This blend is a tribute to a great tobacco of the past. Made for a 2011 contest, it was judged to be the closest overall to the dark, balkan-type mixture it was designed to emulate. We hope you enjoy the memory.
This may have knocked my #1 from it's slot in the cellar!

Good on it's own.

I realize that this is the result of a competition to recreate the fabled Balkan Sobraine, but I think it's good on it's own merits. It required little dry time out of the tin, packed and smoked well. It does take some time to settle down once lit; a... Read Morebout 1/3 of the bowl. I find the first part to be a little sharp, though not uncomfortably so. The flavor is remarkably complex throughout and has periods of absolute delight. It is, hands down, my favorite Balkan mixture that contains Latakia other than Syrian (which I prefer). Seems best in a large bowl and requires a lot of abuse before it bites back. -Best Regards, Dave Ray Read Less
