This puppy was born in time to celebrate Jack's 13th Anniversary, earning the name, Lucky Dog. It may be described as a Balkan/English by some, or an English/Balkan by others with the pungency of the Turkish base and the richness of a good measure of Cyprian Latakia. It is rounded out with matured red Virginia and perique for smoothness and depth, and is sure to please the discriminating palate.

I finally pulled out my Lucky Dog from a stash I picked up back in 2006 when Joe Harb (blender) first started putting together his Jack's tobacco blends. Lucky Dog is a fine Balkan style blend with loads of flavor. The Latakia and Perique shine in this one and the Virginia is a strong background player. I think this one compares very favorably (and even better due to the aging), than most of the current blending attempts at recreating classic Balkan style blends. Very heady, creamy, smoky and flavorful!

In my opinion this is a great Balkan/English. It lights well, stays lit, and burns cool and dry. What more could you ask? Excellent flavor? Yes, this blend has that too. Jack's Tobacco donated a number of samples of this blend at the 2006 Chicago Pipe Show, which is how I discovered this blend. Thank you Jack! I have been smoking this blend in a rotation with other Balkan, English and Scottish blends. This is the one I go to when I want big taste. If you are an English tobacco smoker, and you want more taste than you may be getting from your other blends, try this one.
