Update
Due to some resent finds.
It would have to be one of these three:

  1. Gawith and Hoggarth Kendal Sliced brown Twist Aromatic
  2. Gawith and Hoggarth Kendal Sliced Black Twist Aromatic
  3. Gawith and Hoggarth’s American Caribbean Coconut
As this is a desert island it should be 3.
Probably!

I'm way too new in my journey to contribute. So far, the only blend I've truly loved was FMC. Regardless, what fascinates me is, save the drugstore brands, so few blends have been mentioned twice.

I would have trouble narrowing it down between about 5 tobaccos.

Watch City’s Persian Slipper
Watch City’s Rhythm and Blues
John Cotton’s Numbers 1 and 2
C&D Star of the East
SPC Plum Pudding

There are so many variables... is it a tropical island? Are there other people there? what about animals? Do I have access to water? coffee? Do I have to sleep on the beach? Can I have a lifetime supply of cigars instead?

Okay I'll play. I would choose Directors Cut from HU. It contains curly cut coins, ribbon cut, and broken flake. This would allow me to pack bowls a bunch of different ways (for example just coins, or coins then ribbon then flake, and so on). It also contains Burley, Kentucky, Perique, and Virginia so I could try to seperate those out and smoke them individually and in different combinations. Out of this one blend I could expect a bunch of different smoking experiences. It may be my favorite blend anyway. Hmmm. An island all by myself with an unlimited amount of Directors Cut. That sounds nice. I'd smoke my pipe, do natural history explorations, and let the days pass.

Wow. This is an amazing strategy!
