    Neill's posted twice now on about the Balkan Sobraine 759 Throwdown. I'm still such a pipe noob that it's silly and I wouldn't know Balkan Sobraine 759 from anything, but conceptually I love this! Anyone have any thoughts?

    I got some pouches of Balkan Sobranie off E-bay a couple of years ago and recently dug one out of the cellar. I was curious as to how old it might be? I don't believe it's more than a few years old and was probably brought over to the US from the EU, where I understand it was available until...

    So, second up on IPSD is some Balkan Flake. Picked this up not long ago so it's prett young. Can I just say wet wet wet? The flakes are thick cut dark colored. They look and smell very nice. But they are almost dripping! Had to let this dry a while. Even after 30 minutes it's still too...

    This stuff looks very bright and the colors are what I expect. Very contrasting darks and light browns. Smells like it's got quite a bit of latakia in it too. Lights fast too. I was very surprised by this since it had a bit of moisture to it. It tastes like a stronger english but not the...

    The masterpieces are flakeless... :D Please accept my offerings fwiw. #3. Rattrays Red Rapparee - an oriental labeled on the tin "English." Smoke it in an oriental-designated pipe or miss the beauty in the 2nd half of the bowl. Very, very nice. #2. Smokers Haven 20th Anniversary...

    What exactly is a Balkan blend? I've only tried a couple, my favorite being SG Balkan Flake. From what I can taste in it, there is a fair bit of Latakia, but what else?

    I recently bought an ounce of bulk that was labeled 'Balkan Sobrani'. From what I gather this is an imitation blend as the original no longer exists and wasn't a bulk tobac anyway? At any rate, I really enjoy this stuff. I love the taste, and the burning qualities are better than anything...

    Ok guys this is my first tobacco review so... hope it goes well! First Impression: I got about 3 ounces of this leaf and opened up the bag to get a pleasant scent. It smelled pretty toasty and was at a perfect smoking moisture level right out of the baggy(Bulk). Next I loaded my pipe up with...

    I'm looking to buy about five pounds, found it for $24.95 per pound but want it less if I can. Must be Peter Stokkebye which is my favorite.

    What exactly is the difference between a Balkan and an English blend? I goggled it, but didn't find an answer. I read that Balkans had orientals, but so don't a lot of English's I have smoked. Anyone point me in the right direction and give me examples and what kinds of tobacco's are what...

    ...and it's all thanks to our very own Brian (Sounds7). I feel like a real pipe smoker now. :D I won't really review the tobacco because there's just enough for a couple bowls and I don't know if I can be objective enough. But it is really a fine tobacco, right up there with the best Balkan...

    As much as I enjoy Pease's Westminster and Abingdon, I'm not getting a hint of nicotine from either. It's not something I need, but I like how a present-but-not-sickening amount of nicotine enhances my relaxation and enjoyment. I've got a tin of Penzance I haven't opened yet. Some reviews...

    I have been trying to nail down exactly what the difference is between a Balkan blend and an English blend. I know balkans are mostly dark virginias+latakia+orientals; at least I think. Tell me what you know

    So I picked up a tin of McClelland's Syrian Super Balkan tonight to try out something new. I wasn't exactly a real big fan of it after a bowl. So if anybody'd be up for a trade for anything other than an aromatic, maybe a Va/Per, a tin one bowl light of Syrian Super Balkan is yours. Zack
