First blended in 1996, this is one of the finest medium Balkans we've ever produced. Rich and spicy with top-grade Basma, the finest Latakia and stoved sweet Virginias, it is truly a marvel to smoke. Blending skill and nature combine for a memorable experience.
Notes: Originally introduced in May, 1996 for the Chicagoland Pipe Collectors' Club, is now part of the Club Blends Series.

The tin description nails it. This is a smooth, rich, creamy medium balkan that is well-anchored by its tangy sweet viginias, perfecly complimented by a balanced helping of tasty latakia, and aptly enhanced by flavorful orientals. A relaxing, flavorful and enjoyable smoke. Similar in some ways to Old Dog. Three and a half stars.
