Captain Earle’s Ten Russians

Post by wsblevins » Mon Jan 08, 2018 12:20 am

The tobacco is very heavy in Latakia and comes in a two ounce pressed krumble kake. It’s easy to run out. It requires little or no drying time.
It’s a Latakia bomb but in a good way. The orientals provide a buttery element while the Latakia combines with it in perfect harmony. If I had to describe the flavor, I would say it tastes like a fine steak off of the grill. The blend surprisingly has no bite whatsoever, and my smoking cadence is probably faster than most.
If I can only have one tobacco for the rest of my life, I would want it to be this one.

I've been craving a Latakia for a while. I rarely get to Latakia but when I do I always wonder why I dont smoke it often.

ONE WORD:
This is a great smoke.

I picked up an 8oz tin and find that I am enjoying this more and more each time I reach for it.

I mix Black rope in it occasionally, delicious.

I'm normally not that big into Latakia but I'd be happy if this were the only pipe blend available.
