Full Balkan Reserve

McClelland touts this as one of their most popular Balkans ever and I see why. Not really a traditional Balkan in taste, this has a sweet, smokey flavour with Oriental/ Va. complexities that intensify as the bowl progresses. Cool and clean, never tiring, FBR needs dry/air time to perform at it's best.
This certainly isn't 3 Oaks, but definitely has it's place in my rotation. Highly recommended.
