Briar Patch King Solomon's Mines
Though some may consider this more of a Balkan style blend with the amount of beautiful Turkish leaf involved, this full bodied blend will be a pleasure to any smoker who likes latakia that doesn’t overpower the rest of the blend. The Virginias play an integral role in this blend as well, leading a very nice sweetness that otherwise would leave the smoker feeling unsatisfied.

The woody, smoky, earthy, buttery sweet and mildly sour floral Turkish is the lead component. The smoky, woody sweet Cyprian latakia is a supporting player. The Virginias offer a little earth and grass along with some dark fruit and citrus in the third slot. The Maryland is a flavor carrier and doesn’t affect your experience. The taste is closer to medium than it is to full. The nic-hit is just past the mild to medium level. No chance of bite or harshness. Burns cool and clean at a slightly slow pace with deeply rich, consistent sweet and more savory flavor. Leaves little moisture in the bowl, and needs just over an average number of relights. Has a pleasantly lingering campfire after taste and room note. Not quite an all day smoke. Three and a half stars.
