    I like to mix 50/50 St Bruno with Condor for a special after dinner smoke. What is your favorite custom blend?

    Solani Aged Burley Flake folded & stuffed in the bottom 2/3 of the bowl, topped off with Carter Hall.

    McBaren Dark twist and Club blend mixed aprox 50/50. McB Golden Extra mixed 50/50 with Butternut Burley makes for a nice light aromatic.

    I used to make a blend using C&D's Kelly's Coin, straight virginia and a dash of perique until C&D came out with their Burley Flake #3. Saves me the trouble of blending.

    I also mix about 15% perique in with Rattray's Black Virginia but it's more of a way to make the BV more interesting than to make a staple smoke.

    Trying to find something to go with D&R Picayune. Trying some heavy English flake with it. Jury's still out.
