Product: Arango Balkan Supreme Bulk
I've been pipe-smoking for 45+ years and "grew up" with the OLD Balkan Sobranie, Dunhill 965 and Standard Full, Rattray's Red Rapp and Black Mallory as well as Bengal Slices, State Express, etc. While I have found nothing like these old bl... Read More

Personal opinion ... Better than the Dunhill's Nightcap. Delicious Latakia. A beautiful tobacco when you take a walk in nature.
My favourite so far!

I really love this one! At the moment I'm also smoking McClelland No.1 Grade Balkan, Peter Stokkebye English Oriental Supreme, and Cornell & Diehl Super Balkan. I enjoy them all, but Balkan Supreme by Balkan Supreme stands out for me. No noticeab... Read More

Wonderful "walking mixture"

Product: Arango Balkan Supreme Bulk
I think I found this mix from reading someone's review of something else that was similar but disappointing. But this fine balkan mixture is wonderful. The latakia is strong here, which you should be expecting, but there is enough roundness under it ... Read More

[Tin/Bag - Old shoe leather, then a little smokiness. Moisture ready to go.] Great-Full-Balkan. Smooth blue Latakia conjures in the mind upon light. Not super heavy in the smokiness. A little lemony tang and spice. No burning candles quite, w... Read More

After reading all of the rave reviews, I was really looking forward to trying this blend. I was disappointed to find it's just another run of the mill Balkan. I would have recommended Balkan Blue instead, but that's no longer an option. The search... Read More

Latakia and Orientals come through indivisually for pleasantly tasty smoke.At least 1 bowl per day for me.
Robust, cool smoking english blend.

Balkan Supreme is a nice smoke, very smooth, doesn’t get hot and is well balanced. I can see myself smoking more of this cool smoking Latakia blend, so I will stock up.
Full of Flavor, a Winner

One of the best Balkan blends I've had. A real beautiful smoke that delivers a full and balanced flavor that lasts all thru the bowl. Matches perfectly with a well made porter.
Everyday smoke!

The most band for your buck, period! Great every season for a pipe smoker.

Product: Arango Balkan Supreme Bulk
调味的质量差次不齐,上佳者如海军方块,糟糕者不胜枚举。但是English,Balkan大多可抽。此款草虽算不上如何精妙,但是也较好的展示了 Latakia的风味,终归是对的起烟斗,对得起这一斗的时光。可以给一个优秀。用法语来说,够不上parfait,但是 très bien。

I like a variety of tobaccos but usually smoke aromatics, VaPers, and OTC. But this stuff is good. When I first smelled the tin note I thought "wow, that's a lot of smokey smell" and stored it for a few months. Opened it again and it was... Read More

After sampling a few bowls of Arango, I can easily understand how most lovers of Balkan blends find this mixture appealing & I concur with some of the other reviewers in that it is somewhat similar to the BSOM. However, although similar it seems ... Read More

Product: Arango Balkan Supreme Bulk
This was a pleasant surprise, and you should try some. The tin note is smokey and pleasant, and the smoke is full and tasty. It consistently burns cool all the way to the bottom leaving clean ash with no relights. Nicely done.
Excellent Balkan

I smoke a fair amount of traditional English and Balkan blends and this Balkan is exceptional.

Product: Arango Balkan Supreme Bulk
Bulk buy. Somewhat moist but smokeable right from the bag. This one seems to need to be a bit moist. Initial bag notes are Latakia and more Latakia. Underneath the Latakia is some sweetness likely from the cavendish. Lights easy and stays lit well. F... Read More

Going back in the time machine, this reminds me of my beloved Sullivan's 00, which disappeared from the world stage decades ago. Concur with the chorus of 4.5-5-0's. A perfect marriage of latakia based tabacs.
