This tobacco is certainly top shelf. The pouch aroma is full and luxurious. I know there are differing opinions as to what constitutes Balkan vs. English, but I would call this a Balkan since to my taste, the richness of Orientals predominate. Even so, the cool, fullness of Latakia is certainly there. This blend manages to keep both flavors in balance and maintains is rich, full, and complex flavor from the first light down to the bottom of the bowl. Although I smoke a lot of different blends, Top Dog is always one I can count on. I usually like to smoke this type of blend in a wide bowl such as a pot or cherrywood (shaped) pipe, but even in smaller bowls such as a bulldog, this blend does well.
