    Hey guys I'm looking to try another Lat bomb as i'm really enjoying them lately. So far Pirate Kake is at the top my list but i have also ordered some Ten Russians which has not arrived yet. Is there any others that you can recommend ?
    That Latakia really has a hold of me right now.
    Thanks

    Keep calm...smoke a pipe.

    You might want to try Kramer's Father Dempsey. HU Fayyum Kake is another blend with high Latakia content. Ashton Artisan's Blend definitely.

    Why not get some straight Latakia?

    The only "bomb" I've smoked is Pirate Kake. Of the others mentioned above which I've smoked, none are "bombs".

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    Sillem's Commodore Flake! But you will have to fight me for it when there is a drop. It's very difficult stuff to procure via online retailers. It sells out very fast.

    Agreed here, John, but you know most folks are on straight. }:) Me, I love the stuff, but going all the way to 11 on the meter's more than most people want to inflict on their surroundings at one jump!

    C&D Star of the East

    The only true 'bomb' is Pirate Kake. Star of the East they say is 50% Lat. I've been told Commonwealth is too. Commonwealth is very good, it's Latakia and Virginia, whereas Stor of the East is Latakia, Virginia, and Orientals.


    So you say you can drink? Well, I'm from Wisconsin. Try to keep up.

    That Commodore Flake looks very interesting. 75% Latakia which is similar to Pirate Kake. Npod I may have to fight you for a tin. Lol

    C&D has another one that has 75% (I believe) called DaVinci and their Engine 99 is another heavy Lat blend. I’ll second those who said Star of the East but I would recommend the flake as opposed to the ribbon cut blend.

    Lane Punch. Definitely a lat bomb right up there with Pirate Kake. I’m really liking this stuff

    The 10 Russians you have coming should satisfy your desire for Lat very well. Bow Legged Bear is another that you might want to try. Pembroke is worth mentioning, although this is from Esoterica, which basically makes it an endangered species.

    [/quote]Is Punch really as high in nic as i have read online ? More than Pirate Kake ?[quote]

    I would say yes for sure. I don’t get a big nic kick from Pirate Kake and it’s rated at medium strength on TR (strength on TR usually refers to nicotine).

    Punch is rated “very strong” in strength on TR and I can definitely attest to this. Not to mention smooth, easy smoking ribbon cut and definitely qualifies as a lat bomb. One tin would be worth a try in my opinion. To me, it’s the best of both worlds as latakia is typically a low nicotine tobacco. I’m guessing it’s from the burley.

    Billy Bud is also a lat forward blend but might not be considered a bomb. Definitely carries a decent nicotine hit and is also one of my favorites.

    Engine #99 and Ten Russians also highly recommended.

    I did try smoking straight blending latakia once and it was surprisingly good. Not harsh at all. Thinking I’ll try it again soon.
