    I love the taste of latakia. To date I like nightcap just well but would like to try something more adventurous. Any suggestions?

    Ten Russians.
    To paraphrase my post on this subject from a few months ago:
    it's like sitting at an East German bus stop downwind from a junkyard fire, drinking Ukranian vodka with a bunch of guys wearing cheap leather coats.

    I back up the suggestions of Pirate Kake and 10 Russians. Both are masterly crafted blends that have an ton of lat and yet behave themselves like a well made blend should. Neither will disappoint.

    Biggest lat bomb I've ever had is called Limey Bastard (pardon the word, but that's what it's called). It is SERIOUS stuff.

    Pirate Kake is probably the strongest Lat blend I've tried. Would like to try some straight Lat, just for the heck of it. IIRC, PK is 70% Lat.

    Not sure how this could be unless we arent talking about the same thing. I tried Pirate Kake and it was nowhere as smokey as LB.

    Date- bought some squadron leader this afternoon on a whim. No where near the lat as night cap but on the bright side, it behaved quite well.
