As with food, variety is a central point, so smoking only one blend means I'd be stuck with only one. I might make do with something like 965 or its match, or Granger, or C&D Stratfordshire, but I wouldn't be happy about it. My dad was a fifty-year Granger only guy, and he was content. With one blend, I'd smoke only occasionally.

Even though I have 3 blends I love equally, and ever smoke, I'd choose Carter Hall.

Why?

I like the taste. It burns easily, without much effort at all. And I can usually get the local gas stations to order it and keep it in stock for me.

That last part was a little secret of mine. Something I've been doing for years. Shhhh

A single blend for anytime, all around easy smoking would be Stokkebye LNF. It is not my favorite blend, but it is easy smoking, hassle free, good any time on any day.

The alternative would be to pick a single blend to smoke occasionally. One that stands on top of the heap in the #1 spot as a favorite. A blend good enough to treat as a treat. One to be savored occasionally. One that you don't want to become a pedestrian, mindless, all day smoke. In this case I'd select SG BBF, no contest.
