Medium to Strong Mild Very Full Tolerable to Strong

I bought it on Kiev after being pressured by the seller. I finally relented and got it, and I haven't regretted it at all. The question now is where I am going to find it now. Syrian Latakia, Kentucky, Burley and a pinch of Perique (that does not bother me) are its ingredients. It has incredibly sweet taste, smokes smoothly, of course no tongue bite. Its moisture is ideal. As for the room note… …better let it be. I have smoked half the pouch on its own.

As for the other half, I mixed it with Erinmore Balkan Mixture. The results where even better

A relative of mine was on holiday in Prag went to a pipe shop and called me from there. A nice lady from the shop offered me this tobacco on the phone as soon as she understood that I love Latakia blends. I am glad she did. It may not be a very complex tobacco but it smokes nice, burns well and tastes very good. For me it is a nicely done example of a Latakia blend. Can smoke it all my life. But as someone said "where to find it?". Recommended.

Not as good as London Mixture of the same producer.The sweetness of the cavendish overlays tha rest of mixture. Similar to Mac baren HH Vintage Syrian but less good in my opinion.

Bought this from Spain along with London Mixture by Mostex/Stanislaw. This is sold at a very good price, and it delivers a great punch. A great Latakia highly recommended!

I bought it by accident, what a lucky accident. Loved it on the first try, actually one of the best tobaccos I smoked! Bravo Herr Stanislaw!

It is now more than 20 years since I tried the legendary Balkan Sobranie. (For globbetrotting reasons I skipped my pipe smoking all thesse years. A recent come back led me to this interesting substitute. Reminiscences are there. But I feel is still not so close to the classic one, but I am enjoying it. Price / quality ratio is very good. Particularly if compared with most common duty free offerings... I will continue buying it. But is not the only type I will smoke...

Horrible tobacco! There is no connection with Balkan Sobranie. That's a lie and delusion.

Excellent tobacco with a high percentage of Latakia, oriental and Virginia. If you have the opportunity - make sure you buy it! Some even say that it strongly resembles legenedary Balkan Sobranie! And not alone in that opinion!

Stanislaw Balkan Latakia is as if cut with a mix of Dunhill with Latakia, Medium Standard type or 965. In short, this blend is not perfect, I would tell you that Stanislaw Balkan Latakia has an advantage: the price. My personal opinion is that this mixture is excelent to make mixes.
