I don't know what's going on with my palate. I cannot stand Virginia as much as I tried. I've grown tired of most Balkan blends. I still enjoy saseini tho. I don't even like Pease Oddysey but everything about key largo ticks the boxes. I can buy a new pipe with no break in and enjoy key largo like it was my favorite pipe. I just fear the day I grow tired of it if it's possible lol.

Virginias are tricky. Many are super subtle until you’re used to the fact that they don’t punch you I the face like a lot of Latakia blends do. A few blends come to mind - some without Latakia but with a super full mouthfeel and plenty of flavor.

I had high hopes for plum pudding. I smoked the first bowl of it 2 years ago in a meerschaum. It was absolutely amazing then reality set in and it became bland lol. Like I said I think it's me.

I have yet to pop my tin of Key Largo, but a blend with cigar leaf that I have enjoyed over repeated orders is C&D Billy Budd, if you like burley and cigar leaf. It's available in bulk too.
Key Largo is quite possible my most bought tobacco. It's really just great. Even when I smoke it several times a day it continues to wow me. Get on it is what I am saying.
