A Latakia lovers dream, this blend has a high percentage of Cyprian Latakia complemented by Kentucky, Oriental and Virginia tobaccos. Flake cut.
Country of Origin:
Old Ironsides - Here is a rich Latakia blend that gets totally mixed reviews. If you like Latakia you will really like Old Ironsides. Though this blend has Kentucky, VA, and Orien, in it...well its hardly detected...at least by me. I even puffed really hard to draw out some VA but it stayed in the far far background and the Lata dominated.
This blend requires a minor rubbing out and in fact is so minior you can just fold it and load it. Watch out you will get a little dirty just handling this mix.
