This is my first attempt to post a pic (fingers crossed)




Enjoying some of my own blend called Darth Va-Tur, a blend of dark Virginias and Turkish (no Latakia, Burley or Perique). Very flavorful and smooth. Here's the recipe if you happen to have these ingredients in your cellar:

I make in 15 gram batches as follows:

7 grams Peretti D-9507 (dark fired Virginia and Turkish Dubec)
3 grams Peretti Black Virginia
3 grams Astley's 44 (or Wessex Dark Virginia)
2 grams McClelland Black Sea Sokhoum

If you don't have any McClelland I tried another version using MacBaren Dark Twist which gives a sweet, savory BBQ note instead of the red VA and cigar notes of the Sokhoum.

You rang?

That does indeed sound delish, may have to give it a crack. I haven’t blended in ages, maybe a lock in hobby to take back up.
