Tobacco Flavor Taste: Smokey & Peppery
Curing Method: Fire & Sun-cured
Description: Latakia is a rich, intense smoky-peppery tobacco that provides a powerfully distinct delight for the senses. The blend uses the Syrian Latakia process of sun-curing the tobacco, then smoke-curing over controlled fires of fragrant wood and indigenous aromatic herbs.
History: In Northern Syria at the time of the Ottoman Empire, Oriental tobacco farmers with bumper crops had to store their excess tobacco at home as they waited to sell it the following year. During the cold winters, the framers cooked and heated their homes with open fires fueled by aromatic lumber bundles.
The stored tobacco absorbed the smoky fumes, giving it a distinctly rich, heavy taste and smoky aroma. Since these farmers were in the Latakia area of Syria, they called the creation Latakia tobacco.
