So Condorlover sent me a sample of Balkan Sobranie. He bought the tin in 1985 and it has been gathering dust until recently when he divided it up and sent it out to some folks. I got a sample big enough for about 5 bowls. I saw a tin of this era sell on ebay recently for $460. At the time I thought that price was crazy and still do to some extent. It made me think of big Game tickets like the Super Bowl that sell for thousands of dollars. And the question arises what would you do, go to the game or sell the tickets? I'de probably sell the tickets, but after smoking this vintage Balkan Sobranie, if someone gave me a sealed 30 year old tin, I would crack that baby open and smoke it. It was that good! I savored every single puff.
