Instead of adding Virginia to this Balkan blend, Brebbia has added a large amount of Dark Fired Kentucky to give the blend a rich, earthy, and smoky flavor. Blended by Planta in Denmark, this pipe tobacco is one that is sure to smoke well now, one year from now, 5 years from now, and so on. In other words, this is a great aging tobacco.

Love this! I was looking for a match for Sherlock Holmes Pipe Club's Great Hiatus which is no longer around, and this fits the bill perfectly.
A very good substitute for Balkan Sobranie. If you are waiting to Balkan Sobranie to become available don't pass this up. I think it is the tobacco you should try to see if it is doesn't satisfy you as well as Balkan Sobranie.
This oriental forward English blend with Kentucky/Latakia/Oriental is smooth and well balanced and excellent ANY time of day including special occasions. This is my first experience with Syrian Latakia and now I understand what folks mean when they discuss Syrian Latakia it makes a noticeable difference. Try this blend and begin to understand One of the best Balkan’s in limited existence.
This has become a great go to when I want that complex oriental blend. It has the burn and flavor of a well aged tin right from the box.
