Hello,

I'm looking for a Navy or Navy "style" blend. I am hunting for one with a note pronounced Molasses and rum note, but not so much as it reaches aro territory.

What are your favorites? Which ones might fit that profile?

I'm considering Speakeasy, Windjammer and SG Navy Flake, but am open to any input.

Thanks and pipe on!

My current batch of Newminster 400 Superior Navy Flake has a sweet smoky caramel flavor ... previous batches tasted exactly like a cup of tea with honey and lemon ... (???). Sutliffe 507-C is a the tobacco I get in lieu of Capstan Blue but it is less tea and citrus and more sweet french bread flavor (its cheaper too).
Haven't noticed any rum flavor. You might try tobaccoreviews.com and search for rum flavored and see what pops up on the list for comparison. Lane makes some bulk blends that might fulfill that taste preference.

+ More for Salty Dogs. If your description is what you want its right on. Its also absolutely incredible to take a thin slice or two, rub out and put with your favorite vaper. It might be a little too desert like straight... YMMV
