Quiet Nights is not one of those night time tobacco blends that are so strong it will instantly put you out of commission. Instead this tobacco is a lovely symphony of components that make is a flavorful Balkan. The strength and flavor are kept in check. We suggest you order a tin for now, and a couple for a few years down the road--this is an incredible blend to age.

Wonderful, interesting Blend that bridges the gap between a pure Virginia and English tobacco elements. Burns slowly, smoky, complex, Virginia sweetness, moderate strength, with multiple flavors and aromas. I love the way this is cut. Smoked in a large bowl, it allows you time to identify the individual tobaccos used. A new mainstay for me. Pipe Used: Soren Danish freehand clear grain Age When Smoked: 7 months
I love this blend, if you like Balkan's like SPC Plum Pudding, this is a must try. Really like the aroma, taste and room note, my wife likes Aro's more but she doesn't mind the room note, though I do smoke outside most of the time, or in man cave. I would recommend.
This tobacco has everything you'll be looking for, nice bold smoke, cool burn, great aroma. GL Pease hit the spot on naming it, Quiet Nights is the perfect name, it really calms you, makes you think. Enjoy it while reading or having a nice scotch!
Terrific Balkan/English. Tin note is hardwood char, amber resin, and incense. Well-behaved, with a rich mouth feel and no bite. Spice, smoked nuts, and baked dates--it's all here. Equal parts temple, Danish tavern, and patisserie. Surprising and satisfying peppery plum chutney finish. Room note is dead-center between a sailor's sweet comfort and a London parlor. This is a good tobacco. Are you smoking only aromatics, but have been curious about Balkans and Englishes? This blend is a lovely introduction. New to pipe smoking? Quiet Nights is a good way to find out why people want to smoke pipes in the first place.
Love this stuff. Smells great, tastes great. Nice amount of Latakia. Nice smokiness and blending that ages well too. Just like they say. There are swirls if smoke as you open a book and enjoy by the fire with two fingers of your favorite dram!
The balance of components in this blend works extremely well for my tastes. Full of flavor and very well behaved. I will keep this to hand.
Emotionally, I found this tobacco to be less cheery and bright than the aromatics, and heavier than the Virginias I’ve tried. I would use words like “somber” “pensive” and “august” to describe the smoke experience. While I tend to smoke to relax, this is just short of brooding. Maybe “ruminating”. I think it deserves a try from anyone looking for a new experience in pipe tobacco.
Ok flavor but tobacco required constant relighting. A bit discouraging smoke.
