We are all unique individuals with different tastes.  What are the tobaccos you like that may be generally unpopular or considered by others as weird or taste weird or strange to you but you can't resist smoking them.

Two tobaccos come to mind for me:
1. Escoterica Tilbury: smells weird, tastes weird when you light it up (kind of like a tainted bale of hay) but grows on you as you smoke it to the bottom of the bowl.
2. Cornell and Diehl Habana Daydream:  a cigar blend that would make a billy goat puke but there is just something about it... 5)

Two Friends Valle Crusis. The description-

A blend of fine stoved Virginia and oriental tobaccos, rich Cyprian Latakia, black toasted Cavendish and just a pinch of Perique. The mixture is finished with a delicate top note of ginger, perfectly complimenting the complex flavors and wonderful aroma of the natural tobaccos. A subtle sweetness and gentle spice is present from first light to last puff, and a clean, dry ash demonstrates the tobacco's purity.


It's an interesting blend. The Lat is used very sparingly, and while you can get a whiff of it in the pouch aroma it doesn't translate much to the flavor. And the ginger gives it a unique "twang".

Took a few bowls for me to decide if I liked it, but I like it just fine now.


Cheers,

RR

SP is the only source I'm aware of, and yes they have it in 2 oz tins last I checked. I was sure I wouldn't like it before trying it (got some in a trade), but it really grew on me after a few bowls.


Cheers,

Yup, and the aromatic guys would say "latakia blends".  lol!

But seriously, it is about a weird blend you like.

Dunhill Royal Yacht.  All the internet talk of "Royal Yuk" is lost on me.
I'm almost ashamed at the number of tins I have squirreled away.

Whatever the blend, if it's a commercial blend it sells enough to keep it going, so lots of people would agree with your liking it.

As a US smoker, though, my preference for mixtures like Grasmere, St Bruno, and Maltan, rarely or never easily available in the US, would at least be seen as off-beat here, but pretty common in the UK or Ireland
