I,am just getting back to pipe smoking. It is so relaxing. I like the English blends and I do know there are some great ones out there. I also know they vary greatly in strength and taste. After reading the thread on favorite English blends I realized there was no way to know if the tobaccos are too mild or strong. If we can get basically the same thing going with a number for the strength of the blend 1 being mild 4 being strong it would help.
