With it supplies getting rarer and rarer, it is nice to offer something with Syrain Latakia opposed to the (still delightful) Cypriot variety. Built on a base of dark and earthy Virginia’s and (unsweetened) Black Cavendish. Combined these tobaccos set the scene for the oaky, smoky beauty of Latakia. In perfect harmony this tobacco rivals most in the category for a supping, “English” blend.
As soon as you open the tin you are greeted with a gentle woody aroma and the beauty of a dark broken flake. Best smoked slowly and with a medium width bowl, to get all the delicate flavours lurking beneath smoky surface. From the first draw you rewarded with beautifully balanced, Medium bodied smoke which develops throught the bowl. The first half brings a sweetness to the woods, with a little spice lingering. As you progress the spice grows and allows the sweetness to hang back a little. A real treat for those who enjoy a more woody and spicy Latakia blend.
Solani tobaccos are highly praised internationally and sought after by UK pipe connoisseurs. The use of high quality tobaccos gives the Solani blends an old world charm, quality, taste and overall an exceptional smoking experience. Serious tobacco collectors have Solani aging within their growing tobacco cellars.
