    Most aromatics are quite low in nicotine. Also most OTC burley blends (remember - MOST).

    Basically every type of tobacco you could like, except maybe rope tobacco, has at least a few opportunities for the smoker who is bothered by heavy amounts of nicotine.

    What do you like?

    There's exceptions to every rule, but generally I'd say that from lowest to highest you have:

    1. Cavendish based aromatics
    2. OTC burleys (PA, SWR)
    3. English or Balkan blends (contain Latakia)
    4. Straight VAs
    5. VA/Pers
    6. "Real" burleys (IF, C&D burley flakes)
    7. Stuff with African leaf
    8. Ropes, plugs, and tobacco that requires a knife to smoke
    9. Tambolaka

    :)

    Tough to make generalizations like that, though. What sort of stuff do you like? We might be able to give specific recommendations.
    You can also sort by brand with some success. McClelland and MacBaren tend to be pretty mild, whereas C&D and Peterson often pack a little punch.

    I have been enjoying the Fog City Selection of Virginia tobaccos by GL Pease, but since my doctor added some new meds to my routine the combination makes me lightheaded which I don't care for. I want to try tobaccos with lower nic levels and see if that helps.
