    Totally not a Lat blend, but after smelling it I really wanted this particular Mac B haha. I'll probably end up getting Man's Best Friend.

    Peter Stokkebye's English luxury is a really, really great tasting English that is a mild intro into the Latikia world. I still rank it in my top two English blends. Plus it's inexpensive always a plus.

    Arcadia, another one in McClelland's 221B series, is tasty but mild English blend. I believe it is Va and orientals. Latakia is not in it or if it is it is only a side note. For me it is a great start of the day English style. Except for those days that require a good nic hit to turn the starter.

    Well I tried Sutliff's CD blend (my friend got me a tin of it and Man's Best Friend for Christmas). I can tell that I'm probably not going to be a huge Lat fan, haha. I liked it, but it wasn't my absolute favorite and it only had a little latakia. So I have mixed expectations about the MBF. I think I'll stick to burleys and cavendish, with lat blends being smoked only on appropriate days.

    Well.... months later, here I am, a fan of Latakia. CD blend is killing it. I smoke about a bowl of it a day. So woodsy and.... campfire-y (word?). Must... Get... More
