Great strong Balkan/ English mixture. Floral, smokey from latakia good, cool burning, good strength. Terrific tobacco. Smoke slowly and savor the flavor and aroma. Even Mrs B likes the room note. Very well balanced blend.
I like it a lot!

Great, strong balkan tabaco mixture. Cut is really rough mixed with broken flakes, it needs some work before packing but you are rewarded with nice and rich smoke all the way to the bottom of bowl.
A Fantastic Balkan - Good Balanced Smokey Latakia Presence With Some Zesty Prickles, Fullness, and Sweets Here And There

Product: Cornell & Diehl Super Balkan Bulk
[Tin/bag - Nice campfire smokey with a little of the new tire smell. A little note of sweet browness. Some serious flake kinda ground into this. Pulled a little piece of intact flake (1/8"x1/4"). So, a little rub here and there for any chunkiness... Read More

Perfect moisture and texture straight out of the tin. What a great smoke! The flavors are complex and rewarding. C&D hit it out of the ballpark with this one. Highly recommended!!!

This mixture has broken flakes of Virginia mixed in with the other ribbon cut tobacco. The flavor is smooth and slightly spicy. Wonderful and not overly strong.
My go to Blend.

Super Balkan is my go to, everyday blend. When I'm not sure what to pick, I pick this. I've smoked more of this than any other blend. The taste? You know that smell when you're walking in a forest a day or so after a rain, and the temp is just right?... Read More
Extremely Buttery, Verdant, Herbaceous, Piquant and Woody

Product: Cornell & Diehl Super Balkan Bulk
Wow. Initial light was all the above in extreme… this is the brightest and most assertive Balkan I’ve had to date! The Orientals are front and center; they’re verdant, herbaceous, zesty and buttery. There’s a nice citrusy and grassy sweetness from ... Read More

敢看外形:干湿很好,但v草切片不甚精细,常有大块未切得切片存在。香气清雅,带着l草的味道,但是不浓郁,留在嘴里的味道却很悠长喜欢l草味道重的朋友不妨加十分之一的纯l草再抽吸。烟气干爽,烟量小,不辣不燥。总的来说中规中矩,配比得宜,没有什么瑕疵。劲道中等向上一点,做口粮很好。

Product: Cornell & Diehl Super Balkan 2oz
几年前我购买了一些,最近找出品尝。我是巴尔干爱好者,在今年只抽吸不同品牌的巴尔干式调配。这款草在我心里的排名是不出众的,刚点火时它会带给你非常熟悉的巴尔干味道,来的迅速猛烈,烟气柔和伴随着果香微甜。但在你意犹未尽时这种感觉很快消失,并不能持久,而且你后续也找不回来,中尾段差劲,把分数给它的最初。
It’s okay

There’s no way this is a full strength blend. I all components are there but nothing special pops out for me on this blend to make a repeat buy. I found it slightly oriental forward and bitter at times.
Good stuff!

A lovely smoke. Not as strong as advertised, maybe a 4/5 in reality. Still, this is one of the best I have found for those who would like to smoke Nightcap or Gaslight constantly but need something in bulk to stock the pantry.

Product: Cornell & Diehl Super Balkan Bulk
Brokenhearted that McClellan is not around anymore. Used to love their #1 Grade Balkan. This one smokes a bit lighter, but has a pronounced Turkish leaf presence that I enjoy a lot when I am in the mood for it. I add a pinch of Latakia to deepen the ... Read More

Product: Cornell & Diehl Super Balkan Bulk
This is just faintly sweet and the Latakia is in good proportion. The Balkan leaves add a slight sour note that is not unpleasant. This burns very well, fine white ash, few delights, and is very cool.

Product: Cornell & Diehl Super Balkan Bulk
刚入口挺惊喜的,毕竟价格摆在这里,L草的烟熏味夹杂着淡淡的奶酪香气还有V草的果酸,中后段急转直下,果酸奶酪直接消失,取而代之的是烟草和微辣的烟熏,基本每一斗过二分之一就结束了,短途打个牙祭挺好,反正便宜不心疼。

Interesting Latakia blend
January 28, 2024
Product: Cornell & Diehl Super Balkan Bulk
This blend is close to Plum Pudding by the taste and quality, though it is surely not the same. The components play harmoniously, creating a great and rich taste: sweet and sour, nutty and leathery notes, and more. I really enjoy this tobacco.
Buy in bulk, because your going to smoke this a lot.

我的日常斗粮 my go to blend
February 11, 2023
Product: Cornell & Diehl Super Balkan Bulk
非常偶然的一次机会,一个朋友分给了我4盎司的超级巴尔干,非常甜美的一款英式调配,燃烧速度偏慢,不会咬舌。烟气干爽饱满,劲道适宜。口味丰富而饱满,回味相当悠长,基草种类很多,比例恰到好处。在解决烟瘾的同时提供美妙的感官刺激。cd家草价合适,不会对钱包带来任何负担。不知道抽什么的时候我通常会来上一斗超级巴尔干,在我心中他就是英式调配本身。
一款偏重的巴尔干调配

It's not as good as Pirate Kake, but you can enjoy the aroma of Latakia. It's not bad, but compared to the competition, Pirate Kake is the better choice.

I like this kind of blend as a first smoke of the day. Mainly a Oriental/Burley with Latakia, I prefer Sutliff's Heavy English although this blend would be a good alternative. Good stuff.
