Awhile back I bought some Daughters and Ryan PenHooker 1lb bulk and enjoyed it a lot and on occasion added a pinch of St. James Parish Perique to a small batch and it was very pleasant.

I recently purchased a lb again and added a lb of their Windsail which I found to be drier than expected and while it smoked cool and tasted fine it smoked very quickly.

Now I'm one that has no problem with a short smoke and it's no surprise that I lean towards smaller bowled pipes but this was crazy fast.

I always buy Bob's Chocolate Flake by the 500 gram box so there is always a good amount around. While smoking some the other day when temperatures were in the 90's it wasn't the wonderful smoke I enjoy. On a whim I took equal bulk amounts of Bob's and Windsail and mixed them together in an empty OGS tin.

The next morning I made my coffee and w/o thinking I loaded my pipe from that tin. I wasn't prepared for what I was smoking.
Chocolate and orange goes together well and this is similar to the experience, it reminded me of sipping hot chocolate with a twist of orange peel then every now and then a little taste of cinnamon was experienced, all in all a lovely smoke smoking down to ash in the MM Diplomat with Plum Forever Stem.

I call this blend Bob Ryan's Daughters Chocolate Wind, take that FDA! Wink

now that sounds darn fine, and something I would be very interested in reproducing, I know bobs choc flake is available to me in the UK, but who makes or distributes windsail?

congrats on your flavour combo, and even bigger congrats on knowing how to replicate it again.

Off the top of my head smokingpipes.com and pipesandcigars.com sell Daughters and Ryan tobacco in 1 lb packages.

D&R tobaccos make fine bases for blends.
I use them quite often when I play "Mad Scientist" at home...... geek

as I suspected Daughters and Ryan tobacco is not distributed in the uk unless I use a different site and the min order is over a kilo of tobacco.

oh well I feel a small shopping spree due, we get paid in 2 days Smile

Mixing different blends and tobacco is just another fun thing we can do to make pipe smoking as great as it is. Smile
