Right Up My Alley
I have grown fond of bolder, full flavored smokes. This is no exception!

Great smoke
Whoa talk about good. Latakia is out front with perique coming in second. But what really makes it shine is a good pressing. Squeeze it until it turns dark, let it dry out a bit, and you’ve really got something special. It’s a pain but it’s worth it.

Big, Bold, Beautiful.
This is great. The latakia and perique come out bold. this is a great smoke you don't have to think about. You can smoke this as you hang out and have a conversation with people because you don't have to think about the flavors. They are there in the foreground. However, nothing is very overhwelming. It's put together very well.

An Immediate Favorite
Super Balkan by C&D became an immediate favorite when I first tried a small sample of it order before last. For that reason I ordered a good supply of it on my most recent order. I love Cyprus Latakia and this blend really delivers on that. The Bright Virginia Flake balances this beautifully and creates a synergistic harmony that is further enhanced by the condiment tobaccos used. The other thing I really love about this formulation is the way it consistently delivers on nicotine. Truly an excellent blend in every way for my taste!

A Fantastic Balkan - Good Balanced Smokey Latakia Presence With Some Zesty Prickles, Fullness, and Sweets Here And There
[Tin/bag - Nice and campfire smokey with a little of the new tire smell. A little note of sweet browness. Some serious flake kinda ground into this. Pulled a little piece of intact flake (1/8"x1/4"). So, a little rub here and there for any chunkiness, but not so much needed really. Moisture excellent and ready to be fired up.] Rich, smooth, full, reminds of Stokkebye/Arango Balkan Supreme right away, has a little less of the full mouthfeel roundedness to it, and maybe the Latakia is very subtley more sharp by contrast with the Latakia more prominent, but not a bomb. Some enjoyably slight nose tingle pepperiness on the retro that Arango does not have. A little sweetness rolls out here and there with good fullness too. Additionally, seems a bit more Periquey than Arango (do not think Arango has any), which is a nice difference. Easy burning with little relights down to a small amount of ash at the end. Fairly cool burning, but I did get a little hot in the bowl while fast paced puffing and searching out flavors. Instant relight if you let it burn out. No management issues at all. Not a biter, but keep a finger to the bowl if you start freight training, which for me was very tempting. Full of flavor to the end - Great stuff! I might have to let prices guide me between re-purchases Arango Balkan Supreme or CD Super Balkan, but I surely expect to keep a pound handy, also both are very well priced entirely. This one will go on the re-order a pound or two more list for the future.

Super Balkan
So i'm comparing Super Balkan,Crowley's best,Fiddlesticks,Balkan Supreme,Billy Budd,Mountain Camp,Big & Burley and Byzantium against Dunhill Nightcap. In the order I mentioned. As an English, I find Super Balkan to be very smooth an all day smoke for me. Nightcap still #1 for me. I'm not going into the taste and aroma, I feel everyone has their own sense and taste, but as the Three reviewers have mentioned, this has a very good English feel to it, Smooth and Mellow not to much Nic.

My Daily Go To...
Super Balkan is an incredible blend. My daily smoker. Medium bodied, Smokey, with just a slight sweetness about midway into the bowl.. pairs perfectly with a cup of dark roast coffee. If you are a fan of peppery, Smokey English blends give a super Balkan a try!

Good Enough
This balkan blend is good enough. I am always looking to finally find something that will curl my toes. This is not a toe curler, but it is a good blend.

A solid latakia forward blend
I found this blend to be very smooth and full on the flavors in the smoke. Definitely latakia forward which I like. It is a nice medium strength tobacco, great for a late afternoon smoke
