I'll make this simple. If you like Latakia, you'll love this Gawith Hoggarth Latakia (that's right...it's pure Latakia).
I know…it’s not considered “normal” to smoke pure Latakia. Yet, how many pipers think nothing of smoking pure Virginia, or pure Burley? “That’s different. Latakia is a strong condiment tobacco…” Heh. If you think Latakia is "strong" tobacco, you're in for a revelation. GH Latakia is one of the gentlest, sweetest, yet most flavorful smokes you'll ever find. It wouldn’t surprise me to find that pipers who don’t like Latakia blends actually like GawHogg’s pure Latakia.
If you've never smoked any of this particular Latakia, you're in for a treat. It's not something I smoke every day, but when the mood is right, nothing else will do. It's truly extraordinary weed.
