Drake’s Cypriot Latakia E-liquid 50ml Bottle 0mg

Latakia tobacco is a specially prepared tobacco originally produced in Syria and named after the port city of Latakia. Now the tobacco is mainly produced in Cyprus. It is initially sun-cured like other Turkish tobaccos and then further cured over controlled fires of aromatic woods and fragrant herbs, which gives it an intense smokey-peppery taste and smell. Too strong for most people’s tastes to smoke straight, it is best used as a “blender” (a basic tobacco mixed with other tobaccos to create a blend). We blend ours with our flue cured Virginia to balance the flavour.

Cold Extraction Process 

After leaf selection, our master blenders cold macerate the tobacco leaf blend for between 5-9 weeks, stirring them daily to ensure a full-bodied flavour.

We then use an 8 stage natural filtration process to remove all the tobacco leaf from the final liquid concentrate.

    Ive been vaping since 2007. In that time i have tried hundreds of liquids, and i make my own regularly. With concern to naturally extracted tobacco liquids i have spent the last year trying every brand i can find, to try to get a liquid that actually tasted close to a cigarette.
    As ive been going through the various flavours here at the Drakes brand, each time i profess the latest one i try as my favourite. They are that good. This flavour however, is the closest to an actual ciggie i have ever tried, from any brand anywhere.

    Its strong flavour is very smokey and robust, but it also has a bitterness that satisfies. Many liquids end up being sweet, but this only has a small aftertaste of sweetness. The bulk of the flavour is pure tobacco and dryness.

    I highly recommend this liquid. Its a strong flavour and is not for everyone. But for me, its the best there is.

    In search for the perfect N.E.T. blend I’ve come a step closer. As a cigarette smoker for 40 years I’m nearly there. You Scandinavian smokers here will know what I’m talking about. Red Prince. Latakia is the missing piece. Too strong by itself, sorry Anna, it’s perfect for blending. I tried the Cavendish mixed with 20% Latika and got a fantastic flavour. That is, there is hardly no flavour at all. Just like my cigarettes. If this sounds crazy, let me explain. I am a new vaper trying to get off smoking. As I suspect most smokers want is to get as close to the taste of our old familiar flavours as we can and to be honest, they don’t taste that much. I was told that this isn’t going to happen. Going through a bunch of syntetic “Tobacco” flavours , they are just distgusting, and not really that keen on “Appletart and Strawberry Custard with Cherryvanilla Iceream on green Melon with Cookie Butter ” I nearly gave up. Enter N.E.T. And Drakes. Thank you! It will take a while to find my perfect blend and I’m still trying. But with the Latakia I have the perfect strong, and I do mean strong, base to mix with the other flavours. As Anna said, this is the taste of pure tobacco and dryness. If you are in search of tobacco taste in it’s purest form this is the one. Highly recommended!

    This is fabulous stuff from Drake’s. Strong, dark, complex and really smoky. That Latakia “wood smoke” flavour really comes through strongly on every hit, but not in a way that’s harsh or overpowering, they’ve balanced it well. It’s aromatic and herby underneath the smoke too…what is that, thyme, bay leaf, marjoram? It’s a evocative of being on a hillside in Greece in summer under the stars, smelling the scent of wood smoke and Mediterranean herbs in the breeze.

    It’s strong stuff, I wouldn’t vape it as an ADV tobacco. One to savour slowly in the evenings, I’ll be pairing it with a glass of smoky Islay malt whisky in the evenings by the fire this winter!

    I’ve been making my own tobacco mixes from off-the-shelf DIY concentrates for 3 years now but I’ll never be able to make anything that comes close to the smoky complexity of this NET!

    Tested in: Berserker MTL RDA. 1.1ohm, 13 watts. It’s a very dark juice. NETs are hard on coils and wicks, but this one even more so. I’ve been rewicking and cleaning after 5ml as the coil is black and the flavour is turning funky by then, so I’d recommend RDAs rather than tanks.

    i recently bought two 50ml shortfills – kentucky and latakia.
    the kentucky is a very nice smokey tobacco – excellent – 5star rating
    the latakia is too strong to vape neat and mixes well. however the strong taste is not tobacco………
    on the bottle it says the leaf is cured over aromatic wood smoke……..which completely overpowers any tobacco flavour……so if you like to vape wood smoke……..1 star rating.

    i would like to add to my previous review of shortfill latakia……….although too strong by itself, with more experience i have found it to be a wonderful mixer – just a small squirt will improve any and all of my other tobacco liquids giving a delightful smooth and rounded smokey taste.
    like other reviewers of drakes products i also feel that i have now found the perfect vape and would encourage others to give drakes a try – you won’t regret it.

    This is a very good blend, with just enough Virginia to lighten the Latakia enough for a strong but not overpowering vape. It’s very woody, very smokey and slightly peppery on the nose – unmistakably Latakia. For me it’s more of an evening vape than an all day vape, but I’ll enjoy the odd e-pipe of this in the garden too. Dryer and less sweet than I expected, i was expecting slightly more of a woody sweetness within the smokeyness, and whilst there is a herbal note to the smoke there’s not the slightly incense quality to the top notes that I associate with Latakia. Very good, but missing some of the subtler notes I’d have expected. It’s good as a mixer with some of Drake’s superb Perique, and will probably work with their Cavendish that’s on my must try list…
