    Don't get me wrong, I enjoy the unabashedly complex GLP-esque blends like the rest of you, but it is getting warmer here, and try as I might, when I am outside I don't take it easy on my tobacco.

    So what can you recommend in the way of tobacco that is as forgiving as a nun?

    By not taking it easy on your tobacco, are you wanting something you can puff heavily and not get bitten? Not sure what you mean by forgiving.

    Yeah, a bit vague I guess. I meant not prone to biting your tongue if you get carried away.

    Dan Hamborger Veermaster (Hamstah Beastmaster :) ) is great outdoors (it's a flake) and it is rather gentle even when pushed. Full of Va flavors and a pleasant smoke.

    GH Rum Flake is another great one and can be pushed rather hard.

    Pushing too hard brings the flavor down but in these two blends, I've not noticed this. If I get no flavor from these two smokes and I know I'm lit, I'm pushing too hard.

    My go to blend in your shoes would be FMOTB, or some other fairly easy going latakia blend, followed by one of the OTC's, CH, PA, SWR aro.

    I look forward to see what recommendations you get on this one!

    Orlik Golden Sliced is mild, but tastes good.

    McClelland Red Cake 5100 (a bulk) is even more so.

    Yeah , Middletons Walnut , no doubt . Also , many all black cavendish blends just smoke cool if nothing else . SG 1792 is a cold smoker when it's ready . Altadis Chocolate Mosse smoke pretty damn cool .Wessex Burley Broadcut is another . Sutliff St. George , Stonehaven and SWR/PA .

    A more obscure one - McClellands Royal Cajun Ebony. Nice deep, dark VA taste and no bite. Can be overpuffed but isn't a wispy-flavored sugary mess that'll go south on you in a hurry.

    Lots of good suggestions here. Walnut and #5100 also stand out in my experience.

    Lane's BCA is the most forgiving thing I've ever smoked.

    Have I mentioned Ennerdale lately? It won't bite you, and is quite tasty too.

    Yes, you have.........:ohyh:

    PS Luxury Twist Flake (mildly aromatic) comes to mind and it burns readily whether rubbed, fold/stuffed or canon-balled. I've puffed this one pretty fierce while hiking and don't remember it biting me.

    I have found Presbyterian to be the blend least likely to bite. It is the blend that converted me to English blends.
