If you are looking for a good tobacco to age, then there are few better options for us to suggest than the Brebbia Latakia Flake blend. Made from Latakia, Perique, Oriental, and Virginia tobacco, the melding and mellowing of this mixture is something to behold. We suggest pairing this blend with a rich cup of dark roasted coffee.

Beautiful smokiness with excellent hay/grassy sweetness in every puff. I enjoy Va/Pers but this blend to me is much better tasting than the Va/Pers I have smoked.
I can smoke this all day long, in any pipe, and get the same results: perfection.
The Syrian latakia is amazing and has the right amount of smokey goodness, the Virginia's are playing strong trying to take the forefront of the smoke, adding just the right amount of sweetness to the mix.
Perfect moisture level right out of the tin.
It's a shame this will be gone soon. Glad I stocked up what I could.
A smooth yet full-bodied English blend containing a healthy portion of that dark leaf to satisfy the Latakiaphile’s most ardent desire. Additionally, www.tobaccopipes.com is my go-to source for tobacco & related articles. I’m a customer for life!
I’ve been searching for a blend “in the same vein” as Penzance and found it ... but I think this is even better IMHO. I don’t know how much longer this will be offered as it contains Syrian Latakia (for which the supply is quickly dwindling) but I’ll keep buying it until it’s gone. Additionally, Tobacco Pipes offerings & Service is First Class!
