    I really like the flavor of Billy Bud -- I'm guessing that it is the cigar leaf mixed in. However, it is too strong on the nicotine side for me to smoke much of it. Anyone have any recommendations on a similar tasting blend with less of a kick?

    Oh and the title of this thread should say "Nicotine", not "Nictonine"... Oops...

    Thanks, I'll add that to my list. The only other cigar leaf/latakia mix I could identify that might be miler is "COUNTRY STORE AROMATIC" by Sterling Tobacco. Anyone ever try this one?

    If you smoke enough of it it won't bother you anymore ;) , Purple Cow is not as good as Billy Budd IMO.

    Dang, was just watched a video on YouTube, the other day, that stogie farts did, he talked about a blend that he considered a little brother to billy budd. I look when I get off work.
