Latakia Fire Cured NET is a very smokey flavour which is a bit like coal tar (don’t let that put you off) it’s a very smooth vape and very desireable flavour. Because it’s a strong flavour this is ideal for use in a ‘normal’ (Nautilus type) tank but can equally be used in a pod system or smaller tank.
Original Leaf Description:
Cyprian Latakia is a Yenidje like leaf that goes through a smoke curing similar to the Dark Fire Cured that gives this leaf its dark color and smoky taste.
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.
Often considered a spice tobacco, it will not usually make up more then 10-20% of any pipe or cigarette blends. This leaf is commonly blended with Virigina Flue Cured tobaccos to bring out its unique flavor profile.
