A blend prepared and cut by craftsmen in a factory steeped in knowledge and experience. The unique latakia of this blend is carefully matched with Turkish Dubec leaves to establish a first bouquet. Cool smoking and maturity are then assured by an equal proportion of jet black cavendish which has matured in "Scotch Presses" capable of heat and pressure. The addition of bright Carolina and red Virginia imparts their mellow nutty flavour and the blend is completed. A connoisseur's blend for those who are seeking the finest in latakia mixtures.
