    Yesterday I had a cigar with my morning coffee(Bolivar Petite Corona).......then another after lunch(Partagas Petit Corona Especiale).Last nite I lit up my pipe with some Frog Morton's Cellar....nothing.After letting the pipe cool down I decided to move inside and try some Peterson's Sunset Breeze...again nothing.

    I think I need to find some stronger pipe tobaccos to smoke on CIGAR day.Any suggestions for stronger tobaccos that can be tasted after a couple cigars is appreciated.

    I find Lane Half and Half to have a pretty bold flavor. Not a massive nic hit, but lots of flavor.
    I do notice though, if I smoke it exclusively, by the end of the day, the flavor fades a bit.

    You can add GH Kendal Kentucky & Dark Flake to this too. Anything with Kentucky Dark fired leaf should have some oomph to it. But none will hit as hard as a good cigar like the ones you mentioned. JMHO

    Ropes, of course, are generally decently to very strong. I like GH Sweet Coconut Twist, and it's pretty strong.

    Okay, I love strong tobacco....but I'll only list the things I have both tried and enjoyed. A few of them are among my favorites....

    Samuel Gawith - 1792 Flake
    Petersons - Petersons Perfect Plug/3Ps, Irish Flake, University Flake, Irish Oak (IF is strongest of these, imo followed by Irish Oak, but none are lightweights)
    Gawith, Hoggarth, & Co. - Kendal Dark, Dark Flake, Coconut Twist, Maple Twist, Bosun Cut Plug, Dark Birdseye - of these, Bosun Cut Plug is the least nicotine-y, but still solid
    Dunhill - Night Cap, Royal Yacht
    Cornell & Diehl - Old Joe Krantz, Odessa, Night Train, Haunted Bookshop, Kickin' Chicken (limited edition for PSF, probably won't be made again :()
    G.L. Pease - Jackknife Plug/Jackknife Ready Rubbed
    Condor Long Cut
    Esoterica Tobacciana - Stonehaven
    Butera - Kingfisher - very hard to find, quite possibly out of production permanently

    Anyway, not all of these will make my head spin, but then I smoke this type of stuff often. Most of them should satisfy at least as well as a cigar in most cases. If I neglect this type of stuff for a while and just smoke milder stuff and then smoke a bowl of one of these..whew...it can really hit me!

    Oh yeah, and I guess Erinmore Flake gets honorable mention as well

    C&D Blockade Runner, and Burley Flake #2. Both put me to sleep on the couch.

    Cornell & Diehl Habana Daydream has a nice kick to it. I'm talking flavor here because I cannot gauge nicotine content in any blend. It has a spoonfull of cigar leaf in it but in my opinion it only tastes a little bit like a cigar. It does have that same full flavor effect that I get from cigars though.

    When I smoke a cigar there usually is a very satisfying "flavor" that lingers in my mouth for 20 minutes or so afterwards, reminding me that I just smoked a real butt kicker. Hard for me to describe but I get that same effect from Habana Daydream.

    I guess I misunderstood the question. I thought the guy was asking about flavor, not nicotine.
    If a buzz is what you desire, just cram a lucky strike in your pipe.

    That's what I got from the original post too. Ron wants something he can taste after smoking a few cigars.

    I took it to mean you were used to the nicotine after smoking a few cigars. Still, most of my suggestions should work just fine. I'd think some of the more robust latakia mixtures would be good, too. Frog Morton and the likes are pretty low key, mild blends. Something like Margate, Odessa, Odyssey, or even Balkan Sasieni should be a step up from that. You might want to strike Uni Flake and Erinmore Flake from my list though. And add on any number of good Virginia/perique blends. Personally I love McConnell's Scottish Cake

    The aptly named Kicken Chicken should suffice.

    +1 on Tambalaka. It's strong in taste, fragrance and vitamin N.

    You might like Virginia Spice. It has some cigar leaf in it and it's fairly strong.
