Description

Latakia is not a unique type of tobacco, but rather the name of the leaf after it has been smoke cured. Starting with a tobaco very simlar to our Yenidje, this leaf, grown in Cyprus, is first harvested, and sun dried, before being loaded into smoking barns. They are then smoked, in a manner very similar to our Dark Fire Cured Leaf, although more aromatic smoking woods are used. This gives the leave a very unique smoky floral flavor, which has been noted to have uniquely smooth smoking properties, despite its bold aroma.
