Consider this a classic blend. Dan Tobacco creates a strong and memorable Balkan here. Bill Bailey’s Balkan consists of over 40% Latakia and a good dose of DFK. The stronger tobaccos are balanced with bright Virginias and a dash of tart Perique. This one requires a bit of caution for inexperienced smokers, but will be a favorite for Lat lovers.

I’m a big fan of Latakia, and this has 40% Lat. Very nice Balkan blend.
This blend is one of a kind, it’s smoky & floral with strong aroma & have the longest finish on the palate You literally taste what you smell One of my top favorites & it’s not for everyone,,, smoke it slow & take your time with it to get the best out of this artistic blend some tins might needs a bit of hydration
One of the best smooth complex blends. It could be an all day smoke for me.
I’m very impressed with this tobacco I’m a fan of heavy Latakia blends I thought that dark fired Kentucky would make it interesting with the other ingredients and it really does nice strong flavors of Smokey,Spicy,leathery,earthy,grass, like quality a complex smoke possibly my current favorite.
This is only the 2nd English blend I've ever smoked, so I can't really give that great of a review compared to English blends in general. I like this blend about as much as I like the other English I've smoked! Nice and spicy, peppery. Very nice flavor.
I accidentally bought this blend instead of the Old Ironsides I originally wanted online in 2006. I received a 1lb bag and could not have been happier. Outstanding English blend that got me through several tough days.
The smell from the tin was absolutely amazing but unfortunately, it didn't seem to translate much to the smoke. I found the initial light to be very smooth and mellow with many nuanced flavors, none of which really stood out on their own. The profile picked up slightly further down the bowl but never quite reached the strength I was expecting. Good smoke overall, not sure the 4 out 5 strength rating is appropriate though.
Excellent English Blend; medium strength with a nice amount of Latakia for the smokey, campfire smell and flavor that English lovers crave. Highly recommend!
Had a pipe full this morning and loved it. Great English blend, strong, but not too strong with an abundance of Latakia for you Latakia lovers.
