    Had me a good surprise today then got slaped in the face with the same surprise, checked the mail when i got home and inside was a big white envelope with my name on it and inside was a 1.5 oz. tin of tobacco. I dont really know where it came from but was pretty excited all the same, untill i opened it and the nasty stank of latikia kicked my nostrils ass lol. So at least if i have to dump it in the trash it wont hurt to bad cause it was free, i really dont see how you lat lovers do it just the smell alone curls my toes lol.

    Mysterious tobacco shows up unannounced and out of nowhere? Wish that happened to me more often heh! You never know until you smoke it though, you might end up liking it after all!

    Latakia is excellent if treated sensibly by the blender. Some even enjoy Lat bombs, but I imagine that would be like working up to Ardbeg Ten from Macallan Fine Oak.

    Hmm... well sometimes, the worse it smells, the better it tastes in a pipe! (and the better it smells, the worse it tastes) https://pipesmokersforum.com/forum/public/style_emoticons/default/naughty.gif

    Funny, i had the same opinion on Latakia though it has changed in the last few weeks. I realized i like it somehow. It is a 'real' tobacco. If it is in your pipe there's no doubt, you will feel it. And sometimes help identifing other type of tobaccos in a latak mixture.

    Just try it when you'll be in a mood that none of your usual tobaccos satisfy you..

    So to speak. Some can't stand an Islay, and
    are content with their Speysides until there
    are no more left. However, I completely
    understand your analogy. As one who
    has had both of those, it is an acquired
    taste after a long hourney down both
    roads.

    I would also suggest that you trade it or give it away. No sense wasting good tobacco. Out of the 20 blends I have right now, 14 are Lat. Blends/bombs.

    Never toss a tobacco! Trade it/give it away. :thankyou: Your tastes and mine obviously differ...I'd *LOVE* to add another lat-bomb to the rotation! Aromatics are a rarity in my cellar, though there are a couple. You have a ton of friends here, all with diverse likes/dislikes. tobacco will never go to waste here........

    To each his/her own. I only smoke a light to medium latika english mixtures. I found long ago mature va's and most aro's make me sick.I kind of enjoy not being on a constant tobacco quest anymore. :bling:
