Named for the famed winding, twisting street in San Francisco, Lombard starts with a base of Red and Bright Virginias. It is then enhanced with American 'condimental' leaf, including an angel's share of Perique. The G. L. Pease twist in this Lombard? A delicate breath of Cyprus Latakia is added for a whisper of smokiness and a slightly deeper flavor. A gentle introduction to Latakia for the Virginia smoker, or just a delightful change of pace.

I will definitely keep it in stock in my cellar. Read Less

one of my favorite parts of this smoking experience is the whisp of smoke that comes from the bowl, wafting under my nose, it smells like bbq ribs being smoked on the grill. no kidding! Read Less
