Aylesbury Latakia; 1 Dimension of Delight

You pop open the tin, and open up the little bag within that actually contains the tobacco.  You are immediately slapped in the face by a delightful smoky smell.  If you went/go camping, you'll think that there's a campfire in next to you.

The baccy is quite loose in the tin.  Also, it is quite moist, but, in my experience, not sticky moist.  Which makes sense, since this is certainly not an aromatic!  
This tobacco lights quite well, but is VERY prone to bite as you light; be careful.  Throughout the smoke you get a strong latakia flavor, and really pretty much nothing else.  There might be the tiniest bit of oriental tobaccos in there, and I'm sure some burley, but it is a pretty one-dimensional smoke.  But it is a very good dimension, if you enjoy latakia.
