I noticed this old favorite of mine from years past on the shelf again at the smoke shop where I get most of my rolling tobacco, read the existing reviews on here and decided to try some. When Commonwealth Brands took it over, they definitely changed the formula for sure. This is quite different from what I remember smoking say seven or eight years ago in the same tin. It's still good though I think, and it was actually the least expensive Tax Class J product on the smoke shop's shelf. One thing that I noticed immediately after opening the tin was the aroma of African grown flue cured tobacco. I can't really describe it, it's just something you know when you smell/smoke it. Very distinct. The description on the little red canister was pretty vague but I have my own impression of the blend now that I've rolled and smoked several cigarettes with it. I'd say it's a blend of good quality Turkish leaf and Virginias of the previously mentioned geographical origins. In that sense it is very much authentically European. Tobacco manufacturers from there use African Brightleaf extensively because it is produced very inexpensively and is more physically nearby than Virginias from growing regions in North or South America. I do miss the original blend that was done by Stokkebye but this is still a good RYO in my opinion.

tastes good, very naturally sweet and virginia- ey, rather pricey but worth it if youre dead set on rolling and you take a look at some of the other options; the only downside i can think of is theyre a little weak, even for a naturally unprocessed ryo, and the excess of virginias will eventually give you some pretty awful throat irritation and tongue bite if you smoke it long enough

I've smoked Bali Red for many many years. Its been hard to find for the last couple months but I could always find at least one shop with. Now its back, but it is totally different, borderline unsmokable. For me and many Bali Shag smokers a lot of the appeal was the taste, no birds-eye stems. the new packaging doesn't say Golden Shag anymore, just handrolling tobacco. It doesn't come with papers anymore, it also says its made in Belgium whereas before it was made in Denmark. So to sum up, don't smoke Belgian Bali Shag, its pure crap. Peter Stokkebye brand is available most places in the states and its the same quality as old Bali Shag
