I'm just finishing up a tin of Odyssey, and I'm looking for opinions about what Balkan/Oriental-forward blend should follow it.
Every now and then I pull tins from the cellar and move them to a "next-to-be-smoked" stockpile. Here's what's currently in that pile that would fit the Balkan/Oriental-forward category:
McClelland's Bombay Court (1999)
Dunhill's The Aperitif (Murray's era)
Robert McConnell's Oriental (2007)
McClelland's Grand Orientals: Yenidje Highlander (2012)
And 2012 tins of C&D's Star of the East, Star of the East Flake, and London Squire.
The only one of the above that I've already tried is the Yenidje Highlander, which I think is one of the best Balkans currently in production. All of the others would be new to me though.
I'm inclined to open the Bombay Court, just because it's got the most age on it. (At least, as far as I know. The Dunhill might be older.) It's also the only blend on this list represented by a single tin. (That is, when it's gone, I have no more aging in the cellar.) But I'd love to hear others' opinions.
