    What are some of your favorite "all day smokes"?

    You know, the ones you thoroughly enjoy the flavor of but that you can load an oversize bowl full of and not be reeling from the Vitamin N kick at the end? The pipe equivalent to a session beer.

    Suggestions?

    I would have to go with Lane Ltd. 1Q.
    It is good, mild, and has a room note that is both familiar and enjoyed by all.
    Nic kick is mild and is a blend that you can smoke all day long.
    One further point in its favor... It is very affordable.
    I try to keep a pound on hand at all times.

    A few of my fav all day smokes.

    Shorcut To Mushrooms This is a smooth, creamy, earthy smoke. Reminisent of a dark room temp beer. No bite.

    Mac Baren's Virginia #1. This is naturally sweet, not complicated, nice grassy/hay undertone. Sweeter then any aromatic I've had yet. Really enjoyable, no bite.

    McClelland 5100 Red Cake. This is another Virginia blend. Not as Sweet but very nice. This has more of a tobacco flavor than Virginia #1. You can see how many members on here love this stuff in this thread.

    @Lawrence: Just ordered 4oz of 1Q a few days ago. I read your ravings on it long enough, I had to give it a shot

    @Spartan: Did the No 1 not bite at all for you? Just the burly?

    No, my name is spelled 'Luxury Yacht' but it's actually pronounced 'Throatwobbler Mangrove'.

    It's the craziest thing Kam, the two tins you sent me have more bite than a pitbull lol And the Virginia #1 has ZERO bite.

    I was in shock. It's pretty amazing.

    Weird. I'm smoking the vanilla creme flake right now. Almost all the way through the tin now and no bite. I guess it's just some of their blends.

    I'd say just about all of the 7 Seas blends from Mac Baren could be all day smokes, as well as their Vanilla Cream.

    Welcome to the forum, audiophile.

    When I want an aromatic, 1Q is for me.

    If I'm in the mood for some latakia, any one of the Seattle Pipe Club blends is good.
    Of these, Seattle Evening is probably the mildest.

    If I smoked all day, those would be my choices. Choosing can be hard though, because I usually only smoke once a day.

    If you really want a good Straight Virginia try:
    Rattray's Hal O' the Wynd
    It does have touch of Perique and maybe something else just to control the flavor.
    But, you'll never know they were there.
    Nothing short of "OMG this great!"

    Another that has a Nic Kick that can give you a real case of the Spins... If you aren't careful.
    And tastes absolutely wonderful...

    If I was going to choose an all day smoke it would most probably be SG FVF or St James Flake.Evening times it would be Squadron Leader or Balkan Flage,both SG.

    Middleton's Apple or Royal Comfort, 1Q, PS Optimum, or Half&Half ...right now I'm spending a lot of time with Lane's Smokers Pride Black Cavendish mixed equally with Half&Half. This has been an awesome smoke! The H&H ups the Nic and adds sweetness to the very mild vanilla and subtle nutty flavor of the SPBC. Plus the price is right! I plan on cellaring a bunch of this.

    I do tend to change my "all day smoke" fairly regularly. In this current cold weather, I am really enjoying Robert Lewis - Wingfield Mixture. It has a really full and interesting flavour without being too strong. One of the few blends I can smoke with my first cup of tea of the day.

    @portascat - I have 1Q and BCA. Got the BCA to try. Just finished a bowl of it and again found it a bit tart or harsh. So appreciate the idea of blending it with 1Q. What ratio do you like?

    All things I undertake must contain integrity, compassion, elegance and grace.

    Eric, glad to see that the Brians' Blend has made it into your regular. This has been a daily smoker for me for quite some time and I never tire of it. I go through pounds of it.

    I realize this is an old thread, but I wanted to second portascat's recommendation: a blend of 1Q and BCA. I tried this recently and enjoyed it. Yet (being the burley lover that I am), I wanted a bit more burley flavor. I had about 3 oz. of PS Cube Cut lying around; I was no longer smoking it due to the bite it gives me (when smoked alone). In to the mixing bowl it went!

    So I have a good, basic everyday blend on hand when I want to lay off the more expensive stuff: equal parts 1Q, BCA, and PS CC (well, maybe a little more CC). Good stuff, and thanks to portascat for the idea.

    A time is coming when men will go mad, and when they see someone who is not mad, they will attack him, saying, "You are mad; you are not like us."

    I did try the 1Q/BCA mix and it was rather good.

    1Q is definitely a smoke anywhere any time all day long blend.

    Molto Dolce mixed with CH. But I'm still experimenting and Lane 1Q will probably be the next.

    For English blends it would have to be FMOTT, followed by Boswell Countryside. As for aros, my first choice is a blend from my local B&M called C. C. Cavendish. After that it would be Lane's 1Q followed by a blend of my own making which I call The Black Prince. It's a 50/50 mix of Prince Albert and Smoker's Pride Black Cavendish, although I'm sure that Lane BCA would work fine too.

    Yea, Lane's 1Q or CH. Can smoke them all day. I do, however, start my day with a bowl of EMP.
    I do, as I imagine others too, get days when I just don't feel like either of them, on those days I can smoke C&D's Sam's Blend all day.

    I don't buy any tobacco unless I would smoke it all day. I don't cellar, so that would be pointless for me. I might keep 2 or 3 pounds for my personal smoke, and smoke about a pound a month.
