||This mixture, in my opinion, represents the subtle application of Latakia; it's used in a percentage that enhances the mixture, tickles the taste buds, without resulting in a "one-tobacco-show"! The cut means that packing should be done with care and only the slightest pressure. Upon lighting, the dominant taste is that of very sweet, natural VAs and of Black Cavendish; minutes into the smoke, the Latakia gets into play, without overshadowing the sweetness of the VAs. Slowly, the taste becomes a subtle combination of sweetness and smokiness, which slowly becomes the "new born" and consistent taste. Later, and towards the end of the smoke, a nutty taste pops up and adds yet another dimension to the experience. From my trials, I noticed that this might be a tobacco that smokes a bit wet, so make sure it's not too wet before packing! I would also recommend medium to large size bowls. I see this as an ideal mixture for those who want to move from Latakia mixtures into straight, natural VAs, as well as those to wish to take the opposite course.
