These are mine for now in no particular order:

Seattle Pipe Club Snoqualmie Falls
Seattle Pipe Club Vashon Island
Sutliff's Blend No. 5
Carter Hall
Orlik Mellow Mixture
Daughter's and Ryan English Hoopla
Dan Tobacco Bill Bailey's Balkan Blend
John Patton Storm Front

I find my tastes are always changing! That's what pipe smoking is all about.

Favorites that I smoke a lot? The only ones I smoke with any consistency are LBF and, strangely, SWR Aromatic. I have other favorites, but they have been relegated to a holding position while I sample a host of other blends, usually whatever I see recommended by anyone who remotely sounds convincing. That's not good judgment--it's curiosity. In other words, I'm not smoking my other favorites, which is a hell of a state to be in. There's just not enough hours in the day. On the plus side, the favorites I have closeted away are gaining in age. Epiphany, Escudo, various MacBarens, various McClellands, etc., blah blah blah.

I don't turn tins fast enough to really establish a pattern, but ones I keep buying are:

MC C VA (22, 24, 25 and 27)
MCC St James Woods
Solani Aged BUrley
Solani Silver Flake
GLP Triple Play
Dan Hamborger Veermaster
IRC Blue
Captain Black Red Sky (and some other cherry - still exploring)

I am backed up on Latakia blends so have no favorite. Too many to still explore.

I seem to go through Flavours of the Month that seem to depend on temperature & mood - the colder it gets, the bigger the baccy, though at a certain point I give up and stay indoors. Very Happy

Right now I'm reaching for

MacBaren Golden Extra
Solani ABF
MacBaren HH Vintage Syrian
Orlik Dark Strong Kentucky
St Bruno
Nightcap
Kramer's Blend for Carey Grant
