This hardy Dan Tobacco blend celebrates the oldest battleship in the U.S. Navy, Old Ironsides, the USS Constitution. This blend is a Latakia lover's dream. A high percentage of Cyprian Latakia is complimented by Kentucky, Oriental, and Virginia tobaccos. Cake aged for twelve weeks, this flake cut blend is full and cool smoking.
I'm a latakia lover, the more the better. Ironsides lives up to the description. This is my favorite tobacco. It stands up against those hard to get brands. You know which brands I'm referring to. I've been stocking up on Ironsides because when the w... Read Moreord gets out how great this tobacco is, it will fly off the shelves and become hard to get Read Less
This is the best Latakia flake I’ve ever had. Hands down. I’m only sorry I didn’t order it sooner. Tin is a nice size, and has attractive historical artwork covering it. The flake is a perfect consistency upon opening. Smells typical of Latakia, bu... Read Moret the smoke is what puts this blend at the top; very cool smoking with a huge flavor, but not overwhelming. Will treasure it this Christmas and in the future! Read Less
Beautiful presentation, full bodied, Latakia heavy and complex- smoky and nutty. Lacks a bit of sweetness and somewhat drying but that's much more of a stylistic preference than ding on this superbly crafted blend
It should be evident that this blend is for those who truly love Latakia.
Tin aroma: Imagine a forest floor charred from a recent fire is starting to grow back and the morning dew has moistened the rich earth beneath the smoked bark creating a deep ... Read Moredark wet velvety musk.
Taste: The latakia is boldly forward while the other tobaccos play an essential yet supporting role. It is not a complex blend but neither boring. Its somewhat lack of complexity is made up by its dedication to a lush, thick and creamy delivery of plentiful clouds of smoke.
There are some things left better without complexity…
If you enjoy your coffee black, your chocolate dark and your meat gamey you will enjoy Old Ironsides. Read Less
Very heavy latakia. The flake rubbed out nicely and was a good moisture level for smoking straight out of the tin. If there are other flavors besides the smokey latakia, I did not detect them. It smoked cool and the tin art is awesome too, obviously.... Read MoreRead Less
So far I've only smoked this baccy in one size bowl, this is one fine balanced blend. I can savor all the different tobaccos with the exception of the burly. First time I was expecting a strong latakia punch as many of the other reviews stated, inste... Read Moread what I get is the beautiful Virginia's leading the way with the orientals and latakia supporting the whole way through. At times these three trade off in the front seat. I really like that as it keeps the smoke entertaining till the bottom of the bowl. For me this is medium in body and can be a all day smoke. I really like this and was happy I bought 6 tins. Will be buying more. Read Less
I'm on my 3rd Tin and this tobacco always brings a high level of consistency. Each initial light I'm transported to a campfire in a foreign land. Smokey wood smells that I'm not accustomed to. With orientals leaving a tingle in my nose, and the su... Read Morettle hidden burley nutty fig taste, I'm always captive to this orchestra of notes! Read Less
Wow, u know its a lat bomb when the latakia has a gritty powderyness to it. Wonderful Va can be smelled through the lat in the tin. Smokes well w few relights.
