A must have spice for all you home blenders
Peter Szekszardi (Budapest, ) 7/18/2014 4:18 PM
Although having smoked a great variety of Latakia blends throughout the years smoking straight Latakia was still educational. Due to smoking Latakia only in blends I haven't had an absolutely clean picture what Latakia really is. This is not meant to be smoked straight but as a condiment. Nevertheless I did enjoy this mono-dimensional but very clean and straightforward smoke. The tobacco burns very easily, the smoke is super cool and it has a low Nicotine content. I'm looking forward to - hopefully - enhancing other blends and also creating my own little English blend as well. But I'm also sure that this was not the last time I smoked this Latakia straight.

Review of: McClelland's Blending Latakia

McClelland's Latakia, is precisely as stated, a Straight Latakia tobacco, intended for mixing into other blends for an exceptional savory journey in the bowl of your favorite pipe. Smoking it direct will not be pleasurable, I have done so and it is singular in dimension. Added to McClelland's Bombay Extra, already a savory smoke, and if you enjoy Latakia, it is a blockbuster. The 100 gram tin augments 1 pound of Revelation-Match tobacco, superbly. From what I am to understand, Syrian Latakia is no longer available, and if this information is correct, well.., the Cypriat version of Latakia is a tad less, but all the same, esquisite. Personally, I do prefer tobaccos which can be utilized as "wife repellent", and you should know that the unsmoked product in the tin, smells poorly, until smoked. Tones which compliment wood fires are so earthy and comforting. Mixed with other blends of pipe smoking mixtures, certainly, you will not regret it. Very mature and complex; Very masculine.
