Scandinavian Tobacco Group (STG) Erinmore Latakia

Erinmore Latakia is a blend of flue cured Virginia and sun cured Oriental tobaccos mixed with black cavendish. As a final touch we have added fire cured latakia tobaccos from Cyprus.
Notes: The original name was Erinmore Latakia Supreme. Originally produced by Murray Sons & Co., Ltd, it was bought by STG when Murray's stopped producing blends. No date is available on when "Supreme" was dropped from the official name of the blend.

I only received a sample of Latkia Supreme from a friend who I swap tobacco with in Denmark. Nothing typically Danish about this one as the flavor of the Latakia is very full and the Virginia and Turkish make the presence known in waves of flavor. What impressed me most was the truly top shelf richness of all the components, telling me that not only was quality leaf employed, but leaf that was given time to age properly.

Surprisingly no one gives a full 4 star to this beauty. Reviewing a tobacco I guess is totally subjective. So here is my background of smoking: Smoked cigs for almost 20 years (but never like the smell,only for the sick of nicotine). After that I like to RYO,mainly Mac Baren Original. In between I smoke some fine Cuban cigars (but time & place is always a problem. Prefer indoor with air conditioner since I stay in tropical area,but very difficult to find a place nowadays). Finally I tried on pipe smoking and fell in love months ago. So far on my pipe table I have 20+ different tobacco, aromatic & Virginia & Burley & English blend (with Latakia). Now I can say I like Latakia much more than any others. Straight Virginia would be the second. Ok, back to Erinmore Latakia Supreme, it is my latest phurase of tobacco. Before this, I bought and tired English Blend as following: Dunhill Night Cap & MM965, Frog Morton Original & Cellar, Samuel Gawith Commonwealth & Balakan Flake, Rattray Red Rapparee,Savinelli English Mixture. After all these mostly very famous and reputable tobacco, I find out I am a Latakia lover, Enrinmore makes me feel to grab it every day and every bowl. Even the day is for my Aromatic or Virginia or Burley pipes, I will roll a cig with full Erinmore Latakia Supreme. Smoking this tobacco makes me feel I am drinking pure full milk from Newzland. The thickness,the smothness,the mildness of the smoke is totally amazing. I read a lot reviews here about the toobacco I mentioned above, but none of them whatever they are Night Cap,Frog Morton... can be par with this truly shinning beauty. I LOVE IT! But I am aware I cant depends on 1 tobacco only. So sencod to Erinmore Latakia Supreme, I will back up with SG Commonwealth and Frog Morton Original. Ok, the room note is too strong and harsh for my lady even though she likes a RYO or cig once a while. Yeah, that's it. Sorry I have no ability to tell you that all kinds of flavours and notes at first half of bowl, middle of the bowls, end of bowl. For this great forum, I appreciate so many detailed inputs for so many tobacco, thank you very much! As always, the above is ONLY my subjective review.

This English offering from STG deserves more stars than what was given here.

So it's a four stars from me, how couldn't I? This is my staple tabac that I smoke daily and on monthly basis I would consume at least 200gm of this Supreme Latakia. Yes Erinmore SL may not be a lavish English Blend but the fact that it is quite smokable regularly every day says something about the muted quality and satisfaction one gets.

For one I love how easy it is to simply pack into the bowl and with just a couple of charring lights, it stayed lit until the very end. Smoked at relaxed cadence, towards the end the taste remained consistent if not more appealing. But the puffing cadence will need to be slowed down quite a bit towards the bottom.

There's sweetness of Virginia among the smokey nuances of Latakia, I love it, just simply love it. There's no tongue bite for as long as I remained sensible with the puffs. And no sour aftertaste like what I get from some tobaccos

And so, between this Erinmore SL and Peterson Wild Atlantic, my pipe experience is complete
