Latakia is an Oriental tobacco which is fire-cured. Small fires are created in an enclosed space with aromatic woods and fragrant herbs such as Mastic, Myrtle , Stone Pine, Cypress Tree and Konison. The smoke produced by these fires coats the tobacco and infuses its own flavor.
Latakia is the key ingredient in English/Balkan pipe blends. Latakia is used primarily as a spice tobacco. Much too strong to be smoked alone, but adds a unique quality which fortifies and distinguishes a blend.
All of our tobaccos are sold by the pound. The price reflect the price for one pound of tobacco unless otherwise noted.
