Being an EM fan, I try sometimes to make some homemade blends, using straight Virginias, Perique, Oriental and Latakia or adding Latakia to some mild/poor mixtures. I'm using Robert McConnell, Torben Dansk and Wellauer Latakia. Torben Dansk's is very good indeed although my favourite Wellauer's is more intriguing, more subtle. 4,5/5 in my personal rating system.

This is a blending tobacco (pure cypern Latakia) and you can only use it as a component in our own mixtures. Well, the tobacco is quite good, but there is something better in the market. Less intense than others, this Latakia is mild and you need a great amount in your personal english mixture if you want to have a good latakia taste. Anyway this tobacco is more than sufficient and in my personal system rating (from 1 to 10) the score is 7 and two stars and a half.

Great quality pure Cyprian Latakia. Wonderful thin aroma. Not as heavy as other pure Cyprian Latakia options but esquisite flavour. Superb for blending with other pure tobaccos to make your own mixture or fine tuning light latakia blends. Great for smoking straight if you are a latakia lover. Straight the flavour is huge, but not overwelming.

un très bon tabac, qui me rappelle l'ancien temps. Une fumée avec des arômes de bois fumé. On ressent vraiment que le tabac a un séchage, long, (dark _ fired cured?) et au feu. Cette odeur montre ce qu'est du vrai tabac pur. Tel les odeurs de nos ancetres les indiens. Un retour en arriere de trois siècles!!

My first contact with the holy smoked leaf.Good for straight smoking,less strong than in many blends,that´s the craftmanship of blenders.Good marriage with Perique.I can´t understand the reason because many people seem afraid of smoking straight,it is a nice and nothing overhelming experience,so you can appreciate the real master blenders and know the botching mixtures.
