    Interesting thread. I think it changes for me. Currently:

    Burley 75%
    Va/VaPer 15%
    Lat 5%
    Aros 5%

    In the summer when I can sit on the deck it's more like:

    Va/VaPer 90%
    Burley 5%
    Lat 4%
    Aros 1%

    I find VAs burn very slow, my favorite summer activity is sitting on the deck watching the sun set with a big ol bowl of VA and some beers...ahhh looking forward to that

    100% aromatic. Of those...most blends are 50%+ made up of black cavendish. A couple (i.e. SWRA), are not.

    :ohyh: I got to smoke on the back deck yesterday for the first time in a couple months (about 63* out and sunny). I went through a couple bowls and just chilled out there for a bit. I can't wait until those days are the norm (about another month here).:toast:

    This is an interesting question. Since I've kept a log the last two months of my pipe smoking I won't have to guess at numbers -- on the other since I hadn't planned on tracking blend percents (and I'm too lazy to compile all the data today) I just went back and picked a couple of days at random.

    One day I was at
    Eng/Lat -- 45%;
    VaPer 37%; and
    Burley 18%
    with no aromatics on that day.

    On another day it was
    37.5% Eng/Lat;
    37.5 % VaPer; and
    25% Aromatics
    with no Burley.

    1. Lat blends - 70%
    2. Vapers - 10%
    3. Aromatics - 10%
    4. Everything under the sun for 'work' puposes - 10%
    This is a change from what I used to smoke before coming to STG Lane. I use to smoke aromatics 90% of the time.
