    Re: Pure Tobacco Pipe Blends You Can Make

    Are you looking for specific varietals to grow, or solutions using purchased leaf?

    Looking for varietals to grow. Preferably, something that can be air cured successfully. Thanks!

    There are two Orientals that are regarded as "strong": Samsun (sometimes listed as "Black Sea Samsun") and Trabzon (sometimes listed as Trebisond). Both are available from Northwood Seeds: http://northwoodseeds.com/Seed%20List2.htm

    My preference is to blend Orientals with Perique, to crank up the octane. Even a tiny amount of Perique brings about a change in the blend.

    Cool. I'm going to attempt perique this year with some of my cigar leaves...

    Which do you think would make a stronger but more neutral flavored perique - Havana 142, or Florida Sumatra?

    I took a peek at my Havana 142 and Florida Sumatra last night. Much of my Havana 142 is incredibly thin, and may not stand up to pressure curing. I have some upper stalk Florida Sumatra that looks nice a durable. Would this variety have any kick in perique form?

    Thin leaf holds up just fine in making Perique. I save my FL Sumatra tips (after kilning) as small, nearly black cigar condiments. They add both flavor and nicotine.
