Latakia Blend was created in 1964. At that time, a wish for a slightly smoky and yet natural tasting tobacco was in demand.
After the tobaccos have been spun into ropes it is stored for weeks and then cut into small coins. All the rolls in this tobacco have a centre of Dark Fired Kentucky which adds a slightly smoky note to the natural sweet Virginia tobacco. On top of these great taste-givers, a little bit of Latakia is added which adds to the smoky flavour in its own way.
Like most of our spun tobaccos, water and maple sugar are boiled and added to the tobacco. This is all we add so the taste is very natural with the interplay between the natural sweet Virginias and light sour and smoky flavour from the Dark Fired Kentucky perfectly blended to create a natural tobacco taste.
