    so I've taken to blending some of the tobaccos I have laying around that are running lowish
    among these blends that I'm really loving are...
    Equal parts newminster ultimate english, petersons irish oak, and CAO Eileens Dream
    Equal parts EA Carey classic black(the stuff that came in the rather awesome pipe and 1/4lb deal) and newminster english luxus

    anyone else have some strange Aro/english/lat crossover blends?

    It is fun to play around with them mate. Right now, I am smoking Hal o The Wind with a few sprinkles of McBarren's 7 Sear Royal mixed in. Pretty good smoke.

    If at first you don't succeed, have another bowl.

    Knock yourselves out, fellas. I have no desire to try this at all, especially since I don't smoke aros.

    I don't smoke a lot of aromatics because I can't seem to get through a bowl without it getting goopy, steamy, hot and nasty tasting. I do, however, enjoy adding about 1/4 of a bowl of an aromatic to a nice Virginia. Never thought to try to add an aromatic to a mixture containing latakia, but I may just try it now.

    I've been adding leftovers to a jar for about a year. There has to be at least 20 different components at this point. I mean there is everything from 1792 to Gentleman Caller in there. Although the predominate parts are Latakia blends the concoctionhas a slight aro cast to it. In fact, I finally smoked some tonight and it was pretty good.
    I call it Toaster Leavin's as a homage to Al Bundy. I doubt there will be a final product as I intend to continue to add whatever dust is left in tins that I finish. Sure is interesting to build a Frankenblend though.

    Blowin' smoke since 1970.

    I have tried a few crossovers, like Esoterica's Pembroke, and I have mixed some VBC with Lagonda. Honestly, I like layering aros and Englishes, which I think is like getting the best of both worlds. Often too, I have mixed 1Q or Darkstar with different Vapers, and found it to be a good combo, as I have come to discover I don't care for most Vaper blends.

    I layered 1-Q and CAO Cherry Bomb and it's just like chocolate cake!

    I haven't tried either of those yet Baron... the 1-Q because they were out when I went on my last TAD binge. and the CAO because I'm honestly afraid of anything cherry...just about everything I've found Cherry is kinda a cough syrup Artificial Cherry flavor that I don't like...I keep hearing about the 1Q so it's definately made it's way to my list of tobaccos I must try in order to speak coherently about smoking a pipe on PM forums

    You may not like Cherry Bomb. It's like getting punched in the face by the Kool-Aid man, but it's my favorite of all the cherry blends I've tried.

    I'll have to pick a tin up and try it I suppose, "try it twice once to see if you like it and again to be sure" on the upswing I know this place I can go to look for a trade
