(This is against the background of 50gr of anything decent costing at least $125 in Australia). I have acquired a stash from @sunriseboy which should last me a couple of years. Most of it is good stuff - I'll post separately about that - but it includes 100gr PA, 100gr Amsterdamer Fijne Snede & 65gr Mac Baren VA#1. So I invested the said $125 in 50gr of Samuel Gawith Latakia Blending Tobacco, and have blended them all. That's a tad over 15% Latakia which ought to smoke like a mild to moderate English. Haven't tried it yet.
