PostSubject: Top 5 tobaccos   Thu Oct 28, 2010 3:58 pm

I've tried searching this without success. I can't believe I couldn't find a post like this. This was always huge on the cigar boards.

So what are your current top 5 tobaccos?

So far for me in no special order and considering many of my old ones are no longer available:

McClelland Old Dog
Butera Pelican
4 Noggins Bald Headed Teacher
GL Pease Chelsea Morning
Dunhill MM 965

No fair any of you guys that have huge cellars full of discontinued stuff like MM965 tongue

Edited to update my picks - 12-07-10

Piet's out this evening, so let me step in.

FVF - Sam Gawith Full Virginia Flake
OGS - Orlik Golden Sliced

Both great Va's, but FVF, being the best tobacco in the world, is of course better.

Bru, you might try rubbing it out and then letting it set for a half hour first. (Do you know how many times I had to rewrite this sentence before I could post it?) lol!

Also I've only smoked this in my well seasoned 30 year old pipes so I don't know how it would do in a new one.
I haven't noticed any harshness but it could be the nicotine, it is straight virginias.

I wouldn't give up on just yet. Wink

No fair to you guys that still have stock of stuff that is no longer available tongue

Dover, I'm staying away from you before you get me into trouble. Laughing
