Now that 2014 is over, what was your most smoked brand and blend of the year? Not necessarily your favorite, but the one you smoked the most. I'll start:

Most smoked blend: GLP Triple Play (always have an open tin of Triple Play or Jacknife Plug at hand).

Most smoked brand: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. (went on an exploratory journey of their bulk blends).

I've got about 20 jars sitting here and I grab a pinch of this and a pinch of that so it's hard to tell, but I would guess it's between McCs fragrant matured cake, Escudo, FVF, and Best Brown Flake.

1792 Flake
Dunhill Nightcap
Old Dark Fired
Bracken Flake

The GL Pease's would be right up there, but there are so many great blends that not one got any devoted attention.

Blend: GH Brown Flake Unscented, with Grasmere not too far behind.
Brand (harder to calculate), but at around 27% of the total, it was GH

My most smoked blend would be Wessex Brigade Campaign Dark Flake.
I couldn't begin to guess what my most consumed brand is I have too many open tins on the go.

It was actually an odd year for me - I spent a lot of time trying new blends, experimenting with Burley's, working my may through a wide variety in small volumes (even finished the year and started '15 on a rare aromatic kick), so I probably didn't smoke my "go to" blends/brands as often as I normally would.

Still, for the sake of posterity:

Pipe Brand: McClelland (usually a toss up b/w McC and GLP)
Pipe Blend: McC British Woods
Cigar Brand: Punch
Nasal Snuff: Viking Dark

I've been led to believe that FVF is the best tobacco ever made in the whole, wide world?

It's OK. Tastes like real tobacco and has nicotine, but that's about it for this guy's palate. Maybe aging would help? Dunno. (I don't do the aging thing, except by accident when overstocked on stuff, as the case now seems. As an operating principle, if it's not ready to go when I buy it, to hell with it.)

Richard, I'm with you all the way. I only "stock" about 3 months worth of tobacco, have no cellar.

I've only ordered one tin of FVF to see/taste what all the raving is about. Also ordered one tin of St James flake for the same reason. My go to tobacco is Irish Oak because I can go to my local B&M and buy some when I need it. That's about the only decent tobacco I can buy here. I love and always have 4noggins Prairie Wind and, of course, LBF and LNF.

I keep enough Escudo to last me at least 6 months because when I crave it, I want it. I've run out of stock once and when I tried to order more, it was out of stock at 4noggins from whom I buy all my stuff. And postal services to South Africa is bad and sometimes it takes months for stuff to reach me.

For the rest, I don't worry. I smoke OGS as well but won't die if I don't have some for a while.

I'm a pipesmoker, not a tobacco collector Twisted Evil
