Finely ground, fermented Latakia tobacco blended with a little first priming flue cured Virginia Lemon leaf, to create a unique, silky, slightly moist, peppery high nicotine snuff with an intense smokey flavour.
Named after the port of the same name in northern Syria, Latakia tobacco is now mainly produced in Cyprus, where the harvested leaves are first sun dried like other Turkish tobaccos and then smoke cured over smouldering aromatic wood fires.
Traditionally used as a “condiment “ or “blender” in Oriental pipe mixtures, the process of creating Latakia tobacco was discovered by accident in the middle of the 19th century. After a bumper crop, peasant farmers hung the excess tobacco in the rafters of their homes through the winter and in the spring, smoke from their open fires was found to have imbued the leaves with the famously deep, rich, smokey, peppery characteristics
