A Great English/Balkan Mixture

After smoking several different English blends and then trying this blend Balkan Sasieni has rapidly earned it's place as first place among my favorite blends of this type. The flavor of the Orientals, the smoky spiciness of the Latakia the sweetness of the Virginias all come through to make this blend flavorful and highly enjoyable. It tasted great in whatever pipe I chose to smoke it in.
Highly Reccomended

From the moment you open the tin, you'll know you're in for a good time. It's hearty yet smooth, and will please just about everyone. It's as fine a Balkan blend as can be!
This is the Balkan! Number one on my hit chart of heavy ories...

Love it, from opening tin, first sniff, to first bowl, first pipe, last puff. What aroma, what savour. If you like strong Latakia and orientals, this is the best blend I've found, although to be fair, some of the G.L. Pease Balkan blends come very close! And they have a range of choices in and around this level. A favourite in my rotation, of Virginias, Aromatic, English, Balkan, during a good day. I recommend this one for any seasoned pipe artist.
It's a classic

Balkan Sasieni is a bewitchingly beautiful blend straight from the tin. After an initial flurry the Latakia settles down and becomes part of a truly beguiling symphony of heartfelt Virginia and delicious Oriental tobacco. This is a medium strength delight and a premium smoke which excels itself by delivering taste and satisfaction. How quality Latakia should be used. It's a classic. Highly recommended. Get some.
Out with the old. In with the new.

Never tried the older mixture. But this one is right up my ally. Lots of very good Latakia which I love. And the orientals and other fine tobacco in this mixture make for a sweet perfume like lovefest in my pipe. Must try. Cheers
