant to be a mixer.

First impressions are simply great.

Smoking this made me realise what I love about Timm London Brend no.1000 and Bill Bailey’s Balkan - the high amounts of Latakia.

It’s marketed as a mixing tobacco but it also states that it can be smoked by itself too, and delightfully that too.

Its not super strong, but does offer a mild nicotine hit, which is very welcome.

I got the 100 gram packet and plan to mix it with the tobaccos that i had lost interest in, namely my aromatics and see if they taste any better to me then.

Very flavourful with unmissable flavours of leather, wood and some spice. Also lavish in smoke.

Smokes cool, and slowly. I have the usual complaint of tongue bite and this one doesn’t bite. Smoke it without hesitation.

I would deem this a must have for latakia lovers.
Pipe Used: Meerschaum
Age When Smoked: Straight out of new pack
