    What's you saying friendo. No lovin' for Latakia on this forum? I'm sure we got some that love Syrian and Cyprian. Or am I just a noob and don't know better?:bag:

    No, you should get a lot of good recommendations for Latakia heavy blends!

    C&D Star of the East. Only smoked it once but got 4 ounces jarred up. Very enjoyable it was too.

    The one and only blend I've had thus far with Latakia has been Just For Him's "Shortcut to Mushrooms."

    Lots of folks recommend it and when I had a chance to visit their shop in person I had to pick up an ounce.

    I enjoyed it ok, not sure if Lats are my thing though. The wife certainly did not approve. ;)

    Not really my domain but I remember Dunhill's Nightcap being particularly stiff.

    Definitely add Shortcut to Mushrooms to that list. You can get an ounce to try just for a few bucks. It's a good one for sure!

    I love Steven's blends and I love the meerschaum only reserve. Try Irishman's 5 0'clock for a rich latakia blend.

    Larry's Blend from pipes and cigars.com is very heavy on the latakia. Almost too heavy for me.
