Just wondering if these are from the same maker. The label art work is similar design and the label Balkan suggests they may be the same. If so, I wonder at the huge price difference, the Sasieni being quite economical and the Sobranie being quite expensive and unavailable. My impression is that the Sobranie is the same tobacco that was popular in the past, and is either very scarce or very popular as it's always out of stock. I have never tried this tobacco or it's past version. My understanding is that the Sasieni is blended in the Balkan style, but is not a recreation of any particular blend from the past. I am smoking a bowl of Sasieni right now, and it's very pleasant, mild, seems like a good value at $7 a tin. Do these two come from the same place?
