I’ve always preferred the english mixtures. Nightcap and the other Dunhill brands along with GL Pease Gaslight and Quiet Nights
However, Escudo and Peter Stokkebye Luxury Bullseye Flake are quickly working their way into a daily occurrence here.
Amazingly good tobaccos.

Right on. I followed a similar path. Keep on puffing.
And I will agree with embers. Acadian perique is one of my heaven on Earth blends.

I though the same thing years ago.

I guess that's a road for a lot of us? I abandoned my English completely a few years ago. Thinking about dropping them in the sale threads.

I’m smoking 965 right now. I’ll never abandon the english. I enjoy smoking something different usually every day.
Thanks for the additional tobacco recommendations! I’ll have to give them a try.

I'm more of a Virginia/Burley/Dark Fired guy than an English guy, but I think I went less "whole hog" on English than many here, and that has kept me from losing my taste for them. Latakia is maybe a once weekly thing for me, and that really helps me continue to look forward to it. I also never got into lat-bombs.

Took me about 2 years to abandon English. To abandon Latakia in general actually. The Oriental/Latakia mix just got to be old and too much the same. Never thought I would say it, but I've turned into quite the Virginia smoker - mostly straight VA with rounds of VA seasoned with (perique, dark fired, Per-DFK, or oriental). Of course I have the Burley binges now and again.

Since I'm an occasional smoker, Latakia mixures are here to stay, most or my Winter smokes are with Latakia or Va/Pers.

Escudo has become a staple of mine. I just ordered several more tins of it to have on hand. It has been consistently flavorful and rich. Really love the stuff.
