The first time I sampled this, I wasn't that impressed, but the second go 'round I took more time to contemplate the flavors and intricacies of the blend, and wow, there is a lot of flavor here. Just looking at the tobacco in the tin, I can see many varieties of leaves. When I cracked the tin, the blend was perfectly moist, it needs no drying out to smoke whatsoever, just make sure to throw it in a mason jar to preserve the moisture. Great blend. Great price, that equals 5 stars in my book.
Strong and Clean

The website's description is apt--a strong flavor and clean aftertaste. It's strength is in the flavor but the smoke is not harsh or strong in nicotine. I am reminded of a good gin--the scent of pine needles and herbs--but not lingering like a whisky. It burns well and the flavor is consistent from top to bottom of the bowl. It sustains strong draws without getting hot. I will be purchasing more of this and I highly recommend it, especially to lovers of latakia and orientals.
