Latakia Flake blends Cyprian Latakia with Dark
Fired Kentucky for a predictably full-bodied smoke. However, some unflavored
Cavendish is added to tame the other ingredients a bit. I’d expect a smooth,
earthy smoke with a musty room note.
The body of this tobacco strikes me from the
first light, and the flavors of earthy with sweet notes distracts from the body
once the bowl gets going. The Dark Fireds offer me a subtle sweetness with a
heavy dose of earthiness which the Latakia definitely enhances. I did not
notice much from the Cavendish except for smoothing the smoke about mid-bowl.
