    English / Latakia C&D Blends

    Stratfordshire and Cordial are excellent. Star of the East Gold is more oriental forward with the lat more in the background. Red Odessa is also very good. Some that I haven't tried are Mountain Camp and Bayou Night, the contain perique and may meet your strength requirements.

    Revisiting An Old Favorite

    I had a similar experience, but with a blend that never really wowed me. Last week I had a bowl of Balkan Sasieni. Balkans are my mainstay of what I smoke. the BS was purchased in Jan. 2013, and I have sampled over the years and it never really did anything for me. Until last week. The Lat had...

    My Latest Tobacco Order

    I recently got some of this: Sutliff's 245 ZBC is a blend of Dark-Fired Kentucky tobacco that's been steamed to produce a delightful Cavendish. Topped with flavors of caramel, cream, and vanilla, 245 ZBC is mellow smoke with a delicious aroma. I was intrigued by the fact that it's made with...

    1-M Vanilla by Sutliff

    I can't drink Miller Highlife anymore, too many skunk beers from the clear glass bottles. Skunk beer is made when light hits hops molecules, creating mercaptan(sp ?) which is what Skunks spray.

    Guilty pleasure or found my blend?

    Try Sutliff's match. It's called Match Late Evening. I haven't tried it but I have several other match blends that are very good to excellent. It's sold in bulk so you can throw in an ounce or two with your next order. You might want to try match Balkan Sobranie 759, the dark fired Kentucky adds...

    What would be your 2022 Holiday Blend?

    Sutliff RC-272, a smorgasbord of leaf: burley, Virginia, flue cured, Smyrna, and Latakia. Three flavors: vanilla, rum, and cinnamon further enhance this rather remarkable English style blend.

    Sunset Harbor Flake

    I'm cheap and I don't have a lot of money for tobacco, that's why I buy bulk. C&D John Marr, for example, 1lb bulk is $39.39. Two 8 oz cans @ $34 each = $64. That's a savings of $24.61, which is almost enough for a lb of some Sutliff or Peter Stokkebye blend. My palette isn't refined enough to...

    Sunset Harbor Flake

    I forgot to mention C&D Super Balkan. I've smoked it and enjoyed it! The blends you mentioned that I didn't hit on, it's because I'm too cheap to buy tins ! LOL! The SOTE Gold has had the latakia and the orientals reversed. Red Odessa will be my next purchase.

From Sutliff the matches for BSOSM, Sobranie 759, Dunhill 965. Also from Sutliff TS-24. I have smoked all of these blends and they are all great (4...

    Cigar Leaf: Does it belong in Pipe Tobacco?

    Is cigar tobacco processed differently when it's going to be used in a pipe tobacco blend? I roll my own cigars and have some scraps and trimmings that I could use.
