Peterson - Nightcap 50g
First time I tasted a Latakia blend was just horrendous experience and told myself never try that again. Nightcap changed that with one puff. Even I got a terrible headache first few times I smoked it, I just loved the strong, full bodied taste. More I smoked this the better I liked it and even the headaches stopped. For anyone who is not entirely sure about Latakia blends, try this one and don't give up after first few bowls.
Cornell & Diehl - Golden Days of Yore 2oz
Nah maybe next time
This was not as flavorful as I wanted it to be. I want my holiday blends to be an in your face aromatic and this was not it. The flavor was nice, but just too subtle. Good, not great
Cornell & Diehl - Apples & Cream
Mild, creamy, fruity, I like it a lot and will get it again Smoke It.
Mac Baren - 7 Seas Royal 3.5oz
I am pleased with this mellow tobacco. I love the decorative tin it comes in. Will cherish for a lifetime. Anchors Away!
Peterson - Sunset Breeze 50g
Great taste and note
Not a lot of casing and needs to be smoked slow and cool but zero tongue bite.
BriarWorks - Back Down South 2oz
Kind of OK
Tobacco was ok, it has a very strong sweet smell and no sweet taste. The smoke is Farley smooth and burns smooth if you want a straight Virginia taste you might like this blend. The best part was the Mason jar the blend came in.
Mac Baren - Plumcake 3.5oz
Latakia for the aromatic lover
Very good tobacco. The tin when opened hits you with some Latakia and a sweet burley type smell. Not much to say about his if you enjoy Latakia. It's a dry smooth smoking blend similar to any Balkan blend with sweetness added. Roommate very pleasant as well
Rattray's - Exotic Passion 100g
The tin note is heavily orange, the smoke is light and fruity, and the after taste is like fruit stripe gum. The tin itself is really nice and the tobacco presentation makes it feel like something special. Ghosts a pipe instantly so be prepared. I will always have some of this on hand.
Cornell & Diehl - Pirate Kake 2oz
One of the best Latakia blends I've ever smoked.aka Latakia Bomb..... excellent.
Mac Baren - Dark Twist 3.5oz
Good tobacco flavor. The small coins are easy to fold and stuff, lights well, and is a satisfying smoke that burns clean all the way to the bottom of the bowl.
