Balkan Sobranie

Balkan Sobranie Original Smoking Mixture is one of the most legendary Latakia-based blends in history. Dating back to around the 1920s, this is a combination of wonderful Virginias, excellent Orientals and enough Latakia for a robust and flavorful mixture. The balance of tobaccos gives the smoker a sweet and smoky experience, with a finish unlike anything else. The aroma is so bright that it has an incense-like scent that will thrill the senses. Since the Original has gone through a number of iterations over the years, it’s impossible to say if it will remind you of the one you smoked years ago, but it’s a terrific smoke in its own right.

Recently Pipes and Cigars added an "Attention" to their offering of Balkan Sobranie. They suggested trying their White Knight due to their inability to keep up with the demand of B.S. I concur wholeheartedly. I've stopped smoking B.S. Mainly due to lack of availability and purchased 10 tins of W.K. It's a superior blend and tastes more like the 1970's original version of B.S. that I remember, and I still have 8oz of that 70's blend in storage. W.K. also costs 1/3 the price of B.S. Even with B.S offered by other vendors, when available, at a lower price, W.K. Is still less expensive. I still say that W.K. Is the best tobacco I've ever smoked in all of my 51 years of pipe smoking. Try W.K. And see for yourself !
For those who can't obtain Balkan Sobranie give Balkan Sasieni a try---similar condimental tobaccos and similar taste, or for a great substitute try White Knight ----it tastes to me like the Balkan Sobranie of the 1970's. For those with tongue bite try rinsing with S.T. 37---an oral pain reliever product which you can order from your Drug Store---it works great !---although I dilute it with a "small" amount of water (experiment).
At $34.00 a pop this blend should be good, and it is. In 1968 I was in Ireland and I purchased a peterson pipe and a tin of balkan sobranie. Oh how I loved that stuff and I remember it we'll but the new blend is not the same. However it stands on its own and is a major delicious tobacco none-the- less. I also give it a rousing 10 !
This blend, although hard to find is well worth the wait. Its a smooth and steady latakia all the way down, a great burning blend right out of the tin. Balkan Sobranie is at the top of my favorite list and I recommend you give it a try. I give it a solid 10!
