BS-005 is the richest Latakia blend that Lane Limited ever made. It was taken off the market a number of years ago, but through the efforts of Leonard Wortzel, it's back! Lane Limited has never made a tobacco with this much Latakia in it, so if you want a full-bodied, cool-smoking Latakia blend at a very reasonable price, BS-005 is it!
I'm a Latakia affecionato and this blend lives up to its reputation for being smooth and rich. It has earned a spot in my rotation. Can't go wrong with this one if you love Latakia.
Very mild English blend. Ideal for the beginner. Great room note that will please the ladies. An all day smoke. Recommend. Great price.
Bought along other english blends, this one was the "lightest", pretty decent IMO and I would recommend it for a first try on the english style, not overwhelming like others.
Good smoke! The Lat. really hits you in the nose when you open the bag but it smokes smooth and cool. I think the Orientals are what I like most in this blend. Very tasty.
Has a lot of flavor compared to the Hgl which is also good just not as strong as the BS-005 this smokes very cool and also works with a strong cup of black coffee.
BRAVO(applause).. complete satisfaction from packing to tapping it out to load again. also my wife and daughter didn't mind the smell either so thats always a winner in my house .... if your getting this then get lane 1Q also both are winners
After about 10 bowls of this I am neglecting my aromatics. It is a very robust earthy smoky flavor. Easy to smoke. Clean on the palate. But it punches you in the face with robustivity (I made up this word). Nuff said! $15 a Pound get out a here!
I usually smoke Lane BCA or 1Q, but have been trying other blends lately. I bought BS-005 (Lane really ought to explain where they get these names from!) and will be buying it again. I do not have the Knowledge or taste buds to describe fruit and nuts of a flavor, but it is a step in strength above my usual blends and has an enjoyable flavor. I like it better than EMP or Nightcap. Stays lit, burns to a fine ash. Good Smoke.
I was looking for an all day English blend and of course I was sucked in by this awesome deal where I would get a free pipe if I bought a pound of tobacco. So needless to say I got some and Lane has hit this on the mark! If your lookin for an all day English buying anything short of a pound is pure madness! Cool and rich from beginning to end and mild to medium for all day smoking.
This is a really good blend. No bite. I enjoy the Latakia blends more in cooler weather. This is good now (summer) but I expect it to be great later in the fall and winter.
