Fans of Latakia who are looking for something different should try a tin of Balkan Flake from Samuel Gawith. Unlike the Balkans you’re probably familiar with, this blend is primarily Virginia with about 30% Latakia. The result is a fairly mild English that puts the Latakia flavor forward.

    Easy to rub out of fold and stuff. Needs a bit of drying time. Plumes of thick, cool, flavorful smoky goodness. Definitely worth trying if you like latakia / Balkan blends.

    Latakia up front but not a Lat bomb with a nice Virginia follow up, with a coolness throughout. Not mint, not menthol, and not strong. Faint but cool. Complex by simplicity.
