The journey through a single bowl of this tobacco is just as adventurous as the epic it was named after. Odyssey is a Balkan style tobacco that has full flavor and features a liberal spritzing of Orientals and Latakia. Because of this tobacco's potency, we suggest smoking it after a meal or during the late hours of the night.

This one I enjoyed thoroughly. It has the Latakia base you'd expect, but the Orientals steal the show. Distinct signatures take center stage in sequence, and by the middle of the bowl settle into a delicious complexity. It is properly named, Odyssey---one is sailing through diverse cultures, and becoming cultured.
I loved Westminster. I was somewhat underwhelmed by Gaslight. This Odyssey from G.L. Pease I will definitely buy again.
I would give it 4.5 stars if I could.
Blended with the Latakia-Lover in mind, G.L. Pease has hit another homerun with his Original-Mixture's Odyssey! Although very Latakia-forward, this blend has just the right recipe of Turkish/Orientals to balance out the rich, campfire and leather accents to score another homerun! If you love Latakia, but want a nice, balanced smoking experience, this is the one blend for you! You will thank yourself if you indulge in this evocative English mixture...
