Sutliff Balkan II

While many people have fallen in love with Balkan I, there are those who crave richer and bolder flavors, so Sutliff has created Balkan II with even more rich Turkish Orientals and a larger amount of intense and smoky Latakia. Despite its powerful flavor, Balkan II is smooth and very cool smoking.

Balkan II
I enjoy English tobaccos and this mixture is enjoyable. I can't break it down into the various tastes etc., my palate is not that sophisticated or refined, but I know what I like. I find it tho be a well balanced enjoyable smoke.

My first Sutliff Balkan II
A very pleasant smoke a good burn. There is a small bite. The smell from the Latakia is not heavy but could be heavier. Good burn with white ash.

A heady smoke
A great Balkan, with a good amount of smoky Latakia, it smokes well, with very little bite. Has a great room note, deep flavor, and while not for the light hearted, isn't overpowering. evocative of deep thought, it's aheady smoke and will be enjoyed by the experienced piper.

Give it a try
This isn’t bad by any means. I smoked a few bowls worth and decided the best thing to do would be to put it away for 6 months to see how it ages. I might try adding more lat. if your tastes are more moderate, then I think you’ll enjoy it as is.

Great blend, good smoke
nice blend, pretty smooth with pops of nutty chocolate at times. the orientals are the forward leaf in this blend which i like. No bite even when pushed a little hard. smoked right out of the bag in a missouri meerschaum diplomat (apple). Moisture was spot on with little left at the bottom. Burned fairly cool to white ash. I would definately consider purchasing more in the future

Captivating smoke.
Originally purchased as a mixer. Quickly realized that I liked it straight. Smoky, sweet and a little creamy. Will reorder.

Nice flavor, cool to the
Nice flavor, cool to the mouth, yet I couldn't find that attractive smell i'm always looking for; the idea is to have people say "I like that smell, I like your tobacco"

Tasty Balkan at a Good Price
I’ve smoked a lot of Balkans (my favorite tobacco type). This one is medium on the flavor scale. Just sour enough. Definitely not merely an English. This has substantial oriental content. Get a few ounces and try for yourself. Like me, you may end up ordering a pound the next time around.

Flavor is rich and full. I like it. Reminds me of Balkan Sobranie when I was young.

Balkan II
This is one of my favorite "English" tobaccos, also my first Balkan. I decided to give it a try after reading the reviews. I like the more earthy, more tart flavor all the way to the end. Glad I ordered a lot to last through the fall and winter. I would like to try the Balkan Supreme, just an oz or so to compare.

Sutcliffe balkan 2
Decent blend. Would buy again.

Good Stuff!!
Very good smoke. The latakia does not overpower the varietals. A well balanced balkan. I will definately buy again.

Pure Balkan & Purely Delightful
The Sutliff Balkan II is, for me the ultimate experience in Turkish Orientals and Latakia. Although I don't often smoke it by itself, it is the perfect blending tobacco for those who crave a taste of Balkan flavor with their favorite Cavendish or rum flavor blends. You owe it to yourself to try this if you are fan of good and flavorful Latakia tobacco.

It Ok
Great aroma as I opened the bag, and the flavor of it smoked is good Balkan, however I would have marked this tobacco as medium strength. It does smoke well, but there is a bit of a tongue bite and it has a bitterness as you pass the 1/4 bowel point. I probably would not buy again unless I was blending it into something else. As noted in another review, maybe its just this batch, might try it again down the road.

Great smoke. A good Fox and Hound substitute.
I really like this blend makes a good substitute for one of my all time favorites fox and hound which was backorderd. It's a good all day smoke. If your waiting on fox and hound to come back in stock try some of this. I'll be ordering more of this to complement my favorite because you want something a bit milder on occasion which this is compared to fox and hound. And the service with P&C can't be beat.

Excellent product and great service
Pretty new to pipes. I enjoyed some Latkia blends thay were gifted to me but wanted more economical alternatives. I took a chance on Sutliff bulk and was not disappointed. Excellent quality and service. Smelled good out of the bag and was nice and fresh. Stayed lit and tastes perfect. I will order this again.

Good smoke.
I enjoyed this tobacco,I would recommend this for someone who wants to try a Balkan tobacco. I prefer something stronger, but this is a mild starter.

Sutliff's Balkan II
Heard alot about it and thought Iveould give it a shot. Nice smell in the bag. After light you pick up some spice on chatting. But then it settles down and provides a nice color flavorful smoke.definitely something I would reorder again...

The dark horse of Balkan blends.....?
Trying H&H Chestnut put me on a bit of an English/Balkan bender. I loved the Latakia, and wanted more. I must be the luckiest guy on the wife seems to hate the smell of anything that DOESN'T have Latakia in it! Well, Balkan II recently went on sale at a quite attractive price, so I picked up 8 oz. of it to give it a try, based largely on a review by Dave Whitney, for whom I have much respect. This is simply a wonderful all-day tobacco. It tastes great in the morning with my coffee, great all morning as I work (try mixing it 50/50 with Chatham Manor for a creamy, full bodied treat that you don't have to pay attention to while doing something else). It had a perfect moisture level on arrival, and smokes cool and dry in any and all pipes I own, even those prone to the "gurgles". I honestly think it doesn't get enough credit for what it is and especially for what it costs. This will be a regular part of my rotation. I was hesitant to try it, especially in a larger quantity, due to not getting along well with a few Sutliff aromatics I tried earlier this year, but as i stated in those reviews, that was very likely a question of body chemistry or propylene glycol sensitivity. No issues here... I absolutely love this tobacco for its richness and complexity, for its aroma, for its creamy smoke texture... it will be a permanent part of my rotation, and on sale, the price just can't be beat if you're not ordering by the pound. A solid, flavorful smoke for any time of day. And no complaints from the wife!

Not the same as last time.
Usually this one is pretty good but this time I wasn't that impressed wit it. Usually it's moister, sweeter, and smokier, but this time it seemed to be lacking in all three departments. Shipping took forever which was a bit of a disappointment and each ounce I ordered was under weight. I'm gonna order elswhere next time.
