    Never again will I mix an English with an Aro. Even at a low ratio, I've learned they do not necessarily compliment each other. I'm still blending a small amount of NC with my EMP, but the aro's have to stand alone.

    Yep, doesn't sound like a good idea to me.

    Well, 10 points for originality, John, but you're right, I wouldn't recommend it. Now if you chose to try adding a little vanilla to an English, or some brown Cavendish, that's another matter. :sh:

    Ya like that, eh? :D Jeepers.... IW Dr. Bradley Mixture. Whee doggie. I guess a lot of people like it though.

    But, as an philosopher just told me, "If everyone liked the same thing there'd just be one kind of tobacco, right?"

    True. But it would probably be Sobranie or Edgeworth or something else that's dead as a doornail.

    Hey, I kind of like Dr, Bradley once in a while. I picked up a 7 oz pack about 18 months ago when I was in Chicago. I should be finished it by about 2015. And speaking of Sobranie, there are plenty who seem pretty much convinced that the stuff had deer tongue in it. So the archetypal Lat-mix may be an aromatized one.

    Don't forget Pembroke, Voodoo Queen, Count Pulaski, Britt's Balkan, SG's Navy Flake, Epiphany.

    Just to be contrary, I'm going to throw together whatever Lat-mix and aromatic are within arm's reach. That would be Artsian's Blend and Nat Sherman's 314.... well...maybe not.

    I like asparagus. I also like butter-pecan ice cream. I doubt I'd enjoy the combination of them so much though. I suppose it's only natural that the same holds true for tobacco.
