Stoved Virginias and Latakia make a mixture of light and dark that’s hard to beat in Samuel Gawith’s Commonwealth blend. It’s a pipe tobacco that Latakia lovers are sure to find enjoyable. If you’re a fan of English blends, this one is a must try. If you’re not, we’d recommend passing on it.

This is probably my all-time favorite. If I had the money, I would buy it by the bag. Never bites, and I tend to puff this fast, even though I don’t want to (it's just so good). If you’re a fan of Virginia’s and Latakia, then I highly recommend!
A must in anyone's rotation seeking a Latakia blend with some "oomph" to it. The heavy, smokey Latakia is certainly there but well balanced by the equally proportioned Virginia tobacco. I like to take a bowl's worth and let it dry for about 30 mins before packing and lighting up. I'm rewarded with a rich, full-flavored smoke that burns well with a few re-lights if smoked at a moderate pace. Nice grey ash with little dottle or moisture in the bowl. Thick smoke to keep the wife outta my hair and smoking room for awhile too!
