Gawith Hoggarth Balkan Mixture Loose Pipe tobacco 25g
Akin to Balkan Sobranie which has been discontinued.
One of the most popular Balkan blends produced in the UK. Comprised of a mixture of flue and sun cured Virginias with a generous helping of Cypriot Latakia. Unlike most other Balkan blends, this is made with only the single Oriental, Latakia, and makes no use of other Oriental or Turkish tobaccos. The blend still has the spicy taste thanks to the dark air cured Indian tobacco.
From the pouch this beautiful looking ribbon mixture, has a deep and smoky aroma. The ribbon cuts makes for easy packing and lighting. Of course it’s the smoking is where it matters and this blend doesn’t disappoint. The blend is very smooth and packed full of spicy, leathery, smoky and slightly salty flavours. Smokes cool thanks to the Dark Virginias and Latakia, and remains smooth even if smoked too hard.
