    thank you Jim. It's only been 5 days and smell great already. I think I will divide it into 2, one for immediate use, one for longer pressing just to see if it have any difference.

    I blended Cavendish made with Costello Negro, halfers with Pergeu Brazil rope, and I'm very satisfied.

    I've been fine tuning my homegrown flue cured Costello Negro / WLT dark air cured blend. The proportions are as follows:
    This much Costello (top) and that much dark air (bottom).

    I love the ratios in your recipe China. I've recently warmed hugely to the fact that no two blends we make will be the same and that this heterogeny should be embraced, not resisted. There's really no reason to measure everything down to the gram.

    CV, My blends that use dark air usually go lighter on it. I consider it the double base violin or the tuba. It's wonderful when it's there, but more cowbell is not necessarily better cowbell.

    I walk the razor's edge between chaos and serenity with this exacting blend.

    IMG_0481.jpg I smoked Pearl of Shabam WLT blend by deluxestogie. The pipe is a Lorenzo Spitfire that I did a custom rustication on and sent off to Briarville Pipe Repair and Restoration for a custom acrylic stem. I smoke this pipe day in and day out. Although I have others to rotate this is my main pipe and will smoke it until the cows come home.
