Mac Baren HH Latakia Flake starts with fine Cyprian Latakia and specially selected Virginias with superb small-leaf Orientals to which a touch of Burley is added. It is pressed into a flake and sliced, so it can be prepared to suit the tastes of the smoker. If you enjoy Latakia blends, HH Latakia Flake should be on your radar.
Please note: The bulk version of HH Latakia Flake comes in 16 oz. box.
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 Pipesmagazine.com 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.
