Howdy folks,

Anyone know of any blends made with Pennsylvania leaf? Lancaster County has a few thousand acres in production, but I think most of it goes to cigarette production and the cultivars planted are at a minimum guided by the needs of these big buyers. PA leaf is also used for cigar wrappers. Cornell & Diehl have a few blends that feature the PA Maduro. I swear I came across a blend a few weeks ago that featured Pennsylvania tobaccos, and I think it also had Maryland too, but I can't remember it. I only ask because I like to sample things from the home state (Boswell pipes, Yuengling beer, etc.). Any suggestions or knowledge would be much appreciated.

PS: Yes I used the search function, yes I used Google, no I don't want information on any other center of production foreign or domestic.

When I hear Pennsylvania leaf, I think of Parodi cigars (also known as Guinea stinkers). Note Bene: I didn't name them that and was taught the name by people of Italian descent.

Bethlehem, Pa.
Indian Summer is the only pipe blend I know of that claims to have Pa Amish tobacco in it. Curiously, I bought my tin in Germany because it seemed strange that it should be there.

Thanks for the responses. The blend I was thinking of was C&D Gray Ghost, which was discontinued back in 2014 I think.
