Cornell & Diehl - Star of the East Flake 8oz
a most tasty blend
I love Latakia. Penzance, Balkan Sobrania, Balkan Sasieni. All wonderfully Latakia rich. This has become one of my favorite blends. Latakia, Turkish and, Virginia (more Latakia of course). After 44 years of endulging in pipes, I welcome Star of The East Flake in my menu.

Balkan Sasieni - Balkan Sasieni 50g
for latakia lovers only!
for those of us who love latakia, this is the blend for you. dry in texture, rich in smoked goodness and, NO bite at all.

Esoterica - Penzance 2oz
My second favorite tobacco
Charming, quant and, full of rich flavor. I am a latakia lover (no burley for me) so this flake is a perfect second to my FAVORITE blend Balkan Saiseini.

Balkan Sobranie - Balkan Sobranie 50g
Availability!
I follow the Machiavalian point of.....availability. This blend is the "BESTEST" tasting blend ever! When available.

Balkan Sasieni - Balkan Sasieni 50g
The most reliable blend.
After 40 years of pipe smoking, and 30 years of "English" type blends, Balkan Sasieni is just perfect for me. I smoked Balkan Sobranie for some 25 years (on and off always as a treat) and this blend is just as fabulous. I was tobacco blender and retail manager to the famous WILKE PIPE SHOP from 1979-93. I have tasted and blended a world of tobacco. I settled on Sobranie and now......Sasieni. For me it is wonderful and most satisfying.
