A well balanced pipe tobacco made of the best virginias, a touch of cavendish along with a good measure of Syrian Latakia.

This is a nice mixture of Fisherman's Love Premium Black and Robert McConnell Pure Latakia. Although it could be classified as an "american english", the heavy flavoring turns it into an "aromatic with latakia". It'll probably please the aromatic smoker looking for a latakia experience, but will hardly be favored by the English/Balkan smoker looking for a change of pace, who'll probably find C&D Epiphany or SG Perfection much more satisfying.

This blend comprises what most latakia/aromatic fans might seek: Selected Virginia/Cavendish mixture along with a somewhat heavy amount of Syrian Latakia. Its steady burning keeps dampness and temperature within manageable ranges which also makes it most suitable for latakia beginners. We may blame it on being bland as regards nicotine content, but not all smokers see this as a serious shortcoming. On the other hand, this feature gives us the possibility of consider it as an all day smoke. Those who are afraid of tongue bite, so peculiar to Virginia blends, will find that its balance soothes this effect up to minimal levels. It is also remarkable that this blend comes from Argentina, a country that usually brings in large tobacco harvests but seldom takes part in further processing.

Unfortunately the mixer of this house in Buenos Aires has died, and they no longer make their own mixes. I was lucky to get the last two packages. A perfect mix between English and aromatic. Something similar to the perfection of SG. It lights up easily and naturally in an aromatic it has a nice room note. One smoke for every day and at any time.
