Hello everyone. My first real post here. I've been a pipe smoker for a while now, but still searching for my blend. I've eliminated ANYTHING with Latakia. Just not for me. I can tolerate Orientals as long as they are in the minimal. I tend to lean towards VA/PER's but as of late I'm finding some ( Escudo Navy Deluxe) to be too "bright" and "lemony" and not enough Dark tones or spice. Recently I've taken on G.L Pease Fillmore and i've found it to be "darker" and more spice dominant. Does anyone have any other recommendations for a VA/PER's that stays dark, complex and spicey? I'm looking into G.L Pease Triplr Play or Jack knife Plug. Thoughts?
