I prefer English blends so when I heard about Maltese Falcon from other pipers I had to give it a try. It has a unique flavor and is an enjoyable all day smoke for me. I would recommend you try it if you enjoy English blends. It won’t disappoint.
Maltese Falcon is the English blend personified. Just like the old coffee commercial this stuff is good to the last drop(puff). For me, G.L. Pease has been hit or miss, and this one is a hit in my book. This blend has a spot in my rotation for sure.
It is even more pleasant and flavorful than Quiet Nights in my opinion, and has a pleasing room note. You can smoke this all day if you want. There is no bite to it. It is my most favorite so far of the G. L. Pease. I gave this a try without any knowledge of it. I was extremely happy with my decision to give it a try. I will buy more in the future in larger quantities. I went through it too quickly!
This is smooth, rich and slow-burning. You know it has latakia and Orientals in it, but it is mercifully free of the sourness many of those blends develop as you reach the latter part of the bowl. I'm not experienced (or pretentious) enough to describe the various flavor notes, but I can say if you like English/Balkan blends and haven't tried this one, you're missing a real pleasure.
I initially chose this because I have a good friend from Malta. This stuff is nearly my Platonic ideal of tobacco. Strong (but not overwhelming, by any means), flavorful, smoky, wonderful scent. If I had to choose only one tobacco to smoke for the rest of my life, it would be a hard choice between this and Mississippi Mud. (That is high praise indeed).
I'm a new smoker that just discovered Balkan blends. I loved this tin and it's latakia forward flavor. I'll definitely order this again.
I'm more geared toward the aromatics but kept reading rave reviews about this blend. I ordered a 4-ounce tin thinking that it couldn't possibly live up to the hype. After trying a bowl, I immediately ordered an 8-ounce can. Maltese Falcon soars with the eagles!
One of my favorites! Good tasty blend, One of my 3 steady blends.
I've only been smoking GLP blends for the last two years. I could kick myself for not adding them to my rotation sooner! Maltese Falcon is smooth, flavorful smoke. It's not my favorite GLP blend but it is still worthy of 5 stars.
