A gentle blend of Macedonian leaf, latakia and matured Virginia with a hint of perique -- well-aged for extra smoothness. The distinctively rich, spicy flavor of this fine Oriental mixture brings a warm glow to the coldest winter day. Years of maturing followed by months of aging in the tin, produces incomparable aroma and softness in this fine Macedonian blend.

When Winter came out in the mid 1990s it was all the rage and I even remember it being discussed in the long gone and lamented Pipe Smoker's Ephemeris Magazine. I ate this stuff up. It had all the component and all the quality one would appreciate who was driven to Virginia/Latakia/Perique blends. I surely do miss this one.

A wonderful blend, intensely spicy and smoky. Not quite as spicy or sweet as as FBR-S, but the latakia is better integrated. It's been years since I've smoked this (got distracted by Balkan Sobranie), so details are short. I've still got a few tins around, I'll try and pop one soon and refresh my memory...

Smoking PCCA Winter is like sitting with an old friend around a campfire, chatting with him for a few hours while breathing in the smoke of the fire. Recommended to Latakia lovers.
