This is latakia heavy, to be sure. It was very dry out of the tin, although the tin was well sealed. I had it aging in the cellar for almost two years until I recently opened it. It lights well, stays lit, and burns to a clean, dry ash. It can get ho... Read Moret and it can leave an "ashy" aftertaste that isn't that bad, but is noticeable. This blend is all right, but I think I'll move on. Read Less
Fantastic tobacco, once I rehydrated it. It arrived extremely dry, so I dumped it all out of the tin onto paper towels and gave it a little distilled water misting, let it sit for an hour or two, then back in the tin it went. It's a really good Balka... Read Moren. Lots of sweet flavors and a medium smokiness throughout. This will be a mainstay in my cellar for sure! Read Less
I generally don't expect much from tobaccos with names like BS-005, from mega producers of tobacco like Lane Limited.

It comes to you fairly dry in th tin (that's a good thing) so it's just the way I prefer. The tin aroma is typical, not exceptional. It lights instanly and the flavor is just what you'd expect from a classic English. But there's something about this blend that I love so much that I haven't stopped smoking it for days. Bowl after bowl. It's flavorful, rich with the perfect amount of Latakia. It defines, for me, what an "all day" smoke is. Now I need to purchase this in bulk, to see how it compares to the tinned version. Highly recommended. Made me rediscover what I've always loved about English blends, after taking an extended break, smoking VA/PER's and VA/Burley blends for a while. Read Less
Beats All the Other Lane Limited tobaccos hands down
Confession- I'm a Latakia lover and this tobacco has more in it than all the other blends that Lane makes. It's smooth richness brings out the bliss in me. Earned a spot in my rotation with top honors.
