A traditional Balkan mixture composed of rich Latakia, exotic Oriental and Turkish leaves, and bright Virginias. Smokey wood, subtle floral notes, undertones of tanginess layered with hints of subdued natural sweetness, and a buttery finish await you in each bowl of this sophisticated, medium-body blend.

A fine blend by Mr. Portelli. The Latakia does not drown out the Orientals instead he has succeeded in proportioning the different elements into a harmonious experience. Knights of Malta has a cool burn and the bowl finishes pleasantly. Bravo sir!

I really enjoy this blend; in fact, I created it! This is a traditional Balkan mixture with a noticeable Oriental and Turkish character that plays well with the supporting Virginias and Latakia. It burns well and tastes great!

Vary consistant smoke smooth and a hint of tartness reminds me of a mild english blend. Stays lit, with no bit and a small aromatic finish to the smoke. Great smoke Dave you should be proud of your blend

My brother, Dave has created several outstanding blends for me in the past. Even though I typically smoke aromatics, I really enjoyed this non-aro blend. The combination of the oriental and turkish leaves along with the natural subtle sweetness of the virginias and just the right amount of Latakia, has earned a well-deserved place in my rotation.
