One of the best Balkan tobaccos ever! The Oriental/Turkish tobacco is predominant at first but then the Virginia and Latakia take their places allowing a full pleasure till the end of the bowl!!
Good——-but not as good as Balkan. Sabrani.
A wonderful blend. I prefer the original Balkan Sobrani. Do you have plans to restock Sobrani?
Great medium flavored English blend. If you decide to age it, it’ll greet you with a smooth, round, fuller smoke that is well balanced and lively. Smoke it fresh from the tin, it’s a little rough around the edges but still wonderful. If you don’t like this blend, you don’t like English blends. It’s the quintessential demo of a quality English blend, comparable to Presbyterian but more complex. I recommend aging it though.
Such a good, even smoke. I enjoyed out of a variety of my pipes. As a new pipe smoker, this is a good step up from an aromatic. Very flavorful and nice room note.
This is a real, quintessential Balkan blend. Wonderful, spicy orientals with just enough latakia. An everyday smoke, one of my favourites.
One of the best balkan blends I've had very smooth. Give it a try.
I give it 2 stars because it IS pipe tobacco and you CAN smoke it. Other than that......well.....I'm not a fan. Tastes a little like soap. This is only MY opinion...others may like it...not me.
I am breaking in a new pipe as advised, but this tobacco seems to smoke rather harsh compared with others I've used.
