    Recently, I was taking an inventory of my stash. I realized that all of the many blends that I have fall (very broadly) into one of four tobacco categories:

    1. Latakia / English / Balkan
    2. Virginia or VAPER
    3. Burleys
    4. Aromatics

    I started thinking about the fact that even though I have quite a few blends from each of these four categories, most of the time, I smoke Latakia / English / Balkan blends. The breakdown for me is roughly:

    1. Latakia / English / Balkan -- 95%
    2. Virginia or VAPER -- 2%
    3. Burleys -- 2%
    4. Aromatics -- 1%

    So, I'm curious as to what the percent is for others in terms of how often they smoke blends from those categories. Please feel free to add categories that I haven't included.

    I'm still new to pipesmoking, I've smoked my first bowl in Sept 2012. At the beginning mostly aromatics, then I tried Va's...then VAPERs, in which I found my weed of happiness. A few times I tried english blends, but I guess I'm not ready yet. I can stand Latakia only in very small doses. I haven't tried any lakelands yet. The only pure Burley I've tried so far is C&D's Burley Flake#3 and I couldn't smoke it. I got a irritation of the throat and coughed all along.
    So, at the moment it is:

    Virginia or VAPER 93%
    Lat/English/Balkans 5%
    Burleys 1%
    Aromatics 1%

    Due to seasonal variations/ a tendency to smoke more of newly opened tins it varies continually through the year.

    To be honest a lot of what I enjoy is actually what might be called "light aromatics or crossovers" but that runs the spectrum in all catagories including: Sillem's Black and "the Frogs" in the Latakia blends; LTF and McC 2000 in the Virginias; Sugar Barrel and Cherry Blend in the Burleys. Trying to work by your guidelines I would say:

    Lat/English/ Balkan 10 - 20 %
    va, vaper 20 - 40 %
    burley 10 - 20 %
    aromatics 30 - 50 %

    Burley - 70%
    VA's - 15%
    Aro's - 10%
    Eng. - 5%

    * I only partake (1 bowl) 1 day in 3, so this is my best guess.

    Never thought much about it. I smoke different stuff every day. Guess I smoke stronger stuff more often. I love nic bombs.

    It varies week to week and month to month, but I'd say roughly, something like this:
    1. Virginia / VaPer 45%
    2. Burley 45%
    3. Lat Blends 9%
    4. Aromatics 1%

    VA/VA blends/ Vapers - about 70%
    Latakia - about 15%
    Burley/Burley blends - about 15%

    Occasional aromatic, but then again I don't consider lakeland blends as aros. If you do, you can chop about 30% off the VA list and add it to aros.

    Burleys 75%
    everything else 25%
    Generally smoke Sugar Barrel and Epiphany as everyday smokes. The other 25% is all of the sampling I do looking for another 'go-to' smoke..
