Balkan Blue (formerly Blue Mountain) was created by McClelland for the 2011 Balkan Sobranie 759 Throwdown at the Chicagoland Pipe and Tobacciana Show, and it won the People's Choice Award.
This blend, based upon a 21 year-old sample of 759, uses rich Latakia, bright Orientals and superb Virginias to achieve a bold, yet smooth flavor that will take you back.
Excellent. It is a bit more spicy, complex and rich than my favorite McCelland, Arcadia, but I know I will return to this blend frequently. A light/medium English with plenty of complexity, tang and spice. Highly recommended.
I bought this for my husband and a friend as a gift, they both loved it. Great flavor!
This is an Outstanding tobacco with a notable richness and subtlety that can be found in no other. Highly recommended.
