The Balkans, a place which recent history has not been kind to, offers majestic landscapes, rich culture and a long tradition of tobacco growing. The famous Oriental Jebel tobaccos come from the Balkans and are usually blended with latakia, just like “Balkan Passion“.

Latakia from Cyprus, sweet and spicy Virginia, and a fine touch of Louisiana perique further enhance the distinct character of “Balkan Passion“. …strong-flavored, smoky, dry.
