Usually I smoke my light latakia blends in the vehicle while driving. Quite unintentionally, I noticed I'm beginning to smoke latakia blends at home.

I just opened Black Frigate, but I noticed I've been dipping into my SOTE and Penzance jars. Is this a fitting the profile of seasonal changes in blend preferences?

Welcome to the Dark-Side of the Force!! You have been entranced by the all powerful Master Latweed and lured into the ways of SOTE, Penzance, Engine #99, Westminster, Bill Bailey's Balkan, & Balkan Sasieni; not to mention the evil Frog Morton in all his addictive variations!!!!

Must agree. I've been on a primarily Va trend for a couple of years now, and all of a sudden this fall I'm smoking as much latakia blends as Va's. The Uhle's blends have my attention at present, especially Bishop's Move and #71.

I almost bought a tin of Balkan Sasieni the last time I was at JR's. To my knowledge it only comes in the 50g tins now. I used to smoke quite a bit of it along with SOTE. I don't know, I haven't had the urge for heavy Lat in a long time.

I tend to go to the Latakia blends when it starts to cool down here in Arizona. I have been enjoying Ashton's Artisan's blend lately driving home from work.

'Tis a seasonal thing with me as well. As it gets cooler, I like stronger flavors and I smoke a lot less when it's hot.
