One of the better "British" tobaccos I've tried.
This blend is very well balanced and in my humble opinion, one of the best Balkans on the market. Always consistent year to year.
My go-to Balkan/English. With so many English blends to choose from this has become a favorite. Great consistent flavor at bulk pricing. This is the blend I compare all Latakia blends to.
This is a tangy, slightly sweet, and adequately pungent Balkan mixture that’s quite enjoyable ... especially for the price point. I’ve paid more for Balkan blends that don’t compare in quality to this one. I suspect with some jar time this blend will shine even more. On top of all this ... Tobacco Pipes is top notch hands down! They’re my first stop shop for pipe & tobacco goods!
You may not rush to call it "supreme" but it is a great value. It is a good smoke, tasty enough with a little bite. It is just a shade dry out of the bag, so be prepared to jar it right away. (It could be just my luck of the batch.)
