Gawith Hoggarth & Co.: Balkan Mixture 50g

Product Number: 003-069-0002

Founded in Kendal, Gawith, Hoggarth & Co. has fashioned quality pipe tobacco since 1887, utilizing processes and techniques that date to 1792. The Cumbria-based company prioritizes natural tobacco flavor, and in many of their mixtures, Gawith, Hoggarth & Co. maintains the standards enforced by the United Kingdom's strict purity laws of the 19th and 20th centuries — such laws dictating how much and what type of flavorings could be added to pipe tobacco and ensuring that sub-quality leaf wasn't hidden under the veil of exorbitant toppings.

Balkan Mixture is an archetypal Balkan blend, featuring Virginias, Orientals, and Latakia. While both Balkan and English blends are known for their use of such components, Balkan mixtures traditionally emphasize Orientals; whereas, English blends focus more on Latakia — a subtle variation but one that makes Gawith, Hoggarth & Co.'s Balkan Mixture an ideal choice for pipe smokers drawn to Orientals-centric blends.

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

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
独特的巴尔干!
January 18, 2021
Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Balkan Mixture Bulk
有句话这样讲:这个东西你可以不用,但是你不能没有。GH这款混合巴尔干就是这样,它并不是我抽过味道最好的巴尔干,但偶尔总会想起,随即拿出来满一斗,所以我常备上。燃烧均匀,口味微淡,烟量适中,不算柔和,奶油味一般。

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

Best Balkan Ever!

Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Balkan Mixture Bulk
In many years smoking a lot of different tobaccos, including English and Balkan mixtures, this imho is the best!
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

라타키아라고하면 최고의맛을 자랑하는 사무엘가윗의 발칸이다 라고해도 아무도거절못할것이다 사무엣가윗의집안인 가윗호가스 이회사의연초이니 분명 그DNA는 분명살아있다고 본다 첫번째는 강도가 별4개이다 그만큼 처음부터 강하게 라타키아의베이스가 강하게올라온다 그만큼 처음부터 강도는 충분히 느껴진다 향또한 강하게 표현한다 둘째.맛의향연은 분명 다른 라타키아혼합율인 잉글리쉬계열중 꽤나 강하게 느껴지고 발칸의 그리움이 어느정도는 씻겨질것이다 발칸의... 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.

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

I bought this based on the positive reviews alone. I've had my share of Balkan blends and medium to heavy English blends. This is as weak as a popcorn fart in a whirlwind. Strength rated 4? Nope, more like a 2. Room note is pleasant, taste is typical... Read More

Latakia but not very Balken
November 30, 2018
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 one dimensional. I have to blend it with something else to get a balanced smoke. I do like several other balkans so it’s not that I don’t l... Read More
Very good. Bad timing.

Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Balkan Mixture 50g
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.

A delightful easy smoking English blend. It is a rich full-bodied blend, but a very smooth rich mahogany of flavors.

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

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
