New legislation imposed in 2017 has meant the demise of many unique blends. Unfortunately this is blend is one that we shall never see in the UK again. We have left the listing on our website for historical reference and interest.
The Mac Barens Latakia is a roll cake tobacco, produced from carefully matured Virginia and Cavendish tobaccos, which have been spun tightly around a discreet Latakia core, bringing more depth to a cool smoking pure tobacco flavour. Don't expect a really distinct English Earthy tobacco. This is a mild easy going tobacco, which a barely noticeable hint of Latakia for those who want a little earthy flavour but don't enjoy the full impact of an English blend.
Roll Cake/Curly Cut: The Mac Barens Latakia comes in Roll Cake form. The sliced discs can be smoked as they are, mixed with some ready rubbed or can be rubbed to the smokers preference depending on the desired burn rate. Twist tobacco is often matured. All though this adds depth of flavour and character it can be over powering for the less experienced.
Loose packaged to order: Here at the Black Swan Specialist Tobacconist we buy the Mac Barens Latakia Pipe Tobacco loose in half kilo bags. This means we hand package your tobacco and inspect every strand before it reaches you.
