Hi guys, first post here.

I was wondering if you guys could help me conduct an experiment. I am a big fan of Van Nelle's RYO zware shag blend. I understand this blend has got some fire cured Kentucky, Latakia and air cured Paraguaian tobacco, but I don't know much else (like the proportions). I would like to replicate, to some degree, the flavour and fullness of Van Nelle's blend. Could you point me to some brands, blends, and websites I might be able to get the tobacco from. I was just abount to get a few ounces of McConell's bulk Latakia, Kentucky as well as Cornell & Diehl's Bulk Latakia. I am specially lost regarding the air-cured Paragay tobacco, if you have any idea wherer can I get some, or what might be a good substitute, it'll be apreciated.

Regards

I'm at a loss here but welcome you and am thrilled to see your first post is deeply tobacco centric. Blending Paraguayan sounds like the tough one to me. Perhaps you could find it or a substitute at one of the whole leaf websites. Some here know much more about that than me. Also, I know nothing about a recipe for that product, sorry. But good luck, forever onward.

Either you're looking for Habano Viso or Mata Fina. Both are primarily grown in Brazil, but as Paraguay shares a border, it is most likely these two you might be looking for...
