    So far i have been getting into flakes, and have been enjoying flakes with latakia in them. what are some other ones besides SG navy and i guess SG choco has Lat in it.

    I've been enjoying a lot of flake tobaccos lately, like Irish Flake, Dunhill Flake, Orlik Golden Sliced, Erinmore, etc. I watched dublinthedam do a youtube demo on the fold and stuff packing method, and I've found that I really like this technique for smoking them. My question is, are there any...

    I was wondering if someone could clear this up for me. I've read where it contains Cyprian only, Syrian only or a mixture of the two. Could one of the Dunhill experts out there clear this up for me? Thanks!

    More Newb questions here. Is latakia the component in english blends that makes them smell bitter and a bit like burning tires? When I opened my bag of penzance, I definitely got the aroma of smoking the tires for 30 feet down the road in 2nd gear. Not an overly pleasant smell to me. So I...

    So for the last 5 months or so I have been exploring different tobaccos and I fell in love with Latakia, englishes, orientals and various blends. During this time I have been reading a good amount of people here saying how they where looking forward to colder weather to open up some Latakia rich...

    Y'all, What do all y'all feel is the strongest latakia mixture available right now? I'm talking about real mixtures meant to be smoked, and not 100% latakia for blending.

    I was looking at building a cellar stocking order this morning and so many tobaccos sound like they would be really neat blends, but I get as far as the word "latakia" and I stop, stare at the screen, and go "meh". Clicking along my merry way to the next selection. This has been a very standard...

    Hey all, i just finished my 1 oz sample of Walnut (Middleton's) from Rich over at 4noggins. I dont know what it is, but as i am a new piper and just had my first try of english blends, i really love this stuff. Every puff that comes out, my palette is hit with this smoke like taste. Not smoke...

    I am pretty new to pipes and had a question for you guys. Ive read about latakia and the description that comes up most is a campfire or smokey taste. I have noticed that I have liked any of the blends that have latakia so far, but I dont taste the campfire really. I really like the...

    Kinda went out on a limb here to try some new tobaccos. Since i started smoking pipe a year ago ive really been kinda drawn to the Latakia type blends. Frog Morton is an every morning smoke and I usually hit SG Balkan and Peterson Old Dublin at some point in the day. So i figured a Latakia Flake...

    Interesting post from Greg about Syrian latakia today: The Briar & Leaf Chronicles » Blog Archive » Cyprian or Syrian? (Part I) One has to wonder what McClelland or Mac Baren are planning to do about future supplies...

    I have a friend that is looking to get any if any one has any tins left. His father loves the strong Latakia blends and is almost out. I thought I would try here and see what you all got and pass it on to him. let me know if any one can help. Thanks Stephen.

    Latakia, is something I don't see myself trying anytime soon. I stopped in North Dakota at a tobacconist and asked what they recommend as a strong but flavorful blend and the first thing they had me smell IIRC was an almost pure latakia. The smell overwhelmed me, it was all I could smell for a...

    I don't like latakia. There's a soapy taste I get whenever I smoke it that I find very unpleasant. I know, however, that because of this, I am missing out on a great number of highly recommended tobaccos. So, my plan is to start with flavorful blends with very small amounts of latakia and see if...

    Hey gang, One more question about latakia. I love the taste of it. I have a few questions. 1. Is latakia mostly mixed in english blends 2. Do I need a pipe just to smoke latakia with 3. Would I need a different pipe to smoke english, and another for latakia.

    I know its a Vaper and there is no listing of it on the label, but I sure sense Latakia. Anyone?
  17. General Pipe Forum
    The reviewers on TR.com are split pretty evenly on this issue. Some claim Latakia is absolutely present, some claim there is something in there that happens to taste like it, other say it (or something like it) is there but it plays a tertiary role to the VAs and Orientals to the point that you...

    Could someone give it their best try at describing the taste/aroma of latakia? I've read about some folks that really don't like the taste at all, so I'm assuming it's pretty pronounced. I've been thinking of ordering a tin but would like to have an idea first. Thanks! Oh and if you enjoy...

    Lapsang Souchong. Lapsang souchong - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia It's black tea that smoked over a pine fire on bamboo. It's also delicious. After a few cups, I've begun to think of this as the "scotch of teas". Twinings makes a excellent version that you can find in grocery stores...

    I've just run through some of the McClelland Grand Orientals and I have to say I'm intrigued by the subtle intricacies of these varietals. The Classic Samsun is about as different a blend as I've encountered. I'm looking for suggestions to further this exploration. Requiem recommended...
