This remarkable blend provides a multi-layered, rich taste experience. The highest quality Syrian Latakia combines with small amounts of Cyprian to form the base for an exquisite array of rare and precious Orientals - sweet Drama, exotic Yenidje and more. Red Virginias complement the blend, adding sweetness, richness, strength, and creaminess. Blended by Fred Hanna
I had to try due to all the great reviews, but I am sorry to say that it just did not work for me. Tasted flat and left a terrible aftertaste and dryness in my mouth. Your mileage may vary but this is not something that I would buy again.
Fantastic evening smoke.

Wilderness is an excellent and very well rounded blend. Complex and latakia'y enough to be savored but tame enough to be enjoyed daily. Best enjoyed while in the woods next to a campfire, of course.

This is an exquisite blend that smokes cool and smooth. Wonderful flavors, very complex. I like to venture away from base camp once or twice a day and bathe in its smokiness, enjoying the wildlife and brisk cool winter air gently tossing my grizzly... Read More beard as I puff. This is good stuff, I keep a few tins buried away at all times. Read Less

Sorry to steal from the previous reviewer with the title word of 'wonderful', but it's a good word to describe this blend. I hesitated to write this as I haven't purchased enough for my own stores to feel comfortable with this blend getting so... Read More popular that it's hard to find. But I know my review won't change the current stars, so I felt comfortable enough to share some words in the hope that someone may find this mix and enjoy it as much as I do.
To me, this tobacco blend is the perfect mix of English and Orient. It's very well-rounded complexity is complimented by the Syrian Latakia...enough to taste the mellow smokiness but not so much to overpower the exotic Orientals and other twelve or so tobaccos that participate in this medley. The complexity can best be describe with a comparison of good cognac to cheap brandy. The depth of flavor echoes forward from the instance flame touches leaf until only ash remains (and well afterward, too, from the lingering nuances that cling to my hand, face, and beard). The room note is gentler than other latakia blends, so much so my wife asked me to go back 'to the other one' (my nightly Wilderness bowl) after a one day switch-up bowl of Westminter.
So if you're in the mood for something much more complex than most monotone smokes, give Wilderness a shot. Read Less
WILDERNESS is Wonderful!!

I had the pleasure today of sampling my first bowl of "Wilderness", blended by Fred Hanna. This is terrific stuff!! In his book, "The Perfect Smoke", Fred cautions that lovers of Latakia Bombs will be unsatisfied with this blend.... Read More Well, I love a Latakia Bomb as much as the next guy, and I'm not just talkin' some Syrian Scud. Well, I found deep satisfaction in this rich, complex blend of 12 leaves, which by the way includes about 35% Syrian Latakia. I think Fred's intending to warn us LBers, if we come to this blend expecting or hoping to find another Latakia Bomb, this will not satisfy. Well, I HIGHLY recommend Wilderness to anyone and everyone. I ordered my first sleeve today. Home Run, Fred - touch em all!! Read Less
