Tampers & Tools - Rubber Pipe Bits (2 pack)
While they do not tend to fit large, wide bit stems, this is a must have for my pipes. Soft, easy on the teeth & the pipe, you can't go wrong with a rubber bit.
McClelland - Royal Cajun: Dark 50g
This is a favorite of mine out of the three Royal Cajun blends. The Dark blend is a superb smoke. I have smoked many tins of this, and will continue to do so when I am looking for the distinct smoke that it offers.
McClelland - Balkan Blue 50g
Look no further.
This, in my humble opinion, is the very essence of what a Balkan shoud be. I try to keep a tin of this around at all times. If your a connesuer of tobacco, or looking for an all day smoke, consider Blue Mountain. Good in any shape pipe (though I really enjoy it in a churchwarden) Blue Mountain is spicy, deep, complex tobacco that is yet smooth and refined. Try it, but make sure that you can afford additional tins after you have.
G. L. Pease - Charing Cross 2oz
Being a fan of Blue Mountain, I do enjoy a good Balkan. Perhaps more than I enjoy anything else. The addition of Virgina leaf make this appear much lighter than Blue Mountain, but make no mistake, it is every bit as good. Almost. Very smokey, and spicy. I think if your looking for a really top notch Balkan, you won't go wrong with this.
