Which was the first tobacco blend you fell in love with?
Stanwell Melange. Back in 2003-4? God I loved the smell. Nowdays I cant even look at the pouch. My taste has changed so much...
Ashamed to say it was Middleton's John Rolfe Peach Brandy blend. I was just taking up the pipe and our organist smoked John Rolfe. I was stuipid and knew no better. It smelled great, but bit like a barracuda. I admit I went from there to Cherry Blend. (I said I was stupid). Finally, after wandering through several OTC blends, an upperclassman turned me on the English blends. The rest is history, although I still enjoy aromatic blends from Boswell.
Falling in love with a blend, that's heady stuff. It is the moment when you finally feel at home with something. That can be quite a shock, as it was for me when I found that my favorite blend had become Royal Yacht. But those powerful, sweet and yet sustaining Virginias never left my mind once I realized I was reaching for the tin more than any others.
For me it would have to be ROYAL HUNT. It was an old fashioned aromatic where the smells & tastes came from the baccy as opposed to being the sprayed on ones today.
St Bruno 🙂 Still love the stuff 🙂
An aged tin of Sunday Picnic set me down the road of cellaring.
I Started out in 1980, I smelled a wonderful aroma from the pastor at our church.. He said it was called honey clover. Which I ran and got some at the mall tobacco store in Houston. Went often to get more, then moved away to another city. Got caught up in work and years later started my pipe smoking again. Been at it now for the past 10 years and just cannot find anything like it. I sure wish I knew what blends they used. Back then I knew nothing about cavendish, burley, Virginia ...latikia etc ... man if anyone knows what a big thank you I would give you! AS you know smell is one of those great memory things.. right? I am sure you know what I mean.
