This is a quite decent Latakia blend, if you like Latakia bombs. I used to buy tobacco from Walt many years ago (Black River Cigar, if I recall correctly, please someone help me--it's a pity he left the business). I think they were mostly Uhle's blends, but this one is an original recipe. I smoked one tin but never bought more, even when I was a Latakia aficionado. Worth a go, if you can afford it.
