    Hi everyone! I'm a newbie to the site, and am glad to be here.

    Over the past couple of months, I have bought many 1 oz. samples of aromatic's. I have a few favorites, but wondering what to do, with the one's that are just so-so. One idea, is to mix them all in a larger container, and use it sparingly, rather than waste it. Is this sacrilege, or not such a terrible idea? If so, do you have any other ideas. I just don't want all these individual zip-locks hanging around. Maybe by mixing them, I'll enjoy them more anyway!

    Anyway ... such a big problem, right? :dunno: Thanks for any suggestions.

    That is what i do with alot of my so-so aro's, i blend them to make different blends till i find one that i really like than i blend a bunch up and have a new and improved smoke. I find it very fun to blend even with aro's i like, i am all the time finding new combo's of toby that are just excellent, maybe this can work for so you aren't wasting any toby.

    Or offer to trade them in the trade section. Or even give it to someone who likes it - it is just a small sample and its not like giving away something of great value.

    I like that! That's a good way to look at it.

    I say go for it.. what will it hurt?? who knows.. you might find something you like.
    Ive been meaning to do this.. maybe mix something with some lat..with a light aro with a touch of vanilla..who knows... it might work... then again.. some Latbomb fanboy might come along and flame the dogpiss out of me :)
    Go for it bro, smoke what you like, and like what you smoke! and damned if anyone else tells you otherwise.

    I agree 100 percent with this statement!

    By the way, mixing Latakia with a Vanilla makes for a great tasting blend!

    Right on! I often mix C&D Green River Vanilla with Mclelland Blending Latakia. It's awesome!

    I learned doing this from a local B&M. He mixes 1Q and PS English Blend together in his shop as a house blend and it's his best seller.

    I've tried mixing with very little success so far. If I find a blend to be marginal I save it in case my taste change or the tobacco improves with age, if I really don't like it I trade it off or give it away. Trading is a great way to try new blends yourself.
