McClelland Blending Latakia

This item is no longer available for purchase.
See similar items below.

Latakia is the cornerstone of "English" and "Balkan" mixtures, providing a rich, fragrant smokiness. This type is made in Cyprus from a Turkish varietal called Smyrna which is hung in a building with open fires made of aromatic woods. The tobacco eventually blackens and the resulting leaf burns slowly and quite cool giving flavor notes of leather, anise and wood.

A wonderful blending tobacco
McClelland Blending Latakia came as a complete surprise to me. I don't recall having purchased any McClelland tobacco before this and it was really good. Very smoky flavor, good texture and the right amount of moisture for a good, slow burn. I use it for several of my own blends. It adds a component I find very enjoyable.

If you like English blends...
You need a tin on hand. Lasts a long time as you will use sparingly. But it's great to sprinkle into your favorite staple blends. Add an extra special smooth smokiness.

A unique flavor and aromatic note of your own creation
McClelland Blending Latakia is great tasting and allows the user to blend in as much or as little to develop a unique flavor and aromatic note. Blends well with Dunhill's London Mixture
Customer Testimonials
I could go on a long time about latakia. By itself it takes a real man to withstand the Latbomb. Used as a blending agent,,,,,,, this stuff will take a mediocre tobacco like borkum riff 11° and make it phenominal. Added to Mac Baren 7 Seas,, get out a here. The point here is a small amount of Latakia added to any aromatic makes it better. The great thing is more is not better. 10 percent is all it takes. It improves the burn, flavor, smoke content, does not bite, and if I'm not mistaken has a nice nicotine punch. Latakia can give give you the pipe euphoria that you have been dreaming about. Play with it. I will now experiment with perique and oriental.
