I know in some ways this is a taboo but at the same time i've read many of you guys and gals doing it.
Mixing your blends.
After over indulging in Black House and Frog Morton's Cellar for the past week i took a couple days to just smoke mostly Trout Stream in a cob. I gotta say going back to something light and sweet was really relaxing and quite a nice experience. so nice that i haven't wanted anything else for the past two days. But this evening i decided i needed a little bit of spice. So i added one pinch of Larry's Blend into two pinches of Trout Stream.
HOLY LORD it was a treat. The latakia from Larry's Blend was immediately present but very very smooth. The sweet creaminess that came through with the Trout Stream was unbelievable! The whole bowl smoked perfectly down to a fine white dottle. i will definitely do this again.
Do you have any guilty pleasures?
also i wonder if there is a blend that already achieves this that i could try.
discuss and be merry!
