Hey, Gang... I've picked up a couple of blends based on recommendations from members here namely 7 Seas Royal (my only aro) and FMOTT. Those two have won a permanent place in my rotation and I'm stocking up on them both. Now I'm taking some English/Scottish/Balkan blends out for a test drive to find 'The One'. So far, I've smoked GLP's Westminster, Kensington, and Blackpoint with the later two mixed together 50/50 for a 'just right' strength and flavor. I have a tin of McConnell's Scottish Blend on the way with my order for more 7 Seas Royal, and am going to get a tin of Dunhill 965. A couple of more that I want to try out are Gawith's Squadron Leader and Butera's Pelican, both of which are wildly popular and always sold out. I'm wondering just how much overlap there is in the English type blends...seems to be quite a lot really. With the Scottish Blend, the addition of Perique changes the formula away from the usual Virginia/Orientals/Latakia, so I'm keeping that as a seperate test. What English types have you guys smoked that are the 'same as'? Any that you find so similar as not to be very mush different from each other? Enquiring minds need to know!
