For me its probably a 3 way tie between C&D Haunted Bookshop, Old Joe Krantz, and Carter Hall. It was an interesting year in terms of pallet for me. I finally decided that I'm never going to find an aromatic or straight virginia that I will like. No offense to the guys that love them, but my taste buds just can't appreciate those sorts of blends. I also finally figured out that my aversion to perique was really an aversion to Va perique. Needless to say, my 2013 list would have looked very different.
Mike.

There are starving kids in India smoking bidis because they have no FVF. Don't waste it by smoking what you don't like. I'm sure tons of people would trade for it.

I'm a FVF fan, although I like BBF a bit better.

Brand is probably MacBaren, since I've been working through their line-up.

Blend is up in the air. It's varied too much as I've done a lot of sampling and gone on kicks of this or that. The genre is definitely VA-KY or straight VA, though. I've gotten a lot more into those blends.

Blend: Toss up between LBF and 5100
Brand: Definitely McClelland. In my opinion, you really can't go wrong with McKetchup!

I am a promiscuous smoker, changing things up all the time but I would have to say Stormfront

I spent 2014 investigating lat blends. I pop a tin and then pretty much smoke the whole thing and I'm
still doing this at present. I still have not tried everything in my stash. So no most smoked for me.

Definitely dunhill 965, love that stuff.

Close second would be Prince Albert. I've been breaking in new pipes a lot this year.

Top brand is dunhill overall. Going to try to branch out some this year though.

Nightcap. Spread my time around quite a bit, but that particular blend saw some particular attention.

Carter Hall. 2015 will be H&H Classic Burley Kake. I had smoked CH exclusively for years, but this fall I was gifted some CBK and have not looked back. I don't experiment and try any other blends. It is how we old codgers started, and it works for me.

2014 was the year my top two, became the big three. Hal o the Wynd now stands comfortably in line with FVF and Blackwoods Flake. I probably went through twice as much HOTW as any other single blend. I may well have smoked as much HOTW as FVF and Blackwoods Flake combined.

1. 4noggins Thomas' Blend (what else?...)
2. Frog Morton's Cellar
3. GH Kendal Gold
4. Mac Baren HH Old a Dark Fired
5. Esoterica Tillbury
6. 4noggins Trout Stream
119: Some homemade rum rope which scarred me and left me utterly speechless with disgust and anger at such an indecency.......

Probably 4noggins was my top brand
