Thos is probably the finest Balkan blend I have had the pleasure to smoke. I have never been fortunate enough to sample the blend that this seeks to emulate, but if the original was in any way similar, then I mourn its passing.

Tasty throughout, with a sweet smokiness that belies comparisons with most others - Star of the East or McClelland's Wilderness would be the closest. Browns and blacks, and fluffy and not too moist. No relights through the bowl, and little residue. Just a delight from first light to the end.

Long may it reign!

I revisited pipe smoking about a year ago, after an earlier attempt decates ago. Started of (again) with aromatics, but inspired by the numerous review on YouTube, I soon started trying Virginia, Vapors and Burley blends and straight tobacco's, with the Virginia's as my favorite. But I all so smoked occationally some Night Cap and Standard Mixture. Now In recently purchased a tin of MOB BS759, and I'm hooked on it. It is my new favorite!

Pipe Used: All my favorite pipes

Age When Smoked: Couple of months

Purchased From: De oude Leeuw, Rijswijk, Holland

Similar Blends: I highly recommend MOB BS759. It has some smoky sweet gorgonzola-ish taste to it. I recon that it something to do with the Orientals., I hope that a more knowledgable pipe smoker Will try this blend, and van give some reflections. I like to know how it compares to the real BS Mixture..
