Battle of the Blends - Pouch Per Pouch pairs up two rare commodities - Latakia blends in pouches. John Bull is a straightforward English-style blend of Virginia, Orientals, and Latakia. Missouri Meerschaum American Patriot is more of an American/English made with Burley, Virginia, Orientals, and Latakia with a hint of Bourbon. Try them side-by-side and choose the one that suits you best, then vote for the winner. But at only $6.99 for two pouches of Latakia blends, you're the one who wins.
