The difference between balkan and english style tobaccos are the proportions of the Latakia to the Oriental and Virginia leaves. This is a medium bodied balkan blend, and has a decent level of smooth Oriental tobaccos present. This tobacco has a moderate nicotine level, so it is best enjoyed by a smoker looking to relax or smoke after a meal. Order your tin of Balkan Mixture tobacco today!

Excellent service thank you!
Purchased in bulk, as I'm a regular smoker of Balkan Supreme. This has a good flavor, though is a bit wet, and thus tends to leave a rather large dottle.
I really enjoy this blend! A nice floral taste when you light up that I really enjoy!
Not a bad blend for fans of Latakia searching for a subtle sweetness to their smoke. The Latakia is smokey and earthy - balanced well by the Virginia and condimental tobaccos added. I'm supposing that the little sweetness is due to the infamous Lakeland additive from this historic manufacturer. All in all, I really enjoy this blend. The cut is a little stringy, and I do opt for a little dry time for a bowl's worth (20 mins suits me). Patiently puffed, this blend burns cool and well leaving little dottle or moisture to worry about. Great for a late night smoke while buried in the pages of a good book.
