I think I just went a whole week just smoking 50/50 newminster 400 flakes rubbed out and Mcc turkish ribbon, its hitting the spot for me I guess, would normally have more rotation going on. Thinking back, the only exception bowl this week was one from my scrap jar because I knew it would have some latakia in it and I felt the urge.
