Mac Baren: Latakia Rolls 3.5oz

Product Number: 003-039-0116

Encased in a wrapper of whole Virginia leaves, Mac Baren's limited-edition Latakia Rolls features a core of spicy Dark-Fired Kentucky and naturally sweet Virginias, alongside a significant percentage of smoky Latakia. The blend is then rolled by hand and stored for five days in wooden crates before being sliced into fine coins. Like nearly all of Mac Baren's spun-cut mixtures, maple sugar is used as an adhesive to bind the rope together, but it is otherwise quite pure in natural flavor, elevating each individual component to the attention of the palate.

Latakia Rolls beautifully showcases the natural character of each varietal, offering a pleasant balance of sweet, spicy, and smoky notes; the incense-like character of the Latakia complements the Dark-Fired's tart, mesquite flavors to produce a smoke that's incredibly complex yet smooth on the draw. No one flavor or component dominates, the cut instead offering a more blended, married profile regardless of how it's prepared in a pipe. Whether folded and stuffed, stacked, or rubbed out into a fine shag, Latakia Rolls is the all-day, spun-cut English blend we've all been waiting for.

Product: Mac Baren Latakia Rolls 3.5oz
Just received my tin and am smoking it in my Savinelli roma 320 KS. This is a wonderful tobacco blend that is mild , smooth and tasty. It burns slow and needs few delights. The components meld together in a mildly sweet and spicy way. I hope this bec... Read More

Product: Mac Baren Latakia Rolls 3.5oz
As stated this is a very well balanced Latakia blend, it came out of the tin at the perfect humidity and the gently rubbed out coins lit flawlessly and tasted like heaven. The Latakia is very present obviously but well controlled in unison with the V... Read More

Seriously. I would love to add like another 10 to my cellar. Wonderful tin note, great flavor top to bottom. Light roast coffee, slightly burnt caramel/brown sugar, cardamom/nutmeg, bread, smokey, creamy, and moments of floral incense and earth. I've... Read More

Product: Mac Baren Latakia Rolls 3.5oz
Take this review with a grain of salt. I am a new pipe smoker, and this is my first experience with Latakia. I have smoked cigars for several years so no stranger to good tobacco. The tin note, really really turned me off. It was like being slapp... Read More

If you ask my wife, what is the one tobacco she thinks of when she thinks of me. Latakia rolls. I don’t have enough of this. I have smoked this all day, every day, and I can’t get tired of it. I love the smell, taste, the way it smokes, never any iss... Read More

Smooth, balanced, flavorful and tart. Somewhere between Late Evening and Plum Pudding. Very enjoyable slow smoke. Look up coin packing technique. It's imperative with this one for full enjoyment.
好似一杯被掺了水的丝袜奶茶

2.5 饱满度 2.5 室韵3.5 用了加勒比卷的制作工艺,填草点火都很友好。燃烧斗温烟气也都没的说。初段有一些胡椒刺激感但中前段开始就减弱到很低的水平。前中后段的变化不大。总体感觉就是被稀释了浓度的巴尔干调配,好像一杯掺了水的丝袜奶茶 欢迎去B站关注“躲在厕所抽斗的克里斯”,里面有详细测评

All of mac baren’s coins have this indescribable note, sharp hay-like, delicious. This one is no exception. Would not call it latakia rolls though, as latakia is more of a condiment here

Product: Mac Baren Latakia Rolls 3.5oz
The Kentucky Dark Fired is balanced very well with the Latakia and VA. None take a leading role. The Latakia (smoky, campfire, leather, cedar-essence), balances with the sweet and sour, oak-laden, tangy Kentucky Dark Fired. The VA are tangy, woody... Read More

Smoking this for the first time last night I was reminded of the moniker for the state of West Virginia: "Almost Heaven." This tobacco in a 25 year old Cooke billiard, supports the previously positive reactions. Too bad this wasn't availabl... Read More
