|Tobacco||Latakia, Oriental, Virginia|
|Room Note||3 - Balanced|
"Rose of Latakia" refers to the leaves harvested higher on the plant which are then fire cured. If you're looking for a blend in which Syrian Latakia is in the forefront, this isn't for you, but if you want to see what the Syrian leaf can do as a condiment, Rose of Latakia is terrific. If you approach it the way you might if you're smoking a Virginia blend, you'll get the best results. There's sweetness from the Virginias, a mellow spice from the Orientals, and the delicate, winey, smoky flavor supporting the rest of the blend.
