    I threw together some tobaccos last weekend that turned out pretty good. It was after I read the description of Russ's Porch Swing. It was McC Townsman Rum-3 parts
    Blending Latakia-2 parts
    Blending Perique-1 part

    It does sound good. Kind of like one of the C&D blends that combines the navy cav with Latakia.

    One of the luxuries of pipe smoking is that you can mix a new blend any time. I never pretend the knowhow of professional blenders who spend months and years making and modifying a blend to get it to perfection, but I am surprised at how good many of my "notions" really are. This is a good recipe, starting with a fine McC's standard and adding the usual suspects in healthy portions. A classic recipe is any predominantly Virginia blend or Va. single leaf, with condiment portions of good burley and unflavored black Cavendish. The pros use pressure and heat, but I just mix the portions and pack the pipe. I'm favorably surprised much more often than disappointed.
