Speaking of Dark Twist, I am assuming Thomas is referring to Mac Baren DT Roll Cake (which) is great, Mac Baren Stockton is really good. And barely ever spoken of. Dark Twist is a little sweeter, but Stockton is a nice spicier variety of roll cake, almost as if you just had a tin full of the Kentucky Cav center coins and none of the coins with out.

I was referring to DTRC. Stockton sounds interesting. I should probably try it some time.

Re: PS, the VALC always bites me, too. I like Amsterdam and Natural Dutch Cavendish alright, though! English Oriental Supreme was something I remember liking, but it's been a few years. They are not the best around, but excellent for the price. I think new smokers could do a lot worse than to start out exploring PS bulks to find which genres they like without breaking the bank, then move on to other more expensive blends in the genres they prefer.

One more...Peretti Tashkent.

Quite possibly the finest Latakia mixture that I have ever put a match to. Definitely in my top 5 favorite Latakia blends.

I really like Captain Earle's Honor Blend. It's the only non latakia blend in the Captain Earle series.

Description: An all natural stoved blend of Red Virginias, mild Cavendish, Turkish and Perique tobaccos pressed in an old fashioned Crumble Cake.

I know some guys that are looking for non latakia orientals are aware of it. However, being the only non latakia blend in a series dedicated to serious latakia crumble cakes tends to keep it a bit under the radar.

Honor blend is one of my faves. One of the few blends that's very 'Turkish forward'.

I definitely consider you one of the guys "in the know" on that one.

One I think might fly under the radar a bit is Sutliff PS 1849. It's in my rotation and may be my over all fav VaPer blend.

I really like this one a lot, and I think the key to this blend is to wrestle open the tin, close it back up and let it rest for a month or better before dipping in. For whatever reasons when smoked straight out of a new tin this one is very unimpressive but really comes to life when aged even a little after opening.

Tobacco Galleria Classic Vanilla. A guy sent me some with a pipe I ordered off eBay. It's been my guilty pleasure ever since.

Mixture 79. If all I could get was an OTC from a small town gas station it would be this. I actually kinda like it. Yea the tobacco seems cheap and processed and it's shitty compared to the lakelands I smoke but it's unique tasting and easy to smoke

I tried it and really didn't like it. However, considering it's still around, it must sell pretty well, so plenty of people agree with you!

I really like Key Largo. I don't hear too many people say that.

Two inexpensive bulks of "low reknown" (I like that descriptor) from Peter Stokkebye . . .  PS Virginia Long Cut looks kind like it could double as a RYO, but it has an appealing straight Virginia taste and is easily the equal of much more "reknowned" and pricey tinned choices. Does very well as an "all day" smoke . . . PS Cube Cut is a Va/Burley blend that looks in the bag like thousands of little tobacco briquettes. Nice nutty taste. Gravity feed is the best approach to packing, I'd say. If you get the top layer going on the initial light it will often be a one match smoke, I've found.  Careful, clenchers, the briquettes, once lit, have a mind to hop out of the bowl onto your shirt. Both PS Long Cut and Cube cut age nicely.

I agree on both counts. PS Virginia Long Cut was one of the very first tobaccos I tried and PS Cube Cut was one of the first burley blends I tried out, so they are a little nostalgic for me too. VA Long Cut works well as a blender too.

I'm suprised Newminster SRS doesn't get more attention. I've been smoking it for a few months now and find it to be a nearly perfect all day smoke. The VA are pleasant (i.e. not soaked in vinegar) and nicely balanced by the burley (DFK). Simple tobacco flavor when you just want to smoke, but enough spice and complexity to make it interesting when you are feeling contemplative.
Mike.

SRS is a great bang for your buck smoke! I stumbled across this one when I stopped in a shop while traveling for work.

Some others I enjoy that I don't hear too much about:
Samuel Gawith Perfection
Smokers' Haven Exotique
McClelland Arcadia
McClelland Dark Star
