    Any other Balkan, just doused with vanilla extract?

    I should probably also add that I like Squadron Leader and Old Dublin, too.

    Is it the vanilla kicker that made you mention Britt's before the others? Or is it the similarities between the three overall you're looking to rediscover in other blends?

    Well, yes, and yes.

    Honestly, I forgot about the vanilla until you mentioned it as I haven't had it in quite a while. And, my current explorations are leading me to conclude that what I am looking for is more along the lines of a Balkan either with or without vanilla. But I don't want something really heave. E.g. My Mixture 965 is just too much for me.

    I'm not sure precisely what you mean by heavy...mouth feel? Nicotine? But maybe check out Peter Stokkebye's Balkan Supreme. Well liked and well priced.

    +1. I sampled it once, and it's very good. I just like Squadron Leader more, so I haven't bought any.

    I have bought Stokkebye's English Oriental Supreme. It's another good one to try.

    Yes, I don't want/like a lot of nicotine and, also, I don't like that heavy taste or mouth feel that doesn't ever seem to subside. PS definitely needs to go on my list. Thanks!

    Thanks for the tip!

    Obviously I would love to get some SL, but, yeah, you know how that goes...

    Been a while, but Balkan Supreme isn't heavy. I also remember a butter toffee hint when snorking it...prolly a subjective thing, but pleasant, whatever name you give it! :)
