This morning I watched The Lord of the Rings while smoking my pipe, and it got me thinking. What pipe tobacco blend out there could you see yourself smoking while sitting at the Green Dragon drinking a pint?
I think I remember reading somewhere on this forum that the actors on set, when presented with choices of tobacco to smoke on camera, overwhelmingly chose Stokkebye's Nougat.
Myself, I think if I were at the Green Dragon having a pint I'd have to have a bowl full of JackKnife Plug.
That's an interesting question, as I don't recall Tolkien ever describing the tobacco flavors themselves. I have smoked an "Old Toby" from a couple of different blenders, and never the same thing twice. I would bet that Gimli would be smoking a meaty Latakia, the Hobbits puffing on infused tobaccos with maple or honey flavors, and Aragorn smoking something fermented like
Perique. Myself, I think Frog Morton on the Bayou in an old Clay Churchwarden would be keeping in the spirit of things.
