    I see everything under the sun but I don't see anything with hints of orange, orange peel, etc. I do see some described as "citrusy." Anyone know of a blend with a decided orange sort of taste?

    Orange Pekoe? Try some Orlik Golden Sliced in a container with an orange suspended above it, puncture the skin with cloves and leave it sit?

    Planta and Holger Danske has one, the tin smell is orangey, but I barely get a hint of orange from the smoke... and that would be just upon the initial lighting. Then it just turns into a regular aromatic that has no taste or smell to the smoker. And, bystanders tell me that they don't get any orange aromas from the smoke of those. YMMV.

    Actually the Sherlock Holmes was a little tangy as I remember. Might need to pick some up again, it was nice.

    Briarworks Bacon Old Fashioned. I wouldn't say it's dedicated, but the orange bitters definitely packs an orange-y punch.

    I enjoy Peter Heinrich's Reserve Crue #2, it has some orange flavor to it, see description and link below.

    Reserve Crue No. 2 is a pressed, long-cut flake of pure Virginia composition, flavored with hints of vanilla, honey, and orange.

    Peter Heinrich's Reserve Crue 2.

    I think one of the Stokkebye Generation blends has an orange taste to it, though I don't remember which.

    HU Bahi Orange is another. The Rattray's and the Heinrich's are very rich with a deep orange flavor.

    Orlik Racing Green has a subtle greatfruit flavor. I enjoy it.

    I grew up with orange trees. Had to pick greatfruits every morning for breakfast, while they were in season.

    Holger Danske does Vanilla & Orange and I thought I saw a couple Ashton blends labelled as either citrus or lemon flavoured.

    On another note I came across a miniature oak barrel for tobacco/cigars made in the style of an old whiskey barrel for aging spirits. The idea was that you could rub alcohol or an essence that the company sells to rub into the oak which would then in theory infuse your smoke while it sits. Interested to see if they do a decent job, could use it to make a blend you dislike more interesting.

    Thanks guys, I will check those out. I was looking for something to mix with something like maybe Bob's Chocolate Flake. That HU Bahi Orange might just have beaten me to the punchline in the total package. Great recommendations!

    You don't need to invest in an Oak barrel to season tobacco. Find a store that sells brewing gear or check the internet for some Oak infusion spirals. Soak in whatever you want and put them in with the tobacco.

    D&R Blenders Bench Bulgarian Oriental. A bowl of that will turn your head into a kumquat, or you can just add it to other tobaccos.

    I have three different types of orange oil, used for making soap (one if my many other hobbies). All are food grade.
    Time to play?
    I could see it workiing well in a number of blends... maybe a light Virginia or a rich burley?

    I detect no orange in Sixpence, thought this Peterson St. Patrick's Day 2016 that I'm smoking is loaded with it.
