HU Tobacco Fayyum Kake

The Fayyum Kake: Following the success of FbM’s Fayyum Blend, HU Tobacco decided to provide this remarkable mixture of dark fired Virginia, Kentucky, black cavendish and its generous measure of latakia in “Kake” form. The tobacco is pressed in cakes for one week and then cut into plugs. This process enhances the already exquisitely balanced choice of leaf for an ethereally smoky, deeply rich and incredibly complex smoking pleasure.
Notes: Contains 65% Cyprian latakia. Syrian was originally used until the stock ran out. (They changed the name of the series from "Foundation by Musicó" to "African Line")

it is ridiculous to rate a tobacco within 65% latakia as medium or strong. One time more: Strength means nicotine. Otherwise the rubric taste were redundant . Believe or not,latakia has almost zero nicotine and that is the fact I sadly have to accept. I like the taste of heavy latakia blends, on the other hand they do not saturate and let me down when it comes to satisfaction. Fayum Kake does not bite ,delivers lots of campfire and wood and that's all. I stay with blends with less latakia and more virginia or burley to bring some strength in the pipe. Make the test and inhale a big draw of it and compare it to any cigarette, camel filter yellow per example. Or compare it to any VA/PER . Both have more then double of strength
