What would it be? I'll be visiting the retail outlet of Smokingpipes.com next week and plan to stock up on a variety. I'd really appreciate hearing from some of you veterans. I'll use your answers to help compile my shopping list. Please answer only with the name of blends that are readily available.

Three that I have enjoyed and smoke for well over 30+ years now are :

* McC's Fragrant Mature 2000 , my favorite straight Red Va
* Dunhill's Royal Yacht , gives one a healthy dose of Lady"n'
* Presbyterian, probably one of the smoothest ALL DAY Balkans you can smoke with just the right balance of Latakia/Orientals/Virginias !
You might find one or all of these to your liking. Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

In no real order my thoughts would be like this...

McC's Red Cake 5100
Sammy G's St James Flake
Sammy G's BBF
PS LBF (just discovered this little belter)
MacB's 7 Seas Regular (Capt Black), [I can hear the groans].

That's me!

Really? We'd have never guessed Ron Very Happy .

As for me - it's PS LBF if I can get it or soap Condor Long Cut if I can't.

Luxury Navy Flake. I actually read this thread earlier and was pretty sure it was LNF, but the responses reminded me that I quite like Escudo so I had to smoke a bowl to make sure. And I'm sure: LNF. Is it weird that a bulk tobacco is my favorite?

If I could only smoke one, it would be Escudo or Dark Bird's Eye. Probably.

I could never pick one. But if I had to I'd go Solani 660. If I was allowed a latakia, Peretti Tashkent.

Embarcadero.

Just a few years ago, I'd have said Tilbury. With Tilbury a chore and a half to find, I discovered that Laurel Heights gave me the same experience. I thought this was weird; I still think it's weird.

I could live with nothing but BBF if it came to that. I fear I'd tire of its richness.

My pipe smoker's nature cannot be restrictced to only 1 tobacco. So it's impossible for me to answer the question.

Ditto. I enjoy and am accustomed to variety far too much for limitations at this point.

If all pipe tobacco makers suddenly decided to sell their souls to Cartaphilus and produce Escudo only for the next few years, I would just turn to my well-stocked cellar of tobaccos, snuff and cigars to keep me entertained.

If the person who told me I could only smoke one blend was smaller than me, I'd fist fight him/her and refuse to limit myself.

If the person who told me was bigger, I'd grudgingly play along. In which case, GLP Telegraph Hill would be the blend.

When this subject comes up every so often, I always go into my "love-hate" mode of answering. I love the question; hate having to come up with an answer. I have no "one" 'baccy;" I must have 50+ blends sitting behind me or buried in the closet!!! I haven't inventoried for quite a while. I usually think of our seldom-heard-from brother, Justpipes, when this question is posed...And can see him answer "WALNUT!!!!!" every time and on cue!!!! cheers FTRPLT

Well if I could only have one I suppose I might choose Sutliff PS Kasimir, all things considered. This is tough, there are just so many great blends.

One blend, limited quantity for a specified time period? Or one blend, unlimited quantity? Seems like that would influence the choice. Smoking one blend for, like, forever, Dude, requires some heavy cogitation.

I was thinking one blend, unlimited quantity, but that's for the OP to define.

Ask me tomorrow and chances are good I'd make a different choice than I have, thus proving my inability to choose one blend to have and to hold forever and ever amen.

Doesn't say much for my character does it.

Afterthought: I think it would be interesting to see JimInks wrestle with this question. Smile

I originaly suggested three blend/mixtures but I'll do as requested and say that if I had to pick just ONE to smoke always it would have to be McC's FM 2000 the absolute BEST Red Va available !! cheers cheers
