Nice pipe!Unmarried, just freshly blended Black Maria Version 2
3 pts Sutliff Virginia Slices
2 pts Sutliff TS 23 Black Cavendish
1 pt Sutliff Maryland
0.75 pt Sutliff Latakia
0.75 pt Sutliff Perique
0.50 pt Sutliff Turkish
Working on an American/English blend that is both mild and has some body. This might do it. I think it could be improved with a touch of a vanilla note. It's there in the black cavendish. The Virginia Slices are an interesting way to introduce Virginia.

I'm in the neighborhood. I know the proportions of Latakia and Perique. I know it has Virginia as well as black cavendish. I am finding that the Maryland adds some mild notes and the Turkish... not sure yet. When Dengler finally retires the store once and for all, Larry has started he will share some of the formulas of blends I enjoy. I will say this, the blend I mentioned I whipped up was EXTREMELY GOOD.Nice pipe!
What’s the verdict - have you successfully replicated Black Maria?
