Lakeland Dark is a powerful tobacco that can only be described as complex. It has a variance of flavor but not one you can put your finger on. Pay attention to the strength of this tobacco as it would not be suitable for a beginner or someone looking for a mild smoke.

To me this is a top notch tobacco, it is a close cousin to 1792.
I have really come to appreciate the creamy rich smoke this tobacco produces. Earthy, leathery, mild hint of spice, and sweetness. It has a lot of complexity for being such a simple blend. Lakeland essence is overpowered if it's there at all. Bulk would be great in this one.
If you like 1792 you need some of this blend. A simple blend of complex flavors. Dark and rich. Just ordered 4 more tins to cellar.
