English Aromatic Not a Balkan

Product: F & K Sterling Balkan Bulk
What the heck? That hint of sweetness is some sort of berry flavoring that ruins the smoke. Tastes and smells like an Aromatic to me. Yuck.

When I open the packaging I immediately smell the typical smell of Latakia and a slight sweetness. A tobacco that I smoke for the very first time, I smoke first in a meerschaum pipe to experience the real taste. I taste a slight sweetness, not exagge... Read More

Very well balanced. I dont find either of the three components to outshine the other. Sweet and salty flavors, medium to full bodied, Smooth. Found the tobacco had a bit of moisture but easily smokable right away.

This is a dialed down Lancer Slices, yet very smooth and creamy. I love it. Another winner from F&K

I really can't believe how they get so much flavor in three types of tobacco plus the fact that most pipes hold about 3 grams of tobacco. It is to me very satisfying just can't stop with one bowl
Nice and smooth

I smoke mostly English/Balkan blends and picked up an ounce of this to try it out. It was a bit damp out of the bag, but it lit easily, burned well and stayed cool throughout the smoke. Nice flavor and a good room note, the Virginias add just enough ... Read More

not so good

Product: F & K Sterling Balkan Bulk
This is my first try of a balkan blend. Really didn't like. Has a real bite and very little taste or at least not a pleasing one. I plan to give the rest to my neighbor. He will smoke anything.
