Balkan Supreme

The classic flavor and aroma of Balkan blends fall within the full-bodied family of tobaccos. Balkan Supreme uses no flavoring in its blend, is loose cut, and contains a generous amount of Latakia. Some of the finest Orientals and old belt Virginias are also mixed into this tobacco. Balkan Supreme's traditional English blend is finished off with Black Cavendish and Turkish Samsun. One of the best Latakia blends available today, Balkan Supreme is a satisfying experience, and well worth trying along with the rest of the Balkan pipe tobaccos available on P&C.

Balkan Supreme
What to smoke while you're trying to figure out what to smoke. Everything is good. This is not going to knock your socks off and that's fine. Possible all day every day smoke. Cool, spicy, balanced, unadulterated "this is why I smoke a pipe" 1st half of bowl. Sour burley with good aftertaste starting at the midway point. DGT=Good. Wow Factor=Medium. Re-order Factor=Yes. Condition= excellent spongy ribbons. Latakia is there, but, not a lat bomb. Nicotine=medium to just a bit below medium. 5 stars maybe generous, but, it just seems to get better with each bowl.

I like
Nice smoke. Plenty of latakia. Good starting point for a lat heavy blend. I like to add a little bright leaf. Will buy again.

Decent
I usually smoke English blends like Nightcap and Pirate Kake. This blend was decent for an all day smoke but I prefer something a bit more robust.

This Blend Is A Winner!
This is a very smooth, and flavorful Balkan. Nothing here is overdone, it great burning and cool smoking. I find it to be a very balanced blend with nothing taking the lead. The Latakia is nice and smokey but not overpowering. The Virginia's are hay like with just a hint is citrus. The Orientals have a nice tingle, and the Black Cavendish adds just the right amount of sweetness. Zero bite, and burns to a fine white ash with little dottle. I'm a huge fan of Dunhill My Mixture 965, and Balkan Supreme just took over the top spot in my rotation. If you're a fan of English/Balkan blends, you owe it to yourself to give this one a try!

Great Value and Ratings are Right On
I bought a pound and will never regret. Everything else is in storage now. Except my other McClelland Balkans and Frogs. It burns better than about everything I own.

Really good stuff
Really impressed with this one. Great flavor, easy to light and no bite at all.

Balkan Supreme - Bulk
I have been a pipe smoker since the mid-1960s. Back then there was a local tobacco shop in Phoenix which sold “Phoenix Blend.” In subsequent years I have searched for a match to that blend but to no avail. I read the description of the Balkan Supreme – “The classic flavor and aroma of Balkan blends fall within the full-bodied family of tobaccos” - and thought Balkan might duplicate my early Arizona pipe experiences. Balkan is in the family but not the one for me. Objectively – it is mild, traditional and pleasant. I like it but will keep searching. My grandchildren say it smells like brush fire.

THIS IS THE ONE
Great english balkan tobacco, perfect cut, taste, room note, burn quality, no bite, packs well. What else can I say this blend has it all. If you appreciate quality try at least a two once package, you won't be sorry. I promise you you will order more in the near future. I order Balkan Supreme on a regular basis.

Worth Every Once!
I just can't find any better words: A Great Tobacco, At A Great Price, From A Great Store! If you like "English/Balkan" blends then you have to give this mixture a try. IMO the Latakia is just right, and the Cavendish gives it just the right amount of sweetness. This is a well balanced smoke, right to the bottom of the bowl. Also, you just can't beat the customer service!

A Fantastic Smoke

Balkan Supreme vs. Dunhill Mixture 965
If you like Dunhill Mixture 965, you're sure to like this. Based on some reviews and mostly on what I seen (appearance of the picture), both reminded me of Mixture 965. Upon opening it smelled like 965, smooth & cool smoke, and taste's soo close, you'd be fooled in a blind test. I think it's as close as you'll get and costs less. As always, P & C delivers fast and continues to be the best in service, price, selection, and the list goes on. Just can't say enough good about this company. As long as I smoke P & C will be my source.

Multiple layers of flavor and aroma
Another favorite to put in the rotation. It has it all... forward is mild spice and smoky hit with an almost roast cocoa aroma followed by sweet-grassy-hay and a vague touch of sugar from the Cavendish. Moisture content is perfect. One light-tamp-light did it for the whole bowl but it's not a fast burner. Tons of smoke and no bite just the pleasant tingle of a good blend.

Great!
At first the latakia is a little overwhelming. After jarring and let sit for day or two it mellows out and becomes an excellent smoke. Really great a worthy substitute for Stokkeby's.

A good Balkan.
The Balkan is one of, if not the one, of my favorite smokes. The herbal like wordiness is what I like. This Balkan, like the Sasienni, honors the breed

Latakia it its best
I have tried many Balkan style tobaccos. I can't really say that any of them were bad or even sub-par. I never really found one that got it right for me. This one does. It has a nice, naturally sweet, smoky, Latakia taste for me. No casings, no chemical taste. Burns nice, easily lit, little Dottie and what else can I say?

Good But Not Great
After all the positive reviews on this tobacco I expected to be blown away. I wasn't. A good quality smoke but not enough Latakia for my taste. I will keep it in the rotation but won't re-order. In my view it can't hold a candle to McClelland Balkan Blue, which may very well be the finest tobacco I've ever smoked.

Balkan Supreme - Bulk
Not my idea of a true Balkan. It was too dry and, therefore burned too fast. The result was that the distinctive taste of what I have experienced as a Balkan mixture was lost or, perhaps, never present to start with.

Tobacco arrived dry. Has to be smoked very slowly otherwise will bite.

Just save some for me
I smoke a lot of Balkan, this blend has found a home. Smooth, full flavor, never a bite down the straight and narrow honest tobacco. If you like or ever wanted to try Balkan blend make this a sure try, and the burley is excellent for added depth. Honest, a great smoke

Great blend!
It is bolder and richer than the Mccelland Balkan Supreme. It is as rich fresh (moist) as it is after is has dried out. This is my daily blend and the Mccelland blends I smoke lightly for variety.

Slipped a bit
This is my favorite bulk tobacco but, this last shipment arrived dry, and ribbon cut. P&C get high marks from me so i guess everything cant be perfect, maybe the next batch will be back on track.

good balkan
even though i got what looked like the broken pieces at the bottom of the bag, this was quite good. burns well, smells great. i would call it a good everyday balkan. reminds me of PS Proper English with a bit more flavor. i enjoy the fine cut also. packs well.

Supreme is the right name for this Balkan
Here is a Balkan blend that delivers in every way I appraise the tobacco I pack in my pipes. Burns smoothly, doesn't produce a 'bite' (and I do tend to puff often as I smoke reading books on my patio), very satisfying taste overall (though I admit I don't have a highly developed palette to distinguish each of the types of tobacco in the blend), and a very good price to value. I alternate between Proper English and Balkan Supreme, smoking through about a pound of one then the other. Others have been more descriptive of what this blend offers, so I'll just second those with the highest praise and urge those who want to give a Balkan a try or expand on their experience of this type not to delay the gratification they'll find in this one.

Customer Testimonials
This is my all purpose "go to" tobacco. It is not fussy at all about how you pack it or which pipe you smoke it in. The latakia is plentiful and the taste just gets better as you get down to the bottom of the bowl. Plus, you won't go broke buying a pound of it!
This is one of my favorite tobaccos, burns great & the flavor is perfect.
This is my very most favorite tobacco. I'm relatively new to pipe smoking and don't know a lot, but, after trying about 25 different brands, this is the one I smoke every day. I REALLY like it.
You'd be hard pressed to find a better tobacco for the price. A great, deep, woodsy balkan blend.
Very good smoke! Mild, yet flavorful. It has all of the nuances of a campfire. An excellent marrying of the latakia and orientals to give a pleasant, all-day smoke.
Wonderful tobacco. Please don't change a thing. This stuff is perfect!!!
Great flavor, easy smoke, this is a keeper.
Great tasting Balkan. Came in on the dry side and is more of a shag style cut but all in all i will keep this great tasting tobacco on hand.
