Due to be released at the end of October. I have heard reports from some pre-release samples that this is a Latakia Plug. Early tasters are lauding this as a terrific tobacco - sure to be popular when released at the end of the month. I have not been lucky enough to sample this one yet myself.

I predict a near instant sell-out just like Penzance. It would be interesting to see if they are similar.

I still have about 37 Pease tobaccos to catch up on. I'm sure it will be interesting.

Perfect timing, just as I'm trying to stop sampling and settle on a limit of five blends to smoke for the forseable future...

I'm giving "Triple Play" a little time on the shelf, but I'll be interested to hear how this one is received.

LOTPRs: Have you tried Barbary Coast? I would classify it as a crossover blend. Brandy casing, but supported by rich, real tobacco flavors.

I tried Union Square, a straight VA blend. It was good, but not something that left me wanting to abandon aromatics for Va blends.
Pease also uses Latakia a lot which I currently find to be a very bitter and off putting taste.

LOTPRs: you should try: Haddos, Key Largo, Barbary Coast, Sextant, Navigator, Cairo, Fillmore, Laurel Heights, Cumberland and Robusto.
Try each one. Get a tin, maybe an 8oz, just in case you love it. But, if you don't, PM me and I'll send you my address :nana:
:puffy:

I'll stick with my aromatics for now lol.
I do find it kind of strange that he doesn't have at least one aromatic. Aromatic blends make up about 80-90% of all pipe tobacco sales. That's a huge market that's being ignored.

When I had lunch with the Dark Lord yesterday he was kind enough to give me a pre-production tin.
He had also given me prototype a few months ago and I have been slowly sampling it.
While I cannot reveal details before he does, I am enjoying the new blend tremendously and think it will be a winner.
He says more news will be coming out very soon.
Stay tuned, as they say.

As many here said, I also can't wait for this to be released. I'm curious to how it will compare to some of the heavier lat blends out there. It may be one for the cellar!

I can't wait for this to be released! The rumor on another forum is this is going to GLP's interpretation of the famed Bengal Slices. I have no idea what the truth is but a latakia plug from GLP is going to rock. My favorite Latakia blends have always been in flake or kake form. My favorites included Star of the East flake, Plum Pudding, Penzance, Fusiler's Ration, Old Ironsides, Lancer Slices, Ten Russians, Robert McConnell Latakia Flake and Pirate Kake. Flakes and Kakes is where it is at! We need more of them!
