Just wondering if any other brothers (or sister) enjoy the occasional tobacco parfait. I'm finishing off a tin of McClelland's No. 22 and it wasn't quite enough to fill my bowl. So I topped it with a bit of Samuel Gawith's Commonwealth. I'm right at the point where the two are mixing. Pretty tasty.

I do a couple a week. Sometimes by plan and sometimes by circumstances. I have way better luck with parfaits than impromptu "home blending".

I just caught your thread Tock and I had never thought of actually parfaiting tobacco in a pipe, so I decided to try it. I don't know if it is actually a parfait, but i folded some PS Navy and PS bullseye together and all I can say is WOW!

Often; usually in a cob.

Often, but it's usually whisky and beer. Does that count? I mean I have a pipe full with it.

Wouldn't it be cool for a manufacturer to make tobacco that is meant to be half and half?

Say for instance, GL pease makes a tobacco called "Two Tone" and it is only sold two tins at a time (Tobacco A and Tobacco B) because they are meant to be stacked?

I have been thinking about the logistics of this for a while now...

Okay, so that pretty much just tasted like Commonwealth... XD

And Maiser, I would totally buy that. Potential label?

Hard to admit this, but had a bit of Quiet Night left in the bowl from last night, decided to top it off with some Pelican rather than trying to go it alone...

Mixing DGT and Parfait is not something I am proud of, and I shall not oft do it, nor ever admit it again Smile

How about calling it "Half and Half"?

I do the parfait thing every now and then. Today I tried a blend of RLP-6 and some Peter Stokkebye luxury navy flake. Really sweetened things up and made a copious amount of smoke to boot. I actually enjoyed it quite a bit...

If my OCD allows me to, I will try the parfait. It sounds interesting.
