Great tobacco
The tin I bought was 3.5 years old, amazing smoke, the Virginia's really started adding a sweetness to the latakia. Very pleasant smoke.

Delicious Flake
Latakia Flake has become my favorite pipe tobacco. I tend toward virginia flakes and this to me tastes like a virginia flake with a hint of latakia. There is a sweet tartness that comes out if you place it on the side of your tongue. It needs some drying, but I find most leaf does. No reason to buy the tin when you can get a pound. If you like rich and sweet virginias then this will not disappoint.

Mild and Smooth!
Excellent latakia flavor, but yet on the mild side and with low nicotine level. If you're looking for something on the stronger side, this one might not be for you. This is the perfect mild and easy-going latakia blend - very nice!

Puffing since 1968. Tried beaucoup Latakia blends in those many years. Some are very good: Nightcap, Early Morning but this is by far the best. I love to some this as a stand-alone after bowls of various other non aromatics. Price is great too if you buy the 16 oz. package. Oh and you can blend this with anything that suits you. A fantastic tobacco.
Simply the Best

HH Latakia Flake
Spicy, smoky, I've been trying to smoke it plain, but 50/50 of HH Latakia Flake with Stokkebye's Luxury Navy Flake is the best smoke I've ever had.

Must have some around all the time.
Not my daily smoke, but that doesn't detract from it's great taste. I reserve this for my smaller bowl "flake pipes" as I think the flake size is perfect for folding and stuffing. I give a flake about 2hours drying time for the best results. The taste is rich and smooth, burns well and the aroma has a campfire/cedar/perfume feel to it. Wonderful stuff.

Another masterfully blended..... er blend from Mac Baren.
This is just too perfect. Smokes like a dream taste even better and all be it a latakia blend it is not a bomb! If you like Lat... this is perfect!

Wonderful blend
What a great flake baccy! I find that it's a bit moist out of the tin, but with a little time to dry before I fold and stuff, it's wonderful stuff. Almost "incense-like" in it's taste and aroma, it's become one of my favorite blends. Works best in a small bowl for me.

Delicious and cool, it smokes great by itself but I prefer to mix 1 flake each of this and HH Old Dark Fired for a truly wonderful smoke.

fine flakes
I would give a 4 stars only.Out of tin it was a very promising smell but spoiled but some sourness,test was the same -yes ,camp fire and vine vingr ...bad aftertest.After two weeks i load up bowl and all smoky camp fire and other bad smells has been disapears and flakes turns in too simple oriental smoke instead of latakia...i smoked it in calabash,and it was smooth and cool,yes ,but its even not near to balkan style,maybe my tin was not right not sure,but flake are fine looking one's

Lust for Latakia
Like many pipe smokers i like Latakia. This particular blend is so satisfying that i have to be careful not to have "just one more bowl" before the say ends. I would rate this one in my top 3 tobacco favorites

I found this blend in a pipe shop in Birmingham, "The Briary" who offered free sample. I smoed it and bought it. I liked so much that I reordere it frm Pipe & cigars, my regular shop

It was in stock !!!!
I wish I could write a review worth reading. The amazing thing about this pipe tobacco was that it was available. Thanks.

Latakia Lite
With a name like Latakia Flake, it requires more Latakia

Very good Flake
I really like the HH Latakia Flake. I like to put it in a canning jar right when I get it and leave it alone for a week or 2. This brings the moisture content down and help mellow out the blend a little bit as well. This also helps avoid multiple re-lights. I have yet to smoke an HH blend I didn't like. MacBaren is spot on with this blend. A must try in my opinion.

Nice Flavor, but wish it was stronger.
Tried it for the first time because I’m partial to Latakia. Mild and pleasant, though it reminds me of aromatic tobaccos because of its very mild nature. I like it, but I was hoping it would be heavier on the latakia and have a much stronger flavor.

My favorite Latakia blend by far. I now buy it by the pound & break up about 2oz. at a time into a plastic pouch. An extremely smooth and tasty smoke. I've tried all the HH blends and this is by fa the best tasting.

Mighty fine
I guess my title says it all. I like flake tobacco, and this one instantly went to the top of my list. A bit stout, so beginners beware. It is very easy to keep burning. Like the other Mac Baren flakes, this one is usually just a bit moist right out of the tin. A trifle. If you like Latakia blends give this one a whirl.

A perfect flake that's ready-to-go.
An excellent flake. Strikes me as perfectly matured right out of the tin. Smoky with a light brown-grassy sweetness that builds to dark raisin notes in the last third with the slightest hint of spices throughout. No bite, very clean on the tongue. The smoke gets richer and so does the flavor as the bowl progresses. Definitely worth every penny. Pairs well with a nice dark espresso for a great morning bowl. Trouble is after starting the day with this, you'd better have some nice selections for the rest of the day. This is one hard act to follow.
Customer Testimonials
This one is a winner! Very smooth and smokey with a fantastic taste. Also a very easy flake to rub out. I'll be buying the bigger tin next time, Excellent!
First off, the description on the tin is dead on correct. You get the latakia at first then the sweetness, and some spice from time to time. When i first open this tin I was intoxicated by the smell of the latakia and ( to me ) the fruity aroma smell of this tobacco. I have to say this latakia blend is on my top 5 list to smoke. I will also say this latakia FLAKE is my number 1 flake to smoke ( Top Shelf ). Don`t waste your time buying the 50 grams tin, just go ahead and pay the extra money and get the 100 grams tin. You will not regret it. 4.75 out of 5 stars in my book.
Latakia is upfront with some spiciness from the orientals in the background that blend well with mellow sweet Virginias. Its a nice smoke it is a bit wet out of the tin I would recommend sitting on this for awhile before smoking. If you like smokey Latakia blends you will like this smoke. I would buy this again but buy the bigger tin , throw it into a airtight container and let it sit for a couple of weeks
Very smooth and tasty smoke. If you like latakia, you owe it to yourself to give this one a try.
Wow! Amazing pretty much describes it, my number two favorite alongside ODF. Black House by H&H has met its match for me.
Just WOW! This is a Mac Baren home run. It's delicious from top to bottom, and I have a very difficult time trying not to smoke the entire bowl in 2 minutes. Definitely moved to the top of my list. Thank you Mac Baren!
I received a sample of this Latakia flake expecting some serious smokey flavor. Even though it contains latakia I guess I expected a what they call "Lat bomb". It wasn't quite that but it is slightly spicy,sweet,creamy and smooth with a hint of smokiness. The tin presentation alone is impressive. A little higher priced but the tin weighs more than your average circle tin. When you smoke it you'll see it's worth every penny. Great blend.
The tin note was of the smoky Latakia. I have been anxiously waiting the release of this blend since Per Jensen talked about it on Radio Show. This is definitely a Latakia forward blend, but that is not a necessarily bad thing. On the charring light and the true light the smokiness of the Latakia was right there. A little further down the bowl the spiciness of the Orientals joined with the smokiness of the Latakia. Next the sweet grass of the Virginians joined in. HH Latakia Flake smoked down to a fine gray ash with no dottle. It stayed lit with out any re-lights. This flake is all that I had hoped for and I will be stocking up my cellar. I would highly recommend HH Latakia Flake any pipe smoke that truly enjoys both flakes and Latakia.
