What's the verdict on the most potent latakia blend with the highest nicotine?
After smoking quite a bit of Pirate Kake, I'm finding I could bathe in latakia (swimming pool full).
Only thing it's lacking is the nicotine.

I just discovered Lane Punch. Absolute lat bomb with a good kick. Strongest nic lat bomb I’ve found yet.
I’m sure there’s others but I’m really happy with Punch.
Punch... in the face.
Also I like to add Five Brothers to basically anything to kick it up a notch or three.

I really like Bow Legged Bear and it’s definitely got a kick to it but I just didn’t get a lot of latakia out of it.
Ten Russians is definitely a lat bomb with a nic hit. Also very high on my favorites list.

Thanks for the info guys. Ten russians and bow legged, both are in a recent order I placed which should arrive in a day or so. Can't wait to try them. I'm putting punch on the future list.

C&D Montford Point Marine...Best Lat Blend out there. Have a cup of water beside you. I usually don’t get hiccups, but this one delivers.

I'm not sure about the nicotine level, but C&D Da Vinci is about 75% latakia, I believe. And you could always just get some straight mixing latakia!

McConnell's latakia flake always kicks my ass. If I'm attempting to get 2 full flakes in the bowl, I gotto be careful.

Latakia, in and of itself, is not a high nicotine leaf, so a blend that is high in latakia is apt to be lower in nicotine.

As per my understanding... this is the case

Gawith Hoggarth &Co Dark Flake Unscented is the strongest I have smoked in Nicotine Department

judcole, I agree. Lat is not at all synonymous with high nicotine. There are some higher nic English blends with Lat, but that isn't the source of the nicotine I don't think. Just coincidence.
