Having now smoked five bowls of this wonderful stuff, I believe I have found a Lat-heavy blend that I actually like. "Actually like" is selling this blend short - I love this stuff. The mixture is about 50% Latakia, with the other half of the mix being comprised of Kentucky, Virginia, and Oriental leaf. It has the flavor I've come to expect from a good English blend - but with a much heavier dose of Latakia than I normally prefer. However, in the case of MacB Vintage Syrian, I think it is done very well. I attribute this to the use of Syrian Latakia instead of Cyprus Latakia. There is a huge difference between the two, so I've discovered. The tin note is just wonderful, and it smokes really well in a cob (and that is important since it seems like I rarely smoke my briars anymore), It comes in bulk at a really great price, and it has a room note that I'd actually describe as pleasant. This is one that I'm planning to cellar. You owe it to yourself to try this one.
