Latakia: Latakia blends are the marmite of tobacco world "Love it or hate it." Pure it is mainly used as a blending tobacco due to the overpowering flavour it provides. The flavour has a very distinctive tarry odour accompanied by a characterful burnt ash taste, which is due to a long curing process over smokey fires. Most smokers buy small amounts and add a pinch to a bowl full to add depth and character to the smoke. The Latakia is an acquired taste and definitely wouldn't be recommended for the novice smoker.
