    Re: Pure Tobacco Pipe Blends You Can Make

    I'm interested as well. I have Larry's dark fire and Don VA fire and have not played with any in blends yet. I like Bob's idea.

    There's another leaf with a smoky odor and taste equal to his VA fire. The black fronto. I tried some straight and I liked it and plan on using it just as I would either of the other two.

    Cheers, Bob. I might put some in a Va/Per with equal parts dark fired and perique. I'll keep the forum posted.

    1.5 Virginia Orangey =15% BB
    .5 Maryland 609 =5% WLT
    .5 Dark fire cured =5% BB
    1.0 Bursa =10% BB
    1.5 burley red tips =15% BB
    1.0 perique =10% WLT & BB
    3.5 Latakia =35% WLT

    If you like this blend let me know, if you think it stinks let me know. I liked it but thought it could improve. I have not played around with it anymore since making the first batch.

    Hum... didn't you forget some cavendish ?
    Apart from cavendish, you did put everything you can in this blend !

    Jim : More seriously, if you want to know what dark fired add to a blend, it may be easier to begin with a blend you already like and add just a pinch of dark fired in it (5 to 10% should be more than enough)
