Russ' Fireworks

About five or six years ago, I was asked to create a limited-run blend for some friends. I wanted it to be something special, so I made a Latakia blend with a twist - the Turkish Orientals wee gently toasted to change the flavor profile. We called it Fireworks, and people really enjoyed it, but we had to stop production because the toasting process took too much time.  In honor of our nation's independence, we're re-releasing this hearty Latakia blend, but as with the original, it will available for a limited time, so if you enjoy it, you'd better stock up.

Ok, but not a favorite.
Has a nice initial taste is good, but turns a bit harsh. Not a favored room note.

Easy to enjoy for a new pipe smoker.
I'm fairly new to pipes. As with most new pipe smokers, the aromatics are nice and easy. I tried a few Norwegian tobaccos and found that I'm not enjoying them very much. However, I just finished my second bowel of Russ' Fireworks, and find that it is an enjoyable easy smoke. As others have mentioned, if you don't "sip" it, you can get a bite. I think this is a great smoke for a non-aromatic blend. I'm looking forward to enjoying this blend.

Geat early morning somke
At first I didn’t like it. but after letting it age the Virginia became very sweet and the latikia retained its smokeiness. It’s a great start for your day. Would have bout more if I knew.

Pretty good blend!
So this is a nice blend. It reminds me of many English Latakia blends. This blend definitely has some kick to it. By that I mean some peppery spicy flavor as well as that nice smoky flavor. If I didn't know better I would say there is some Cajun perique included. The blend is totally dry and burns nice and slow. It will certainly bite you if your not a sipper and smoke slowly. The taste is as you would expect smoky woody and just a very slight hint of sweetness. The peppery flavor comes and goes but gets decidedly stronger as you reach the bottom of the bowl. Room note is nothing to rave about but the smoky is fairly thick and somewhat creamy. I would say this is a Frog Morton without the vinegary flavor and more peppery flavor. This is a better than average smoke that Latakia lovers should enjoy.
