Nice review, Nick. Unusual to see someone who isn't raving about an Esoterica blend, although the Turkish nature you menion does intrigue me. What does it look like? I'm on a Germain's kick and their Special Latakia Flake is next up - it's very black and comes as a block of flakes which are quite compressed. (I had some before and remember I enjoyed it despite not being big on Latakia). The comparison might be interesting.
