    I get a kick out of some of the tobacco blends named in various posts here on the forum. If you had the opportunity to name three blends, what names would you give them?

    I'll start.

    All of them aromatics, of course—except for the last one which would be my match for Black Frigate.

    My first home blend is named “Tredegar Iron Works.”

    Origin of my blend’s name

    I’m descended from Confederate Veterans.

I mean, the pirates are really rapey.” - Rick & Morty

    Here's a few more!

    Vegan Honeymoon. That sweaty, personal aroma with hints of asparagus and brown rice.

    Old Hardware Store. Pestacides, paint and bone meal with undertones of fertilizer and weeping dynamite.

    I somehow missed that thread the first time around...many good ones in it, but those two are hilarious.

    I can't help but think that there's just got to be some product out there these days called Vegan Honeymoon.

    I'm surprised trouttimes didn't beat me to this but....I'd love to see a blend named "Dry Fly Delight" for all us flyfishers.

    Running out of names like Cosmic Twist, Cosmic Flake, Cosmic Ribbon, I decided to start using vintage sci fi names for my own homegrown blends, so now I have...
    Forbidden Planet, Plan 9, and John Carter Hall.

    But, I also rename bulk blends in my cellar, that only I know what they really are, such as...
    5100 is Tits Up, Curly Cut Deluxe is You Won't Believe its not Strang, and LBT is Escudo-like.

    Well, except people don't browse through my house looking for things to buy, ha ha. And, I do one better than B&M's, I actually grow the stuff.

    The renamed blends are merely for my own amusement. No one ever sees those jars but me.
