S.Gawith - Balkan Flake

Smokes really cool! 30% latakia tobacco in this mixture is obvious in the taste from the first moment.

Taste was best when I smoked slowly so I kept burn it very gently. Then the mild taste could fully develop to the mellow latakia experience.

The unexpected sweetness surprised me. It didn't appear when I lit the bowl but rose during smoking and growed stronger after 15 minutes of smoking. I can feel it clearly on the tip of the tongue.

Probably it is caused by the residual sugar in the Virginia leaves.
