My favorite blend is Old Ironsides. I know I won't be able to copy it but I would like to get some components based on OI contents. It's listed on TR as containing Oriental/Turkish, Kentucky, Virginia, Latakia. The only Kentucky I know of that will give the needed body of OI is G&H Kendall Kentucky. I was going to get some C&D Izmir Turkish, Bulk Latakia and some Virginia. Which Virginia do you think I should start with? What percentages do you think I should start with? Thanks.
