Sure, just look on the tobacco pages of online retailers. Here's the epiphany text from PC:
Cornell & Diehl Epiphany is an homage to the original Revelation that was made by Philip Morris and frequently enjoyed by Albert Einstein. The late, noted Burley expert Bob Runowski developed this blend along with Craig Tarler using Nutty Burley as the base, along with sweet Virginias, smoky Latakia, and zesty Perique. Decidedly old fashioned in flavor, this easy-smoking blend is finished with a dark fruit note that perfectly compliments the tobaccos. For a real trip down memory lane, try C&D's Epiphany.

As a relatively new pipe smoker and a complete newbie to Epiphany (had my first bowl just yesterday), to me the latakia was certainly the most discernable leaf within the blend.

If, out of those you prefer the Epiphany, you probably like the Latakia.
Most new smokers, gravitate toward Latakia blends, myself included. I'm far from a veteran smoker, but after three years, I still love Latakia mixes. They burn cool, and taste awesome. My palate is starting to broaden, and I can pick out more flavors than I could a year ago. I'm also appreciating Virginias, Va/Pers, and Burleys more and more, but Latakia is still my major staple.
This is probably the case with you too.
That said, you will probably want look for other Latakia mixtures, also known as English/Balkan blends. There are a ton of Latakia blends out there.
My personal favorites are:
Dunhill My Mixture 965

GLP Westminster

C&D Star of the East

GLP Quiet Nights

Dunhill Nightcap

Ashton Artisan's Blend
Find your own favorites and have fun.

Is there a difference in taste for the epiphany in tins vs the epiphany bulk?
Depends on who you ask. Sometimes I find the bulk version is a little bit tamer.

Just tried some epiphany bulk and some sutliff revelation match back to back and actually liked the sutliff better.

I love Epiphany. Bulk or tin. I find no difference. It is good for the soul and the mind.

I did smoke Revelation in another era. Epiphany is very, very close to what my memory and taste buds tell me.

Yes, I'm getting a little long in tooth. But in my world, you can't go wrong with Epiphany.
