PostSubject: Blending Recipes?   Thu Mar 17, 2011 10:50 pm

Hello,
I'm new to Brothers of Briar and this is my first post. I am wondering if anyone ever experiments with tobacco blending? If so, does anyone have a good recipe? I tend to purchase tins or bulk mixtures, but I'm wondering if others ever blend their own. Just curious.
Thanks,
Milan

I like to mix up an English every now and then - A base of McClelland 5100 Red Cake or Old Gowrie, a healthy portion of Latakia (all varieties experimented with), a touch of perique (also like to experiment with varieties here) - sometimes with turkish and orientals, sometimes without

Lately I have been tossing in some Dark Birdseye from G&H - really beefs up an english

There is a good thread on this topic over on the Tobacco area: http://www.brothersofbriar.com/t11668-a-dedicated-thread-for-blending

Thanks Natch. I knew someone could tell me where to look. I also liked ganddalfpc's post. I appreciate both responses.

PostSubject: Simple but good!   Wed Mar 23, 2011 10:00 pm

Not to bump an old thread, but saw a post on TobaccoReviews.com a while back about mixing Lane's BCA & 1-Q.

It's a simple 50/50 mix - so I threw some together, stored it in a mason jar, and let it sit for about a month.
All I can say is 'Wow'. For such a simple blend of bulks, it's quite enjoyable.
I'm sure other equivalents would work as well, but this stuff I already had on hand.

Great Vanilla flavor - with hints from each of the bulks showing up, and a GREAT room note.

From now on, i'll keep this in my regular rotation. Now if I could just come up with a name for it...

I've never smoked Lane tobaccos. I felt that smack on the back of my head. I'm going to go for it if you say so. Seems to be the agreed upon magic mix. 1:1 Correct? Thanks for the suggestion.

If you like a semi-mild aromatic with a great room note, then Yes - go for it...
I've never tried altering the ratio, but i'm in the process of trying some experimenting with this. But yes, that is the preferred ratio (and the ratio I use).

I hear Lane 1Q is real close to Butternut Burley and the BCA livens it up. I'm going to try that one, for sure.

I tried the BCAQ mix today and really enjoyed it. Thanks for the recommendation. I didn't realize that I had been smoking the 1-Q on and off for some time now because my local tobacconist gave it a nickname. I thought it was a shop blend. The BCA really did elevate the 1-Q and the aroma is nice. I may add a couple pinches of Latakia and a smidge of Perique just to see where it takes the mixture? Thanks again.
Milan Very Happy

Has anyone tried a 1:1 mix of Carter Hall and Captain Black White? To me it tastes like a sweet black walnut. I seldom smoke an aro but this is one of three that I do smoke.
