This exotic blend is comprised of the best quality leaf with
no artificial flavors. A true English blend of medium body,
the taste is mysterious and unsurpassed. Rich Virginias of
varying cuts are added to smooth Turkish leaf for a taste
reminiscent of the great English blends of old. Hearty
Latakia produces the smoky character that the connoisseur
demands and the inclusion of Perique gives a tangy
undertone. For the smoker who demands the best for his
cherished briars, this blend is sure to please.

This is a go to Balkan blend that I consider my everyday favorite. Sadly, the shop in NYC closed several years ago. I order on the De La Concha website.

Gosh, I love this stuff! I ordered an 8 oz. bucket (the tobacco is wrapped in a bag that is inside the plastic tub) and smoke several bowls each day - next time I'm ordering a lb. (the price is quite reasonable). The mixture is dark; consisting of black, dark brown, and brown flakes. The smell is enticing; that leathery, full body tobacco smell. It smoke clean with a nice volume of smoke and medium nicotine content. The blend seems to be very well balanced. It comes ready to smoke (no drying out or other preparation needed - I hate when you have to dry out a tobacco to smoke it!) It stands up to any English style blend I have smoked and head and shoulders above most. It is a must try for those who haven't experienced this highly recommended blend.
