I've been comparing different "Balkan" blends recently. Unfortunately this is completely unlike any other. To those of you unfamiliar with Lakeland Essence let me just say it quite similar to maybe sucking on a bar of soap while sitting beh... Read More
A Nice Blend

Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Balkan Mixture 50g
I tied a tin of this a week or two ago. I enjoyed it quite a bit and smoked up the tin within a few days. Very typical of a Latakia/Oriental type English blend, subtle yet full bodied. Plus it has a slight hint of he "Lakeland Essense" whic... Read More

Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Balkan Mixture 50g
I love Balkan style tobacco, read some reviews and decide to get some. Just opening the tin made comfortable with my decision to purchase. Creamy would be a good description for the whole bowl, sort'a like a comfort food I couldn't leave it alone. T... Read More

This is the first blend I've tried from Gawith and Hoggarth. I must say it's very tasty. Will obtain more in the future.
Best Balkan Ever!

In many years smoking a lot of different tobaccos, including English and Balkan mixtures, this imho is the best!

I purchased two tins two years ago, smoked one and stashed the other for future pleasure, just as tasty but smoother . To me and my taste it's the best English on the market today maybe since the beginning. After aging could be a all day smoke . Next... Read More
Light, faint English blend with Lakeland essence.

Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Balkan Mixture 50g
Delicious tin nose. Comes in a rather fine Ribbon Cut. Moisture in tin is too high, I had to let it dry over night before smoking. BALKAN MIXTURE is a light, mellow, fluffy, one-dimensional, flavoured English mixture. The name is misleading. A real B... Read More
Not as good as the others

Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Balkan Mixture 50g
I’m a big fan of almost everything G&H does but this one does not work for me. The Latakia is overpowering and l have to blend it with something else to tame down the Latakia. Your mileage may vary because it is a high quality tobacco like all G&H.
Very good. Bad timing.

I bought a tin of this and thought it was amazing and just came back to order more of this creamy delicious smoke only to find it out of stock. I’m certainly going to keep my eye out to order more. And more. And even more.

The first draw and everyone after had a soap taste to it and it’s kinda harsh
Great Balken Blend

A delightful easy smoking English blend. It is a rich full-bodied blend, but a very smooth rich mahogany of flavors.
Only let me give two & a half stars

Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Balkan Mixture Bulk
When you open the Pouch, there is of course a heavy smell of Latakia, but it doesn't play the main role. Oriental Tobaccos and quite strong Virginia is striking,and giving this mixture it's name. It#s a wonderful, slow burning balkan, that is a littl... Read More

I knew I was in for a treat when the package arrived and the enticing Latakia aroma was wafting out of the sealed package. Strong indeed but the flavours are top shelf. I'm glad I gave this a try and will be ordering more for sure

Aroma and thick black smoke at the very first, latakia all the way through. This and 965 are my favorites.

First bowl I went crazy because of the "soapy" taste. Was ready to toss. Decided to dedicate a pipe [ to eliminate ghosting] and tried it again and again. Here we go - I truly like it. Smooth, smokey, burns well and kind of haunts me. Shall... Read More

Years ago I used to smoke Balkan Sobranie. I liked the dry taste but found it a bit harsh for a regular smoke. This, on the other hand is a lot cleaner. The Virginia really tempers the taste. Having grown up with a grandfather who, being English, l... Read More
