Product: Balkan Sobranie Balkan Sobranie 50g
Never had the chance to try this one, because It's never in stock, I use to check it here every day for a year, I gave up. With so many good tobaccos on the market today I'm very happy with the selection I have, to be great It has to be in production... Read More

Just a few hours after the e-mail, I miss it again
Good English, definitely nowhere near the top.

Product: Balkan Sobranie Balkan Sobranie 50g
Medium bodied smoke, you get enough lat, but it's not really an extraordinary English. Lots of better choices out there, consider some of the more readily available gawith and pease Englishes before you scramble to buy this harder to get blend - whic... Read More

다신 못 구할거 같아서 아꼈지만 태워봄. 희귀성만큼은 아니지만 충분히 훌룡한 연초. 고운 연기와 고급진 느낌은 있으나 눈에 불을 키고 구할 정돈 아님.

Germain's Balkan Sobranie is a fantastic Balkan mixture. Super smooth, blended perfectly. Latakia plays a front role but is not overwhelming. Highly recommended.
Good

This is a hard to find tobacco unless you go to the secondary market. I enjoy this but enjoy other English tobaccos better. I’ll see how it grows on me.
Overhyped

Product: Balkan Sobranie Balkan Sobranie 50g
I was really interested in buying some, seeing how hard it was to come by. But I have since then tried a very well-kept tin from (I think) the 40s or 50s, which was a little dry (but moistened back up with a small piece of orange peel), inherited by ... Read More

Product: Balkan Sobranie Balkan Sobranie 50g
All negative comments and weak ratings(such as my own) serve a single purpose : keep as many pipe smokers away from this blend as possible...so that more of i5 is left for me ;)

Just like every other pipe smoker on the planet I really wanted to try this. I signed up for email alerts thinking it would never happen. Low and behold a yahoo mail message pops up at the top of my screen saying it’s in stock on Friday the 13th. Log... Read More

Product: Balkan Sobranie Balkan Sobranie 50g
Without question this was the most anticipated tin I have ever opened. So it was very perplexing when I got tongue bite, tongue bite, tongue bite. Every bowl. I've never had tongue bite from a Balkan before. Not sure what to make of this. Is anyone e... Read More

This is a fine smoke. Not worth the hype or hassle of hunting a tin down. Damn good but,not great.

The king of balkans! Is it worth 100.00 a tin, no. But is it good, absolutely. It’s tangy,Smokey and sweet at the same time. Don’t pass up the chance to try this.
Over-hyped or well deserved?
June 29, 2018
Product: Balkan Sobranie Balkan Sobranie 50g
I think it's both over-hyped and well deserved. The scarcity of Balkan Sobranie has elevated it to mythical status, which is just a bit over-doing it IMO. Some of the prices I've seen just are not warranted. Having said that, I want to be perfectly c... Read More

My buddy brought this over to try. After waiting for over a year, I finally got a chance to try it. It was worth the wait. The tin note was nice. Rarely, is that the case with a balkan. You could taste the latakia and orientals, but they were not ove... Read More

Having not had the opportunity to smoke the original when it came out I can’t speak to a true comparison but I have smoked the old Balkan Sobranie with a lot of age. I don’t really find the blinds to be similar but this one stands on its own is a goo... Read More

Finally I snagged a few tins of this blend. I'll start with the presentation in the tin. When I first opened the tin and looked at the contents I was a little surprised. First the mixture is not homogeneous in any respect. The Latakia is signific... Read More

Product: Balkan Sobranie Balkan Sobranie 50g
I usually don't enjoy latakia, but i do enjoy a balkan blend from time to time. This one is smooth and bold with good sourness from the orientals and slight smoke from the Latakia. Gregory V if you read this review try Arango Balkan Supreme it is ver... Read More
Cigarettes?

Product: Balkan Sobranie Balkan Sobranie 50g
I know this is it usual but… Years ago I was an occasional cigarette smoker and I really enjoyed the cigarettes made from this brand. Is the cigarette tobacco anything like the pipe tobacco?
Disappointed:(

Enjoyed the original many moons ago. Put my name on the list to try the new one out. Finally got some, opened it up looked and smelled fantastic. Waited a few days until I was off work to try it, opened it up, and found mold growing on it. I was very... Read More

Product: Balkan Sobranie Balkan Sobranie 50g
It's deeply came to me with amazing satisfaction. It was totally different with other balkan or other latakia. It was new and perfect one ! I'm missing it.

I don´t know if this tobacco have the same strength, flavor and intensity that 70's or 80's sobranie, but anyway this sobranie is a spectacular tobacco with a Latakia very present from start to finish. This stuff have cool somoke, something light and... Read More

Product: Balkan Sobranie Balkan Sobranie 50g
Very rich complex flavors.. Worth every penny! I don't see how someone can give it "one star" based on them missing the drop..? Be patient your time will come..
Tasty enough, but.
July 25, 2015
Product: Balkan Sobranie Balkan Sobranie 50g
Exceptionally over-hyped based on the name alone. Nice english, occasionally a hint of soap on the lat. Perfectly worth buying here, and wildly overpriced on the secondary market everywhere else.

I had the good luck to come across a previously opened but sealed tin, half full, stored in a consistent temperature. I feel I need more time to deliberate upon the subtley. Primarily floral notes upon the nose, delicate once humified. Flavour stran... Read More

A smooth mellow blend that is simply delicious. If you are even remotely interested in Balkan blends, you owe it to yourself to try this. I will endeavor to keep this easy smoking, great tasting blend stockpiled from now on.

To enjoy this blend, the best way is use a pipe with small bowl. Medium strangth was fascinated me, nearly full taste was enchanted me. I like this blend, holp it will be steady supplied.

Is this the same as the original?
June 26, 2014
Product: Balkan Sobranie Balkan Sobranie 50g
This used to be my favorite English blend before it became so hard to get. My favorite came with a black label and I think it was called Mixture #759. My 5 star rating is based on the original blend but I have never tried this newer iteration.

Legendary. Men wept when the original supply was discontinued. Very happy to see it reintroduced. Not all will try it, but those who do will weep again. For joy.

Is it as good as the original? Who knows for sure, really? But dried out some, this is a pretty terrific blend for a special occasion.
