For a cigar smoker I think latakia is the way to go - Its a stronger flavor and extremely relaxing, that virginia stuff does not compare!

I smoked a one ounce block of Pirate Kake in shot order now, in a variety of pipes. I am a Latakia lover. English blends are my favorite treat. It's my humble opinion that C&D has the absolute highest quality widely available Latakia on the market... Read More
Outstanding
April 22, 2018
Product: Cornell & Diehl Pirate Kake 2oz
Wow, this is heavy in Latakia. Rather than overwhelm you it works really well. It burns well and forms a nice ash. It's not harsh, there's a certain smokiness which has it's edged rounded by a creamy finish. This is an exceptional tobacco.
Almost perfect!

My new favorite. Been a pipe smoker for over 40 years and Pirate Kake is some of the best ever. Smoked in a new Missouri corncob to understand better the flavors and subtleties. Will buy more and experiment to see what aging does.
Enchanting!

I’ll taste Latakia for awhile after smoking this, but that’s not to say it’s an unpleasant smoke. The burley and orientals are lost in the sea of Latakia, but I suppose they temper that robust smoke to remind you that you aren’t smoking a bowl of str... Read More

The best latakia tobacco ever. It's the taste of darkness. Basaltic, spicy, dark chocolate, medium nicotine. This is a definite tobacco. I'll order the third tin soon.

Nothing better
October 18, 2018
Product: Cornell & Diehl Pirate Kake 8oz
Not a good tobacco for a newbie or someone who likes aromatics. However, there is nothing better than this for Latakia -Lovers. And, I mean nothing. Be prepared for a punch-in-yje-mouth Latakia kick. Smoke this slowly.

I'm a big fan of C & D. I think they make some excellent blends and this is one of them. It's definitely loaded with latakia but it just doesn't overwhelm the blend. This is one you should try.

Not nearly as overpowering as some say. My tin was dated from 2015. This lights well and burns at a great pace. Strength is medium, body is medium, flavour is medium plus. Good smoke, I will keep it on hand as much as possible

If you love the taste of Latakia this is for you, depending on how you break apart the cake is smokes differently each time. The room note is smokey and sweet all around a amazing smoke.

This tobacco is one of my favourites. If you love Latakia, give it a shot. The crumble kake really helps the flavor profile and to keep the moisture higher so it doesn't dry out. I don't even jar this stuff, just keep it in the container. It's not so... Read More

I bet this would be more popular if it didn't have the Jolly Roger and the mention of 75% Latakia content on the tin. As far as C&D's products go, Greg Pease's Quiet Nights recipe has more of that creosote/Latakia flavor up-front. With that said, it ... Read More

Latakia Overdose
October 06, 2016

This blend lacks balance and should not be smoked by a newbie wishing to try their first English tobacco. The bulk of my purchase is going to my cellar for aging, which will mellow out this Latakia bomb.

I love laktakia, oriental bases, but the excess of Laktakia made this blend somewhat bland after a 50 gram tin. It is true to its word, but C&D could tinker the blend and do better.

Pirate kake is by far the smokiest, most contemplative Latakia blend out there - it tastes great and is perfect for sitting in the cool night air and taking time off from the world. I always have some with me.
