Mac Baren HH Latakia Flake is a smooth and flavorful English flake tobacco. The mixture is pressed tightly and steamed before being sliced into small and uniform flakes.

I purchased this to cellar for a few months/years, but I took one flake to try. I tried it out in an AKB meerschaum and was not disappointed. I am a confessed Latakia junkie and this was delightful. I cannot wait to try it in a few months.

I could smell that tin note all day and never get enough! Happen to be a Latakia fan so this one is great for me. No real surprises here, just a good quality smoke that I will keep in the rotation.

Great tobacco....Great service!
A great flake. The flavor is superb.
One of my very favorites.
Perhaps my palate is "off" but I actually didn't find this to be overwhelming, or make me think of what others refer to as a "lat bomb". I found it to be delightfully smoky but smooth as butter with some sweetness to it that made it a pleasure to smoke from beginning to end. While it won't be a "daily", it is definitively one that I will keep around for my regular "repeat" list. It performed well with several pipes of various shapes and sizes. Notably, I have not yet been disappointed in the slightest by any blend or leaf in the Mac Baren HH line.
Very good smoke.
The smell out of the tin is strong and smoky (delicious), but the taste is not that strong. Don't expect a lat-bomb, is very good tobacco, perfectly balanced, just let it dry a bit before lighting it.
For the lovers of Latakia, you need to try this and smoke it by itself or use for making your blend.
Not blown away
If you're looking for a Lat Bomb, this is not it. It is a nice English flake. I like English blends. I'll probably smoke it again some time, but it is not one of my top favorites.
