Peterson Balkan Mixture

Peterson Balkan Mixture is a unique approach to the genre. It contains a significant amount of smoky, black Latakia, along with specially selected Virginias. What sets this blend apart is the addition of sweet and spicy Perique for greater depth and richer flavor. If you prefer your Latakia blends to be rich and complex, you'll definitely want to try Peterson's Balkan Mixture.

A satisfying and relaxing smoke.
I was pleasantly surprised with the unique flavors of this pleasant mixture. the blended aromas were mixed to provide a mellow yet full smoke.

This is a pretty good blend. I find it Virginia forward, noticeable latakia with perique in the background. Overall, a nice relaxing smoke with a good nic hit. I don't think this is for beginners but I'm not here to talk anyone out of a good time. It's not really a Balkan blend but it seems none of them are and if they put the Orientals in this it would really be nightcap with Virginia. I could see myself buying a tin of this from time to time for sure. Yes, va-per-lat sounds stupid, probably why the marketing geniuses over at peterson just went with Balkan.

No replication can beat the real world of Peterson Balkan mixture
No replication can beat Peterson Balkan mixture. Many try and fail as usual. The Peterson Balkan mixture is cool and smokey Latakia just the way I love it.

Great all day
I really liked the Balkan Mixture. If you buy it for the orientals you will be disappointed. But if you read the description you will be delighted. It's just a name. It's a really fantastic tobacco and I will buy it again

Balkan a little misleading
A good blend of Virginias, perique, and Latakia. While this is a solid blend and could be an all day smoke, the Balkan in the name is a little misleading due to it not being oriental forward. It is a more mild blend that I would call a light English rather than Balkan, but there is a light incense flavor on the retrohale and some good spice on the draw. A very solid offering!

It will be added to my repertoire.
Being my first Balkan Mixture, I found it to be mild with a light spicy note at the end of each puff. A touch more flavor would be nice.

Perhaps my favorite tobacco
Rich flavor, no bite. Reminds me of Balkan Sobraini from 30 years ago.

Bring Back the Bulk
Makes for a great morning smoke with a cup of coffee, or three. Latakia is up front by a hair at the top of the bowl. By mid-bowl things come together very nicely. There's more plum/fruit than spice from the perique, and the VA's add a touch of sweetness and bread, and are definitely there in a good amount . It doesn't need to be smoked hard because it produces a lot of smoke by simply sipping. It burns cool and slow. This tobacco, at its price, has entered my morning rotation

Good flavor although not consistent to the end. Need to smoke very slowly avoiding overheating.

While the blend smokes quite
While the blend smokes quite smooth, it's a bit bland for my taste. It would likely be a good transition blend into the realm of English/Balkan, as the latakia is weak. Overall, not a bad blend at all, but it just doesn't suit my palate.

I've been a Balkan smoker
I've been a Balkan smoker in various iterations fi r many years. This blend is a little lighter than the old Dunhill Standard mixture Medium and much lighter than Balkan Sobranie. Thorough!y enjoyable.

Balkan mix
Very “Smokey” almost a hickory note. Enjoyable to be sure. 4 stars due to nicotine being a bit stout for me personally. Moisture content seemed close to perfect, lightly pressed and well sealed tin. No tongue bite, low moisture left in the bowl. All in all a nice smoke. Will buy again!

This is a very nice
This is a very nice blend. Can taste and smell the Latakia. Retrohale isn’t bad. No tongue bite. I sip but if you push this blend than it can burn.

Close but no Sobranie
Lovely stuff. Not a Balkan Sobranie wannabe but still excellent and has a more sort of rugged taste. If I hadn't discovered Balkan Sasieni I would have accepted this as the next best thing.

Time will tell
A little too moist. Once it has some age and a small amount of drying time, this could be great.

Like anything Peterson it is good.
Excellent flavor. When packed very lightly it will burn for better then an hour. The secret is in lightly packing. No burn or bite.. Chuck A.

I can not do a review
Unfortunately, this tobacco was part of my last order at the beginning of March, that did not arrived. I do not have the opportunity to taste it now. But I purchased a tin in January 2017 and I liked a lot because the balance and softness of the Latakia. That was the reason for which I ordered a second tin this year, but sadly, never arrived due to post problems. I am hoping to purchase in the future when this tobacco return to your stock.
