Tasting Notes

A beautifully formed dark flake of pressed Virginias with a generous helping of best Latakia.

Balkan's appearance encourages the pipe-smoker to fill up, relax and enjoy the 'smokey' flavour with copious amounts of smoke. A medium strength smoke with cool and smooth characteristics.

Strength: Medium

I cant believe its taken me this long to try this tobacco (pipe smoker for well over 30 years). I always assumed this would be too strong for my tastes, but this may actually be the smoothest, best balanced tobacco (Latakia blend or otherwise) I have ever tried. When makers describe their products as slow burning and cool smoking, this is exactly how I always expected them to be, but they so rarely were. Medium strength, with enough Latakia to keep things interesting, but not so much that you couldnt use this as an all-day smoke. Easy to rub out, and not too much moisture. Added to my favourites, and will probably be my go-to tobacco from now on. Cant rate this highly enough. Try it yourself, you might just agree.

The Balkan flake is admirable with its leathery intake. Some say its fruity while as others, such as me, goes back to being a child and taking cough syrup… But this time it’s in a better form. No bite and smokes well after being dried.
