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 ?
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.
