    So what are some of those really traditional tobies that were smoked back in the day (like Velvet or along those lines)? Back when guys tended to stick to one blend or so. Any thoughts?

    If you hit an antique shop, you can find lots of tobacco tins that you've heard of, or that might still be made - Half and Half, Granger, etc.
    But there's dozens and dozens that you'll never have heard of. Brands like "Players" had all sorts of pipe mixtures, and independent tobacco houses had their share too.

    "Barney's: The Ideal Tobacco" sounds pretty.... ideal. LOL

    The “Middleton’s Trinity” Carter Hall, Cherry Blend and Prince Albert are my favorite classic tobaccos. :th1:

    Revelation, Field & Stream, Union Leader, Mapleton, Country Doctor, Sugar Barrel, Cookie Jar, come to mind. I'm sure there's many more.

    If any of you knew Morleysson (Bob Runowski), he was the best resource for old OTC's. The guy was a walking encyclopedia. RIP, Bob.

    I never had the pleasure myself but judging from its reputation the original Balkan Sobranie seems to be 'The' classic. For me though it would be St Julien.
