Well, what can I say? Cosmicfolklore just has good taste. Why, you ask? Because they agree with my own and are therefore by default... exceptional! :wink: I am only a bowl into this tin of Yenidje Highlander, which is not enough to be making declarative statements but damn, this is a good blend so far. As much as I have been enjoying Balkan style blends and Tashkent, I have been curios to explore more orientals. I had been eyeing this blend along with a few others and at Cosmic's suggestion grabbed a tin. Although there are Virginias and some Latakia, the orientals really are the star of the show. Sour and lightly spicy are definitely what I pick up most. Sweetness is there but in a very balanced way. Not sure if that's all from the Virginias or of the orientals are helping. The Latakia is present but is held well in check and never became dominant. I will reserve final judgment till I have smoked more but a very promising start.
