Smoky, full in flavor and stronger than the “Special” version.
The Latakia - Cypern is a black colored Loose Cut with few dark brown parts. The tobacco smells sweet, earthy and smoky, it is fine and short cut and is a little dry. This dryness is not a disadvantage in terms of taste and is also an advantage when mixing, as the Latakia -Cypern can be mixed with other tobaccos more simply and evenly.
The Latakia - Cypern is, as usual for a Loose Cut, stuffed loose down and up more tightly. It does not need any more to ensure good burning.
Two flames are sufficient to kindle the Latakia - Cypern: since the tobacco rises a little under the first flame, use the tamper and give fire again, then the tobacco burns uncomplicated to the end.
The smoke of the Latakia - Cypern is lush, but seeming heavy while is not really strong in the nicotine content or aroma. This is compareable with a luscious dessert melting on the tongue, which can be heavily but does not have to overwhelm, but conveys a pleasant fullness. The tobacco is at the same time spicy as well as fresh, ethereal and incense-like, which can be expected from a Latakia. The Latakia - Cypern is particularly noticeable and with a sour aftertaste, a pleasant tingling sensation on the palate, which is almost salty. The tobacco burns as usual for Latakia pleasantly cool and also calmly and left behind for cleaning only light gray, fine ash and as good as no condensate.
The Latakia - Cypern is clear and strong in the air, so Mixtures based on this tobacco are hardly suitable for companies that are not particularly fond of English tobaccos...
The Latakia - Cypern is a dark brown to black Loose Cut with typical smoky, but also sweetish scent. The tobacco provides the expected spicy as well as fresh-ethereal notes, but scores above all with a pronounced acidity and a salty tingling. Due to this powerful aroma and also by a certain gravity, the Latakia - Cypern is particularly suitable as a seasoning in a Mixture with milder Virginia tobaccos. There are no limits to the taste - as the tobacco can also be smoked purely, lovers of the English direction will be able to enjoy a larger part of the Latakia – Cypern, too.
