Was wondering if someone can help me on tobacco blends with a good amount of Latakia?
You asked for it now... the Latakia aficionados will use a lot of bandwidth on this one...
...well, Dunhill 965 comes to mind. As do a litany of Balkan blends.
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?
No, you should get a lot of good recommendations for Latakia heavy blends!
Ok, i wasn't sure as like i say, i'm 100% a noob with tobacco. But i do like Dunhill Night Cap. So just looking for more quality blends with Latakia in it.
the so far above mentioned and I would add Pirate Kake and Ten Russians to that list.
C&D Billy Budd and Dunhill Nightcap.
C&D Star of the East. Only smoked it once but got 4 ounces jarred up. Very enjoyable it was too.
3 Oaks Syrian
My TAD wishlist is getting more lengthy than my Cellar list.
ok.. looks like my list is coming along... Thanks guys
1. Capt. Earls- 10 Russians..
2. Dunnhill nightcap
3. Dunhill 965
4. C&D pirate Kake
5. C&D Billy Bud
6.McClelland 3 oaks syrian
7. C&D star of east
Ok, looks like i should be good for now.. But if you know of a good one please post it up..
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!
currently enjoying the meerschaum only from http://houseofcalabash.com/tobaccos and I have 2 oz of the meer only reserve waiting for next XDXD!!
great taste and lots of latakia ( i think!!)
Stokkybe's Balkan Supreme is pretty lat heavy...delicious to boot...
I love Steven's blends and I love the meerschaum only reserve. Try Irishman's 5 0'clock for a rich latakia blend.
nice will do, thanks for the tip. Anyway i need to try ALL his tobacco's lol XD!!
Larry's Blend from pipes and cigars.com is very heavy on the latakia. Almost too heavy for me.
