Exotique Mixture was developed back in the early 1950's by Sobranie Ltd. and the founder of Smokers' Haven Joseph Zieve. Currently blended to the original recipe by J.F. Germain and Sons, this traditional English blend has the characteristics of the ultimate Balkan blend. Rich, flavorful, delicious, tasty, and mellow. This tells the complete story on our Exotique Mixture. Only the finest grade of choice ribbon-cut matured Virginia leaf, the most flavorful of Latakia, the most mellow of Turkish tobaccos carefully blended together to achieve this rich tasting Exotique Mixture. Primarily originated for the ardent pipe smoker who either desires an "extra-rich" mixture for all day smoking pleasure OR for he who wants several bowl fulls in the evening after his delicious evening repast.
