A rich American style Balkan consisting of burley, Virginia, Turkish, black cavendish, and Cyprian Latakia. This blend is Latakia heavy, and contains a generous dose of burley, punctuated by Orientals, Virginia, and perique. The constituent parts all play in harmony like a concerto.

Smoking a bowl of this in my MM Mark Twain cob. I jarred this tin 6 months ago, after getting into it when it first arrived.

I'll never be a supertaster like JimInks, but this blend is quite smooth and I really like it. It has just enough Latakia to excite me, and I don't find it to be a Latakia bomb. I may be the exception to the rule though, because I've smoked straight Latakia and loved it.

I'd say this one is similar to Bengal Slices in flavor. The Russ Ouellette blends don't disappoint, and Concerto definitely plays music on my palate.

Give it a shot if you get the chance.
