HU Tobacco Balkan Passion

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“. The result is a dry, smoky blend with a good measure of fine Oriental layers from Turkey and Greece. 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.

The Balkans, an area which was not spoiled in recent history, offers beautiful landscapes, rich cultures and a long tradition in the cultivation of tobacco. The famous Orient Djebel tobaccos come from the Balkan countries and is traditionally mixed in conjunction with Latakia, as well as the "Balkan Passion". The result is a rather bitter smoky blend with a neat addition best Orient layers of Turkey and Greece. Besides giving cyprischer Latakia, süßwürziger Virginia and a hint Louisiana Perique the "Balkan Passion" its distinctive character ... ... Strong, smoky and tart.
