    Pure love

    Balkan Sasieni is a very nice smoke. My expectations were not let down. It’s a great English, thick smoke that isn’t to over powering. It’s a great after dinner smoke or paired with a nice bourbon.

    Lovely smoke

    Rich, complex, smooth with an exotic room note this is a good one for the eye opener with coffee or watching the sunset as the last rays fade. Not harsh or overpowering but rich is flavor, the product of a master blend.

    pipe tobacco

    Posted by Franklin Gerechter on 2nd Jun 2020

    Long time cigar smoker and reviewer, new to the pipe game. Right now I think, it's more about learning about the craft of pipe smoking than the pipe tobacco. I like the taste and it feels very comforting when I puff away. However, it's more learning, as tobacco has a tendency to go out. I believe that is me and not the tobacco.

    Another worthy blend

    Posted by Max Miles on 3rd May 2020

    This is an easy blend to smoke and not as robust as other Latakia blends. The tin I received was a little dry for my preference but not so much that it hinders me from enjoying it.

    This is the third tin. I know I haven’t finished my other two but I like it that much. I have 24 blends but I have those on those on the back burner. I like the light Smokey that dissipates into the tangy and light sweetness at the latter half of the bowl. Pipe- Peterson Deluxe 20s

    My Holy Grail

    Posted by Ken Hartle on 18th Jan 2020

    Balkan Sasieni is by far my favorite, daily blend. A great latakia oriental forward Balkan blend. A fantastic ribbon cut that is easy to pack, easy to light and easy to smoke. The taste is rich, creamy and smooth. The room note has a fantastic incense aroma and the aftertaste and beard note are sublime. There is a reason this has been around for 100 years. It's a great blend that is reasonably priced. Over 50% of my cellar consists of Sasieni and I'm sure it will continue to grow. One word of advice. It smokes great out of the tin but if you let it breathe in a mason jar for a week or two, it becomes an even more incredible smoke.

    Great balkan

    I am relatively new to pipe smoking (appropriately 4 months), so my palette has not developed yet to that of a novice smoker. However, my experience with this blend was fairly pleasant. Upon opening the tin I noticed the smell of a long burning campfire. The tobacco is tightly pressed, which I assume is to retain moisture content in packaging. While loading my cob, I found the tobacco to pack easy. After loading I was able to get it lit off one match. The room note is the same as the tin note deep smokey woodsy, but I noticed when retro-hale it gave a slight peppery taste, which really caused me to salivate. I found this blend to behave very well and doesn’t need constant relights. I know that I will get flack from tobacco snobs, but I found that after smoking 1/3 of a bowl and revisiting the bowl about an hour or so later smoothed out the taste, making it more pleasing to smoke. Overall I enjoyed this blend and will be ordering several more tins. I already have one set aside to age for the next year or so.
