    Does anyone know of any blends worth trying that would fall into this hypothetical category?

    I'm guessing if they exist, they will perhaps consists of vanilla, honey, whiskey, chocolate or caramel cased cavendish and Latakia in reasonable measure.

    The closest I've seen at present is probably frog Morton cellar, which was delicious might I add!

    Rich at 4noggins does a blend called Britt's Balkan which has "a slight hint of Vanilla" on it. I think it's a very nice blend. I was going to send you a sample (probably next week).

    P&C has Hearth and Home Mazateca, which is like Shortcut but dry and not all tasting of strong BCA. It's very good. The lat is lite but you can taste it. Peretti's Midnight is another one. It is all black tobacco. VA, Lat, Per. Smooth as a baby's bottom. The va is dark, not sure if its stoved or not. You can check it out on TR.

    Shipwreck from The Golden Leaf in Minneapolis and St Paul does this quite nicely. They don't have a website for sales, but will take phone orders if you're curious. Also I haven't tried any of them, but Pipeworks & Wilke seem to have a few blends that may fall in this category.

    I think this is not a bad list of possibles.

    Too bad the Frogs aren't available there as they seem intended to introduce aro smokers to the idea of English tobaccos and are not offensively aromatic to those of us who eschew aromatics as avidly as some religious people avoid pork.

    Although pork rinds, root beer, and a simple burley sounds pretty good right now...

    Sillem's Black may be another one for you to look at, there's Lat there, but a good bit of Aro as well. It wasn't one that I personally cared for tremendously, but may be something I should go back and re-visit!

    Boswells Northwoods is another to add to your list. Delicious stuff. For my palate I find this and Short Cut To Mushrooms to be in the same ball park with similar notes and such going on during the smoke.
    Asking such a question on PSF--thats a good thing because you are going to have a dandy list of stuff to look for and try.:byg:

    Seattle Pipe Club's Mississippi River is also one that I would recommend. There is an underlying sweetness to it that I can't quite describe, but it isn't cased at all (at least to my knowledge). It is the blend that officially crossed me over into the English realm.

    Keep an eye out for Balkan blends with cavendish. Some have enough that make it quite sweet. M965 has a nice sweetness to it...but its not terribly Aromatic.

    I'm going to second Northwoods. Awesome sweetness for a Latakia blend.

    When I first looked at this thread I could only think of a couple that match the description, I'm impressed with the number people have come up with.
