Not necessarily. I have been able to find a few for (relatively) reasonable prices on occasion. I am aware of Dark Star and Blackwoods. Are there other good ones they made?McClelland produced many blends with black stoved Va., but listing them is useless.
It depends on what type of blends you prefer. I have pounds of the Simply Red (Straight Red Va) and Rhythm & Blues. Watch City Slices are considered by many the best straight Burley blend. I like the Slices but prefer Deluxe Curly Cut, really good. Persian Slipper is a mild to medium Oriental with fabulous flavors. Quint's Own is a milder English Blend that is very nice. Old Dominion is a top notch VaPer. Northeaster is really good, I believe he calls it an American blend. Got some Fat Bastard on order, a Scottish blend. I think Watch City and Peretti's are the two best B&M blenders in the US.I have yet to order anything from Watch City. Are there other blends of theirs you would recommend? If so, what are they called and what are they?
