Yet another phenomenal catch from some kind soul, this is one of my favorite blends to date! This one looks like it had been cellared for a bit, as the tobacco had heavily stained the cardboard lining in the C&D tin, so I don't know if this stuff is this amazing fresh, but I'll be finding out.
Nice well-blended latakia, sticky, even burn. Lingering aftertaste tastes great and makes you want to get back out of bed to have another bowl.
I have plenty to try but have gone back to this one several times now.
Highly recommend, and thanks!

Hey that's great Alex! SOTE is my main go to blend. That and Westminster. Glad you liked it. And it does get better with age. I had a friend send me a five year old sample that was outta this world. Contrary to what a lot of folks say that Lat blends don't age well. This one at least does!
