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.
I've recently started trying Latakia blends again after avoiding them for years due to a bad experience. I tried this after opening my palate to this type with Presbyterian and it's just fantastic. It has that expected "campfire" flavor but in a totally inoffensive way for the smoker (room note will probably not be appreciated by non-smokers). When I tried it in a churchwarden a more complex flavor emerged and I'm totally loving it. It's bold but never harsh, just what I wanted in an English blend. Now I'm going to have to get another churchwarden just to dedicate to this wonderful blend.
Soft, silky, and smooth. Really enjoyed it.
When I first opened this tin I smell a wonderful, nice flavorful tobacco. Maltese Falcon is a rich, dark, velvety smooth blend that has a remarkable sweetness countered by just the right amount of spice. I even smoke this during breaks at work, I just can't say enough how much I like this English blend.
