The Balkan stuff is usually what I smoke in my pipe. I purchased a meerschaum just so I could have aromatics in it, and I leave the Balkan in my best.
That is very interesting, it may in fact be too strong for me to handle, but my method of smoking Desi and Tangiers even is based off what you have let us know abotu your smoking style.
. I find it much easier to enjoy stronger blends when not inhaling like an American with a bowl of SB (which I so often am).
