Would you recommend either of those varieties to grow and air cure for use in a cigarette blend?
Mmmm, well, mayyybeeeee. That's what Indonesians use them for. They wouldn't make a Canadian or American cigarette.
Samporis is more sweet and acidic with some pungency. Needs air cured in the pipe to tone down tongue bite. Kasturi is really high in nicotine. Gives me hiccups. It's a beast. In the pipe it's easy on the tongue though.

Ha! I'm glad somebody else gets occasional hiccups from smoking. I thought there was something wrong with me.
