    Need some recommendations guys.....I plan on making a TAD tomorrow and I want to find something else to smoke besides Latakia...I mean I love Latakia but I'd like to find others that I love as much.....I've tried both McClelland Bulk #110...and McClelland Bulk Avenue Blend Nutty Hazel. Did not care for either as they both bite.....Not looking for an aromatic either.....I suppose I'm looking for a Virginia blend of some kind that is smooth and sweet....any help would be great.

    BG try and get a few ozs. of McC 5100, it should fit the bill for the kind of VA you're looking for.

    +1 An outstanding red virginia, light and clean tasting and easy to smoke. Ideal for warmer weather or year round smoking. One of my personal favorites from the McClelland line.

    If you haven't yet, pick up a tin of Orlik Golden Sliced. Smoking Pipes.com has OGS 50g tins for $6.22 each. OGS rubs out very nicely and is a light but tasty smoke.

    All of these are great recommendations. Anny Kake and AJ's are two of my favs. I was a Latakia buff too until I discovered Vapers. Now I love both so I have twice as much tobacco to buy :bing:
