A fellow member started a thread on 7 pipes... So I figured I would start one about tobaccos.

Personally, my selection would be one of each tobacco type.
1. Burley
2. Virginia
3. Kentucky
4. English
5. Cavendish
6. Latakia
7. Perique

While I haven’t smoked enough blends yet to list the names of favorites, I encourage you to list what 7 tobaccos you would select.

Good lists! I'll take a different tack and list characteristics that I use to select tobaccos:

1. Blends or single leaf that are consistent in flavor and smoking characteristics
2. Blends that require fewer relights and burn evenly
3. Blends with fewer additives
4. Brands and blends that can respond to demand and are generally not listed as "out of stock"
5.Brands that have wide distribution for the convenience of their customers and are widely available
6.Blends that have irresistible flavor and get smoked up
7. Brands and blends that are good value for the price

If we are limiting it to tobaccos still in production, I would move up C&D Opening Night and Escudo.
