To describe this tobacco in a word, I would say "Flavorful". It's like a rich strong dark coffee with a little bit of milk and sugar added to tame any sharp bite you might get.If I had to describe it in two words, I would say "Smoky & Sweet". There is enough Latakia smokiness to satisfy the Latakia-lovers, but the flavors are complex, exotic and mellow at the same time. The sweetness of matured Red Virginias mixed with spicy sweet Orientals is perfectly balanced with the Cyprian Latakia. Maltese Falcon is a full-bodied, yet extremely smooth smoke.There is definitely a little bit of caramel in there as you progress through the smoke. I would say that no matter what you normally like to smoke, you should try Maltese Falcon. It has a little something for everyone. There's enough Latakia for those fans, and enough sweetness with so many different flavors that just about everybody should find something to like about Maltese Falcon.
This is one of my all time favorite G L Pease blends. This blend lights well, smokes cool and dry, and tastes great. It is not an overpowering Latakia taste, and it delivers flavor all the way doen to the bottom of the bowl. If you like a good Latakia blend, try this one, you will love it.
