I just wanted to share this with other Smoking Pipe customers. I received an email Keith at customer service. He read my comments on this blend and made the gracious offer to take back my tins of this blend for a full refund since it has changed from... Read More Syrian to Cypress Latakia. Now if that is not outstanding customer service I don't know what is. I have always had the very best experience with Smoking Pipes and this is just one more reason why I always use them for any of my tobacco as well as pipes from time to time. Well done Smoking Pipes!! Read Less
This is the pure joy for Latakia lover. Packaging says it is a quality Syrian Latakia for blending purposes and can be enjoyed straight if desired. Well I must say it should be smoked straight!

I feel like I have to keep one tin in my stock for all times. Read Less

The sticker is on the back and small saying pure Cypress Latakia. I guess Germany has run out of Syrian Latakia. T...

I am truly disappointed that I bought 7 tins for mixing but I guess you just can't get pure mixing Syrian Latakia any longer. Just wanted set the record straight. Read Less
Everything I have researched about this blend is that it is Syrian Latakia NOT Cypress Latakia. I am unsure why smoking pipes is saying it is Latakia from Cypress. Even McConnell says it's Syrian Latakia. My nose tells me it sure smells like Syprian ... Read MoreLatakia. I add to my Frog Morton to punch it up a little as well as a few blends I play around with to enhance my pleasure. I am a Latakia lover but only Syrian Latakia as the Cypress is too weak in the sweet wood smoke flavor I love. You should buy this with confidence that it should be Syrian Latakia. Read Less
