Blending - Latakia

A ribbon-cut Cyprian Latakia, made from Smyrna as a base tobacco, with an intensely smoky aroma and flavor. I love the subtle undercurrent of leather and (not sweet) anise. It’s wonderfully rich, low in nicotine with a very cool burn.

Latakia
I use it in different blands, to give them the latakia flavor that I like, thank you, I had some difficulties to order it on line, so I called on the phone and Sal was very helpful.

Magic Stuff!
I added this to one of my Captain Black mixtures (4 oz Dark, 2 oz Royal, and 22 grams Latakia). Cool - smooth. Easily my #1.

Sprinkle magic...
Sprinkle a pinch of this in any aromatic and be amazed. I use it in Molte Dolce, and it's incredible. Love it.

Latakia
Very good, smoky taste and smell. I add sparingly to almost all of my English blends.

Latakia Fan
Used blending Latakia to bump light Latakia blends with ratios of 1:2, 1:3 & 1:4. Results were great to fine tune my favorite Latakia blends.

Strong yet smooth
Everyone said it was too strong to smoke straight, I thought it was pleasant. Very rich. Would recommend if youre into strong tobacco

The Pipe Tobacco I've Dreamed Of
From the time I was young I wanted nothing more than to sit and smoke a pipe with my grandfather or take a smoke break while on a grand quest like so may fabled heroes. After reaching legal age I have been smoking my pipe for 11 years and the Latakia is the exact tobacco I imagined in those young days. The aroma of leather and hardwood instantly engulfed me and gave me the satisfaction for which I've always been searching.

Rollin' smoke & Kickn' it up
If you want more Nic\Bolder Smoke\Fuller Flavor, then, add more Latakia.... Also, helps to cool down the hottest burning tobacco's. So, if you like English Blends or just like to experiment, added this to your cart, as well as Perique. If the price seems high, "IT'S NOT", considering how far just a little bit goes. Latakia usually comes fairly dry & Perique on the moist side (This Is Normal) If you're just getting started or still on a mission for that perfect blend, you'll benifit greatly by getting a few ounces of each.

Adds Class To Any Tobacco.
I have been using this latakia for awhile now. I mostly use it to spice up my other tobaccos. It makes any tobacco taste extra good especially by just adding a bit to any brand. I don't smoke any brand without adding some to it. Try a large pinch at first and add more as you decide how much you enjoy in each ounce of what ever you smoke.

Excellent!
I like Latakia, and this is a good one. I use a pinch in some of the blends I smoke to improve the taste and aroma. Just takes a small amount to really make a difference.

First try lat
I ve only been piping about a year. So I'm still trying out a lot of things. A little goes a long way, and if you use too much it will take over the entire bowl. It certainly smokes a lot dryer than aromatics. I don't see any reason not to like this tobacco.

This tobacco was exactly what I expected
Smoky & bold, dark, but rich. I mix a touch in with a little bit of Virginia flue, 2 smidgens of Cavendish, a couple flakes of burley, before you know it all my friends want to know where I get my fancy tobacco. Of course I tell them that I imported all the way from somewheres far away and makes it by hand very carefully from all these different ingredients. But now you know my secret.

Adds A Nice Touch.....
Purchased a small amount of this latakia to try. I put a pinch or two in other tobaccos I had and really added a nice touch to them. Just order another four ounces.

Adds an interesting complexity
We all buy so-so tobaccos that are not terrible, not bad enough to throw out but not great. I mix in a pinch of this stuff and it helps any nonaromatic biwl

Potent but pleasant
Marvelous addition to add smokiness and a lingering, pleasant finish to personal blends. Tames the sweetness of OTC blends and makes an everyday blend a good evening blend. Use sparingly. A little goes a long way.

Latakia is awesome
I add a bit more Latakia to Lane 1Q ... it is "just my thing" ... I am no blending expert, but I cannot get enough of the flue-cured stuff (Latakia).

Terrific customer service
When an item was backordered, the folks at PipesandCigars expedited the shipment.

Good Cross-Section of Blending Tobaccos
I ordered all pipe tobacco: blending Smyrna, Izmir, Turkish Ribbon, Latakia, and Perique. First, the good: The Smyrna took me by surprise. It most definitely was not a typical Oriental. It was dark and very sweet, and left a more pleasant room note than any aromatic. It reminded me of the cotton candy machines at the county fair. It is meant for blending, but I would be happy to smoke it straight as my primary blend. I am going to order more after the holidays. The Perique was also a pleasant surprise. Near as I can tell, this is "Arcadian" Perique, i.e. tobacco grown outside of St James Parish but processed in the same manner as traditional St James Perique. If I had to guess, I would say that this started off as a good burley before it was processed. It is the mildest smoking Perique that I have ever tried, so much so that you can comfortably smoke it straight. It also has a sweeter taste than other blending Periques that I have tried. However, despite its mild character, it still has all of the desired qualities of blending Perique, including the "cooked fruit" and mushroom taste. It leaves a fairly strong hint of lilac in the room. The only problem (if you want to call it a problem) is that this is long-cut tobacco, which makes it a little difficult for blending. The Izmir was an exotic Oriental. Besides the usual Oriental qualities, it also had an incense-like quality that reminded me of the incense used in the Greek Orthodox Church. I mixed it up with a burley base and some Cyprian Latakia, and I was very pleased with the result. The Turkish ribbon was also a good tobacco, but it was more characteristic of a standard Oriental. Nothing really to write home about. The Bad: I gave my review four stars out of five for two reasons. One is that the Latakia I ordered was out of stock, but they removed it from my bill, so no harm no foul there. Two is that the Izmir and the Turkish Ribbon arrived bone-dry. You can fix somewhat that by throwing in a few Humidipaks, but it would be better if the tobacco arrived with the proper moisture content already. So, overall, I was pleased with my order, and I will definitely be ordering more.

Nirvana!!!!
OMG! Heaven in a pipe! I love Latakia, and this stuff is fabulous! I smoke it neat, and think I'll also use it to put life back into those baccys which have lost that "vital spark"! This stuff is really quite magical, and so inexpensive!!! I've been searching for a replacement for The Balkan Sobranie (all versions) and I think I've found it, at least the building-blocks to make my own!!!! Thanks P&C!!!

Customer Testimonials
Wow... First time trying this and I love it. I can't help but be reminded of Frankincense resin burning over charcoal. It's uncanny. I look forward to blending this with the perique I just received with it.
RM of East Pittsburgh, PA
I love the aroma and use it in several blends. I keep a small jar just to sniff and grin.
JB of Seguin, TX
I am just learning how to construct my own blends. So far, I am quite pleased with the Latikia and I like both the smokiness and the flavor it adds to the blends I have tried thus far. On the down side, the aroma put off by the un-smoked tobacco is so intense that one can smell it all over the house even though it is double packed in sealed plastic bags -- my wife does not like the aroma (although I do).
