Manufacturer Description:
Classically processed Latakia flake with Orient and Virginia.

The Special Latakia Flake comes in a small rectangular tin, which is not often found nowadays. Therein lies almost exactly fitting the flakes. The aroma that rises when the can is opened is a typical for this company to be designated flavor with his tarry, salty and tangy notes reminiscent of sea and coast, that might scare beginners first. But in the background  are darker flavors and reminiscents of apricot jam. The flakes act actually not too moist, but but they are sticking together quite firmly. Sugar crystals sparkle on the surface, showing many shades of color, from light to dark brown, with almost black and gray veins.

Due to its slightly sticky consistency it is necessary to prepare the Special Latakia Flake. As a whole flake it can be solved with careful aid of a knife from the other flakes, then you can bent and folded him before bringing it into the pipe, which works well because of its elasticity. Alternatively you can pluck off larger or smaller fibers by the flake stack from the tin and prepare an own Mixture. No matter how you stuff, you should bring the tobacco in the pipe very carefully and plug it not too tight or too loose. Some tobacco crumbs on top of the filling may facilitate the kindling.

Light up:
The Special Latakia Flake proves to be somewhat stubborn when ignited, although he hardly stands up. So you should ignite him very evenly, let go, smooth the surface with the tamper and now ignite it with a second flame again very evenly. This requires some practice and patience, but once it burns really well, then until the end!

Smoking  properties:
The thoroughness of plugging is worthwhile, as it is done with care and the flake is well lit, then the Special Latakia Flake makes few problems. It also forgives too eager smoking and resists getting too hot even if smoked outdoors in light winds. The smoke is not very thick, but sustained by a pleasant fine incense note, flakes with Latakia is often appropriated. Joining them there is an unusually fresh component, a cooling silky touch, beautifully harmonizing with the darker, bitter sweet flavor that contributes to the Virginias. As vinous thanks to this cooling property there is no burning on the tongue, such as a gargling or the need for an excessive cleaning. After smoking remains - typically for Latakia - fine, almost white ash with a few dark portions in the pipe and a pleasant fresh taste in your mouth as if you have just eaten a good rye bread.

The room note of the Special Latakia Flake is due to the high amount of Latakia very strong and tart "typically english" and will be barely tolerated by not smoking companies.  If stuffed carefully his smooth smoking properties make it a good tobacco for walks. However, in a circle of like-minded or enjoyed alone it tastes good too.

The Special Latakia Flake is a black-brown Flake, which is not easy to stuff due to its slightly moist consistency. His fragrance is unusual and special. This and the high content of Latakia makes it not a great object for practice for beginners, but stuffed with a bit of practice and a careful light up it can be smoked quite easily. It surprises with rather medium strength, silky incense aromas and a refreshing coolness that conveys a pleasant sweetness. With experience in Latakia and in plugging of flakes it is a pleasant companion on excursions in nature or in smoking society in which earthy english tobaccos are welcome.
