Pretty much sums up what I was gonna say...It's totally subjective of course, but I also can't stand Latakia when it's humid. I think a good VaPer or straight Virginias are at their best when it's warmer, especially red VAs when the humidity is up but it's important to dry it pretty well first.
So maybe I'd recommend something like Rattray's Highland Targe or Red Rapparee.Sorry. I forgot to mention, that I smoke English/Balkan blends exclusively. But I would choose something light. MM965 and Nightcap better stay at home.
So true...After highly spiced Thai food, a stronger blend in the evening might taste good
Accordingly I will recommend something I'd take along to Thailand but based on what you stated about your tobacco preference:it's totally subjective of course
By "light" I understand mellow. So here goes...I smoke English/Balkan blends exclusively. But I would choose something light
Have you ever tried Black Frigate? Not exactly a traditional English blend but the Latakia and Orientals are present. Hard to describe the flavor but I think it's definitely one that would be suited to warm tropical days.Sorry. I forgot to mention, that I smoke English/Balkan blends exclusively. But I would choose something light. MM965 and Nightcap better stay at home.
ODF has more smoky, nutty dark-fired tasting burleys than Golden Extra which is w/o them. Also GE has more virginia sweetness in its flavour profile.Interesting. Is ODF anywhere near Golden blend/Golden extra?
A false dichotomy? I'd be interested in hearing your thoughts on the topic. Shame that I live so far north; it'd be enjoyable to share a bowl and hear your rationale.I do not believe in objective/subjective.
